Summer trends: Retro

By Silhouettes1 · June 13, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, summer has begun! What are the key trends and looks that everyone’s talking about this year?

One, of course, is retro.

We’re not talking old-old school, just a dip back in time to the 70s punk glam look or the 60s feminine style. For the 70s look, think high-waisted pants by day and shimmery waterfall dresses by night. As for makeup, heavily smoky eyes by night (think Studio 54 glamour) and a clean, transparent look by day.

When most people think 1960s, they think hippie flower children, but there’s an early 60s trend that’s a great way to accentuate your fuller figure and feminine curves. The 1960s housewife is a look that’s showing up on fashion runways all around the world. Cinched waists, long full skirt—and in this picture some skin showing—because it’s 2011 after all.

And here’s a 1960s school girl look that’s fun. This is more of a fall/winter look, but you can see another long, full skirt:

Keep your eyes peeled for 60s and 70s looks showing up near you!
