Vintage clothing is an awesome and authentic way to rock trends from the past decades that still look great today. When it comes to past looks, denim often plays a huge role. Some of the hottest denim trends of today have been seen before, so finding the perfect vintage piece means you can easily recreate these rock star looks with the best quality in old school denim.

The 70’s, 80’s and 90’s decades generated fashion icons to last a life time. Not only do their styles transcend to today, but in particular, their statement denim looks are seen again and again on current fashion week runways.

This week, we thought we’d take a look back at some of the biggest stars from the previous decades, their style and how Pepper Tree Vintage Clothing can help you create these iconic looks.

70’s Fashion

When we think of 70’s fashion and music, Debbie Harry a.k.a Blondie instantly comes to mind. Her style embodies the 70’s New York punk scene and if she wasn’t spotted in a mini dress and over-the-knee boots, she was certainly always rocking a double denim look with a cute tee layered beneath.

Take a look at our ultimate straight leg, boyfriend jeans and pair them with a traditional, vintage denim jacket and a graphic logo tee for the perfect casual look.

80’s Fashion

You can’t talk about the 80’s without mentioning Madonna. The signer was known just as much for her fashion sense, as she was for her music and her day-to-day style was fun, flirty and super 80’s girly. Styling her legendary fish net tights and ankle boots, Madonna would often be caught in pretty, mini dresses, paired with juxtaposing rugged denim jackets, usually sleeveless and oversized, but always cropped.

 

Pepper Tree has a huge selection of vintage mini dresses in prints for everyone. Layer one with an 80’s-inspired denim vest and don’t forget an on-trend backpack as your casual accessory for the season.

90’s Fashion

Reminisce on 90’s style icons and Kate Moss will never be too far away. One of the biggest supermodels of all time, Kate was the face of Calvin Klein in the 90’s and famed just as much for her love of super skinny jeans, which is still the case even today. Often pairing her skinnies with girly ballet pumps, Kate’s look was smart-casual, styling it with an immaculately fitted blazer and finished with a chic scarf to accessorise.

If you opt for faded wash, Levi 501 skinny jeans, style them just like Kate and go for a chicer-than-chic vintage Escada blazer, complete with double breasted-buttons and wide lapels. Finish the look with an iconic check Burberry scarf from our collection.
