You may have noticed that trends appeared to be going back in time, with items that look like being brought from the days when our grandparents were young. Well, yes, the vintage trend is coming strong, being the fashion tendency for this year. So if you have something in your closet that is rather old, perhaps something left by your mother from her youth years, or even from your grandmother, wipe the dust of it because it is going to be hot. The greatest designers already embraced this trend, so anything that has as inspirations the 20’s, 50’s, 60’s or 70’s is highly appreciated both of the fashion podiums and in stores as well. If you missed the days when you were young, regardless of your age today, you should check Rokit for one of a kind pieces and more vintage inspiration.

Ralph Lauren, Coco Chanel, Gucci, Salvadore Ferragamo, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen are all designers that wanted to bring back the shine of the 1920’s. Men suits are created to look like being taken from the Great Gatsby’s. And for women, light colors, floral prints, glamorous boas made out of feathers, they all remind us of the soirees presented in black and white movies. For the 1950’s inspiration, styles made renowned by Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn are in the flashlight. For instance, Luis Vuitton brought back the beehive hair style and candy colors in the created clothes. Still, large flower prints and letterman jackets are in trends as well, together with short prom dresses.

To bring back the nostalgia of the 1960’s, Stella McCartney uses as inspiration the style started by The Beatles, using retro prints and those large oval sunglasses. Fendi used the grace of a Milanese woman, presenting A-lin lab coats and bouffant hairdos on their podium. Valentino marched on bright pink tops with matching skits, long to the floor, for a feminine and bohemian look.  The 1970’s are revived by creations like ones presented by Mulberry, which matched tulle dresses with leather jackets. Jimmy Choo is bringing back the platforms but in bright shades of orange, violet and fuchsia. Jumpsuits are also back in trends, long-sleeved or halter jumpsuits, like the ones present in the Mulberry and Kenzo.  Allow yourself to be fascinated by the vintage trend, and look fabulous.
