TikTok has seen a whole new – old – trend emerge in recent weeks. From the 1980s brought back to 2022: the Flashdance gaiters are making a comeback. Decryption.



Fashion is an eternal renewal.

We are inspired by the past and we twist to the present.

If with the crop top and the low-waisted pants, we realized that the 2000s inspired more and more designers and big brands, now the gaiters would come to reimpose their style for the winter.

This accessory, which many of us had discovered with fascination in the film

Flashdance

in 1983, and of which we had no news since Madonna wore it in her clip

Hung Up

in 2005, returns seventeen years later through the window of social networks.

In video, the tiktokeuse @maoui2saintdenis succumbs to the trend of gaiters

In a rather grunge style, the tiktokeuse @annasghost has published a clip in which we see her associating her outfit with a pair of black spats. The video has been viewed more than 2 million times and garnered some 3,000 rave reviews... On the European side, the trend is also rising. The French tiktoker @maoui2saintdenis, star of the second hand, also shared with her community her weakness for the accessory of classical dancers. For the young woman, it will be worn under a long knit dress or over a pair of moccasins.

On Instagram, the trend also and particularly conquered K-Pop stars.

The singer Lisa, of the very famous group Blackpink, has completely integrated them into her wardrobe.

Just like Sumni, a solo singer, who chose them white and covered with hair, for the time of a shoot.

Adopted by celebrities

If the trend is gaining momentum on social networks, celebrities have also let the gaiters into their wardrobe.

Singer Billie Eilish adopted them in her everyday looks, on her big black buffaloes as on the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards in September 2021, under a black dress.


The model Hailey Bieber preferred them very high in purple leather to match her monochrome outfit.

Kaia Gerber has also adopted the cult accessory of the 80s for her sports lessons.

As for the Spanish influencer, Angela Rozas Saiz, she chose to pack them in her suitcase during Paris Fashion Week in October 2021.

80s star

For the record, the gaiter became known to the general public thanks to the musical

Fame

, in the 1980s. In the film, young dancers in training adorn themselves with this accessory, often brightly colored and in knitted mesh, for their training sessions. .

Then it was thanks to Véronique and Davina, icons of the show

Gym Tonic

decked out in flashy bodysuits and neon tights, that gaiters became cooler than ever.

And finally, yes, the movie

Flashdance.
