Iconic vintage trends are back and better than ever. Runway designers around the world are putting an old school spin on their latest collections, bringing a fashion blast from the past to the 21st century. Our favorite celebrities—from Jennifer Aniston to Kendall Jenner to Gwyneth Paltrow—have all hopped on the vintage bandwagon.
And while there are some outdated trends that we wish never lived to see 2020 (heeled flip–flops, I'm looking at you), there are several others we hope are here to stay.
We're throwing it way back with this vintage trend, which first took root in Scotland back in the 18th century. However, most couture connoisseurs tend to associate the use of this fabric with Chanel's stylings. Back for this autumn is the tweed blazer, which has been revamped with a more modern and flattering look by several designers. Whether you pair it with jeans for a more casual look or decide to dress it up for your next Zoom interview, tweed is sure to add an element of style and sophistication.
Tie–Up Belly Shirts
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this trend, think your classic work button–down with an '80s disco makeover. Depending on the material and style, throwing on one of these timeless tops can keep you stylish while you're running errands or feeling fierce for a night out on the town.
Since the days of Queen Elizabeth I, wearing puff sleeves has been the ultimate power move. These sleeves were originally used to show off status and wealth, and it’s safe to say they still hold a similar reputation. They’re eye–catching and confidence–boosting, something today's designers have taken note of. And as the temperatures cool down, they're great for keeping you warm.
Move over choker necklaces, slip dresses are the new ‘90s staple taking over the fashion world. These pieces are the perfect blend of comfort and elegance. Inspired by lingerie, there's no denying that these dresses hold a unique level of intrigue and appeal.
Take a fashion risk this season and add some lace to your next look à la '90s Madonna. While this fabric has developed a bit of a rep as being reserved for wedding dresses and your grandma's wardrobe, lace has taken on a new life in 2020. We've been loving lace bodysuits as of late, which can be paired with your favorite pair of jeans or a simple skirt for a high fashion yet edgy look.
Of course, we couldn't make a list of our favorite reborn vintage trends without including the leather jacket. They're bold and versatile, yet simple. Furthermore, there are endless ways to style them. Make sure you have one in your closet for this autumn—you won't regret it.
Vintage is back, and we hope it's here to stay. Trends that are this iconic can persist across time.
