Vintage Fashion: Making the Old into the New

Vintage Fashion: Making the Old into the New

The term vintage fashion is used all over the place today and seems to mean a variety of different things to different people. In fact, the word vintage simply means old – so what is the difference between an 1800’s hoop skirt and a 1950’s pin up dress?

Can they both be vintage fashion? Actually, in the fashion world, the term vintage refers to clothing that is twenty to one hundred years old. Today, this could refer to clothing from the 1900’s through the 1990’s – quite a large span!

However, the most popular vintage clothing and the style that is most often referred to by this term today is the classic look of the decades surrounding the 1950’s. It is in this era that we find pin up dresses, crinoline skirts, polka dot blouses and red cherry prints. These styles may be over fifty years old, but they have never been more popular or widely available as they are today.

Several online shops carry vintage designs in a variety of sizes and styles. A few of the most classic pin up dress shops for vintage fashion include Unique Vintage, Top Vintage, and Lady Vintage. These sites offer the biggest variety of styles and vintage accessories to make a retro outfit for any occasion.

From feminine floral prints to rockabilly icons and jeans, vintage fashion is pretty and plentiful wherever you look.

Eve Couture: Whimisical and Sexy Vintage Inspired Fashion
The vintage inspired fashion from Eve Couture is whimsical, a little hip and definitely sexy.

Since 2013, this German label has focused on providing its pinup and rockabella consumers with exclusive handmade clothing. Designer, Eva-Maria Geißer, is not new to the fashion industry, as Eve Couture is her follow-up label to Black Jewels Clothing, which she has successfully presented during Berlin Fashion Week.

In this line, Eva creates vintage inspired clothing, which is suited for everyday wear or a night out on the town. She deliberately manages a small and limited collection, guaranteeing rockabellas to add one-of-a-kind pieces to their already uniquely retro style wardrobe. From wildly designed form fitting mini dresses to quirky detailed hats, every item in this label is different from what you’d typically see in a vintage inspired clothing store.

Fashionable pinups will be drawn to the individualistic style of Eve Couture. The dresses, tops, sweaters, jackets and boleros are full of colorful animal prints, polka dots and stripes, and they allow the world to see a peek at your wild side.

While the pieces are feminine, they are sexy without looking trashy, but they’re not typical styles for your average girly girl. However, there are small elements any girl can appreciate, like sweet bows and purposefully detailed buttons.

The looks inspired in the Eve Couture line definitely fall within the fashion from the 1950s. Many of the styles are similar to steampunk fashion, while others are just the right amount of fantastical. You might even feel like a modern day Alice in Wonderland, which is a source of inspiration for many of today’s most fashion-forward collections. The stockings available are incredibly attractive and sensual, but note that these are not manufactured by Eva or her label.

As they say, “Good things come to those who wait.” Since each item is made-to-order, expect a three week interval from the time you place the order with Eve Couture and the finished product. Once the product has been shipped, Eva includes a two year warranty, which is a praiseworthy sign of her integrity as a retailer and high quality designer.
