TAKING IT BACK WITH MY TOP 5 RETRO STYLES

by - December 08, 2016




One of my favorite tunes from Nigerian Artist Lindsey Brown, "back to the 90's is always ringing in my head or playing out loud whenever I am dressing Retro. Vintage or retro with items and clothing’s have taken over the fashion world, and as much as most of you want to join the trend I can bet a couple of you need a little help deciding what it is in or out. That is why, just like Lindsey Brown said, I would love to take you back .So here are my top 5 retro looks that would help get you started on your vintage slayage adventure..

  • THE PURRRFECT EYES

No retro party without the signature cat eye glasses, better worn with Red or dark lipsticks as done by Marilyn Monroe.

  • THE WIDE LEGGED PANTS

After a long time of the "skinny jeans and leggings" era, the wide legged pants that was popular in the 80’s is back and need I say, it is "kickin".

  • THE VINTAGE SWIM WEAR

High waist bathing suit was a very popular trend in the 90's and after years of being kicked out by more revealing beach wear, the high waist beach pants still prove to be the most fashionable.

  •  MORE PRINTS

Although prints, especially on swing dresses were one of the best things that happened in the early 90s, it was considered a bit loud to wear. It is no surprise it is back and much better, as it is impossible to bring a good thing down.
  • TIMELESS DENIMS

Denims have always been a huge trend beginning from the late 70s, but it is recently that most people appreciate the true beauty of denims. As it did in the 80's, denims just scream "versatility" in a cute way.

Retro items, which at some point were just items; proves that fashion is a continuous cycle of beauty. Since vintage clothing’s are winning now more than ever, I advise that you get in with the trend.
