How Eclectic Style Clothing Enhances Your Personal Power

Fashion is about to undergo a major change. Retro styles, chunky jewelry, and baggy, textured silhouettes are all in style. It’s time for eclectic fashion.

In 2023, the runway was dominated by quiet luxury, with timeless trench coats and tailored trousers, as well as crisp, simple tees. In 2024, however, the fashion industry is moving away from minimalism and embracing retro streetwear. The number of searches for “eclectic fashion style” on Pinterest has increased by +130% over the last few months.

The new style of celebrities such as Harry Styles and Tyler The Creator is eclectic clothing, including the “eclectic grandfather” trend. This includes kitschy knitwear and vintage items, like baseball caps, loafers and retro-styled clothes. You can replicate the look by using custom-made or thrifted items, but part of what makes this trend so appealing is the individuality. Gen-Z is also looking for clothing that will last and look fashionable when they reach the age of their grandparents.

Leila Shams CEO of TA3 says, “I think people have grown tired of the same old trends. They are boring and quiet. “The new trends I see are ’70s/’90s inspired. “I love the bold prints, bright colors and big hair that are currently in fashion. I especially like neon, rainbow and leopard.”

You can style this trend in a variety of ways.

The eclectic style trend is based on baggy silhouettes. You can pay homage to the styles of the 1970s by pairing baggy skirts and oversized tops. Knitted textures and leopard prints, as well as chunky accessories, really help to bring these styles together.

Leopard print has returned to fashion and seems to be here for good. If you are not ready to go all out with animal prints, layer a leopard-print shirt over a neutral jacket and pants. Add a pair red gloves, chunky, slouchy booties, and bold textures to your look if you want to take it a step further.
