Fifty Shades of Fashion
Incorporating 50s Style into Your Modern Look
No, this isn’t a post about 50 Shades of Grey. It’s a blog post about incorporating your love for the 50s into your modern style! The fifties have been making a comeback in recent years thanks to throwback Thursday pictures on social media and retro-inspired fashion lines popping up everywhere. With EmmK 50-talls klær we’ll talk all about how you can make the most out of your love for vintage clothes without sacrificing any of the current trends you’re loving today.
The first thing you have to think about is what era of the 50s you love most. The 1950s saw a lot of changes in fashion, from clothes stores changing their look and style as more people owned televisions at home to women’s dresses becoming tighter and shorter after Marilyn Monroe became an overnight sensation with her curves on full display during the movie premiere for “The Seven Year Itch”. Think about your own personal favorite decade until now – perhaps it was 80s pop music or 90s grunge bands. Whatever it may be, this will help determine which direction you want to go when styling yourself today!
You can always mix current trends into vintage fashions if that works best for you; there really isn’t any strict rules here except paying attention to the specific era that you’re emulating.
It’s also important to keep in mind when shopping for vintage clothing online whether or not it will be shipping straight from another country. If your fifties-style clothes are coming directly from Japan, China, or Europe (or anywhere outside of North America), they’ll likely run smaller than what American sizes would be today; make sure you check measurements before placing an order!
Keep these things in mind and incorporate them into how you normally shop for new outfits – soon enough, everyone around town will want a piece of the retro look that has taken over fashion once again!… Read More →
