Stellar Fashion Trends
The world has not just passed through different time and ruling phases but also that of fashion trends. Every year or every time period has witnessed myriad kinds of fashion trends that have sustained, died and revived. Some exceptionally remarkable fashion trends of the yesteryears are listed below.
1. Polka Dots
This specific trend came to be commonly used in clothing and accessories from the late 19th century in the British land. The pattern comprises an array of shaded circles usually of the same size. The styling is rarely used in formal attire and is synonymous with playfulness and vibrancy. It initially began in a black and white context and later moved to more colorful hues. Besides clothing, the pattern is also widely used in toys, furniture, lingerie and more areas that the average imagination can reach.

2. Shift Dresses
A fashion trend popularized in the 60s has assumed several forms in the years thereafter and still seems to dominate the contemporary fashion scene in its own unique styling. Worn largely by Jackie Kennedy then, shift dresses with big buttons were a big rage. Bright monotone shades of orange, pink and green with matching accessories were used by many fashion conscious women then.

Introduced in 1964, this is yet another popular trend that still holds its ubiquitous presence in the modern world. Brought to the fashion world by Mary Quant, the miniskirt made the best attire for slender women and those with long and beautiful legs. Floral prints, bright monotone colors and polka dots dominated this piece of garment.

If you think of the signature geek in the yesteryears, satchels are probably the first accessory that will cross your mind. A flap top satchel usually in chestnut color with big buckles completed the bag. Eventually, the geek look went on to become fashionable then and now.

5. Brown Brogues
Brogues, especially those in brown color, were worn by many during the 50s. Fred Astaire and Cary Grant gave the shoes their soaring popularity. Fresh colored, brogues were worn with black and grey trousers to offer a striking contrast. Today, men are back to wearing brown brogues that dominate the High Street.

6. Jackets and Sweaters
The 80s fashion scene was completely unique and bizarre to many. Although only three decades old, it was quite a contrast to the 60s and the contemporary fashion scenario. Bomber jackets, pastel colored tees, cardigan sweaters, cavalry shirts, boxy jackets and figure hugging baseball coats defined the 80s style.

7. Evening Capes
The velvet evening cape creates the ultimate retro look. When combined with an oversized hood (detachable) that has a satin lining, the robe was a quintessential element for evening parties and cocktail dinners. The length of the cape was either ankle or knee length.
