A Thing Called Fashion

The Classic Retro Combination

It’s funny how we blindly follow a set of rules when it comes to pairing two pieces of clothing together. There are times when you want to take the risk but are scared of the repercussion. The moment you pick out a piece of printed top or a bottom wear, in your head you have already registered that a print can only go well with a plain solid colour. Isn’t that true? What if you you paired two different prints together? Have you ever tried that combination?

Some time back when I was looking for something new to make me happy, I obviously went window shopping online. I saw this polka dot skirt with a frill lining at the end and wanted it hanging in my wardrobe. The issue here was, I am not a very polka dots friendly person until now. But I still decided to get it and try it out because of the shape of that skirt. When I received the skirt, I knew I had to go retro atleast for once. I decided to pair it up with another print and see how it looked. You can scroll down to see what happened next.

I personally think, the combination of a monochrome stripes top and a polka dot skirt did give me a retro vibe. Don’t you think so? Also, I tried to layer my hair like those vintage hair styles that we see in most of the black and white movie. Polka dots can never go out of fashion if styled well. I still have a Minnie Mouse toy wearing a red polka dot dress. That is where the trend started. They are age friendly, classy and voguish. Vintage fashion is trendy and fun!

Now again fashion ideas changes from person to person, someone who loves Indo-western may not like street style or someone who likes fast fashion won’t understand the beauty of vintage fashion. And then there are people like me who loves a mix of every trend. If you think print on print is too much, try adding a hint of retro print to your plain outfit. For example, a polka dot shoe, bag or a scarf. There are such adorable polka dots footwear available online.

All I would like to say is, recreate new fashion styles and share it with the world.
