As we enter into the new decade and welcome some refreshing and unique designs let’s take a moment to acknowledge the popular fashion trends from the 2010s.
Every decade brings with itself a signature style that eventually sets the tone for similar trends for the next 8-10 years, and 2010 was no different. From Athleisure to the hippie couture of the burning man, it has changed the way we glorified and critiqued fashion sense all these years.
The gender norms have changed, pink is now an extensive shade of masculinity, people no longer define fashion, it’s the other way round now. So how can we miss on acknowledging such a dynamic decade.
Presenting the top five fashion trends of the 2010s
- The Unisex Turtlenecks Amongst other things, the 2010s would be remembered for introducing the old designs in a new way. Turtlenecks, for example, finds its roots far back in the 1940s but came to prominence only after beings revamped in the 2010s. Preferred by both men and women, turtlenecks were all the rage in the last decade.
- High-Waist Pants You can call it the crazy obsession of what’s been popular in the past, but boy did we enjoy the reintroduction of the old classics. In the 2010s, it was simple, the higher the better. Denims and pants that go all the way to the ribcage were quite popular amongst millennials and celebrities.
- Boho Chic Ever since its first appearance in the Coachella 2012, this woodstock-inspired trend found a great deal of fanfare. Fringed sweats, floral crowns, and the ole style Stevie Nicks gowns were some of the popular designs that dominated the retail stores across the globe. The love for boho chic only seems to be increasing amongst people and it would be no surprise it stays one of the most popular trends even in the years to come.
- Two-Piece Is there anything more fashionable than wearing two pieces of clothing similar to each other, we don’t think so. The two-piece dresses come in all colors and designs each better than the other, and believe us, they all look highly fashionable and snazzy. Maybe the reason why you’ll find celebs like Taylor Swift and JeLo wearing it so often at events and even at performances.
- The Faux Fur The early 2010s saw a revolutionizing and positive change with all major brands such as Balenciaga, Prada, D&G, Gucci, and Macy’s going fur-free. To stop animal cruelty the leading department stores and brands came up with an alternative called faux fur. Against all odds and people’s expectations, it became a breakthrough sensation with popularity going off the charts in no time.
With plenty of other unconventional trends such as sneakers with dresses, trendy backpacks, slip dresses, etc, 2010s was arguably one of the most inclusive decades in a long time. It had something for everyone.
