Inspired By Vintage Fashion: Matching Sets & Separates
- Jun 11, 2018
Now that Adored Vintage sells modern vintage inspired clothing, I think it is a good idea for me to start sharing my vintage inspirations when choosing new styles for the shop. For the summer I am ordering a few matching sets and separates and you might think "How is THAT vintage? That's just super trending right now."
Ahh.. but au contraire mon amie for this look has been around since the 1940s!
Diana Vreeland once said "the bikini is the most important thing since the atom bomb. Wear it often, wear it well." The bikini first came about in 1946 because of fabric shortage after World War 2. Of course the bikini back then looks a lot more like the separates and rompers and matching sets we have now since today some modern day bikini styles are just bits of string.
This summer I will be bringing in some cropped tops and matching high waist shorts that flare out a bit just like the ones depicted in these vintage 1940s patterns. The plus side of buying these sets is that you can wear the top and bottoms separately with other things from the shop (or what you already own)
What do you think of matching separates? Would you wear them?
