NI Life & Style Party like it’s 1999/89
I’m not going to use the “B” word, as unless you’ve been living under a rock on planet Mars, you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you’re still not sure, I’ll give you a clue: It rhymes with exit.
The fact is we have no idea what is going to happen in the future. but one thing we can always rely on is the past. The good old days (whether they were or they weren’t, that’s how we like to remember them) bring us solace and comfort in an uncomfortable world. Two decades which keep cropping up are the 80s and 90s. rarely a fashion season goes by without either or both being referenced in some shape or form.
This season they dominated the majority of the catwalks. And just like the eras themselves – there was nothing subtle about it. Wham! – big shoulders, puff skirts and slouchy boots – the 1980s. Mad fer it – bucket hats, bum bags and cycle shorts – the 1990s.
As someone who was born in the former and grew up in the latter I, for one, am delighted and tend to embrace these trends as much as possible.
While we are waiting round for Theresa and Co to make their minds up, we May as well party like it’s 1999 (or 1989) and enjoy the good times while we still can.
