While vintage style clothing is of course based on vintage fashions, in our focus to find women’s clothing that is vintage inspired, but also new and never worn, we attend markets to purchase these new vintage style items. Our latest market was last week and we wanted to let you know what to expect this spring in the upcoming vintage style trends. First, bold colors. Orange is very popular this year and so are blues and yellows. Second, long dresses are all the rage. Every line we viewed had many long dresses to remind us of the classic Whitney Houston dress in the 80s. We picked up a few in our purchases, so you’ll have to be sure and check them out. Next, tunic length tops are very popular. We love tunics so we found several tunic length tops at Sweet Pea. We hope you will love them as much as we do.
In short, we’re sure you will love our new items from our existing designers new collection of organic cotton Zooey tees, our tunics in bold patterns from Sweet Pea, and our spring colors from AlixK, our spring dresses from Zooey, Velvet, Splendid, and Ella Moss (coming soon to Vintage Fringe). We’re also betting that you’ll love the new stuff we have right around the corner too. New lines, new colors and new styles!
Vintage style has a host of meanings to different people. In an effort to dispel the myth that vintage style refers to old lady clothes, at Vintage Fringe we have found many vintage styles that are far from matronly or stuffy. One such example would be a new top from Splendid’s fall line that to us exemplifies timeless vintage style. The vintage example a sweatshirt worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s looks adorable on her (no surprise there).
Timeless Vintage Style
We couldn’t help but notice the similarity between this top and a couple of our new arrivals from Splendid.
They both even feature that classic sweatshirt V stiched in the center. Of course at Vintage Fringe, we love the little details like that which bring meaning to the Fringe in Vintage Fringe. In our opinion, the Splendid version is more sophisticated. The newer versions from Splendid also feature a few distinctions such as flared cuffs and a more fitted look, but we’re sure you will agree that both of these tops pass the test of being timeless. Not to mention that once you wear the Splendid top, you will be truly amazed by the luxurious feel of the fabric.
We find that such timeless tops will last beyond the quickly changing fashion fads. As this vintage style illustrates, such pieces will never go out of style. Plus when you feel the fabric you really won’t want to live without this top.
We currently have the Splendid Boatneck Long Sleeve Top available as shown in Coal (Dark Grey) and Russet (Orange).
