It's pretty fair to say that fashion always comes full circle. I hear more customers come into Pretty Little Things and say "Oh, I shoud've kept my bell bottoms from high school!" Because those jeans, that are now considered "mom jeans" are exactly what is in trend right now. Some may wonder why trends seem to come full circle but really, is there a beginning or end to fashion?
Bell Bottom jeans
Flare jeans were super popular during the 60's and 70's. This trend came into play when high waisted jeans made there way back into the fashion world and the skinny high waisted top was balanced out from the big bottom flare. Speaking of high waisted jeans, the "mom" jean also made a come back as a cute way to style crop tops.
Scrunchies became popular in the 80's and various colors, styles and prints have been designed on them ever since. While they went away for a little while, as of recent years the hair contraption has gained popularity once again. Its stretchy fabric makes for casual wear and because of the different material that it can be made from, it's perfect to also add a little flare to any kind of occasion outfit.
Flashback to the 70's when platform shoes came into play. Disco's, Spice Girls, it's your call on what made these accessories popular but, these funky pieces could sometimes be higher than you could comfortably walk in, yet somehow always fashionable. The platform can be worn on sandals, sneakers, boots, you name it. However, while this trend came back I don't think it is as dramatic and tall as it used to be.
In the 70's bodysuits used to be worn more for athletic activities but now they can be worn for almost anything. Whether it be going out or being comfortable paired with some joggers, some find this one piece suit to be the most comfortable thing. It's easy to tuck in your shirt with a bodysuit. Only difference with these now, is you probably wont see anyone wearing a bodysuit at the gym.
Tie dye was an obvious trend of the 70's and recently it's made a comeback. The vibrant colors and various patterns are so on trend this spring and featured on the most popular clothing item, a comfy oversized sweatshirt and joggers.

Having that one go-to neutral pair of shoes is so essential. Knowing that you have shoes that you can slip on with any outfit is in my opinion, is a stress reliever, especially on those hectic mornings. Plus, it’s one less thing to worry about when picking out an outfit. (& yes! I do believe leopard is a neutral. Pair it with black jeans and a white top and you're dressed to the nines)

This is something not commonly seen on wardrobe essentials list. I decided to put this on because honestly, who doesn't love to be comfy.
