Vintage elements to go for –
1. Statement sleeves for the retro look
Make a lasting impression with those statement sleeves. Try dramatic smocked sleeves, elegant puffed sleeves or bishop sleeves with a modern twist. Flaunt your playful vibes with some vintage romantic styles.
One of the most timeless fashion trends from the Victorian era was the bulbous sleeve, also known as the mutton sleeve. Inspired by the fashionable Queen Victoria, a variety of puffed sleeve styles dominated the fashion industry during her reign and never truly left the trend cycles. Throughout the 20th century, actresses, royals, and ordinary people put on mutton sleeves. Even today, runways are bombarded with new, eclectic takes on exaggerated sleeves in bold prints and colors.
2. Appreciable collars
Collars from the Victorian era vintage fashion still make a trendy pick. Go for Peter pans, Ruffles or Johnny collars, and give some awe-inspiring fashion goals to those around you. Make a bold style statement with dashing collars of your modern vintage outfits.
Grand Peter Pan collars will forever remind us of Princess Diana’s silk wedding dress. The iconic gown was recently brought back to life on The Crown on Netflix, which depicted actress Emma Corrin in plenty of large collars.
You can pick your vibe when you are wearing your oversized collar! Whether you want to be a Victorian-era damsel, a secretly a wicked smart queen, an 80’s princess or a feminist judge trailblazing law reform!
A quiet monochrome style can be elevated by an oversized Peter Pan collar.
3. Feminine frills & romantic ruffles
Fancy frilled and ruffled outfits emit an utterly feminine vibe and bring back the old school romance in you. Ask a woman if she likes daintily frilled and ruffled dresses? The answer will be a resounding ‘yes’.
Ruffles, flounces and frills, this apparent stuff on our dresses, blouses and skirts historically have been an important element of dress design. There have been several periods when these little frills were very popular.
Looking back into history, we will conclude that today’s widely used ruffles have an ancient and interesting history.
