In the 70’s we grooved to ABBA in exclusive nightclubs, draped in furs and golds. In the 80’s we rocked electric blue hues and sharply tailored suits, screaming in flaming hot red. In the 90’s we took over house parties in vintage leather jackets and denim overalls. And in the 00’s we partied the night away in more nightclubs, wearing silk slip dresses.
It’s common knowledge that some of today’s best fashion comes from these bygone eras, when our wardrobes were bright, bold and boisterous. Much like these eras were influenced by global affairs, so is this upcoming era; considered the new roaring 20’s.
Sustainable luxury designs and a cocktail of colors
As the world’s slowly opening up bit by bit and we start preparing for a life post-pandemic, we enter a new fascinating decade, filled with experimentation and expectation. Especially after years of athleisure wear in black, white, beige and grey, as well as wear and tear garments, we can expect to see people opting for sustainable luxury designs and looking sharp in a cocktail of colors.
Now, more than ever, what we wear is a tool of self-expression, as experts claim wearing red lipstick will act as a symbol of returning to life, and rocking ethically made shoes, accessories and clothes, in fun, sparkly, and bold and bright colors, patterns and silhouettes, become a silent declaration for change.
Ethical heels and red lips
Somehow, when covid struck, quarantine did kill fashion. Or at the very least, parts of it. Biker shorts are no longer a religion. Color-coordinated tracksuits are slowly being replaced with tailored suits. And more people are choosing local, small and transparent fashion businesses over big fashion retailers.
It’s safe to say the ‘10s has had its time. With its biker shorts and sweatsuits. At first, it was all fun and games. A welcomed addition to suit our always-on, hectic lifestyles. Now, over a year stuck at home in loungewear later, the honeymoon phase is over. People wear clothes that aren’t melange. People are making an effort. People are looking to bright pinks and animal prints again. Fashion staples that are ethically made. We are, indeed, entering a new roaring ‘20s.
