In most cases, fashion is fleeting, season by season your once favourite purchase can become the latest fashion tragedy to fall off the face of the fashion scene almost instantaneously.
While high street and high end all compete to produce the newest trends, have you ever noticed that new leather skirt in all the shops looks very similar to the same one you purchased a few seasons ago if so, you’re not alone!
Many styles stay in the past but there are those few fashion favourites that hit the season collections time and time again. An infographic by Chums celebrates those classic looks that hit the fashion seen time and time again. So, what’s #ATimelessTrend that you can’t get enough of?
The flapper girl
The flapper girl fashion was the most recognised trend to come out of the 1920’s. It was known that throughout these years women wore dresses all day, every day, through rain and shine. This style of dress was shapeless and ankle to knee length slip gowns usually paired with plenty of sequins and feathers. This look is ever popular today at Great Gatsby themed events.
The little black dress (LBD)
Widely known as the must-have item in any wardrobe, the LBD is the epitome of sophistication and the staple of women’s fashion. Better recognised for its appearance in the 1961 film breakfast at tiffany’s modelled by Audrey Hepburn, it’s the go-to item for any occasion.
Platforms and Flares
The trend of flares and platform boots were first introduced in the 1960’s, however, with Cher and Abba fans alike boosting the combination, they hit their peak in the 70’s. The high waisted flares have been seen in recent autumn/winter collections for a host of popular brands.
The 90’s brought with it the trend of double denim. The look encompasses two or more items of denim clothing in one look. More famously recognised on the likes of Justin and Britney and Bwitched throughout the nineties, it has since made its comeback with many celebrities showcasing this look today.
These iconic looks find their way back to the fashion scene time and time again, so before you have a clear out, consider whether your old favourites can be recycled for future use.
