3 WAYS TO GO RETRO THIS SEASON

February 2, 2019

Just when you thought it couldn’t get colder, it did. And if you're all out of layering ideas after what seems like the longest winter ever, fear not: we've got a fresh batch of inspo in the form of some seriously nostalgic fits. This season's retro trends come courtesy of all your favorite decades, from the '70s to the '90s. Add in some on-point accessorising, layering hacks and a dash of glam, and you've got the answer to all your cold-weather prayers. Want to find out more? Here's three ways to try it now.

The new neutrals

Not sure where to start? How about with a double-breasted pinstripe blazer in a '70s-inspired brown like this one? Layer it over a vintage-vibe polo shirt for a top half that could have come right outta That '70s Show. Now, to avoid looking like you've actually time traveled from your dad's fave era, style it with a more modern pair of rigid cropped jeans and you've got yourself retro 2.0. Bonus points for matching your shoes to the accent color of your top.

Still clueless

Remember Clueless and Cher's forever on-point checked co-ords? Well, say hello to the 2019 remake. Mismatch a crop boucle jacket and a checked midi skirt for a print-clash that somehow works wonderfully. Then, throw a little bit of '70s into the mix with a sporty half-zip sweater underneath ('cause why not?). Don't forget the accessories: this beaded bag will carry all you need for the day and is the perfect contrast to box fresh white sneakers. Not so clueless anymore!

Three in One

And now for a look that combines three decades in one. Animal print might be one of the biggest trends of 2019, but it’s also a major throwback moment that was big in the '70s. Plus, if you don’t get serious Fran Fine from The Nanny or Janice from Friends vibe off this, you’ll want to refresh your memory of sitcom glam. Then, a mini dress with a turtleneck layered underneath brings a swingin' '60s twist. Beautiful.
