Winter is not really my season. Wait, that’s an understatement. Let me rephrase that: Winter is totally not my season (with exception of the holiday season). Basically, I want spring on the 2nd of January. January is in fact already my least favorite month, because of the lack of sunlight, skin troubles and all the layers of clothes you have to wear. So it’s typically retro sweater weather.
When you’re into retro fashion, your well-trained retro sight will spot interesting items anywhere. I already shared a few of my favorite retro webshops with you. Every now and then, I do go on an offline shopping spree in the popular shops, although I do skip the fitting part. I am always surprised how much modern vintage items and accessories you can find in the mainstream shops.
On weekdays and workdays, I tone my outfits a little bit down. That’s why I like to combine accessories and clothes from mainstream shops for a work-proof look and of course, I also have my casual days. Not on Friday though. I fall in the casual Monday category.
Remember the days when high waisted bikinis and bathing suits were not popular at all in our present fashion world? Times change, opinions change, trends change… Or actually: bringing the old fashion back is the current trend. One of the best fashion trends of course in the world of every retro fashion fanatic. In this case, retro swimwear is more popular than ever.
In my retro fashion closet the dresses, skirts, high waisted pants and retro style tops are represented very well. Retro swimwear and bikinis? Not so much. Time to do something about it…
