Historically, all fashion trends make a comeback at some point and right now the Age of Aquarius is having a moment again, but with a modern twist. Whether it is a resurgence in flea and thrift shopping, or the desire for items that are made to last and manufactured in the United States, both vintage and new items that harken back to the 1970s are back en vogue.
Deep burgundy, orange, and brown are big players in fashion. Natural leathers and suedes are seen in long trench coats and accessories. Bold patterns of amorphous shapes and zig zags are stitched into purses or woven into sweaters. Macramé makes a guest appearance in a shrunken sweater-vest, and you can’t turn around without bumping into a pair of platform heels.
Homes are decorated with a mix of antique furniture from the 1970s and new items that reflect that time period. Textiles showcase bold geometric patterns in oranges, greens, and browns, and mixing and matching these patterns is encouraged. Dishware can be seen in warm colors with similar patterns.
Iconography from the decade carries over into holiday décor. Peace signs, daisies, and birds take their place on both jewelry and Christmas ornaments. Goldtone finishes make a comeback in stamped ornaments and Best Friend heart necklaces.
