As fashion trends drift in and out, one trend that can be dated back to the 1920s is here for good. Vintage! Around the 1960s this fashion trend exploded and could be found on women all over. Recently this craze has come back into popular demand thus bringing styles from the past into modern day attire. The interesting thing about vintage shops is that most of the supply and merchandise comes from donations. The vintage industry has no real way of supplying their stores besides from donations, and this separates it from traditional apparel stores.
Now let’s talk about the style! One unique style staple in the 1950s was the circle skirt. These skirts are very full but hang nicely at the waste without any additional stitching. This piece is a classic item, but there are many ways to modernize it by adding accessories such as leather. Another well known piece is the crop top. Crop tops can be dated back to almost the 1930s and they were often part of a two-piece set. Throughout almost all decades crop tops have made an appearance in some new way, shape, or form and they will continue to do so. Perhaps you prefer a more modest fashion piece? The white shirt dress is right up your alley. This look is very minimal yet simple and elegant. It is such a classic look that it is unlikely it will ever go out of style. The white shirt dress can be accessorized with a hand bag or possibly jewelry of your choice. This is the perfect outfit for a day on the town!
