Retro dresses are all about fierce fashion, confidence and a sophisticated look while still appearing sexy and seductive. A good retro dress will channel the styles of the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, consisting of form-fitting corsets, pencil skirts, ruffle skirts, lace, bows, bright colors, fierce prints, and chunky belts or accessories to finish off the look.
