We Love | Vintage Dresses

Posted on August 26 2011

Dresses from bygone eras have undoubtedly shaped the way women have dressed for generations.  The hourglass shapes of Dior continue to inspire modern catwalks everywhere as they emulate the ultimate in femininity with ingenious tailoring and styles.  Fashion of the '40s and '50s celebrated the curvaceous figure, highlighting the waist, hips and bosom that later decades attempted to hide.  But to look at modern trends, this silhouette remains the most beautiful.  The starlets of these eras still hold a light as the most stylish and iconic, blowing all other sex symbols out of the water. There is something so enticing about being demure.  The clothes that cover really speak volumes, which is thanks to less is more detailing, with a flicker of an exposed zip that drive men more wild than the overtly exposed limbs of today. Lauren Bacall, Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake continue to inspire many.  Aside from their own natural elegance and grace, the way they dressed played a big part in their iconic status for fashion history.  And we at Beyond Retro have to pinch ourselves each time we marvel upon pristine vintage pieces when they come into our clutches.  Our vintage sections in store are inspired; like stepping into a world of vintage Narnia.  And these beautiful dresses can be yours from our online selection and in all stores.
