Trends of the past are making a comeback this summer. From 70s boho, to 90s grunge anyone can travel back in time with the style of their choosing.

The 70s were a time of tie dye, belled sleeves, bell-bottom jeans, and peace signs. With music-festival season just around the corner, you can find 70s-inspired clothes in every store. Some “far out” fashions making their debut this season include oversized sunglasses, jumpsuits, flowy tops and dresses, platform shoes, and bell bottom pants. Pair a flowy 70s-inspired top with jeans and sandals for a casual outfit with a boho feel.

People say the 80s were a decade of great music and funky fashion. These styles are making their way back, and they are better than ever. We were “Saved by the Bell” and now all stores are full of these righteous trends. Some of these 80s fashions include crop tops, windbreakers, bucket hats, high-waisted pants, Chuck Taylor high-tops, and metallic colors. High-waisted pants and crop tops are fashion essentials that can be worn with almost anything. A bucket hat can be the perfect contribution to any outfit all while preventing sunburn as the weather heats up.

Many of the “90s kids” are still channeling the fashions from the turn of the century. The fly styles of the 90s are still “all that and a bag of chips.” Some of these bomb styles include flannels, joggers, jean jackets, mini skirts, halter tops, overalls, Doc Martens, and babydoll dresses. A mini skirt and halter top can make for a trendy outfit, that’s perfect for the warmer weather of spring and summer.

It’s time for you to find your inner 70s disco, 80s pop, or 90s rock as the trends of eras past make their return.
