We all love a new pair of shoes or a beautiful, of-the-moment handbag. Yet sometimes it’s those one-of-a-kind retro pieces that really make an outfit pop. Shopping for good retro pieces can be a challenge, but figuring out when and how to put them on can be just as hard! These 10 everyday pieces spice things up with minimal effort and bring us back to older, memorable times:
1.Frayed Denim Shorts from MATO
Embrace 80s grunge with these flattering frayed denim cutoffs. The lightweight fabrication and flared silhouette ooze a nice old-school vibe with a hint of girliness.
2. Polka Dot Midi Dress from Styleonme
Look for interesting and iconic prints. Case in point: this polka dot midi dress featuring a sash that sits high on the waist, followed by a flaring skirt with subtle pleats. The white dot print adds just the right retro touch. So versatile that it fits for most formal and semi-formal occasions.
3. Graphic Tee from MATO
Gone is the golden age of the printed “rock ‘n’ roll” T-shirt, but that nostalgic look will always have a special place in my heart. And when it comes to vintage-inspired rock ‘n’ roll graphic tees, we are quite spoilt for choice!
4. Oversized Denim Jacket from MePanda
For vintage-style clothing, don’t forget to look at the boy’s section as well! You’ll love the slightly slouchy fit and perfect worn-in feel of this iconic oversized denim jacket, best matched with modern separates for a striking contrast.
5. Open-Knit Longline Cardigan from GOROKE
Breezy layers with interesting details are some of my favorite finds. This open-knit longline cardigan – with its cute scalloped hem and crochet knit – easily spice up simple day looks.
6. Lace Maxi Dress from Moonshine
The delicate lace bodice, sultry side-vent and retro design make this stunner easily pass as a great flea market piece. I assure you that this is the cream of the crop!
7. Flowy Long Skirt from TOM & RABBIT
A long, flowy midi-length skirt is essential to achieving a sweet retro look. The classic design stands the test of time. Bonus points for the insouciant side-vents that guarantee comfortable movement (and turned heads)!
8. Beaded Choker from Seoul Young
An eye-catching accessory is a failsafe way to spice up a little white dress. I’m absolutely in love with this vintage-inspired choker. Trust it can divert some attention from plunging necklines!
9. Teardrop Earrings from MaBelle
Striking that tricky balance between full-on shoulder-grazing chandeliers and subtle studs are these stunning white gold teardrops. The key is to wear them with a simple hair style and a bare neckline.
10. Pointed-Toe Slingback Heels from JUSTONE
If you’re looking for a cute pair of slingbacks, this monochrome version that screams subdued sexy is good news. Slightly retro and mod in appearance, this sensible style is the perfect substitute for mere pointed-toe heels.
