A Nostalgic Future: How to Borrow from Past Trends

The rules of fashion seem to occasionally turn back the hands of a clock to trends of the past. This season, there are a few trends that are clearly borrowed from past style movements. From minimalism and grunge to bohemian, a nostalgic influence can be seen everywhere. But there is a style dilemma, years have passed since the first release of these trends. That means fashion has evolved and learned from styling mistakes. So if a trend is introduced a second time, it must be worn differently.

Now there are some rules to borrowing from past trends that should be followed or else you will risk looking like a fashion victim. If you are having trouble trying to take a modern approach to a vintage piece, look to fashion bloggers. Most likely the style bloggers you follow will be wearing a trendy piece with something borrowed from the past. For example, you might see a blogger wearing a pair of vintage Levis mixed with this season’s plaid top. The plaid top is something that is resurfacing, as a second attempt of the grunge trend. Paired with skinny jeans or vintage Levis you can welcome this trend into the modern world of style.

1. Pair a past trend with something that is timeless. Try jeans but stick with classic cuts. Try a bootcut or straight leg pair.

2. Use one trend at a time. If you want to wear a bohemian statement necklace, leave the grunge style top and minimalist jacket at home. An overload of any trend leads into style victim territory.

3. Make sure a past trend can fit comfortably into your wardrobe. If you have to buy many other pieces just so an item can fit, you probably should leave it alone.
