The phrase “vintage is the new black” has been thrown around quite a lot lately, and its no surprise when you look at the latest runway and ready-to-wear lines. Shellsuits a la 1985, faux mullet hairstyles from the 90s, and scrunchies have all made a comeback recently. We’re not sold on all of these vintage throwbacks, but there are three standouts that you should definitely incorporate into your winter wardrobe.
1. Flared Jeans
Celebrities from Jessica Simpson to Bella Hadid have been spotted sporting this trend courtesy of the 1970s. Flared jeans are back and just in the nick of time to balance out chunky winter sweaters and jackets. There are two major trends happening with flared jeans right now. The traditional “bell bottom” jeans that are fitted through the buttocks and thighs and flare out below the knee are the first. Today’s version of bell bottoms is perfect to pair up with a slick Moto jacket, a flowy boho top, or a knit sweater or turtleneck. Finish off the look with heeled booties or wedges. The other version of the flared jeans trend is more of a wide-leg style. These are supremely comfortable and look amazing with a more fitted top, a chambray shirt, or a cropped sweater. Because these jeans can be shaped more like trousers, they are also work appropriate. Depending on the length of wide-leg pants you can even get away with wearing flats.
Look out, Stevie Nicks, we’re coming for your favorite fabric. Velvet is big this season, and as cozy fabric goes it doesn’t get more luxe. Velvet has been a favorite of royalty and aristocracy for centuries. Kendall Jenner, Nicole Kidman, and Rita Ora have rocked this trend on the red carpet, and style icons like Victoria Beckham and Blake Lively have transitioned it into daytime looks. Even so, the idea of draping oneself in velvet may be a little much. To make the most of this trend, think of velvet more as an accent piece rather than an outfit. Throw on a velvet camisole under a warm cardigan. Punch up your footwear with velvet loafers. Try swapping out your standard wool blazer for a velvet one. As you open yourself up to velvet accessories and adornments you’ll discover ever more versatile and creative ways to wear the fabric.
3. Oversized Floral Prints
Bold, rich-colored floral prints are showing up on everything from handbags to coats to headscarves. Take a cue from the 1960s and work some floral patterns into your winter look. Floral patterned heels are a subtle way to work this trend into your outfits. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try a floral patterned coat – it will brighten up even the coldest drab winter days.
