Retro Fashion

Retro Fashion!

(Click on the images or links to shop!)

Retro Fashion has a big following. It is cool and unique, but time tested. You can buy vintage clothing but it's hard to find clothing whose fabric isn't worn or faded.

There are shops online who feature this style of clothing. Think pin-up, glam, or rockabilly, all of these styles are a part of the Retro Fashion trend. Quirky and wacky styles are also often featured in these shops as well since buyers are seeking something unique.

I have found a shop online that features Retro Fashion that I really love, ModCloth. They have all sorts of fun clothes, shoes, and accessories. They even have a feature that allows you to search clothing styles by decade! You can choose 20s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s! Choose a style from yesteryear, or recall fond memories from your childhood. Below are some examples of there decade inspired fashion pieces.

The roaring twenties, the decade of opulence and indulgence fostered a cultural awakening of sorts. Jazz, the flapper, and Art Deco all came about during this decade and their impact endures. This dress is a look back at the flapper style. At the time the sleeveless design was daring, and the fringe hem was designed for movement and perfect for dancing. This decadent black baroque jacquard shift dress boasts ornate embroidery, a sheer crocheted border, and a veil of swingy fringe. It still works well today because of its classic design.

Out with My Fringe Dress

Bold, bright, and beautiful - that’s how you feel in this coral dress! Side-swept ruching and tiered side ruffles take this simple, half-sleeved sheath and turn it into a beautiful number reminiscent of Grace Kelly in the 1950's.
Refined Radiance Dress

This neutral sleeveless dress, accented with sheer lace at the top and along its ruffled hem, features a drawstring waist for a look that’s both cute and comfortable. You'll look like you are ready to make a cameo on That 70's Show!

ModCloth also carries shoes and accessories! Travel anywhere in delightfully sophisticated style with these cognac-brown pumps. Boasting an Oxford-style silhouette and perforated trim in smooth vegan faux-leather, this spunky pair soars with retro charm!
