What’s hot this summer was hot in the past. Fashion trends never die, they cocoon for a few decades and reemerge as today’s style. This is Laver’s Law.
Some of us weren’t around in the seventies, so tie-dye and bell bottoms might be out of your wheelhouse. But we’ve got some tips to keep you trendy this summer.
Here are the Summer 2019 trends that’ll blast you back to the past. Hippy on!
To Die for Tie-Dye
This stuff’s groovy. It’s psychedelic. And it’s in.
It might raise some eyebrows from the older generation, but it’s from fond nostalgia. Everyone at Woodstock was clad in tie-dye. Now, it’s back and hipp(y)er than ever.
Try a slip dress that’s gilded in these psychedelic colors. It’s light, breezy, and piece that people will remember.
Make a statement by dipping your favorite jeans into a dye wash. Keep your feet lookin’ cool with a tie-dye print.
Rock on this summer!
Animal print. It’s as old as history itself. Cave dude and cave lady donned pelts from yester-era, so can you.
They say fashion hits New Jersey (or was it New York?) years before the rest of the country. They had it first. Now, leopard prints and other furry beasts are making their way into mainstream fashion.
Big name designers, like Gucci and Tom Ford, are embracing a more animalistic fashion. Try on a leopard shirt-dress or tigress skirt if you’re feeling powerful!
No, the Hustle and roller skates aren’t coming back. Sorry, Saturday Night Fever fans.
But today’s trends are borrowing from that groovy disco.
Bell bottom trousers, with the long stripes, are back. And they’re hotter than ever.
Blouses that can be tied into crop-tops. Bra tops (sorry, Elaine Benes) are back.
Heck, if you’ve got that hair for it, sport a ‘fro. They’re pretty cool.
Denim’s 2019 Trends
You might have seen these in the ’90s. It’s not the first time denim-everything is coming back into style.
Want a statement piece for your closet? Get yourself a denim dress. They’re old-school, but they’re comfy and stunning.
If you’d like something more casual, try a denim jacket over a simple blouse. And the best part: they’ve got pockets.
Even though you’re not filming a cliche, rom-com painting scene, get some overalls. Denim overalls are back. Wear them over a casual white shirt or crop-top.
Don’t forget your denim jeans.
Fancy Footwear of Yesteryear
Stomp on with these new-old trends. Footwear from decades ago have walked back into style.
For those fierce ladies out there: gladiator sandals. Strap them up before going into battle or on a fun date.
Knee high boots, with or without a heel, will make any outfit funky.
Those of you not from the Netherlands have a fresh opportunity to wear clogs. They’re loud when you walk, so be prepared for all eyes on you.
Not feeling old-school? Match your outfit with a pair of Balenciaga Speed sneakers for something fresh ‘n’ funky.
The ’70s are back. They’re back and they’ve brought with them their wardrobe. Those youngsters out there get to experience hippy attire for the first time.
Dip your clothes into tie-dye for a hip look. Not feeling colorful? Try animal print.
Everything disco and denim are back. Get new, designer stuff or dig around in mom’s closet. Those bell bottoms are still in there.
Kick out old trends with yesteryear’s footwear. Gladiator sandals and clogs are 2019 trends for the summer.
