Revolutionizing Everyday Fashion: Retro Trends That Are In Style Now

We are currently experiencing a blast from the past as we revisit iconic trends from the most fashion forward decades. Major retro styles from various eras, such as the sophisticated 60's and the psychedelic 70's to the elaborate 80's, are flooding my fashion pins as I scroll through the latest outfit posts via Pinterest. Groovy prints and color blocked ensembles featuring bold neons are bringing the excitement back to our wardrobes this season and I couldn't wait to get in on the action.


Like most, I've felt uninspired with fashion as of late, less motivated to create new looks due partly to the lack of available options in stores and lack of variety. Now that things are finally getting back to normal, brands are taking cues from more exciting moments in fashion history as customers are thrilled to have reasons to dress up again.

As if looking through a time capsule, summer 2021 is bringing back retro styles from decades past to get us back in the groove and over our fashion slump. The best moments are upon us so get ready for a nostalgic embrace when it comes to this season's most coveted trends. Here are the vintage inspired looks I'm obsessed with this time of year.

Reminiscent of a 1960's vacation look, this sporty chic outfit is a major mood. With such vibrant color and sleek fit, I feel as though I've stepped into a time when women always looked their best. Paired with a thong sandal and vintage-inspired chain linked purse, these are the perfect additions to the flare ankle skinny trouser topped with a cut-out peplum top.

This season is all about taking risks and no longer playing it safe. What I love most about 70's fashion was the far out color combinations and use of print to convey a message of freedom and liberty of expression. Psychedelic prints are seeing a resurgence as the popular retro style is taking over as the season's must-have. I paired this vintage mini skirt with a contrasting yellow crop top and green blazer for a fun mix of color.

Nothing But Color

Tired of wearing dull colors, my goal is to implement brightly pigmented pieces from my head to my toes this summer. One of the emerging trends this season are colorful pants and I'm excited to experiment with a variety of denim washes and trousers designed with a range of hues. Paired with a vintage chain belt along with a printed halterneck bodysuit, this is a casually modern take on a 70's disco look.

Everybody wants a baecation, and we get it! What’s better than knocking boots in the beach cabanas in the Bahamas? Or, better yet, bent over, dangling off the balcony the way Big Red had Flash in Five Heartbeats. But, pleasurably so! It’s a one-of-one sensation – vacation sex. If we’re being honest, you probably don’t have to do all of that to have your senses heightened by vacation sex; as we’d imagine, so much of it is better because it has a lot to do with our mental state being so relaxed.
