Are We Going Back To 80s?

It seems like we are going backwards and welcoming old trends in a new way! 2016 was all about the 70s flare and 90s over-sized staple. It was a mixture of bohemian with cool and effortless style. Everything was way too over sized and had a flare, breezy and airy feel! Well, the 70s trend started from the end of 2014 and still continuing but this year the 70's trend was tried out with a twist. Trends of 90s like slip dress, oversized denim jacket and chokers were added to the flowy and bohemian style of 70s. But since couple of months the runway shows were moving on from the 70s and trying to bring back new silhouettes that were long forgotten. A fitted look with twist of 80s! Everything seems to be grungy, punk and dark for the fashion industry for couple of months!

I don't know whether it 's my misconception or not but I feel fashion world is turning in to more Gothic style and embracing the 80's nowadays! However recently  the 80's trend  is more refined and polished, compared to the laid back look that were adopted during  1980's. It's more sophisticated with a touch of grunge!


Did you notice that as well?

The fitted  and more polished look was what Versace resort 2017 show adopted. Where the silhouttes were simple, sophisticated but the theme colour was black! Colourblock bags shoes and jackets were seen the most!
