A quick look on your favourite search engine will yield loads of vintage shops that stock some fantastic vintage and retro clothes from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Most of these shops will have catergories for you to pick out your favourite era or decade.
Some people like the MOD dresses of the 60s while others base their look on big, flowly maxi dresses of the 1970s – you can even mix and match to create that unqiue look.
Every year modern fashion houses set the the trends for the high street – but the fact is that if you look carefully all these designs are based on famous designs of years gone by.
