Retro Fashion For Women
Submitted By: Rebecca Stevenson
There are many things that you need to consider if you love retro styles with your wardrobe. You have to be careful today when you practice wearing clothing that is retro. The things you need to consider is the style, how they look on you, what is popular, and more. Considering these things can help you make a better decision on the style and fashion you choose to wear.
Retro is back for the most part. Many styles like bell bottoms have tapered down a bit and not the pants are known as boot cut but they still have a small bell shape to them. The larger bell bottoms are out just as fast as they came back. It is very important to know what is in style and what types of things actually remain in style. When you wear things like skinny jeans and you are skinny you can be sure this retro look will remain in fashion if they look good on you. The retro styles are considered to be in the 1030s and the 1940s. Many of the things that you should wear from then include the leggings and cropped jackets. However, keep in mind that retro seems to pop in and out of fashion all of the time. This means that if the retro pieces that you own are out of style now it doesn’t mean that they won’t be back later so don’t get rid of them.
Another thing to consider when you want to go with the retro look is if the items look good on you. Just because you found something that looks super cute and you bought the outfit with coupons so you got a really great deal doesn’t mean that it will look good on you. Be sure that the outfit looks good on you and matches your body type. Don’t wear anything that looks funny with the shape and contours of your body.
Retro styles are often found in consignment stores and thrift shops and you can get a really good deal on some great clothing. If you are tight on a budget keep this in mind. You don’t have to pay hundreds of dollars for clothing when you can get some amazing garments in the thrift shops. Some retro clothing looks even better worn a little bit and not so new. If you aren’t sure what you are looking for or what will have the look then go through a few magazines and take a few photos of styles you are looking for with you when you go shopping. This will help you find items that are best.
The retro look is a lot of fun and will get you many compliments. There are many things that you need to consider when you are trying to achieve a retro look which includes the type of clothing you are buying and if it is still in style. Be sure to wear things that fit you well and accentuate your body the way they should. Also, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a new wardrobe when you can find things at thrift stores for cheap.
