So, what’s so special about 2020?

We’re obsessed with ALL throwbacks. Not just one.

‘90s vibes? Yes please. ‘70s silhouettes? Yes sir. 1920s flapper-esque slip dresses? Gimmie them all.

See what we mean?

So – with this super chic set of trends in mind, today we’re looking at the vintage-inspired fashion picks that are catching our attention online right now.

Obviously, we’re delving into the world of Shop It To Me. Which means incredible prices and unseen discounts. So, keep your eyes on the price reductions too!

‘90s Nylon Shoulder Bags

We couldn’t write this post without including the iconic ‘90s-style shoulder bags that everyone is loving right now.

The best thing about this trend? NYLON. Not leather. Which means animal-friendly and super affordable.

Topshop always keeps it current and this season, there is plenty of Nylon to go around. This knotted is super cute.

If it’s a treat you fancy, Prada is the powerhouse that keeps making this look come back.

We also love this adorable nylon bucket bag.

Mock Croc Bags

‘90s bags aren’t your only vintage-inspired handbag trend for 2020. We’re also loving the mock croc super-structured mini bags that are taking over.

Think ‘40s vibes and you’re on the right track.

Nanushka is totally nailing this on-trend look. Shapes are sharp and tailored and the vegan leather alternative croc is a must.

Plus, lots of them are approx. half price on sale with Shop It To Me right now!

Loeffler Randall, Cult Gaia, and Staud have also come up with the goods.

‘80s Shoulders

This is a look many people were dubious about when it first came back to the runway. Now, it’s everywhere and it’s the uber-feminine and all-powerful look that you never knew you needed.

The bigger, the better when it comes to shoulders in 2020. And we’re not just talking about statement shoulder pads. No. This look is all about the ‘80s puff shoulder and some seriously extra volume.

This smocked top from Endless Rose shows you how you can do this statement look but incorporate it seamlessly into your wardrobe.

It might not be ‘80s prom taffeta but it works.

Pop Socks and Heels

Such ‘30s and ‘40s vibes instantly.

This trend has a serious vintage look. It’s sheer pop socks and we’re wearing them with strappy heels. And we’re obsessed.

This look is super feminine, edgy, and done well, can look super high-end. Stick to black mesh or lace to get the look feeling luxe and pair yours with strappy heels that don’t take away from the sock.

Try the look with this inexpensive duo from International Concepts at under $15.

Or – if you want to get real extra, opt for Gucci.


One of our favorite comebacks this year is the corset.

Whether you opt for knit, mesh, or simple jersey, the corset trend is all about structure and finishes. Exposed bones are chic and tie-up details give any corset top a girly look.

Style them simply with jeans or layer them with t-shirts or mesh rollnecks for a runway-ready outfit.

Keep it super simple with Fleur du Mal (now less than half price on sale!) or LPA from Revolve.

Or opt for edgy denim vibes with GRLFRND.

Good American have even incorporated the trend into your day-to-day casualwear. The perfect on-trend combination for joggers.

‘70s Tailored Vests

An unexpected return to the runway this year is the super chic tailored vest of the ‘70s.

This look can be worn formally with a button-up shirt or pussy-bow blouse or more casually with high waist wide-leg jeans and a simple graphic tee.

It’s all about stripes for this trend. Opt for classic navy pinstripes…

or choose some ‘70s-inspired color with Tularosa. A v. affordable way to try out this look.

Rag & Bone add their typical edge by doing this trend in leather.

Mid Heel Mules

Oozing ‘grandma’ vibes with a very clear vintage aesthetic comes the mid-heel mule.

Granting us effortless coolness with all-day comfort, this is one trend that promises to come back around time and time again.

How to do the look? Style with wide-leg cropped jeans or tailored trousers or pair with a mini skirt and blazer matching combo for serious cool-girl blogger vibes.

Gucci is a classic choice that will never go out of style.

But if your budget doesn’t stretch to Gucci, these Rebecca Minkoff and super-cute crossover Stuart Weitzmans more than do the trick.

Loose-Fit Jeans

A huge look from the ‘80s, ‘90s and even the early 2000s, relaxed jeans have been stealing skinny jean’s thunder for quite some time. But for 2020, they’re the only jeans you need to buy.

The look is high-waisted, slouchy, loose-fit, and full-length. Easy to style, you’ll be wearing these with heels and flats so pay attention to your hemline and if you’re struggling, entrust a tailor to create your perfect length.

Maison Margiela creates the perfect cut with this acid wash pair.

For a slightly more cropped version, look to Levi’s.

A great cut with a different waistband, Urban Outfitters adds detail with an integrated belt.


Is there anything more ‘70s than tie-dye?

It’s a bold look but it’s back. And tie-dye is a major print for 2020, perfect for summer. Do it casually with a tee or activewear look or opt for a tie-dye summer dress paired with simple sneakers or combat boots.

‘60s and ‘90s Sunglasses

‘Extra’ and ‘statement’ are the words of the day when it comes to sunnies for 2020.

The sunglasses looks for the ‘60s and the ‘90s couldn’t be more different. If you’re into the ‘60s vibes, opt for oversized and round, and the bigger and more statement the frames, the better.

When it comes to the ‘90s, keep it chic, slimline, and all black. If you feel too Matrix-y with your ‘90s shades on, you’ve nailed the look.
