Fashion is an ever-evolving industry, with trends coming and going over the years. While some trends fade away completely, others make a comeback after a couple decades. As new styles are constantly appearing, we should take a look at some trends that have been popular, but got lost along the way. In this article, we’re gonna walk you through some elegant trends of the past that should be revived. For those of you who are into vintage fashion, this article is the perfect inspiration. And for the ones who are curious about this side of fashion, it’s a great starting point. Read along and get ready to go thrift shopping for all these items.
We are starting off with a trend that was once a common sight in fashion, adding color and personality to any outfit. Bold prints were seen from the 80’s, all the way to the 00’s in many celebrities’ outfits and in stores. From animal prints to florals, bold prints could be found on dresses, blouses and jackets everywhere. However, in recent years, solid colors and minimalist fashion have taken over, leaving this trend behind. We think that bold colors would compliment some minimalistic pieces perfectly in a modern-vintage combination that would look both elegant and unique.
Moving on to a piece that was once an essential part of people’s wardrobes, adding character to an outfit while serving functional and aesthetic purposes. Hats have become less common over time, with many people now opting for more casual headwear. Hats went out of style because of their formal and sophisticated look that is not very popular in today’s fashion. However, hats can still be styled casually and they will always add a touch of sophistication to an outfit. Whether it’s a fedora, a beret, or a cap, there’s a hat for every occasion. To revive this trend, you can check out some women’s hats that you can incorporate into your day to day outfits.
Next up we have one of the most elegant men’s accessories, pocket watches, that have been replaced with wristwatches and smartphones. Pocket watches were a symbol of elegance and sophistication, and they were often passed down from generation to generation. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, pocket watches were practical, as they allowed people to keep time without having to pull out a bulky watch. Today, the only people who still hold on to these watches are collectors, but we think they should come back into the fashion world. While pocket watches may no longer be a necessity, they can still add a touch of class to an outfit. Wearing a pocket watch is a great way to show off your style and pay homage to a lost trend.
Capes were once a popular outerwear option, adding drama and elegance to any outfit. Whether worn over a dress or with pants and a blouse, capes could transform an outfit into a statement look. However, in recent years, capes have fallen out of fashion, with more practical and utilitarian outerwear options taking over. They would make any modern look more fairy-like and they would be the best way to uniquely level up your outfits. It’s time to bring back this trend and add some glamor to your outerwear with a cape.
