Vintage Spring Trends

As the cold winter months of January and February get further and further away, March brings with it the possibility of spring. Less of those winter jackets will be seen and more vintage dresses and little cardigans. The sun will shine. And for many this impending season is their opportunity to shop for their new vintage Spring wardrobe. So for those who haven’t begun looking for key pieces, or for those who need a little inspiration, we’ve compiled a list of vintage fashion trends to try for Spring 2014.

Vintage Dresses
The first item in mind for your new vintage spring wardrobe is a vintage dress. Or if you hold the opinion that you can never have too many dresses, then opt for a number of vintage dresses to spruce up your closet this spring. And when we think vintage, we think floral patterns and clinched waists. From the 60s, bright yellows and greens decorate the fabric, creating beautiful vintage dresses , which stand out from the crowd. And back to the 40s the floral patterns are less in your face and more classic. The colours are more pastel in tone and smaller in size. Or you could decide on a vintage tribal print dress, which looks great and is on trend for this season. And if the weather makes a turn for the worse, pair your selected dress with a cardigan, shawl or even a leather jacket, depending on what look you are trying to create.

Pastels
One trend you may also want to look out for this season is that of pastel colors. These can include delicate lilacs, subtle blues or pretty pinks. Pick the shade that suits your skin tone and style best, or use this season as a chance to inject a more feminine, soft edge to your wardrobe. What makes this trend perfect for vintage dressers is that any item goes. You could opt for a full pastel vintage suit, a skirt, or even just the accessories. Have fun with this trend and even try and mix and match various types of pastel colours for an even more unique look.

Vintage skirts
For the perfect spring wardrobe, vintage skirts also need to make an appearance. And a key trend for this season is the tea length skirt. These vintage skirts are between a midi and a maxi skirt. You may choose to pair this with a cropped top, a light jumper, or you may decide to skip tea length skirts and choose a vintage dress of the same length. What’s more; with their clinched in waists and ladylike silhouette, you are bound to feel sexy and feminine this springtime.

Vintage jackets
Now it may be tempting fate discussing the next key trend, but as the weather is un-predictable, purchasing the right vintage jacket for this season should be on the top of everyone’s list. For Spring 2014 the trend that’s gracing our jackets is collarless. These are jackets that come without the lapel or the collar. A simple grey or black would look perfect to wear from the office to that evening out with friends. But you could experiment with prints and colours and elect something that stands out a little. And with vintage fashion, your opportunities are endless in terms or prints and patterns.
