Vintage Vantage. Get Spring Runway Looks The Vintage Way

May 8, 2008 • Fashion


Carol Calacci for Second City Style Magazine

There was plenty of vintage inspiration in many of the Fall 08 RTW
lines, which gave me the idea to find the same runway looks at vintage
shops. But it’s spring right now, so I took a look back to what seems
like so long ago – the Spring 08 RTW runway.sought out more practical vintage trends that are chic this spring. Let’s face it,
there is always inspiration from the past in fashion, which is why so
many women love vintage clothing. I avoided showing you the jumpsuits
and one shouldered looks, which are great fun, but instead  Go online, check the flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops or your mother’s attic for these finds.

Yes, you will be able to buy these fashions new in the stores, but why not be authentic? Get the real deal, go green, recycle, start a collection, or just to be fashionable, shop vintage this spring! These great looks are back in again with the added bonus that you know they will never be out.

Emporio Armani Spring 08 RTW – 40s Shorts
These fuller legged and high waisted shorts are flattering and give a
more dressed-up and pulled together look than most shorts. Bally Hoo
Vintage has several selections on these not so easy to find shorts. To
complete the look, you can find a thick belt and a 3/4 sleeve crochet
knit cardigan at almost any resale shop.

1940s Play Shorts  $49

Andrew Gn Spring 08 RTW – 60s Shift
In addition to all of the floral patterns, bold graphics and stripes
were all over the runways, and can be found all over vintage shops!
Find a stripe or pattern that makes you happy. This colorful popsicle
striped shift dress looks yummy.
