So, I did another guest post for Inspirety Fashion’s blog. This time I tried to explore the “Retro Girly” trend seen in many different brands lately. Some of my favorite brands featuring “retro girly” right now:
(I accidently switched place for the picutres for “fabulous” and “cecil mcbee”)
- Liz Lisa
Their spring collection is called “French Bohemian”. It’s a vintage bohemian style with lace, floral print dresses and overalls, flowy tops, high boots and wide-brim and boater hats. Very sweet and romantic.
- CECIL McBEE
Their “Fabulous Spring Collection 2011” is aiming for a more glamourous retro style. It’s still feminine and sweet, but a bit more elegant and sophisticated, and it feels more grown up.
Their spring theme is “Playful” with a vision of “The American Gal” in mind. Their collection is very colorful, and their main focus seems to be patterns with lots of polka and gingham print. Also lots of frills, bows, puffy sleeves and puffy skirts. A very sweet and flirty retro style.
- Ank Rouge
Their fashion is mostly for teenagers, but I still like many of their items. They have a very sweet and romantic style, quite similar to Liz Lisa. Lots of sheer fabrics with floral, polka prints, peter pan collars, tie blouse styling, light colored denim, high-waist shorts and puffy pumpkin shorts.
Their spring concept is “Airy Garden” with a theme of floral, relaxing and natural. Floral, polka, gingham prints, lace collars, mini dresses, ruffles, bows, pumpkin shorts, wide legged pants. Everything is very retro girly.
And speaking of brands, I really want this from CECIL McBEE
