Vintage is back

Fashion seems to have taken a turn for vintage this season with the waisted dress and fuller skirts. Complementing this 50's look is the cardigan, belts and lots of ruffles and other feminine touches. Over all it makes a pretty change in the fashion scene.

Louis Vuitton and Prada have both brought in a range of what appear to be 50's inspired clothing for the 2012 Spring-Summer fashion season. I love the pastels, lace and chic little skirts and jackets!

 "(...) Vintage [clothing] is not only glorious and stylish, it's also the way forward in terms of recycling. Whenever I go into great vintage stores, I wonder why we ever buy new things."
- Thandie Newton (British actress)

The fashion that we see every day on the street isn't as stylised as that of the designers, but it shows the same influences. Below are some examples of clothing found out and about in 2012 compared to some 50's dress patterns.

I'm excited to see such pretty clothes back in style. Finally the fashion world will let me look like a lady!!
