Whether you’re new to vintage clothing and are still trying to establish your style, or have been collecting and wearing vintage clothing for years – this interesting and informative guide will take you through the most popular styles from each collaborative era through the vintage fashion decades…



This broad category includes everything from the high-waisted frilly necked dresses of the early part of the 19th century to the bustle gowns and lace tea dresses of the Victorian era. If you like your vintage clothing from even further back then you may be looking in the wrong places. These are antique items so search for sellers who stock clothing labelled as Renaissance, Regency, Romantic, Victorian or Antique.

50s Fashion - The Decade of Style

50s Fashion – The 1950’s were exciting years in the world of fashion. Following a period of imposed frugality during the war, the media was highlighting glamour that had never been seen before so widely, and the effects that Hollywood would have on the way that women dressed during this period was to create an impact that no-one could have anticipated.

The early 1950s saw the introduction of more ladies into the workplace, and the styles that were created for day to day wear included suits with a tailored look, skirts that hugged waistlines, and blouses that were worn discreetly under tailored jackets that were pulled in at the waist to give a flattering and glamorous look that accentuated shape and style.

Vintage Clothing vs The High Street

The High Street is currently awash with vintage inspired designs; tea dresses, pea coats and tartan drainpipes. Of course, the surge in popularity for genuine original vintage clothing has been responsible for this, which begs the question; should you choose the real thing or opt for the (often slightly cheaper) High Street offerings? Well, as a retailer of vintage clothing you can probably guess our answer. So here are our reasons why we believe original vintage (or vintage reproductions by independent manufacturers) will always be the best option:

High Street Clothes are Mass Produced Many vintage items are one of a kind, so you won’t bump into someone wearing the same dress at a party. Being able to hand­pick an entirely unique look is rare, vintage allows you to do just that.

Then of course there are ethical considerations. In an age of mass production and mass waste, buying second hand is an environmentally friendly alternative. There is also the sticky issue of big name High Street retailers using sweat shops to manufacture their clothing.

Wearing Vintage Clothing

One of the nicest things about clothing fashions is the fact that they are constantly changing. Trendy items and must have outfit choices are versatile and often changed quickly which means that fashion is something that can never become boring. That said, sometimes this ever change in fashion and trends can become expensive – especially if you are someone that strives to keep up to date with all of the latest cat-walk items.

However, the good news is that it isn’t always about buying new items and sometimes there are items that you can make use of in your wardrobe, so the cost is zero! One of the biggest thing about fashion like this is that retro and vintage items often come back into fashion, which can also help keep the cost of staying on trend affordable too.

Of course if you want to buy vintage clothing you can do that too! Vintage clothing can be swapped up and worn in so many ways, so it is easy to style it in a way that suits you and keep things interesting!

1960s Vintage Clothing - Through The Decades

1960s vintage clothing is currently as popular as ever, with many of the current high street styles taking inspiration from the swinging sixties. If you step into any fashion retailer you will see shift dresses, mini skirts, tunic tops and peter pan collars – all taken from original 60’s fashion.

When we think of 1950s vintage fashion we tend to think of films such as Grease and even images of that infamous Grace Kelly wedding dress.
