Blast From The Past: 5 Great Finds For Your Wardrobe
From large floral prints of the sixties to disco flares of the seventies, the retro revival is a testament that vintage never goes out of style. These classic designs are a refreshing blast from the past amidst the current fashion climate, because who doesn’t look good in polka dots or a pair of cat-eye sunglasses? If you are tired of your current wardrobe and want to play around with bright colours and fun motifs, here are 5 items that prove that old is gold.
Stella McCartney Pitch Black 70’s Flare
Resurrect that seventies jive spirit with Stella McCartney’s Flare denim in Pitch Black. Pair it with a patterned lace top and heels for that retro feel or a cardigan and sneakers for a more updated look. Either way, flares are back to stay!
Boutique Moschino Short Dress
Yellow, polka dots and stripes may have been popular in the sixties but they’re making a comeback and Moschino’s short sleeved short dress has the perfect combination of all three elements for that bright summer style. Once you put this on, you are ready to hit the dance floor.
Versace Havana Cat Eye Sunglasses
Worn by icons like Bridget Bardot and most recently Salma Hayek, cat-eye sunglasses have been a popular accessory among many famous A-listers for decades. This pair from Versace will make you look like a celebrity instantly, and it adds a dash of sophistication.
Mark Cross Grace Mini-Box
Large floral motifs were mostly big when the Beatles were around, eventually crossing over to hippie culture. Since then, Mark Cross has transcended that fad and adapted it to their Grace Mini-box, which was inspired by Grace Kelly’s overnight case in one of her films. It is made from the finest Saffiano Leather with Red Lamb Skin lining and comes in a delightful array of metallic finishing. This is a great accessory for a themed party or if you are planning a girl’s night out.
Burberry Check Detail Leather Trainers
These Burberry trainers are reminiscent of those worn by students in prep schools since the 1920’s. With a modern touch and their popular House checks, Burberry has updated the design, whilst staying true to classic. The dual tone is a great match for any casual ensemble whether you’re in denim or a dress. If you value comfort and still want to look fashionable, look no further.
