This Season's Vintage Dress Trends

Making sense of fashion trends, especially in the world of vintage fashion, can be tricky. With summer coming right up, many of us are ready to dust off our favorite vintage dresses from our closets or buy new ones to keep up with the trends. One of the wonderful things about trends is that they always return – so, even though these high quality vintage pieces were made decades ago, they will always come back in style.

Today, we’ll go over some of this season’s trends in vintage dresses and how you can use this information to uplevel your look.

These vintage dresses create a look that’s both retro and timeless. This style of swing dress is perfect for outings during the day, from brunch to errands to gatherings where you know you’ll want an elegant photo op. Hallmarks of these swing vintage dresses are the tight waistline and the accentuated, wide flared dress that lands around the knee.

A few simple ways to style this vintage dress trend are by wearing it with either cowboy boots or heeled sandals – both will help elevate the dress! For chillier days, you can add a vintage coat overtop.

Vintage dresses like these are an easy way to achieve an elegant yet effortless look. They’re perfect for daytime or nighttime, and a great fit for when you need a quick outfit to throw on after spending time at the beach.

One thing that sets vintage sundresses apart from recently made ones is their patterns and colors. Choosing vintage over modern allows you to wear designs that will make you stand out and liven up your wardrobe over minimal, more modern styles.

Style vintage sundresses with a matching pair of sunglasses, large earrings, and whatever shoe best fits the look you’re going for. Upscale sandals or flip flops, maxi dresses can be dressed up or down - the choice is yours!
