You have probably heard the saying, “history tends to repeat itself”, and that is definitely a true statement in the world of fashion. There are so many trends from decades ago that have made a major comeback and they are now considered to be wardrobe must haves! Here are some resurgent fashion trends you need to be on the watch for:
Bright Red Lipstick
Bright red lipstick was very popular in the 1940s through 1950s. Marilyn Monroe wore the red lipstick look all of the time making it an extremely popular look. The trend went away for a few years and a lot of women got into using new lipstick colors. Now in 2014, the biggest names in Hollywood, such as Taylor Swift and Christina Aguilera, are rocking bright red lips.
The top knot was made popular by the one and only Audrey Hepburn. If you have seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s, you know the famous look! Now you can find celebrities such as Hayden Panettiere, Nichole Richie, Lauren Conrad and more, are wearing the top knot. It is a look that is easy, fun, and sophisticated.
Leggings were big in the 1980s. You can probably pick up any workout video from that time and see everyone wearing them. Now, it is hard to find a woman that does not own a pair and they are not just worn in the gym anymore. Celebrities such as Emily Maynard, Dolly Parton, Hilary Duff, Julianne Hough, Beyoncé, and Jessica Simpson are just a few of the celebrities on the leggings trend.
Temporary tattoos used to be prizes found in Cracker Jack boxes and were primarily for children. They were not very well made and did not come in a large variety of shapes and colors, but for that time were very popular among children. Now, the temporary tattoo fashion trend has reemerged as an adult trend and is better than ever! In today’s fashion world, it is hard to tell a permanent tattoo from a temporary one. They have become and adult must have and a number of A-list celebrities wear them to red carpet events. The advantages to a temporary tattoo are obvious. As trends change, the old fashion icons can be traded in for new ones. Another benefit is that if you pick a design that doesn’t fly well, you can erase the mistake and try all over again. This hot trend is a fashion essential!
Denim on Denim
Marilyn Monroe wore the double denim in the early 60’s and I’m sure everyone remembers the Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears MTV Award outfits in the early 90’s. When you hear that denim on denim is back in style, I’m sure that most of you are probably thinking, “why?”, but it is true and you should probably give it another try!
Big Waves in Hair
In the 1920s, big waves were a famous look that most refer to now as the old Hollywood glamour look. Wearing big sleek waves in your hair is a very classy look. Celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian, and Blake Lively have most recently worn this beautiful trend.
Fashion is a revolving door of chance where some individuals are able to turn opportunity into real fortune while others suffer the wrath of public scrutiny for fashion faux pas. It takes courage to be a trend setter and a touch of class to be victorious among peers. Too often in today’s information age, bad choices are circulated for extended media cycles. History can make for setting a trend and for setting the example of what not to wear. Whatever you decide to do as a future trendsetter, you should be careful not to be too far out on the cutting edge.
