In every decade, there’s always a part where fashion trends from the past return and make a glorious comeback such as leather jackets 70's, wayfarers in the 80's, skinny brows in the 90's, and many more. This decade, the 2010's, it’s all about the 70’s from flared jeans, to culottes, and to suede and fringe in everything.

While so many gorgeous trends have been resurrected from the 20th century, there are still some that we wish would become trendy again! What are those? Well, just keep reading below for the list of vintage fashion trends we hope to see grace the streets and catwalks again!

--------------------------


Round Sunglasses

Cat eye frames, wayfarers, and oversized sunglasses are magnificent. They flatter every face shape and they protect our eyes from damaging Sun rays. But it’s time for round sunglasses to take the crown! They can flatter any face shape too, come in different sizes, and colours! It’s time to wear a pair that matches perfectly with our bohemian spirits.

Poof Skirt

Call us old-fashioned but poof skirts, the kinds our grandmothers used to wear, are divine! They can turn any OOTD into a statement, be dressed up or down, and they come in a variety of textures and materials so you can choose your favourite and rock it anywhere you go!


Hats

It’s unfortunate that no one ever wears hats these days, even though they can protect our faces from the Sun, make us look extra sophisticated, and work as a gorgeous accessory! They need to be an OOTD staple again soon! And we don't have to be stuck with just one since there are just so many styles to choose from besides the typical fedora and floppy hats, such as the cloche, a bowler hat, and a beret!


Fitted Rompers

Rompers are so comfortable and easy to wear, but we really miss the time when they were fitted! When they would hug your curves beautifully and emphasise your best assets, they were epitome of ‘effortless chic’. Plus, women who are busy will love them because they're so easy to wear, and they can make anyone look put together in under 5 minutes!


Sophisticated Leopard

Another trend that seems to have disappeared off the fashion radar, we understand that wearing leopard prints can be difficult because of its boldness. But when it’s worn the right way, it just look gorgeous and breathtaking! Whether it’s a coat, a pair of gloves, shoes, or an A-line dress, this print will look elegant and chic during the day and night!


Flapper Dresses

Forget bandage dresses, high-waisted shorts, and mini skirts because flapper dresses were the party outfit of the 1920’s, and it should be this decade’s too! Beautifully embellished, colourful, bright, and sophisticated, it’s no wonder why the women of that era had the funnest nightlife!

Black, white, gray, brown, beige, and other similar colours have one thing in common. They all belong to the ‘neutrals’ family. Neutral colours may seem boring for most people, but they can be just as bold and powerful as printed or brightly-coloured pieces!

Which is why for this week’s OOTD roundup, we wanted to show everyone that yes, neutrals, or 'Earth tones' as some may call them, are simple. But they can be just as loud as bright colours. So if you want to learn how to take your neutral wardrobe to the next level, check out our top looks for the week!

hannatantoco

Starting off this roundup is Clozette Ambassador hannatantoco. Her black and white ensemble oozes mystery and elegance with her sleeveless top, plaid bottoms, structured purse, and Mary Jane heels! Accessorising with a gorgeous pair of oversized sunglasses and a thick black bracelet made her outfit pop more! If that doesn’t exude power we don’t know what else will.

Chevronz

If you ever want to master wearing an all-gray ensemble, look for inspiration from Clozette Ambassador Chevronz’s outfit! She took flared pants up a notch by sporting them in a beautiful striped gray colour, with her top and hat matching it perfectly. And to break the tone of the look, she simply took a chunky silver necklace and a textured black sling bag to add some fun and texture in!


chescademesa

(clozette.co/chescademesa)



Shirt dresses are so versatile, no? The shades of Clozette Ambassador chescademesa’s black and white shirt dress were beautifully brought out by her caramel-hued purse, and gold bracelet! Classic pieces that can be worn wherever, whenever. And to complete her look and make it even more sophisticated, she sported another classic look, bold red lips which never fail to make a statement. 


awfullyamanda

(clozette.co/awfullyamanda)



Adding a youthful and fresh touch this winter is Clozette Ambassador awfullyamanda’s all-white OOTD! Her simple top, shorts, and sandals were all emphasised by her navy gray tote bag and her edgy red hair! Who says you need other colours to stand out from a crowd?


Vanessaxlim

(clozette.co/Vanessaxlim)



Adding extra height and dimension to Star Clozetter Vanessaxlim’s OOTD are her light gray flared pants! She paired them with a fitted black and white crop top, some black sandals, and a chic maroon backpack! This glamorous daytime outfit can even be worn to special occasions during the night just by changing the sandals for heels!
