RETRO STYLE CRUSH: Today’s trends & where they came from

From then to now we look at current trends we’re OBSESSING over,
where they started & who’s rocking it today!

1970's-crochet

1970’s CROCHET Let’s start with this one because we absolutely LOVE it! It’s pretty, slightly see-through (which is always a little fun) & goes so well with denim. We’re obsessed with crochet, whether it’s in accessories, dresses, playsuits or jumpsuits.

1577-corset

1577 THE CORSET Whether it’s worn as a top or just appears as a cute lace up motif. The corset has been around since the 1500’s & is still being reinvented today. We love dressing this style up or down. Wearing undergarments on the outside adds sexiness to your outfit whether it’s a slip silk dress or a corset top.

1970’s THE BOHEMIAN PEASANT TOP Is particularly relevant this season. Especially if you’re wanting to look & feel whimsical & free! We’re loving how this look is constantly reiterated by our favourite style icons. Wear it off shoulder or with capped sleeves, this top is always a winner.

1980’s CHUNKY SNEAKERS We’re turning back to the future in chunky sneakers! This trend is taking over again. These are super cute paired with a little dress & socks. Not so sure how long it will last, but we’re loving the nostalgia of it all!
