From Madonna-Themed Ensembles to Plaid Everything

 - Mar 9, 2012
70s, 80s, and 90s revival photo shoots are popping up everywhere. Paying heed to the age old fashion theory that everything once in style will come back into style again, afro-chic models and ridiculously large scrunchies are making their way onto both catwalks and magazine covers.

The revival movement has coincided with the rise of vintage apparel, or rather clothing hailing from a previous decade. Aside from the evident beauty emanating from the 70s, 80s, and 90s-themed editorials are their sustainable implications. The display of time-honored outfits encourages fashion savvy circles to incorporate previously discarded pieces into their daily ensembles. As this is an excellent way to make low-budget fashion statements, these 70s, 80s, and 90s shoots are also encouraging economical decision-making and are thus promoting a win win situation for penny-pinchers and environmentalists alike.
