Fashion Trends: 3 Ways 70s Style Is Making A Comeback
After our obsession with everything 80s and 90s, we have now travelled further back to draw style inspiration from some of the most fashionable figures in the 70s.
The 70s have truly made iconic history in the field of fashion from bold prints, disco-ready pants, to oversized fits. But among the many outlandish and glamorous fads, we've seen three major fashion trends that are on the rise once more; some have popped on our feeds, others have overtaken the runway for a while.
Genderless clothing and shoes are in
With street style on the rise, an extensive amount of unisex clothing has been made available in stores. This fashion trend admittedly made it easier for patrons to shop for clothes. This means you can finally purchase that edgy top in the men's aisle without hesitation. And yes, you can wear glam rock blazers as well.
Apart from clothing, men are also buying shoes that have been created in women's sizes. When the Women's Air Jordan 4 x Off-White™️ Sail sneakers released in 2020, men were not shy to purchase a pair. Goes to show that great style is genderless.
Bell-bottom pants are back in style
Flared pants were a huge trend in the 70s. These pants are skin-tight from the top but have wide drapes from the knee. Previously branded as "elephant bells" for their broad drapes, these pants have become an unforgettable fashion staple—and it's back. Today's flared pants are mostly adapted into yoga pants which makes them a comfortable piece to wear. Other versions of bell-bottoms are wide-legged pants that can be paired with heels.
Today, however, many have are wearing flared jeans which look incredibly chic when paired with 70s-inspired striped shirts and tees. Celebrities like Sophie Turner and Selena Gomez were also spotted donning this trendy piece as well.
Denim is front-and-centre
You might have seen denim pieces frayed at the hem for a while. But get ready to see more and more people don denim jackets embellished with various coloured patches just like the 70s. Adding these patches can make your denim pieces a tad bit more personal as it shows your own sense of style.
