The future of the fashion industry at the moment appears to be in the hands of the past. With retro and vintage clothing holding a prominent position on the catwalk once again this season, it is clear that the future of the fashion industry is rooted firmly in the past. Over the last few decades, vintage clothing has become something to talk about.
In the past, second-hand clothing was seen as a sign of poverty and charity. And indeed, second hand clothes were considerably cheaper than new clothes. However, since the increased desire for vintage clothing, the industry has grown dramatically and many vintage clothes are now as expensive, if not more so than many high-street alternatives.
This season, the 70’s are definitely back and better than ever in this season’s wide-leg trousers. This inspirational style originated in the 20’s with women’s emancipation but this season in particular is inspired by 70’s style is flattering to all body shapes as it lengthens the leg and skims over the thighs.
Feminine glamour is also back this season with stunning 70’s inspired fitted waists and floaty skirts. This vintage look recalls a time when women embraced their curves. For a retro twist to a look like this, a vintage leather jacket can never go wrong for adding some verve to your 70’s inspired outfit.
Continuing the 70’s vibe, the boho look is also back. This vintage fashion look involves long floating maxi-dresses, layered jewellery and lots of tan leather.
To achieve your 70’s look this summer, have a look at both retro and vintage stores. When wearing vintage clothing it is important just to have fun with it and not be afraid to make bold decisions and step out of your comfort zone.
