These Retro Trends Are Taking Over Holiday Decor
You can always go classic with your holiday decor (hello, winter whites, greens, and reds!). But part of the season’s fun is seeing what new goodies and trends retailers come out with each year to help you refresh your holiday decor aesthetic.
In 2022, there are lots of decor styles to love, and they’re all over the map. From clean, Scandi-inspired woods and whites to cozy cabin plaids, you’ll find tons of beautiful holiday items on the market. If you’re looking for something extra special, though, you might want to consider some time travel: Two of the biggest and more surprising holiday decorating styles available this season — Victorian glamour and ’90s fun — both call back to holidays past.
Time traveling stop number one: the sultry, saturated glamour of the Victorian era. This holiday season, many retailers are looking to the rich brocades, luxe patterns, and supple textures of the late 19th century for a seasonal style that feels decadent and welcoming all at once. Pair these picks with real evergreens and your favorite retro record for a holiday season that envelopes you like a warm hug.
Back to the ’90s
Bust out your Mariah Carey Christmas album — we’re jetting from the mid-1800s straight to the 1990s for the second half of our seasonal showdown. If you’ve spent any time on social media this year, you probably already know that everyone’s favorite decade is back in a big way, from butterfly clips and Birkenstocks to belly-baring shirts. Well, the holiday season is getting in on the trend, too, with neon details, cheeky throwbacks, and lots (and lots) of sparkle.
