The Mod Look for Everyone

The Mod look from the 60’s seems to be inspiration on runways everywhere. Sweet Pea is just one of many designers who is turning the classic mod look into a modern style and here at Vintage Fringe we have found many mod patterns and cuts that can be a great addition to any one’s personal style.  After all, new vintage style clothing is what Vintage Fringe is all about.

Sweet Pea Mod Retro Tunic

So what do we at vintage fringe recommend to turn your mod on? First we love this Mod Retro Tunic from Sweet Pea. Pair this bold and colorful Rupert patterned tunic with leggings, chunky jewelry, and a darkly lined eye and you’ll capture the look of the modern mod.  If sleeveless isn’t your thing I adore another variation on this fabulous look, at Vintage Fringe we also love Sweet Pea’s Retro Boatneck Dress also in the Rupert pattern.

This dress is a bit longer than the tunic and would look great with high boots, leggings, or even dark colored tights.   Both looks are fun and flirty and will keep you fresh and modern this fall.  To find designer dresses for fall just visit us at Vintage Fringe.

Fashion Trends: The Long Cardigan a Must Have for Every Wardrobe

1x1 8 Button Cardigan

Splendid 8 Button Cardigan

It’s an undeniable and unexpected fashion trend that has become a must have for every wardrobe…the long cardigan. Today’s cardigans are not the cardigans we used to see on Mr. Rogers or your Grandpa, they are actually the perfect layer for almost every occasion. Some of our favorite summer/fall cardigans have more of a lightweight feel than a jacket and are certainly more versatile. Cardigans can also be paired with so many accessories from scarfs to leggings to skinny jeans.

At Vintage Fringe we have numerous cardigans to choose from. My favorite cardigan is Splendid’s 1×1 8 Button Cardigan. What I love about this cardigan is the waist band at the end of the long cardigan. This added detail flatters every body. I can wear this cardigan anywhere with anything. I actually wear this cardigan every time I fly because it is the perfect fashionable and lightweight layer that can cover some of my midsection flaws and let’s be honest, most of us have a few flaws we would like to cover up.

Splendid Cotton Bamboo Short Sleeve Cardigan

Another favorite cardigan I also adore is the Cotton Bamboo Short Sleeve Cardigan also by Splendid. What I love about this cardigan is the added seam detail which is so hot this season as well as the flared cut to the short sleeves that actually slims the look of my arms. This cardigan is fun to wear and especially with the pocket detail that only looks cute with a cardigan this length.

I wear  this tank by itself with jeans, or layer it with a cardigan and it is perfect for a day of running errands or a night out!  The pattern features a great mix of navy, lilac, light blue, and fuschia colors.  The great colors combined with the length of this tank always looks hot with a set of dark jeans or even leggings.  Find this tank and others from Sweet Pea or our other great designers now at Vintage Fringe.

Splendid Clothing is Worth Every Penny

The Splendid Clothing line is all about fashionable and flattering clothing made from the softest and highest quality fabrics, which are almost always machine washable. One of my favorite versatile pieces this summer is the Splendid Cotton Slub Hoodie.  Made of Splendid’s french terry fabric, which is a great soft, sweatshirt fabric, this top can be worn as a short dress, swim cover up, or sporty top.

Just like so much of stylish designer clothing this season, the length is trendy and flattering allowing this top to be worn in so many different styles with so many different combinations.   Not to mention the great empire waist with a tie giving this top that added feminine touch.  I love the green color that is so in this summer.    Another favorite Splendid tee that I have been wearing this summer is the sublime Oscelot Print silk/cotton boat neck tee.
