Trying Out Different Decades

You may have recalled me mentioning once or twice about the benefits of trying out different decades of fashion to help you find the one that you may enjoy the most. When it comes down to it I think its a blast to try them all out!Why not? That is the beauty of vintage. It's fun and so beautiful to dress up in.

For some discovering the world of vintage or trying to find their own sense of style, it may seem like an overwhelming process. But to diminish the stress of finding out what you love the most, try them all out! Feel free to have a good time exploring various decades. Take the time and see what you love and feel good in. You don't necessarily have to stick with any one decade but I find that it make it easier when building your wardrobe.

As you can see from the photos below I have played around with the 1900's to the 1960's. Technically I also played around with the 1970's back in the 1990's. Gee, say that ten times fast! I used to wear bell bottoms and polyester tops. That was so much fun to do. I really had a blast especially since 1990's fashion wasn't really my thing.

Have you tried out different decades of fashion before? Did it help you focus on building your wardrobe?

  1. You look just beautiful in all these outfits and spot on with the decades. I think this is a really fantastic piece of advice and encouragement for people new to the idea of a vintage wardrobe - I know I certainly wouldn't of thought of it - and it really is lots of fun!

  3. That's such great advice! Even if one has established the decades they love/want to dress from most of the time, there's no rules against dabbling in others at least once in a while. Every now and then for example, I love to channel a belle belle epoque/art art nouveau vibe or (jumping ahead nearly a century) rock some seriously 70s inspired attire.

  4. I thought I'd just mostly wear 50's clothing when I started building my vintage/vintage inspired wardrobe but I'm getting really into the 40's as well. I like some early 60's stuff but mostly 40's-50's.

  5. I love exploring all kinds of looks, but I don't do it enough! Especially when it comes to hair and make-up, which I'm a total novice with!

    It's so interesting how each of these eras brings out something different in you! The soft 20s and 30s photos are so lovely, but I love how the bright colours suit you in the 40s one too!
