There is something really feminine and demure about retro fashion. It’s not surprising why some of the most chic fashion moments are from the retro era especially in the 50s & 60s which are my favorite fashion decades!
Scouring at local vintage stores is more fun than visiting boring malls, but I find a better overall shopping experience with online shops. The above dresses are from Stop Staring! where you can find a load of sweet vintage-inspired dresses. I find them SEXY especially the dresses in a slender, pencil silhouette.
If you don’t want to go full retro, you can easily add a little hint of vintage to your look with accessories such as gloves, kitten heels, cat eye sunglasses, cloche hats, brooches,.. etc. You can also mix & match different styles to create an interesting, unique outfit of your own. I usually pair a retro dress with an edgy spiked leather jacket or unexpected accessories like a sleek briefcase. There are endless ways to incorporate vintage/retro into your wardrobe.
I personally adore the 60’s mini skirt and the saddle shoes which I enjoy wearing even today. And remember, fashion goes in cycles!
