The Reading is focused on those people who probably keep in mind cassettes. And the power of Grey Skull. If you do not you may stop checking out today. I’m not talking with you. I used neon socks in the 80’s along with matching fingerless gloves. And I liked ankle grazers when they were famous as pedal pushers/clamdiggers/cropped pants too.
I wore neon socks in the 80’s alongside matching fingerless gloves. And I wore ankle grazers when they certainly were called pedal pushers/clamdiggers/cropped pants, too.
I relaxed because my husband said to and I remember when skinnies were called drainpipes.
They are all signs that you’ve probably seen most fashions come and go.
I was excited to start to see the return of the Mac, sorry, After all the culotte last year, and sad to notice it reviled since the ugliest trouser shape know to womankind.
I’m unsure if I’m as excited to note that the 1970’s are going to hit us smack in the arse of our skinny jeans this coming season. If the fashion mags should be believed, high-waisted bell bottoms and um, lacing will function as shizz.
If you’ve already worn these fashions once, it sticks in your craw to use them again and it’s difficult to do so without looking like you’ve just been wearing them because the 70s.
Ok, I was only 8 when I had my first set of flares (and matching waistcoat – fashionista in the making) but the thought of wearing them again has me frankly terrified.
I’ve thought long and hard relating to this dilemma and I’ve got the following tips on the best way to re-wear a look from your youth without looking like you’ve been stuck in a time capsule.
Dilute the Trend.
Here is the most obvious kick off point to re-wearing a trend. If, as a 40-something women, you rock up at the college run in bell bottom jeans, fringed waistcoat and cork platforms, chances are you are going to get asked more than once whether you’re on your way to a fancy dress party. This is not a great thing.
Pick just one single area of the trend that appeals for your requirements the absolute most and wear that one. When you yourself have the legs for flares, choose it. If you fancy a little suede fringing in your handbag, choose that.
Don’t get it done all. Even the coolest amongst us can’t do a pattern check out toe.
Mix in your signature pieces.
We all have pieces that individuals wear all the time in the knowledge that individuals look and feel great in them. These might change with the seasons and as your style evolves, however, people will recognize you as “you” whenever you wear them.
For me personally, it seems to be slouch/drop crotch pants. Friends will often tell me that they saw a great pair whilst out shopping that they’re sure I’ll love.
So, if I wear going to select a piece of the 1970’s trend, I would choose a couple of platform boots and pair them with my slouchy pants. See? All an immediate, you’re rocking the trend, but you’re still dressing like yourself.
If you actually to wear a pattern for the next time, wear it with confidence!
And needless to say this whatever you ever wear. Should you feel great, you’ll look great and radiate confidence. Andrea Tonkin, stylist and blogger says “Dare to wear, and smile if they stare” that is such a great mantra.
Don’t let others dictate everything you wear, if you fancy trying to wear a pattern for the next time round then by the Power of Greyskull you need to absolutely give it a decide to try!
