WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WOMEN’S VINTAGE FASHION? Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today
40’s vintage fashion: Classic a-line dresses, often with button-up detailing, short sleeves, lapel collars, and stylish belts at the high-rise waist are a timeless staple of 1940s women’s fashion. Midi dresses in floral prints, and vibrant solids (especially navy blue dresses) were all the rage during this era. Long-line coats with fur collars, high-rise pleated pants, and long sleeve button-up blouses also became popular during this iconic fashion era.
50’s vintage fashion: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when swing dresses, fit-and-flare dresses, and sleeveless midi dresses first made their debut! (Think Marilyn in her timeless, white halter-top dress). This era also marks the rise of cocktail dresses. Tie-neck collars became a fashion must-have, and don’t forget the prints! Polka-dot dresses, plaid dresses, and deep emerald green dresses have been stealing hearts ever since. Cropped skinny pants, and high-waisted skinny cigarette pants were gaining popularity, and were paired with sleeveless button-up tops, stylish flats, or sensible kitten heels.
60’s vintage fashion: In the 1960’s, all manners of mini dresses became mainstream! The babydoll dress, smock dresses with Peter Pan collars, off the shoulder dresses, belted shift dresses, shirred dresses, smocked dresses, and FINALLY dresses with pockets! Bold floral print dresses, leopard print dresses, and colorblock dresses are still fashion hallmarks of this iconic era. Pleated mini skirts hit the scene, and Audrey Hepburn had everyone wearing black turtlenecks with high-rise skinny pants. And naturally, white go-go boots became the must-have footwear.
70’s vintage fashion: Flowy maxi dresses and kaftan dresses with bold geometric prints can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Halter tops, crop tops, tie-waist tops, and flare sleeve tops all made the scene. Bell bottoms, corduroy pants, corduroy skirts, wide-leg jeans, and sassy jumpsuits filled the disco dance floors. Pinafore dresses made a comeback in the 70’s, boho dresses first hit the scene, and the disco era also made way for sequin dresses and velvet dresses.
80’s vintage fashion: Cute mini dresses reached new heights in the 1980’s, and metallic print dresses with puff sleeves and tulle overlay took over prom night! Neon dresses ruled the dance floor, and Madonna made us fall in love with black mesh dresses as well as dresses with ruffles upon ruffles. The birth of hip-hop brought us baggy jeans and oversized button-up tops in the 80’s, while denim skirts, jean jackets, rainbow prints, neon colorblock, and animal prints were stretched out as far as the eye can see.
90's vintage fashion: Plaid mini skirts, and plaid dresses came back in a major way during the 1990s fashion era. Mock neck dresses and sheer dresses hit the red carpet, and nothing beat a floral slip dress layered under a flannel button-up top. Plaid pants, fitted blazers, low-rise jeans, and cute cardigans were everything! Denim overalls with cute crop tops, or a bodysuit was always a good call. Cute and casual sundresses, bodycon dresses, and color block dresses also show up in timeless 90’s era fashion. Finish your look with a pair of combat boots, wedge sandals, or chunky Mary Janes!
