Earlier today I was reading one of my favorite Canadian fashion magazines. It’s called LouLou.
Now I’m not usually one to read fashion magazines but earlier this year I subscribed to a few because I have some blogs that are related to shopping and well … if you read those kinds of magazines you’ll be up on the latest fashions, trends and deals.
I must say that the fashions this year all seem to be late 70’s to 80’s oriented. As I browsed through my magazine they were showing photos of models in mid-calf skirts and mini skirts and the photos looked almost exactly like ones I’d seen a couple of decades ago in fashion mags.
I actually really like some of the fashion trends for this year, but I must say I’m having flashbacks when I look at some of the designs!
I was only a teenager in the early 80’s, but I was up on current fashions, even if I did have to work with a very limited budget.
It’s not just clothing trends that have a 70’s to 80’s trend – jewelery, makeup and even perfumes are taking their cue from former decades. I can remember when Oscar de la Renta first came out with the perfume Paris, and when wearing Musk scented perfumes were all the rage.
What ’70’s or ’80’s fashion trend are you happy to see back? Are there any styles or trends that you’d gladly never see again? You know like Parachute pants or shoulder pads, big hair, the mullet? 😉
