6 trends of the 80s that will return to fashion in 2020
Fashion is cyclical. Almost everything that is at the peak of popularity today or is just trying to get into trends was probably once fashionable, and often not so long ago. Here are the fashion trends of past decades, according to experts, promise to regain their popularity already in the coming 2020.
Scattering of sequins
In 2020, one of the main trends will be sequins, so beloved by girls in the 80s of the last century. True, the designers say that now they will need to be decorated with sequins literally from head to toe, but neat little “shines” on blouses will not go into the trend and will be considered obsolete.
So we pull out our favorite dress from the dresser to the floor, get the threads with a needle, stock up on several packs of shiny sequins – and make our outfit super-fashionable and popular!
Another expected return is lurex threads in knitted and costume fabrics. Lurex is somewhat akin to sequins – it also makes the ordinary thing brilliant in the full sense of the word. But if you still don’t advise to wear a sequin blouse with sequins without further refinement in the upcoming 2020, then the “vintage” models of sweaters and dresses with Lurex threads can be worn safely, diluting them with modern details and decorations and creating a romantic and delicate look.
Fitted Jackets with Wide Shoulders
One of the main trends of the 80s is the wide “male” shoulders in jackets and coats.
At one time, the desired effect was achieved by sewing on shoulder pads for women’s models, designed for men’s suits, or even making shoulder pads manually from the hardest materials.
Today, fashion is not so ruthless to needlewomen: firstly, shoulder pads of all sizes are sold in almost any fabric store, and secondly, too wide shoulders should be avoided, since when combined with the fitted form of a jacket, you can easily get a grotesque effect characteristic of cartoon characters. It will look more ridiculous than fashionable.
Volumetric sleeves flashlights
Sleeves-lanterns were at the peak of popularity in the 80s, when every girl considered it her duty to have things of this format in the wardrobe for any occasion. In the future, this fashion came to naught, since such a voluminous shape of the sleeve is not too comfortable to wear under outerwear.
However, in the upcoming 2020 year, “flashlights” promise a new heyday and popularity. Indeed, such sleeves are able to give femininity to almost any image.
But still, you should not go too far with the volume, because naturalness is a constant trend that has not been losing ground for several decades.
Wedding sports suits of the 90s have become a kind of meme of the Internet and one of the most striking indicators that allows you to determine the wedding year at a glance at a couple’s snapshot.
And to the delight of sportswear lovers – the updated windbreakers in a pronounced sports style are again gaining popularity. Of course, these will be completely different models created from modern sports materials, warm, comfortable, comfortable and light at the same time. But still, the trend is returning, and surely that same father’s Adidas windbreaker with stripes will be appreciated by friends and colleagues with a bang already in 2020.
Today it is much easier to buy a knitted thing than to do it yourself. But in the 80s, knitting was in fashion with teenage girls and their parents and grandmothers, and knitting machines of different levels were regularly used by many families.
Unfortunately, today knitting is almost forgotten, and knitting needles and yarn are put on the far shelves. But besides the fact that physicians and scientists consider the knitting process itself useful for developing fine motor skills and keeping the brain active, as well as hand-knit things, fashion designers predict incredible success and popularity in 2020.
What is no reason to blow dust off the boxes and finally knit that turquoise sweater with sleeves-flashlights.
