6 Styles Today That Are Legit #Throwbacks From Your Mom's Era

Hello! You are reading a shoppable magazine. :)

As they say, fashion is cyclical.


There are, undeniably, iconic styles which are specific to each generation - such as the flapper look that dominated the 20s, and the mod look which is highly representative of the 60s. But beyond that, you'll notice that certain items of styles of clothing experience a comeback of sorts every decade or so.

In fact, the culottes, slip dresses, and off-shoulder tops which are popular today are the very same items of clothing that women wore in the past - but updated and revamped, of course! In this article, we show you 6 looks from your mom's era, juxtaposed against 6 items of clothing from local label Purpur - and hey, you've got to appreciate a brand which can put their own spin and twist on old classics to produce a completely new interpretation.

#1: This Updated Crochet Skirt

We love the feminine, slightly bohemian vibe that’s associated with crochet - but instead of a full-on crochet dress, go for an understated crochet skirt and pair it with a basic top.

#2: These Paperbag Culottes

Your mom might have owned several pairs of culottes when she was your age, but we bet she doesn’t have one of these versions which feature a shortened hem and paperbag waist.

#3: This Drop-Shoulder Romper

Floral rompers are a little too retro and "mom" for our liking - but we love this super sexy drop-shoulder alternative which will help you channel some serious Grecian goddess vibes.

#4: This Layer Slip Dress

Slip dresses used to be worn as undergarments - but by producing them in a more versatile cotton knit fabric, as well as layering them over a basic white tee, Purpur shows that you can rock this look on any occasion.

#5: This Modern Knit Cardi

S H O P :
Knit is a classic that will never go out of style, but steer clear from the cable knits from your mom’s era, and go for a more modern open knit.

#6: This Revamped Offshoulder

S H O P :
The sweetheart neckline on an offshoulder is very classy, but might come across as a little dated. For an easier to wear, more casual look, opt for an off-shoulder that cuts straight across, like this one from Purpur!
