This spring it’s all retro with inspiration from the sixties, eighties and nineties.
Moving away from the wintry shades of grey that was popular in Autumn/Winter 2006, fashion for spring 2007 is all set to be rousing, retro and colourful. The striking black and white livens up the mood from the previous season over into a fresher looking spring with the revival of 1960’s fashion. The love for metallic is set to continue well into spring.
It’s important to remember variations of key transitional styles. We loved metallic and sequins, but spring’s look is futuristic. Much coveted sequins have been replaced with other forms of shimmery embellishment, particularly around the neckline.
This season sees fashions first retro raid into the 1990’s. Experimentation with vintage clothing and eighties retro dressing has exploded over the past few years evident with the opening of more vintage boutiques and the re-emergence of leggings. As they say, ‘old is gold’. In it’s truest sense revival of vintage clothing is the so called ‘in’ thing. Only now, “retro” fashion dressing is back going as far back as the sixties and nineties, as hints of bright neon colours and rave scene prints surface to grab fashion’s glare of publicity.
The neon look is skilfully being introduced into our fashion conscience having been applied to current must haves. Realising that leggings and footless tights are here to stay, the spring season sees the reputation of neon footless tights and leggings, a change from the safe black of last season.
