In recent months, several 90s and 2000s trends are (again) making space in the fashion world, and this time we hear them coming to the sound of guitar riffs. In fact, July 2021 online searches show an exponential increase of interest in the key elements of pop-punk style, arrived to date as an underground subculture with an absolutely cool aura.
According to the insights by Stylight, a trend forecasting platform, research has grown by +48% for fishnet stockings and tops, +25% for knee-tight combat boots, +14% for studded belts and +17% for tartan and checked garments such as pants, skirts and dresses. Even on the catwalks of Chanel Resort 2021-22, Celine Fall-Winter 2021 and Saint Laurent we see the choice of a dark aesthetic, halfway between a dark fantasy and pop inspired coolness. It’s time for us to react, and fashion shows it: pop-punk style is back, with its boldness, excesses and the desire to rock everything with energy.
