How Vintage Are You?

 

 

You might not have noticed but it is a fact that fashion trends are cyclical in nature. What you call it as the newest fashion trends had come and gone multiple times in the past.

Let us discuss a few of the vintage fashion trends which simply don’t seem to die out soon.

1.Printed Silk Scarves

Printed silk scarves is one of the classic examples of fashion trends repeating itself. If you don’t know printed silk scarves dates back to the 70s. They were very common back then and the trend seems to have come back again. Don’t get me wrong girls tying them around their necks or wearing it as scarves look absolutely stunning.

2. Slip Dresses

Basically they first caught people’s attention in the 90s, it had become the wardrobe staple at this point but they are minimalist in design and many people love them for this very reason. There are many other design variations of this dress.

3.Corsets

Little Women has got us thinking of many things – the least of which is the corset. It looks gorgeous on young women and now they are not worn under your dress but rather over T-shirts or worn alone.

4.Loafers

Loafers have carried on into 2020 from 2019 (or the ’50s, if you want to be exact). A popular styling trick in the ’50s? Styling the preppy shoes with bright white socks. Actually, that’s a modern favorite, too.

5.Granny Glasses

As you might have guessed it from the name: it is a vintage fashion trend. It features oversize, squarish frames with warm tints of the 70s. It is one of the most viral trends on the planet. Many young fashionistas are simply loving it. There are many other different types of glasses on the planet.

There are many women who are just running after the latest fashion trends while they don’t know that they are a thing of the past. It is also a marketing technique and it works like a charm. While these fashion trends come and go we should be careful of our pockets.

“What I really love about them… is the fact that they contain someone’s personal history…I find myself wondering about their lives. I can never look at a garment… without thinking about the woman who owned it. How old was she? Did she work? Was she married? Was she happy?… I look at these exquisite shoes, and I imagine the woman who owned them rising out of them or kissing someone…I look at a little hat like this, I lift up the veil, and I try to imagine the face beneath it… When you buy a piece of vintage clothing you’re not just buying the fabric and thread – you’re buying a piece of someone’s past.”
― Isabel Wolff, A Vintage Affair

“When we can’t understand the science behind something in this world, we make up mythological entities that we can relate to. We personify the forces of nature that mystify us, using our boundless imaginations to comfort us and make us feel like we have some control over these things that are much bigger than we are.”
― Chelsie Shakespeare, The Pull

“It will always be difficult for an old soul to satisfy the expectations of the new culture; because as an old soul you will always prefer to fall in love with everything that has a soul too, you will understand and feel the pain of others, you will be generous, giving nonstop no matter what, you won’t ever follow the crowd but you’ll choose to follow your own path instead, you will value a deep conversation and a loving halo, you always be thankful for the simplest pleasures in life.
And I am a vintage soul my love; that’s trapped in a young body. An old soul that struggles to fit in this plastic world …”
― Samiha Totanji

“Moments later as we crossed the road to the 50’s diner, I recited the restaurant rules in my head one more time.

Rule one: Keep your hands clean.
Rule two: Careful with the food trays.
Rule three: Visit the soda fountain as often as you like, but don’t make yourself sick.
Rule four: Enjoy the poodle skirt.”
― Kate Willis, Enjoy the Poodle Skirt
