3 Trends That Have Stood The Test of Time

“There is nothing new except what has been forgotten” – Rose Bertin
Shirley Bassey sang about history repeating, and that certainly rings true for the fashion world. Whilst fashion trends come and go, more often than not we find ourselves throwing away ‘last season’s’ fashion, only to see that same trend resurface, leaving many of us kicking ourselves for not hanging onto what was, and is again, in style.
Whether it’s the revolutionary miniskirt if the 60’s, or the ripped denim jean from the 80’s, we think it’s worth celebrating some of the key pieces that have stood the test of time.
The once daring hemline, which in the 1960’s represented somewhat of a political movement, regularly makes its way back into the fashion scene. Originally pioneered by British designer Mary Quant, the mini skirt is here to stay, with styles such as button-front minis and those that fall mid-thigh.

Ankle Grazer Trouser
The ankle grazer trouser emerged onto the fashion scene in the late 50’s and has continued to evolve including most recently being seen by those in the know at NYFW. Sitting around the waistline and falling just above the ankle, they remain a wardrobe staple due to their ability to flatter almost any body shape. Both versatile and stylish, they are easily dress up or down for any occasion – making them a key piece to hang on to.

Making its way into the world of fashion in the later half of the 20th century, the leather jacket has become somewhat of an iconic status. Being one of the most popular styles of the modern era, we are seeing this fashionable piece evolve every season, with fashion fans everywhere embracing the leather jacket as part of their ‘signature style’. This must-have piece is well worth the investment and will continue to get better with age, making it the perfect pre-loved purchase!
