The 70’s Are Back – And Here’s Why We’re Loving It

It’s so hard to keep up with trends, especially as brands are constantly pushing out collections. As seen both on and off the runway at SS19, the 70’s – and 80’s, to be fair – were in full force. From patchwork denim to corduroy, almost all the trends that we saw the year the mobile phone was invented are coming back into play. Fashion Week-goers and IG fashion enthusiasts alike are donning these reminiscent looks, and I don’t have any complaints.

See below to see a quick roundup of our favorites:

Patchwork Denim

Seen on the runway at Missoni, Isabel Marant, and Coach 1941, multi-denim is making a comeback. The DIY-esque fad is mostly being seen on outerwear, but jeans aren’t out of the question.

Even though in the Seventies they were often worn around the neck, pearls today have been making their way back through accessories such as jewelry, barrettes, and even handbags.
