Retro Style Clothing
Retro style clothing typically represents styles worn in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and even 1970s eras. Pin up, rockabilly and vintage are common aspects of retro styles, incorporating everything from poodle skirts to greaser girl jumpsuits to bell bottomed jeans and floral tops.
Since retro style clothing can consist of such a wide range of styles from different eras, there are plenty of looks and patterns that go along with it. Flowing ruffled skirts, poodle skirts, pencil skirts, halter tops, fitted corsets, seamed pantyhose, sky high stilettos, polka dots, leopard print and flirty play suits are just some of the styles that are often grouped into the most popular types of retro style clothing.
If you’re looking to add a bit of retro flair to your wardrobe but just don’t feel like browsing thrift stores for true retro clothing, there are plenty of online boutiques that offer retro-inspired clothing. For fun and flirty retro styles, check out What Katie Did, Babygirlboutique or Miss Hussy Clothing. If you’re more into rockabilly and love the edgier retro styles, Modemerr, Tokyo Motor Grrrl, Dismantled Fashions, Starlets and Harlets or Mondo Kaos. Classic pin up outfits can be found at My Baby Jo, Moxie Minx, Stop Staring Clothing, Lolita Girl Clothing, and Pinup Girl Clothing. To finish off any retro outfit with the perfect retro and pin up inspired lingerie, Purrfect Pineapples and Girdlebound both carry an array of delicate, sexy undergarment and lingerie pieces.
One of the best aspects of retro style clothing is that it is designed to enhance the natural beauty and curves of women of all ages, shapes and sizes. Whether you’re an XXS or XXL, retro style clothing will enhance your beauty rather than attempt to hide it. It takes confidence, a fierce attitude and a penchant for all things retro in order to truly pull off some of the more classic pieces, but regardless, any woman can rock retro styles in a way that suits her perfectly.
