Transcript for Taking a look at retro trends making a comeback
Back now with retro decade. Styles from the '70s to the 2000s are making -- it's so weird to say 2000s. I know. Retro. They're all making a comeback right now. And 2020 fashion is all about rocking those retro looks. Here to tell us what trends are back and in and how we can pull them off, lifestyle fashion expert Melissa Garcia. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me, good morning. First off, straight from the '70s, bell bottoms, they're back. They're totally back. It's been a while since bell bottoms have sort of made a comeback and it's all about 2020 and the bell bottoms and I love them here, so here these are from lulu's. Not too expensive and we paired it with a striped sweater, which, again, is a nod to the '70s. They get a high waisted pair and lengthen and elongate your frame. Slimming, fun and just a good Jean. And the bell makes your thighs look smaller, I think. Right? It's all an illusion. You did add though this is not for the guys, though. Dan. I would steer clear, Dan. Well, Dan has been waiting to dust off his old collection. I like that I don't have to buy any new clothes. So the next decade is the '80s. And it says here that acid washed guess jeans are back, right? Am I misreading that? Yes. You can whip those out too if you have those. Shoulder pads are in. Yes, I love a good shoulder pad and love the '80s and the '80s fashion. Prince in the iconic shoulder pad and saw a lot of statement sleeves this season so now it's the statement sleeve and added shoulder pad so here we have this great one on Jen by happy by nature and just paired it with a slim Jean to balance out. There is a big top. We want to keep it balanced. You don't want to look overwhelmed by the clothes and just pulls together beautifully. It's a fun trend. Daepts wear all the trends at the same time. Try to use the phrase -- what is it again, statement sleeve in a sentence. Did you like that? A statement sleeve. Let's talk about the '90s. The '90s are back. In a big way. Chunky boots. Chunky boots. I think about the '90s, the grunge era, nirvana, stone temple pilots. We see Halle berry rocking a great chunky boot also here in the '90s, and I love it here, so here we paired it with a cargo pant which is also iconic '90s and these are great, doc they never go out -- so comfortable. And they also give you added height if you're vertically challenged like I am. So that's always a plus. Really comfortable and I love the white. It's really fresh for 020. I have them in the heels because I want extra height. You and me both. Moving to the 2000s now, right? Sheer printed tights. We saw a lot of opaque tights and now it's all about the sheer so these have a really fun tone on tone pattern from commando. These are great. I love them. And it just is really a great way to update -- instead of opaque you can do a nice sheer. All right. Melissa, thank you so much. And to the models and everything, nicely done. Where are we on acid wash No. You're on your own island on that one. We don't have to worry about Dan. No chance his wife will let him do it. They let this guy host the show. What is going on? The doc martens are good on that one. And we will right back in
