The 2010 years were not that different from the past decades when it comes to fashion and beauty. The old is always new again, and what's really good finally returns to the mainstream.
This is good and terrible news for people who never want to get rid of anything in their closets; On the one hand, you probably want to use it again and, on the other hand. Eventually you will stop having space in your closet for all things.
That said, there are some things from this decade that we recommend to hold on to. The 2010s marked the beginning of an era of big eyebrows, comfort as king and so many Birkenstocks, and that is just to name a few.
As the decade ends in the same way as the last one, wearing the fashion of the 90s, of course, we take a look at some of the best gifts of style and beauty of the 2010s that will certainly follow us all in 2020 and beyond.
This trend of the 90s returned to a large extent in the 2010s, both on the red carpet and in our Instagram feeds. Chokers add a cool factor to any outfit, just like this one did at Taylor Swift during her platinum blonde moment in 2016.
Turtle neck for women and men.
Another trend with roots that date a lot, long before the 2010s, returned in a big way in this decade. Both men and women looked elegant with turtlenecks in real life and on the screen (ahem, Shiv Roy).
Bless these eyebrows. The 2010s marked the beginning of the bold and beautiful eyebrows we are used to seeing today. Cara Delevingne is often celebrated by her epic partner, but letting everything grow has been a welcome change for people who spent the 90s in excess.
Let's be honest: Birkenstocks never really left, they just shot high fashion this decade thanks to the collaborations of designers and their constant appearance on the feet of fashion people. Gone are the days when they just roamed the foothills of their summer camp. If they are good enough for Frances McDormand at the Oscars, they are good enough for us.
Ombré and Balayage
The highlight became more natural in the 2010s. Balayage made our hair less scratched and more mixed thanks to his painting technique, and allowed us to let our roots grow for months at a time, without guilt. Elegant and economical: a mutual benefit.
High waist pants
That the fashion forecast is pronounced, we stand firm when saying that when it comes to pants, the higher, the better. In the 2010s we received the gift of "mom's jeans", a style of Levis literally called "ribcage" and no shortage of support from high waist enthusiasts.
I love them or hate them, the Kardashians have really done well when it comes to wearing their comfortable gym clothes at all times. In this decade, it became socially acceptable to use things that look like you're going to be exercising at some point, and we're here for it.
Two piece sets
Is there an easier way to dress than putting on two clothes that combine with each other? Not really. Two-piece sets come in many shapes and sizes, but they all look polished and modern. That is probably why they are a staple for celebrities like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift.
Colorful costumes have had a lasting moment in this decade. As fashion becomes gloriously less gender, red carpets and clothing stores are flush with custom suits. Not all of them are as great as the one seen here in Amandla Stenberg, but they are still quite great.
While mixing impressions is an art, fortunately it is an art that can be left to one's imagination. There They are ways to mess up this trend, but it's all about experimentation when it comes to texture and design that we saw intensified in the 2010s.
Elle Fanning's Met Gala nail charms are not the most functional, but they speak of the growing popularity of nail art in the decade. The sparks, ombré, designs, nail rings, the growing trend of specialized nail salons and the constant inspo of nails in our social networks are a clear sign that nail art is here to stay.
The pins, the forks, even the butterfly clips were huge this decade, and they seem to be even more popular as we get closer to 2020. Headbands are also having their day in the sun, thanks to designers like Lele Sadoughi and Jennifer Behr, who design expensive headbands seen in many influencers.
Collaborations of department store designers
One way fashion became more accessible this decade was through collaborations of designers. People could remember Target's first collaboration, a line with Isaac Mizrahi that Racked cites as the birthplace of "ubiquitous collaboration from high to low level." Since then, a lot of other designers have joined the trend, from Balmain for H&M to Vera Wang for Kohl & # 39; s.
Helen Mirren debuted with pastel pink hair at Cannes in 2019, but fans might be surprised to learn that it wasn't even her first foray. Seen here in 2013, Mirren joins a long list of celebrities who dyed their hair all the tones of the rainbow this decade.
Luxury brands and department stores pledged to go skinless in the 2010s, including Prada, Michael Kors, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s and Gucci (to name a few). As a result, many false alternatives have appeared on the market, although their environmental impact is still questionable.
Jameela Jamil reached the trend of dressing in pajamas and the trend of wide pants at the same time in this look, popularized this year and in the last decade. Both prioritize comfort while looking cute.
Anything that allows us to carry as much as possible while looking elegant and taking a rest behind our backs is a welcome change. In this decade, backpacks have become more beautiful, spacious and more acceptable to use as a fashion statement.
Dresses with slippers
There was no shortage of very high platforms in the 2010s (especially not in Lady Gaga), but there was also the tendency to combine elegant suits with sneakers. Not only do they dress poorly, as in the case of Millie Bobby Brown at the 2018 SAG Awards, but they are much more comfortable. We are starting to feel a pattern here.
When the 90s returned, they brought dresses without laces outside the house. Lace-up dresses became famous in the 2010s, not only as something to wear under a dress, but also as their own outfit. And the sexy look is versatile: with a belt, corset, capes or otherwise.
More options for more people.
It could be said that our favorite "trend" of the 2010s is not a trend at all, but something we have all needed for a long, long time. It's hard to believe, since the options are not yet great, that there are many more brands that make clothing larger than a size 12 and a darker base than a white shade. The diversity in the tracks and in the media has a long way to go, but we are definitely leaving the decade better than we started. Thanks in part to brands like Savage x Fenty, in the photo above.
