How To Make Retro Fashion Looks Work For You

These days, the trends of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s are all in vogue and while we are totally here for the experimental fashions that evolved from those decades, pulling them off in our daily lives can feel like an impossible ordeal.

Don’t fret! We are here to show you how to pull off retro clothing without looking like you’re going to a costume party.

The Wide-Legged Jean

Then

Now
Keep it simple with a button-down shirt

Overalls

Then
There are other ways to wear overalls without looking like a ’90s child-star on a sitcom

Now
Cute, comfy and perfect for fall

The Choker

Then
Christina Aguilera was adorable in the ’90s and frankly, we all wanted to be her but this choker needs a grown-up update.

Now
This elegant piece from Cyril is perfect for date nights and cocktail events. You can find a more affordable version here.

Retro Sunglasses 

Then
R.I.P Kurt Cobain

Now
Serve model off-the-runway vibes during after-school pick-up.

Lingerie as outwear

Then
There is a joke in 13 going on 30 about how the characters haven’t worn the ‘lingerie as outerwear’ look since the early ’90s.

Now
We encourage you to embrace your inner sexy. A satin dress cut on the bias can be very flattering and make you feel like a million bucks. If you need a little dose of courage, listen to Lizzo while you get dressed.
