Hi everyone! Iâ€™m sure weâ€™ve all been seeing this whole hype about how the 70â€™s are back! The pallazos, jump suits, umbrella skirts and front knotted topsâ€¦ yea.. They pretty much do look like they came right out of some 70â€™s movie!
Just the other day, I was sitting with my mum watching a Rishi Kapoor â€“ Neetu Singh movie, when she saidâ€¦ I used to dress like that in college!
It suddenly gave me an idea and I went rummaging through her closet. Funnily I realized that almost everythingâ€¦ even stuff thatâ€™s ages old, actually does look like the stuff hanging around in stores these days. (My mom does keep her stuff very well-preserved â€“ something I shouldâ€™ve learnt from herâ€¦ sigh.. Anyway..)
If fact, that I think is the most interesting thing about fashion trends this yearâ€¦ the fact that there are NO trends! According to me, itâ€™s not just the 70â€™sâ€¦ itâ€™s also the 80â€™s and the 90â€™s alike! Bring out that old outfit from 5yrs ago and that too will be totally in vogue! Thatâ€™s what I love most about this yearâ€¦ thatâ€™s the kind of fashion I prescribe toâ€¦ where thereâ€™s no doâ€™s and donâ€™tsâ€¦ thereâ€™s no limitation or prescriptionâ€¦ where you can pick anything out of your closet, even if itâ€™s decades oldâ€¦ and it still looks absolutely fashionable! Itâ€™s like fashion finally is celebrating the spirit of Evergreen!
So hereâ€™s a dress I pulled out from my momâ€™s closet with her age old sunglassesâ€¦! Teamed them up with some of my newest buys off the stores and viola! It looks classy, trendy and just like I remember her from my childhoodâ€¦ quite a blast from the past!Â
