Fashion is constantly transpiring worldwide, and trends from the past are repeating themselves. Styles from the 70s and 90s are advertised by celebrities as well as students here at Foran. As fall weather is quickly approaching, it is time to say goodbye to sandals, and hello to comfy sweaters.
The “Pure Hippie Sandal,” from the 70s, has made an immense comeback. Nicknamed, “The Jesus Sandal,” Birkenstocks are flourishing as popular and fashionable shoes. Birkenstocks are easy to slip on and they match almost anything and everything.
Eva Knudsen says, “I love my Birkenstocks because they go with any outfit and are so comfortable. I can’t imagine my life without them.” Trendy, comfortable, and easily accessible, Birkenstocks are the go-to shoe of the 2015 summer and fall season.
Polo shirts and Sperry’s are classic and timeless. At Foran, it is easy to spot a few people rocking the Polo/Sperry look. Typically accompanying khakis, or jeans, Polo shirts are an easy go to outfit. The Polo/Sperry combination is great for any occasion and season. In the summer guys tend to sport the short sleeve Polo, and in winter, the buttoned up/ long sleeve Polo. Sperry’s are also acceptable for any type of weather, whether it be snow or sunshine. Due to the popularity of the brand name, as well as the year-round convenience of Polo shirts and Sperry’s, this trend is one that just does not seem to ever fade.
We’ve all been a victim of hitting snooze on our alarms too many times and rushing around in a fury to get out the door to be at school for that 7:20 A.M. bell. When getting out of bed takes you 45 minutes, and getting dressed takes about 5, the “I woke up late look,” is the look to go to. Tee-shirts, yoga pants, sweatpants and sweatshirts are comfortable and worn by many students year round. The “I woke up late,” is another trend that does not ever go out of style. This look’s comfort and un-time-consuming appeal is crucial for situations where one wakes up late, rainy days, and days when you are suffering from exhaustion.
Converse is an American shoe company that has been in existence since 1908. Another classic shoe popular back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, it is now back in style. Girls all over Foran are rocking the low-top converse as well as the high-top converse. This is another timeless shoe that can be matched with anything, and which also comes in a variety of colors.
Another groovy trend that has repeated itself is the flowy, patterned pants. They were a huge trend in the 60s and 70s. Whether they were worn to the disco or a peaceful protest, these styles of pants bring us back in time to the ages of “Flower-Power.” Parker Callahan says, “I love patterned pants because they are so comfortable and go with plain shirts. They add fun and color to my wardrobe, plus they are super stretchy.”
Just as it is taught that history repeats itself, fashion is repetitive as well. Trends at Foran this fall are some that were trendy years ago.
