Summer 2021 brings back the retro style with these 8 trends


When the 70s episode of Disney + WandaVision first came to our TV screens, I resonated strongly with the colorful ensembles and unique interiors. I was not to be the only one because the trends of 2021 seem to give a second life to the decade both on the fashion and decoration scenes, and I am not surprised. At a time when we’ve all been stuck in our homes most of the time over the past year or so, the world is ready to embrace young, energetic and fun styles for the hopeful summer ahead. This was evident when the designers released their S / S 21 collections in the fall, and it’s clear as day now when you browse your favorite retailers. In the middle of the pages of your everyday basics, you’ll find a rainbow of maximum colors and prints that seem straight out of a time capsule.

If you’re ready to embrace the nostalgia and give ’60s and’ 70s fashion another chance, we’ve relayed the season’s top trends below. Get ready to step out of your fashion slump and get back on your clothes.
