  1. There is just something so alluring and so stunning about retro fashion from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s eras. The fashion from these eras was designed to compliment and accentuate a woman’s body while at the same time being comfortable to wear. Fashion designers in the modern age are always striving to come up with something that is flashier, trashier or even more outlandish than the rest. Setting your eyes on a modern day fashion show could leave you feeling both shocked and confused at the same time. 

    Back in the old days, people weren’t designing fashion in order to stand out or in order to impress the crowd. Fashion was not being designed in order to make the tabloid headlines, and neither were they designed in order to beat competitors. Fashion from the old days was designed for the people and designed to help them look good while being comfortable. There is something very soothing and nostalgic about going back to basics. 

    Retro fashion also reminds people of the ‘good old days’ and helps to reawaken golden memories from long ago. Many women can remember lovingly watching their mother’s getting dressed in the mornings before they head out on their way to work and to take the kids to school. Retro fashion reminds us of when we grew up and many little girls dream of growing up and dressing the way their mothers used to.

    Retro fashion provides a unique and refreshing take on clothing as opposed to some of the modern fashion styles in the world today. Vintage clothing is also more homely and appealing whereas modern fashion can often be too revealing, trashy and asking for attention. Many parents cringe as they watch their kids walk out the front door dressed in the latest fashion trends, and this is something that stems only from modern fashion styles.

    Dare to be unique and beautiful in a different way by adorning yourself in gorgeous retro fashion inspired by the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s eras. Women love to aspire to make heads turn with the way they dress, but we don’t always need to do so by wearing some of the extreme modern day fashion items. You are sure to make heads turn when you are wearing a beautiful 70’s inspired dress that hugs you in all the right places and brings vintage back in style. Old-school is certainly making a comeback as retro styles remain in hearts of many.

     

  2. There are plenty of different dress styles to choose from and it can be overwhelming especially if you don’t know what suits your body type.

    Here is a look at the different types of dresses for different body types.

    Maxi Dress

    Maxi dresses have the power to suit all body types. However, if you are on the petite side then it is best to go for a maxi dress that features a small print. Maxi dresses are perfect for women that have a long torso or a boyish figure as it can add curves to your body.

    Wrap Dresses

    If you have pear shaped body, then wrap dresses are ideal for you. A wrap dress will accentuate your small waist. Wrap dresses also work for women that want to accentuate the proportions of their body. They pull attention to curves, minimise the waist and draws attention to the bust.

    Mini Dress

    Mini dresses are a great choice for petite women. Petite women are able to accentuate their legs with a mini dress and make them look longer. Pairing a mini dress with a pair of nude heels will make your legs look even longer.

    Shirt Dress

    If you have an hourglass shape, then a shirt dress is a good choice for you. However, a shirt dress is not very forgiving so it should only be worn if you are completely satisfied with your body.

    Sheath Dress

    A sheath dress is a great option if you have an apple figure. A sheath dress does offer a little room if you want to hide a little tummy. If you want a sheath dress to work for your figure, then you will need to select a dress that is not too small. Most body types will be able to get away with the sheath style dress, as long as the fit is right.

    A-Line Dress

    An A-line dress is the perfect dress for pretty much anyone making it highly versatile. An A-line dress looks flattering on all body types and can be enjoyed by both apple and pear shapes. An A-line dress is a favourite style among women that have height.

    Peplum Dress

    If you have broad shoulders, then go for a peplum dress. A peplum dress has a slight flair at the hips, which will help you to balance out your figure.

    We all have different body shapes, but when you are choosing a dress it is important to wear one that you feel comfortable in.
