WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED COTTON SUNDRESSES? Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today:

  • 40’s cotton sundresses: Classic A-line sundresses, often with button-up detailing are a timeless staple of 1940s women’s fashion. Breezy midi sundresses in floral prints, and vibrant solids (especially navy blue sundresses) were all the rage during this era.
  • 50’s cotton sundresses: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when swing dresses, fit-and-flare sundresses, and sleeveless midi sundresses first made their debut! (Think Marilyn in her timeless, white halter-top dress). Tie-neck collars became a fashion must-have, and don’t forget the prints! Polka-dot sundresses, plaid sundresses, and deep emerald green sundresses have been stealing hearts ever since.
  • 60’s cotton sundresses: In the 1960’s, all manners of sleeveless mini dresses became mainstream! The babydoll sundress, smock sundresses with Peter Pan collars, off the shoulder sundresses, belted shift sundresses, shirred sundresses, smocked sundresses, and FINALLY dresses with pockets! Bold floral print sundresses, leopard print sundresses, and colorblock sundresses are still fashion hallmarks of this iconic era. 
  • 70’s cotton sundresses: Flowy maxi dresses and kaftan dresses with bold geometric prints can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Pinafore dresses made a comeback in the 70’s, boho sundresses first hit the scene, and the groovy seventies also saw the emergence of bold floral sundresses. 
  • 80’s cotton sundresses: Cute mini sundresses reached new heights in the 1980’s, and metallic print sundresses reflected the spirit of the eighties. Sundresses with puff sleeves, neon sundresses, and T-shirt sundress with playful graphics were all the rage, and Madonna made us fall in love with black mesh sundresses as well as sundresses with ruffles upon ruffles.
  • 90’s cotton sundresses: Plaid mini skirts, and plaid sundresses came back in a major way during the 1990s fashion era. Floral sundresses and sheer sundresses hit the streets, and nothing beat a floral slip dress layered under a flannel button-up top. Cute and casual sundresses, bodycon dresses, and color block sundresses also show up in timeless 90’s era dresses.

Whatever era in fashion you seek to inspire, we're here to support you with cute cotton sundresses in every size!
