Oops, they did it again. Some things that were in style a few decades ago are making a comeback, and we could not be more excited or nostalgic for the past. From slip dresses to overalls to flared pants, here are seven types of clothing that are coming back in style. These duds might even inspire you to play some of your favorite cassette tapes.
1. Slip dresses
Kate Moss wearing sheer slip back in the day is one of the most iconic images of this style. Once confined to the bedroom, the slip dress is now consistently spotted in street style photos and on the runway. We love this femininely draped silk Helmut Lang slip from Net-A-Porter. For a casual and modest look, layer yours over a white cotton T-shirt.
The thick feel of velvet is often associated with luxury and opulence. Thus, this material is often saved for dinner parties, galas, and other nighttime festivities. However, when worn correctly, it can be appropriate for daytime. Pair yours with a denim jacket to dress it down.
The grunge era was a controversial one that was either loved or hated by fashion enthusiasts and industry insiders. Like it or not, grunge is making a comeback. To really make a statement, mix clashing flannel prints, and top it off with ankle booties for fall.
4. Flared pants
Precisely tailored flared pants are both sophisticated and elegant. The silver accents on each side add a cool, hip feel to the 90’s staple. Cut from stretch-wool, these minimalist flares create an elongated and dramatic silhouette. Wear yours with black pointed pumps and a relaxed top for the office.
5. Crop tops
Believe it or not, crop tops have been around forever. The midriff-baring trend was a huge hit in the 90’s, think Britney Spears at the Billboard Awards and Paris Hilton’s “going out” tops. These baby tees now live in almost every woman’s closet. We love this basic Alice + Olivia crop top, which can be paired with anything from denim to A-line skirts.
This one piece wonder is casual and playful. Cut from Madewell‘s signature white denim, these overalls are complete with a classic bib at the front. The frayed trims and folded cuffs give it a worn-in effect. Complete the look with a crop top and a pair of sneakers.
7. Leather jackets
Last, but certainly not least, the leather biker jacket. Cut from soft, high-quality leather, the fit gets better with age. Designed for the modern woman, this Karl Lagerfeld design is complete with multiple pockets for your phone, keys, and credit card. The zipped cuffs and silver accents give it a winning edge. Wear yours with patent-leather ankle boots on a crisp fall day.
