WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED PLUS SIZE TOPS AND SHIRTS? That depends on what era you wish to channel!

  • 40’s Plus Size Tops and Shirts: Nautical-inspired, striped plus-size button-up shirts with long blouson sleeves are timeless staples of 1940s women’s tops. Pintuck detailing, flutter sleeves, and embroidered collars were becoming all the rage during this era. 
  • 50’s Plus Size Tops and Shirts: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and the plus size halter top has been stealing hearts ever since. This is the fashion era when Peter Pan collars and fitted plus-size button-up blouses first made their debut! In the 50s, darling cutouts, plus size plaid shirts, bateau necklines, sweetheart silhouettes, and pussybow neck ties all challenged the status quo in women’s plus size fashion.
  • 60’s Plus Size Tops and Shirts: In the 1960’s, plus-size cottagecore smocked tops became mainstream, and plus size sleeveless button-up tops, and plus size short sleeve cardigans were all the rage! Plus size tie-waist tops in bold geometric prints hit the runaway, and plus size tie-neck tops won many a heart. 
  • 70’s Plus Size Tops and Shirts: Sassy plus size surplice tops, striped knit tops, woven button-up blouses, and swishy plus size  tunics can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Gingham print shirts, plus size baseball tees with elbow-length sleeves, plus size long sleeve tees, and bold floral prints joined the revolution in casual plus size tops and knits. Sleeveless tops and short sleeve sweaters became a mainstay for shirts in the 70’s, and button-up tops were often adorned with flare sleeves, pintuck detailing, and beautiful embroidery. 
  • 80’s Plus Size Tops and Shirts:  Vibrant plus size polo shirts, henley tops, peplum tops, and collared button-ups went to the next level in the 1980’s, and plus size knit tops with dolman sleeves were all the rage. Plus size graphic t-shirts became ultra-cool, and puff sleeves became a wardrobe staple! Bold neon prints and short sleeve button-up tops were everywhere and Peter Pan collars made a major comeback. 
  • 90’s Plus Size Tops and Shirts:  It was all about the crop top during the 1990s fashion era, so plus size crop tops and cropped tank tops made a major comeback. Graphic tees, and over-the-shoulder tops became a mainstay in casual nineties shirts and tops, and plus size mock neck tops got lots of love too. Plus size sheer and mesh shirts hit the scene in the 90’s, and plus size plaid button-up tops were everywhere.
