When the '70s episode of Disney+'s WandaVision first came to our television screens, I resonated heavily with the colourful ensembles and unique interiors. I must not have been the only one because the trends of 2021 seem to be giving the decade a second life on both the fashion and home décor scenes, and I'm not surprised.
In a time where we've all been stuck in our home for the most part in the past year, the world is ready to embrace youthful, energetic, and fun styles for the hopeful summer ahead. It was evident when designers released their S/S 21 collections in the autumn, and it's clear as day now when you take a scroll through your favourite retailers. Amid the pages of your everyday basics, you'll find a rainbow of colours and maximal prints that seem like they were delivered right out of a time capsule.
If you're ready to embrace the nostalgia and give the fashion of the '60s and '70s another go, we've relayed the best trends of the season below. Get ready to get out of your fashion slump and embrace your clothes again.
I've seen many Gen Zers post their crochet videos online, making everything from bags to hats for them and their pets. Something about crochet just seems so perfect for the summertime—don't you think?
Whether they're donned in an oversized or rectangular silhouette, tinted lenses—especially yellow ones—are the accessory fashion girls can't seem to get enough of right now.
It's almost impossible to see a collection today without a funky graphic print incorporated into the mix. Why keep it safe with stripes or polka dots when you can have psychedelic swirls and vintage florals?
As someone who wears a headscarf, I very much appreciate this trend for the scarves it's bringing onto the mainstream market. You've probably already seen that viral TikTok trend of everyone driving in their cars with silk scarves tied around their heads, and honestly, it's a vibe.
The halter neckline reached a peak of popularity in the '60s and '70s, and it seem like it's making its way around again in 2021. Whether it's on a dress, top, or a bikini—fashion girls everywhere are opting for the dramatic neckline over a more basic one.
