WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED ACCESSORIES ON SALE? Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today:
40’s Era Accessories on Sale: Rose gold-toned jewelry is a timeless staple of 1940s women’s fashion jewelry. Stud earrings, flowers and floral patterns fashioned from multi-colored gemstones were all the rage during this era. The timeless allure of charm bracelets also became popular during this iconic fashion era.
50’s Era Accessories on Sale: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when playful, oversized lucite and acrylic earrings and necklaces first made their debut! Layered pearl necklaces, cuff bracelets, and chunky statement necklaces became fashion must-haves.
60’s Era Accessories on Sale: In the 1960’s, all manners of oversized earrings that dangle became mainstream! In fact, oversized hoop earrings, dangling earrings, drop earrings, and statement necklaces became such a fashion phenomenon that it influenced women’s haircuts to get shorter and shorter to better showcase bold necklaces and earrings. Colorblock earrings, hoop earrings in bold colors, hippy-inspired dangling daisy earrings, black and white necklaces and earrings, and chunky bangles boasting geometric shapes, mod designs, and quirky pop art were everything in the 1960s, and that’s not all! The 60’s was also when animal-themed jewelry was really cemented in fashion history. Fox jewelry, leopard jewelry, and cat and dog-themed jewelry have been making us smile ever since.
70’s Era Accessories on Sale: Neon jewelry, tassel jewelry, chokers, and long layered necklaces can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Rainbow themed jewelry was everywhere, and lariat necklaces, beaded necklaces and earrings, and wooden jewelry were all the rage. Glittering chunky necklaces and earrings rivaled the disco ball on every dance floor and boho jewelry first hit the scene.
80’s Era Accessories on Sale: Bold and flashy neon jewelry reached new heights in the 1980’s, and mixed metal jewelry became popular. Hoop earrings of all shapes, sizes, and colors filled jewelry boxes to the brim. Jewelry with stars and multi-strand beaded necklaces became celebrity favorites. (Think Madonna and Cyndi Lauper) Because the 80’s marks an era when women really began to take their rightful place in professional industries, oversized gold and silver necklaces paired with stylish pantsuits became a shining symbol of feminine financial independence.
90’s Era Accessories on Sale: Chokers became the must-have statement necklace of the 90’s, and cute stud earrings, asymmetrical earrings, and little motif earrings with smiley faces, ying-yangs, hearts, animals, stars, and flowers filled the accessory boutiques at every mall. Puka shell jewelry was all the rage along with beaded necklaces, quirky pendant necklaces, and chunky statement necklaces.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED WOMEN’S HAIR ACCESSORIES? Let’s take a look!
40’s Hats and Hair Sale Accessories: In the 1940's fedora hats, pill box hats, darling fascinators, and wide-brimmed hats with bows or flowers were perfect for keeping the sun out of a fashionista's eyes. Floral headbands, embellished hair combs, and hair clips with flowers also kept a neatly stylish updo looking feminine and fashionable.
50’s Hats and Hair Sale Accessories: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when gold-toned and gem-encrusted hair combs were a formal occasion must-have. For more casual looks, stylish hair scarfs, and wearing bandanas as headbands became all the rage. Polka dot headbands, headbands with top knots, turban style headbands also hit the fashion scene in the 1950's.
60’s Hats and Hair Sale Accessories: In the 1960’s, all manners of floppy, wide-brimmed sun hats became mainstream! Mod styles introduced newsboy hats into popular women's fashion, and French berets also surged in popularity in America.
70’s Hats and Hair Sale Accessories: Slouchy fisherman caps, floppy wool hats, and corduroy caps came into fashion in the 1970's. This is also the era when boho-chic hippy hats with ultra wide brims, groovy floral, or playful paisley prints became popular. In the 1970's, women's haircuts got really short to better showcase oversized hoop earrings, and wide headbands, hair scarfs, and hair accessories with feathers and beads also suited the times. Braided headbands, velvet headbands, hair clips with funky daisy motifs also filled the disco dance floors.
80’s Hats and Hair Sale Accessories: Lace headbands, and especially black lace headbands (thank you, Madonna) were all the rage in the 1980's. The first scrunchies came onto the scene and were perfect for the era's trademark high ponytails, side ponies, and messy top knots. Barrettes with oversized bows definitely define 80's fashion culture, and the claw hair clip was an absolute must-have. Berets, bucket hats, and visors also made the list of favorite headgear during this iconic fashion era.
90’s Hats and Hair Sale Accessories: Bucket hats, slouchy beanies, denim bucket hats with floral appliques (think Blossom), and baseball caps go mainstream in the 1990's! Vibrant acrylic hair clips, butterfly clips, claw clips, and scrunchies of all colors and sizes overflowed from vanity drawers, and cowboy hats moved beyond the Southwest into mainstream fashion.
