Denim and a harvest #denim # harvest
It's officially 2009! Welcome to the new year! Our crystal ball predicts that the retro look will be blazin & # 39; this year! You won & # 39; not being able to turn a corner without seeing sweater dresses, colored tights, leggings (yes! What does that mean for glasses, you might ask? Big things! HUGE! With full-vintage, retro-looking glasses, all the rage will be all the rage when paired with your favorite clothes! How do you get away with pairing your favorite retro look with your favorite vintage style glasses without making yourself that old? It's simple and we tell you how!
1950s: Back in the good days Buddy Holly glasses were swell for guys and women like LeeRemick & # 39; s glasses in Anatomy of a Murder were so nice.
So how do you wear the clothes in the 1950s without looking like you are in the 1950s? Slim jeans are hot today, especially when worn with flats or boards. Pair darker colored denim with a white shirt, maybe a cardigan (a longer one is more modern) with some flat shoes and dark plastic frames! Another option for women is to pair a modern stylish bubble skirt with a tighter shirt, a pair of Mary-Jane shoes and horn colored glasses! Men can also wear a cardigan but a black shirt over a white shirt with slightly tighter jeans (think James Dean) is very hot!
1960s: When the Jumpin & # 39; and boppin & # 39; switched to swayin & # 39; and protesting, clothing shifted from large and fluid to shape-fitting and micro-mini. Faye Dunaway wore hip glasses in Thomas Crown Affair and John Lennon alternated between angled frames and metal glasses.
When replicating 60 & # 39; s chic it is important to remember flower power without looking like a flower child. The early 60's were fantastic with jumpers and colored clothes. Today we have colorful leggings (they have MUCH better coverage) that pair very well with t-shirt dresses, sweater dresses and modern jumpers. Remember to choose accessories to accentuate it, like earrings or a necklace, but stay away from making your whole outfit the same bright color ... or even some bright colors. You don't have to look like a fruit salad.
1970s: feelin & # 39; groovy? So was Jan Smithers in the glasses from the hit show WKRP in Cincinnati! Punkin & # 39; Hard core was Elvis Costello in his own version of Buddy Holly glasses frame!
70s fashion really wasn't too bad ... unless you were one of the villagers. Wide leg trousers are best paired with eyeglasses frames which are slightly more delicate with cool cloth-lined boots (it lengthens the leg) and a slim fitting tshirt or sweater. High waisted trousers are a wonderful alternative to the popular low rise but do not return to the 70s, keep the modern look. Men can still get away with wearing a plaid shirt (lighter - no woodland styles!) Over a white tshirt with some loose fitting jeans and a pair of aviators!
1980s: wide neck sweaters, leggings, leg warmers, sweater dresses, big hair AND big glasses! Who can forget those times? Lots of people. DMC from RUNDMC made big black plastic glasses frames hip again! My first pair of glasses was similar to his - only blue!
Fortunately, these styles are hot again, but sweater dresses should only be worn with a thick belt and funky glasses. Leg warmers can be worn under boots with leggings. Please avoid the big hair! Guys have it easy - a polo shirt with a popped collar and aircraft gives a modern take on Fast Times at Ridgemont High!
