Your young mother's style guide - back in our closets

Mother's Day is a time for reflecting on all the positive, wonderful things your mom may (or may not) have given you. Your life, to begin with. But if you're lucky, she also gave you her fashion sense. We hate to break it to your millennial self, but all the most current trends today are courtesy of...your mom! Just when whe thought we had seen it all in terms of 80s and 90s redux items, the throwback decade is coming for you. And your closet.


That's why for this Mother's Day, we’ve style-stalked our mom’s old pictures and created an ABC guide to trends they started! Why look at influencers when you can look back on pictures of your young mother?

A is for acid washed jacket

This summer, we suggest you invest in a piece of denim history with a vintage jacket from Levi’s, Wrangler or Lee. The world’s most iconic denim silhouette first launched in 1870s but nowadays we’ve got a whole range of denim jackets in all manner of worn-in washes and styles.

is for Bandana

From your 90’s mom’s favorite accessory to the hottest trend of 2017. The classic bandana or “handkerchief” as it is also called is back in every fashionistas wardrobe invading the Coachella desert 2016 and New York Fashion week 2017. This all-around piece can be worn as headband, as a neck scarf or around your wrist - as you like! A perfect touch-up to a sleek outfit!

C is for corset belt

You either hate it or love it, the corset over t-shirt combo. Kim Kardashian West and Kylie Jenner have been a major factor as to why it’s gotten popular again. No surprise there, as the Kardashians have made a habit of turning their underwear into outerwear. Their (shared) stylist, Monica Rose, finds inspiration via Tumblr, older editorials from the 90s and she even diggs through all of her old magazines from 10 years ago.

is for Denim Skirt

Summer and bare legs are ahead, which means it’s finally time to take out the skirts from the very deep backs of our closets - or maybe a jeans skirt from your mom’s 90s closet? Season after season denim has been essential in most of our wardrobes, but for the first time in a while the skirt has found its way back into fashion. This button-front one is brought straight from the 70’s and trendier than ever!

E is for Espadrilles

If you also want to know how it feels to put yourself in your moms shoes the must-haves are espadrilles. Coming originally from Spain these shoes are in fact way older than your mom as they were first handmade pair were documented in 1322 and already 1911 there were several factories producing them. Muchas gracias for giving both us and our moms the most comfortable summer shoes for sunny days!  

is for Fanny pack

From being highly connected to dorky tourist in the 90s to making it to the runaway of both Alexander Wang and Karl Lagerfeld. The Fanny pack is surprisingly back in trend again and has fallen into the must-have category of bags. 

G is for Gold Earings

Big hoop earrings were arguably the most standout accessories of the 90s. Like most styles in the 90s, the earring style was oversized and outspoken. But in reality, gold earrings are classic accessories that have never actually gone out of style and are just as relevant today as they were in the disco era.

is for High Waisted pants

Do you remember the time were we all fighted to wear the very low waisted jeans which made it tricky not to show off our underwear or to bend over when dropping something on the floor… Thank god that time has passed! Now the higher the pants are the better, and more stylish than ever - just like our mom surely also thought back in the 80’s and 90’s.

I is for Idol Shirt

Whether she was a fan of Madonna, Mickey Mouse or Dirty Dancing we are sure that she had a printed t-shirt with her biggest idol.

is for jumpsuit

Tired of wearing a dress again? The jumpsuit is here to stay and is a perfect alternative to dresses and shorts. Originally used by parachuters and skydivers it moved from the world of sports into our closets.

 

K is for Kitten Heels

Either a heel higher than 10cm or flat shoes? Drop it! In today’s fashion there is no rule about how high a pair of heels should be anymore. Let’s do as our beloved mommies did when they were young and take the heel escalator down a few levels. Get ready to clack around in KITTEN HEALS!

is for leopard coat

In these times when the world is questioning how it is to be a strong woman, the leopard print has been a common trend to show up by designers such as Prada and Givenchy. And honestly, are there any other coats that could create a higher level of “don’t mess with me” impression than this one? Don’t think so. Apart from your power mommy, the coat has also been seen on both Michelle Obama and Anna Wintour lately. These are all power women with capital P!

M is for mom jeans

The mom jean, the distinctive high-waisted and relaxed fit, has long been associated with the 80s. But thanks to forward-thinking labels (yes, we’re talking Levi’s) reimagining vintage denim, the trend has returned gaining a whole new look in recent years. 

is for Nylon bomber

The forever-sporty bomber jacket has created itself a solid spot in 2017’s closet. As from the beginning a military staple mainly produced by the military supplier Alpha Industry the countless number of designers such as Alexander Wang and Burberry have each and every one of them created their own iconic bomber with a personal touch. 

O is for One-piece swimsuit

Forget the two pieces bikini and go for the sporty one piece swimsuit this year! Now you will be both ready for a beach party or if you rather prefer swimming a few lengths in the swimming pool.

is for Perm

You look back at photos of your mom and all you see is a big fluffy hair. 2017 it’s time for the curls to shine again which results in a untamed mane that the straightener can no longer manage. And don’t be shy with the volume - the more the better. So, make mommy proud and put the straightener on the shelves for a while!

Q is for quarter-sleeve t-shirt

The return of the baseball shirt, did you see it comin’? The very sporty trend never seems to get old

is for Ruffle blouse

The ruffle is on the rise! Whether it’s ruffle sleeves, ruffle shoulders or ruffle button closure the blouse takes the prize this season of creating an intense “must-have-feeling”. Cute and feminine it has its ability to make up a whole outfit.

S is for Shoulder Padded Blazer

Thanks to “showing-off”-labels such as Balmain the meter (almost) wide shoulders are back whether if this creates warm nostalgia or horrible memories in the mind of our moms - we’re still about to wear them. So dig into your mom’s closet and find your trend piece of the season!

is for Tie dye

This old and creative dying technique originally from Egypt has, believe it or not, rebirthed from the hippie times of Janis Joplin and was first seen again among last year’s runaways.

U is for Undone Brows

This year it’s easy to save time on your beauty habits. Instead of investing your time in forming and shaping your brows you could better just let them be. Keep them full and natural just like in the 80’s brow queens Madonna and Brooke Shield as well as today’s power brows worn by Cara DeLevinge. The bushier the better.

is for Volume Skirt

If you’re not feeling like the very tight mini denim skirt you have options, don’t worry. As the volume skirt is also entering from our moms cheerful times

is for white sneakers

The mandatory white sneakers, who doesn’t have a pair? And I bet your mom always told you to keep them clean. You rock them best with a pair of nice socks. Partly thanks to the relaunch of Adidas Superstars we now see white sneakers everywhere - from IT-girls wearing them to produced by the world’s biggest designers. Maybe it’s time

is for XL Trench Coat

Okay, so the term ‘x-line’ is just another way for us to say ‘shoulder pads and peplum’... But we’ve seen a real trend towards this look. And we’re loving it! During the 80s, power-dressing was used by the increasing number of working women to give them a strong look in an environment dominated by men. Dramatic shoulder pads were used in suits, dresses and blazers!

G is for yellow-lens sunglasses

Let’s go back to the real-life Instagram filtered world your mom used to live in and start wearing these super trendy tinted sunglasses! For yellow tinted sunnies there are no rules of when to wear them, as for normal sunglasses (except from a fashion point of view) - you will be able to wear them inside and out. Spotted on the Hadid sisters as well as on Johnny Depp in the 90’s movie Gonzo. Who wore them best?

is for zipper jacket

Sandy was hopelessly devoted to the zipper jacket in Grease (1978), but nowadays the black leather jacket is still hot.
