You Might Not Have Been Born Yet, But Your Wardrobe Is Getting Nostalgic

Blame the success of Mad Men, Amy Winehouse's (crack-concealing) beehive, or the inevitable fashion nostalgia rotation… because this season, editors are pulling at anything bearing a 1950s/early 60s era inspiration. Personally, I find that fashion and music tend to abandon modernity in favor of farther-reaching nostalgia during times of political uncertainty and economic problems. People find comfort in the fashions of more care-free times. Although dressing like Mary Tyler Moore or Donna Reed doesn't affect the housing market or divorce rate, it's chic. So, why complain?  Break out those skinny belts and full skirts. Just don't try to vacuum in heels. That's asking for blisters.

This dress by Jovovich Hawk ($300, was $460) is straight up movie starlet – Katharine Hepburn or Bette Davis would approve.

By Milly, this belted Serena dress ($355) is just asking for some red lipstick and pearls.

 

Simple. Red. Ladylike. You can't go wrong with this classic from Kay Unger ($330).

And don't forget eBay where you can shop for authentic vintage fashion and accessories.
