Outfit Ideas: Retro Flashback

So I don’t know how many of you have seen the top of this page, but I believe that somewhere in there it says something about RETRO STYLE. Yeah, I’m a retro style junkie, so obviously one of my favorite things in life is rockabilly clothing, and Modcloth is an amazing site for anyone with a flare for the past.

Here’s some outfit pairings for anyone who isn’t so familiar with the retro scene and is looking for some basics to add to their wardrobe, or maybe someone who has been around the style for awhile but needs something new.

Pencil skirts are a great intro piece, and a surefire way to get that pin up sillhouette, especially with this high waisted, pencil jumper.

Flowy skirts like these also make a great pairing for a retro inspired look.

Or maybe you’re the type of girl who prefers pants. These high waisted skinny jeans are amazing.

Tops that enhance your natural waistline are a great way to add that hourglass figure to your silhouette if you naturally lack curves (or if you want to further enhance the curves you have).

And of course, a cute tie front, collared shirt is a great match with your high waisted pants or skirts.

Now these are just a few examples of modern pieces with a hint of retro flare. Check out Modcloth’s full site for more flashback fashion, and if you have a great retro styled outfit you want to share, feel free to email pictures to lilsubmarines@gmail.com with a short description of where you got the pieces and why you love them, and maybe I’ll feature you on the blog!

Love, Mel!
