I’m sure I’m not alone in the jubilent love affair I have with the fashions of late. It’s as if the floodgates have been opened to a sea of nostalgia inspired looks, from 20’s art deco to 60s Mod and everything in between.
The below photographs of girls sprawled about beautiful cars comes from Vogue Italy’s Forever Glamour. Yes. forever. I’ve only been alive long enough to have experienced one era of fashion that was tailored to make ladies look like ladies, this era being it. The 90’s: hip-hugger jeans, spaghetti strap tank tops, stringy hair hidden beneath beanies… not so much. Y2K’s: Now heres the “middle child” of all decades. A seriously confused and angsty clusterfuck of random fashions mishmashed together. I remember going to H&M in high school, where a pink and teal tulle 1950’s prom style dress was situated next a punk rock inspired fishnet shirt… If you can identify what might be the considered the fashion figurehead of this era, please let me know.
The point is: until now I haven’t seen days where a comprehensive style has taken over to embrace femininity and encourage lady-likeness. So I say ‘welcome back’ peplum shirts and tailored jackets, red lips and pastel painted nails, so nice of you to return.
