Vintage Fashion Trends That Are Here to Stay
Women who have spent more years in the fashion world may have noticed that some of the traditional and vintage styles have made a triumphant return. For the younger generations they may seem like new styles and trends but they have been remade and brought back by popular demand. Maxi dresses and jumpsuits are just two of the fashion trends that have been brought back from the history of fashion. Each of these trends can be categorized as casual wear and can be worn in a number of different ways. We can help you take these vintage styles and turn them into your own personal style.
Right now, you may be thinking that maxi dresses can only be worn during the spring and summer but the truth about the maxi dress is that it is very versatile. Not only does the maxi dress come in a number of different styles, colors, patterns and fabrics it can be worn all year round. One of the most popular ways to wear the maxi dress is to layer it with a cute cropped sweater, cardigan, leather jacket or even an aviator jacket. There are no rules or limits on what you can layer your maxi dress with during the cooler months of the year. Being creative is the essence of the maxi dress and whether you are tall or short; you can take advantage of this long dress.
Next on the vintage fashion trend list is the jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are back with a vengeance. There are dozens of different one-piece suits such as strapless with full length pants, strapless with shorts, cinched waist lines, halter style tops, etc. There really is no limit to how many different styles the jumpsuit can accommodate and what this means for you is that casual wear can become your everyday wear! The jumpsuit is incredibly comfortable and can be worn to a number of different events and activities; it is not just for a day at the beach or lounging around.
One of the biggest misconceptions regarding both of these vintage fashion trends is that they are made for tall women only. If you are a shorter woman and dying to try out these casual clothing pieces, don’t let your height restrict what you can wear. Heels can help pull both of these looks together if you are worried either of these pieces is going to make you look even shorter than you already are. Great wedges and/or stilettos are a great place to start to enhance your height and the overall style as well.
Casual wear for 2011 is going to be a flashback for some women. The trends from the ’70s were far more comfortable than we have been dressing and with our new obsession with casual clothing, the fashion gurus of the world such as Elan International have helped bring back successful trends of the past and update them to match our current lifestyles and fashion needs.
