Obviously, 2020 hasn’t been the best year in general, and consequently, it hasn’t been the best year for fashion either. A lot of this year’s fashion has relied on trends from previous decades. For instance, this year’s fashion has been scattered with ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s throwbacks, and has incorporated classic and hip styles all in one.
DISCLAIMER: Something does not have to be a trend in order for you to wear it if you like something then put it on!
01. Tie-dye and bleach overdye
It may not be the best trend out there, but here it is anyway. Let’s be real, when you saw it trending on TikTok you tried it yourself. What led TikTokers to DIY them was the ridiculous prices at urban outfitters for these tie-dye shirts. This is just one trend making a comeback this year. Tie-dye first rose to popularity in the 60s and then made its first comeback in the nineties. There are many ways to try out this trend. Minimal pastel tie-dye is less busy, easy on the eyes but still has visual interest, while bleach tie-dye looks great on blues. If you didn’t get obsessed with tie-dye during quarantine, were you even on TikTok?
This is one trend that the Kardashians have been big advocates for; OK Kim, ORANGE HAIR? Throughout the summer orange was paired with hot pink or nude tones. Coming into fall it has continued to be paired with nudes, but monochromes, as well as darker tones, have also been added into the mix. Orange is warm and energetic. The colour, in general, was a big trend in the ’70s and is definitely making a comeback. This trend will definitely carry on to 2021.
03. Retro Windbreakers
Windbreakers are definitely one of the biggest trends of 2020. They are essential in any closet! Not only are they stylish but they are also lightweight and perfect for fall weather. They protect you from light showers and chilling winds. You can pull them off fitted or oversized and there’s a variety of styles to choose from. They give off a sporty ’90s vibe. Thrifting windbreakers are the way to go! Whatever you find will always be unique. One of the best spots for windbreakers is VINTAGE on Queens Street, they have a large variety of cool retro windbreakers.
