History tends to repeat itself and this theory also holds true for the fashion world. Let’s catch up on the 6 throwback fashion pieces and give them a modern twist.
One of those era-diverse fashion must-haves that brands reinvented from female factory workers during World War II, overall has returned. Since it’s a very comfortable and cool one-piece fashion statement, you can make you casual street style more carefree and effortless. Like fashion blogger Aimee Song, think of wearing flared overalls with a chic bell-sleeved top to channel a trendy style of the past era. Or, go effortlessly cool like Jessica Stein wearing distressed denim overall with a plain white tee and sexy pumps.
Known in the 90s, chokers came a long way from being a mundane black, plastic necklace now worn from red carpet to the runway. You may also think of skinny chokers, as well as hybrid chokers in delicate, velvety material, gold trims, pearls, sequins, beads, faux suede, and leather to match your outfit.
- Doc Martens
Known in the hippie culture of the 1960s, Doc Marten boots aren’t just made for walking as they’re classic and utilitarian that can add some edge to your street style. Nowadays, you may even go for chicer versions of the grunge boots in the shades of purple, pink, yellow, green, red and such that can make a bold statement for you.
- Gladiator Sandals
Associated with Greek’s culture originally worn by soldiers, gladiator sandals are now a chic alternative for strappy flats that can make a bold statement on the streets. You may go for structured gladiators that will go perfectly with your denim rompers, but lace up gladiators are a lot more feminine and flirty that can make your style more fashion-forward and chic.
- Flared Trousers
Known in the 70s along with fringes and tassels, flared trousers can add some flair to your casual and office looks. For a more polished style, trade your classic black pants with a pair of flared trousers, but team it with a structured vest or blazer that will make the silhouette appropriate for the office. Also, flared jeans are great to spice up your basic tees, graphic tops, quirky print tops, and even tank tops, making them more comfortable and effortless for your casual street style.
- Button-Front Skirts
Carefree, gypsy-inspired, and retro, button-front skirts can serve you to channel your bohemian spirit by wearing it with peasant tops, bell-sleeved blouses, and off-shoulder tops that scream bohemian. On the other hand, to make the piece looks more modern, think of wearing it with a plain black tee, sequin tank tops, metallic blouses, cut-out crop tops and such that will make your style a bit unexpected. Indeed, these throwback fashion pieces are a great addition to spice up your street looks.
