We all know that Vintage style doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. However, what do we mean when we say ‘Vintage’? Some people have particular decades of style in mind; others think it means anything older than last season’s runway! An idea about vintage that hasn’t been embraced by enough people is that the shape and cut of the dress is actually more important than what era it reminds us of. It goes without saying that there is a huge variety of body shapes and sizes, and not all dresses will flatter every figure. You wouldn’t walk into a high street store and buy a piece that fit you badly, so why do the same for the sake of a retro find swing dress ?
When it comes to vintage silhouettes the Skater dress is without a doubt the most universally flattering style. With its nipped in waist and flared skirt this cut manages to create curves if you desire, or flatter those parts you wish to hide. Not only this, the flared skirt actually creates the illusion of longer legs, so that absolutely everyone can benefit from the Skater, to look and feel fabulous.
There’s even better news; the high street has caught on to the skater craze so that you can find your dream dress without scouring vintage and thrift stores endlessly. Buying authentic vintage can be incredibly satisfying and rewarding, especially when pieces are a bargain, but this endeavour is also likely to be hard work and not always productive. To ensure you find a piece that fits seamlessly and doesn’t have an unreasonable price tag, head to the high street or online fashion stores.
It’s never been easier to find skater style dresses in a variety of colors, prints and fabrics. Polka dots, pastels, stripes and embellished with lace; the possibilities are truly endless. Start a Skater collection! You can never have too many of these stunning dresses because they go a long way to making the simplest and yet most effective outfits. Paired with a cute pair of ballet pumps, or some up to date wedge heels for extra glam, you will be ready to walk out the door in minimal time. The more eye-catching the print, the less you need to accessorize in order to make an impact. If you do want to add some extra touches, however, a waist belt and a clutch bag in complementary tones will do the job.
