Retro Styling Tips
Everyone knows that fashion is cyclical. What was old is new again and classic looks are timeless. Remember neon and leg warmers? Yep, they’re back—along with lace and old-timey prints. Whether you’re a fan of time travel or not, you can add some vintage elements and jump on the retro trend this season.
We like these easy-to-replicate vintage looks by decade:
1.Sprinkle in some 20’s flapper fashion with a pair of strappy heels, cloche or fur stole or collar.
2.Pepper in a dash of dynamic 30’s-style art deco elements with a retro handbag, earrings and other glamorous accessories.
3.Pair ruby red lips with a figure-flattering mermaid skirt or a high, body-hugging waistline in your optimistic and vogue post-war 40’s silhouette.
4.Capture the cheer and charm of the 50’s with a sweetheart neckline, pearl necklace and some tortoise-shell print sunglasses or clutch.
