Fashion trends of the past almost always come back. Designers draw their inspiration from the previous decades and interpret the trends in a new way. The fashion of today combines some of the most distinctive features of other eras and this diversity gives everyone a chance to find something they like.

We at Bright Side have reviewed the main fashion trends of today that came from the past.


In the 1920s, a lot of women would cut their long hair. The most popular hairstyle was when hair reached the earlobe. This popular haircut could be with fringe or without it, smooth or with curls. Just like 100 years ago, all kinds of bobs are popular again.

Pilgrim collar

One of the main trends of 2021 is the big romantic collar called a pilgrim collar. This accessory was used at the beginning of the 20th century and in the 1980s. Now, you don’t just have to wear this collar with dresses, you can combine it with your favorite sweater and jeans.

Feminine dresses with floral and berry prints

The 1950s and 1960s-style dresses are now popular among celebrities that have a big influence on the fashion world. The distinctive features of these dresses are the feminine silhouette, bright colors, and romantic floral prints. For example, model and designer Harley Viera-Newton really likes cherry prints.

Bright monochromatic suits

The fashion of the 1970s had a lot of different colors. The monochromatic suit was a must-have for any fashionable man or woman and people really loved wearing them with turtlenecks. In 2021, these suits are now popular again. Green is probably the most loved color.

Big bob

Fashion experts are saying that the legendary hair of Diana Spencer is coming back. Celebrities like Hailey Baldwin and Kaia Gerber have already tested the modern versions of the famous hairstyle of the British Princess.


In the 1980s, thanks to Madonna, corsets became popular as full-fledged pieces of clothing, not just underwear. After that, they disappeared for a bit and then made a comeback in the 2000s. They were worn with everyday clothes — like pants and skirts. In 2021, this tendency is coming back. You can wear a romantic corset together with jeans.

Jelly lips

In recent years, trendy women have preferred matte lipsticks. But some people are already tired of these textures, so in 2021, glossy lips and jelly lips are coming back. At the same time, matte lips are not an anti-trend, they are just another option.

Baggy pants

In the 2000s, hip-hop culture was really popular, so young people started wearing loose pants with short tops and T-shirts. The street fashion of 2021 reminds us of that time. Baggy pants are popular again.
