Retro styles are incredibly fun to work with. Each decade has unique characteristics that define that particular time in history and all of them feature trends that continue to look great today. Let’s go back in the 80s. The 80s were defined by a unique blend of different styles that emphasized extravagance and materialism. Bold color was the norm, and also the oversized tops paired with leggings, tight pants or even a mini skirt.
The 70s had several style movements; a continuation of the 60s bohemian look, the glittery androgyny of glam rock and the decadent disco fashion. A tight-fitting concert t-shirt and hip hugger jeans with canvas sneakers or tennis shoes is what you need to wear in 70s for something more subtle. If you want a boho look, pair a flowing, gauzy top with a long maxi skirt.Â Let’s bring them back to our closet by checking out these 8 retro fashion styles that you will see popping up in stores and on sidewalks all year long below.
