Good style is eternal and no matter how many seasons may pass, fashion has a way of always bouncing back. And no, we’re not talking about going just a few years back, we’re talking decades! From the below-the-knee hemlines of the 20s to the 80s cropped tops, good trends come and go, but they never die. Here are 7 trends our mothers wore that are back again...she might just be your new stylist!
1. Block heels
The late 90s and early 2000 saw stilettos emerge as the one shoe every girl should have. They had their moment, but now it’s the block heels and chunky heels that have made a strapping comeback from the 70s. They are comfortable and they look great with almost all kinds of trousers. We sure hope they never go out of style.

2. Peasant tops
Peasant tops, usually white, come with sweet tiny embroidery around the neck and have big flowy sleeves. We’ve all seen Zeenat Aman rock this one in Hare Ram Hare Krishna and loved her for it. This boho-chic top is back and how! We’re seeing it everywhere - the runway front and our favourite brands. We simply love how they hang effortlessly on our shoulders, and the comfort factor they come with is a dream!

3. Wrap dresses
The first wrap dress was created in the 1930s and it had its big moments through the 60s and early 70s. They have a front closure with ties that fasten around the waist and fall on one side. This year, we are seeing a lot of our favourite celebrities donning the wrap dress, which means it’s back in fashion!

4. Wide legged pants
One might think wide legged pants are the newest silhouette today - they are not. While they are one of the hottest trousers one can own today, they have been around for decades. They look great when styled with a fitted blouse and wedges. The queen of vintage fashion, Brigitte Bardot, showed us how to rock this trend!

5. Big round sunglasses
A couple of years back, these sunglasses would be considered a fashion faux pas, but not today. Today, round sunglasses are the trendiest pair of shades you can own. From thin Lennon inspired metal rimmed sunglasses to the larger than life plastic one inspired by Iris Afbel, they can do no wrong! Take your style game a notch higher by donning a fabulous pair of round shades.

6. Bell bottoms
Flared pants are one of the hottest trends we have, now that the 70s have made a sweeping comeback. We are pretty sure you have seen pictures of your parents donning them like total rockstars. They are huge in women’s fashion today and we have seen everybody wearing them and looking fab. Go on, get your pair too. Amitabh Bachchan was known to rock this one during his younger years - he would definitely be proud!

7. Circle skirts
The very feminine midi-length circle skirt, which was so distinctive of the 60s, is our current favourite. Love the way they flow down gracefully from the waist and how they make you want to twirl around town. Pair them with cropped tops or a cute collared top to channel the pretty sixties look.
