70s Bohemian Chic

80s Glam

The 1980s were a decade of over-the-top trends. To rock this look, search for oversized blazers with shoulder pads, metallic fabrics, sequined dresses, and bold, neon-colored clothing. These trends are definitely back! Don’t forget to accessorize with chunky jewelry and statement belts.

90s Grunge

Alternative rock and grunge defined the 1990s. Find flannel shirts, ripped jeans, combat boots, band t-shirts, and slip dresses. Keep in mind that layering is key to achieving the grunge aesthetic. T-shirts were often worn under summer dresses, and flannel shirts can be worn over pretty much anything.
