Strong prints and bold textural fabrics are always a great way for designers to inject some obvious vintage inspiration into their pieces, but these can often be the choices that are hardest to wear in clothing. Using both those things in an easy to wear statement piece, this Leopard Joanie Handbag from Fred Flare has tons of retro charm.
The trend for boyfriend cuts in womens fashion of late has brought a wealth of eighties influence, especially in outerwear pieces. This Red Hot Boyfriend Blazer from Fred Flare is an ideal choice for 80s lovers, providing that retro oversized look.
The dominance of oversized shapes on the sunglasses market of recent years appears to be shifting, but there's always a retro element for designers to look to. This pair of Green Wendy Sunglasses from Fred Flare offer an immediate vintage look without opting for clichés.
It's often tempting to shy away from bold colours when buying a heavy coat, opting for neutrals to wear with everything. For truly vintage-inspired looks, however, an injection of the right colour palette can be the most effective choice. This Double Breasted Plaid Coat by designers Tulle is anything but dull, yet still manages to keep an edge of classic design.
The use of kitschy logos and prints in 50s revivalist fashion can be hard to pull off as the focus of any outfit, but including these designs can be easy with the use of the right accessories. These Day Of The Dead Earrings from Fred Flare are an ideal choice for lovers of psychobilly styles.
Using designs inspired by the Mexican Dia De Los Muertos, the skull and floral designs create a small piece that edgy kitsch that really makes the psychobilly and more extreme rockabilly aesthetics come to life. The studs come in a pack of three pairs to mix and match.
They're available now from Fred Flare for $16.
The warmer weather can often mean that fitted fashion is the last thing you'll want to wear during the day. The stylish and practical solution is all in the fabric choice, however, as shown in this Plum Flower Dress by Fred Flare.
Taking a structured shape inspired by fifties daywear, the use of a light fabric and slightly loosened fit means this won't be as restrictive as many retro reproduction pieces. The plum floral fabric is a nod to the Hawaiin tropical influence found in American fashion at the time, too.
