5 trendy things from the USSR that are back in fashion: these facts will surprise many. Photo
The era before the collapse of the USSR was remembered by fashionistas for simple and versatile fashion solutions, which, oddly enough, are back in trend today. Some of these things have been considered outdated and ridiculed for decades, but 2023 changed everything.
Interestingly, these wardrobe items are considered fashionable far beyond Ukraine. OBOZREVATEL will tell you what 5 things our grandmothers wear that you can safely combine in your look (to see the photos, scroll to the bottom of the page).
Headscarf or kerchief
A headscarf, which is often seen on older women, is actually a very stylish accessory that elegant ladies adore in the hot season. The way you tie it on your head can change the whole look of your outfit. In combination with glasses, a scarf or headscarf with a trendy print will add mystery and sophistication to a woman. In addition, it will protect your head from the sun and your hair from the wind.
The trend for quilted jackets burst into fashion this winter, but it has no intention of disappearing. Down jackets and coats are still in style, but quilted straight-cut models are a fresh take on the past.
In the USSR, it was difficult to buy an interesting and bright thing, but it was quite possible to make it yourself. That's how fashionistas saved themselves by knitting everything from blouses and scarves to dresses. In 2023, these things got a new lease of life.
Handbags and clutches are beautiful, but not always versatile. Pouches have gained popularity along with shopper bags. Photos with mesh accessories have flooded aesthetic websites, and their capacity is something to be envied.
Comfortable wide-leg trousers were at their peak of popularity more than thirty years ago, but later gave way to tight models. The situation changed radically a few seasons ago, when fashionistas cautiously began to add wide leg trousers to their wardrobes. So the turn came to culottes.
