Spinning a Retro Wardrobe This Year

To all those who watched the Golden Globes 2016, one thing was unmistakable: the ubiquity of the retro glam. There were red lips and winged eyeliners and side-swept hair. And there was Lady Gaga, paying a lovely homage to Marilyn Monroe with her retro Hollywood hair and make-up.

Off red carpet as well, the retro trend has found a lot of takers this year. According to fashion designer Pablo Cabahug, 2016 is all about reinventing retro silhouettes such as off-shoulder necklines, bell sleeves, and flare pants.

Looks like the Seventies and Nineties are not leaving our wardrobes any time soon. There is a list of all things retro that were an instant hit with people last year (remember Kangana’s 2015 Marquee collection) and they are still very much in. But as much as the nostalgia, for the older ones amongst us, and the novelty, for the younger lot, it is very important to give it a fresh and unique spin.

So the tights and the skinnies have to be kept in the farthest corner of the wardrobe and the frills and the shifts have to be in the front racks. If you did not buy your culottes or pajama pants last year, don’t wait no more. Buy them. Let your bottoms scream comfort. Coming to shoes, trainers and keds are not to be ditched yet!

To personalize the retro style, the culottes can be kept tailored. If the shift dress does not flatter a body type, tunics can be considered. If one is not the trainers’ kinds, chunky heels can be bought; they go extremely well with flared pants. The idea is to create a look that is relaxed and retro, yet has a personal touch.

So have you seen the flared and the high-waist Forever 21 denims that the Myntra app offers? Or, for that matter jumpers from D Muse? Go ahead, explore and shop for your own 2016 retro outfit!
