My Vintage Autumn/Winter 2011/12 Trends Part 2

Vintage Clothing Trend Report Autumn/Winter 2011/12


Here we have the second part of the hottest trends for the upcoming Autumn/Winter season...

Guilded Goth

It's dramatic. It's black. It means business. This new sexy gothic look is bound to hang around for some time. Think heavy lace and brocade in black, with gold or shimmer edging and detail. Large shoulders, corset tops, skinny trousers and ghostly silhouettes. This look is more temptress vampire than bride of Dracula so be careful not to overdo it! Dig out some of your old black pieces and mix up with some vintage lace and frills – experimentation is key!

Sixties Mod

Grab your scooter, this stunning Twiggy-esque look is all about the simple lines of the mod styles. Forget flower power, delve into 60s vintage on trend by picking plain or block colours, with the iconic a-line shape and features like dagger collars and chunky buttons. Keep dresses super short or knee length and wear with boots or tights. Invest in a 60s vintage coat or vintage cape for full on chic. A pixie crop or beehive finishes the look perfectly!

Polka Dots

The cutesy spots have returned with a bang and whether you're rockabilly or glam rock, there's always room for some polka dots in your wardrobe! A vintage tea dress is the perfect basis for an outfit but keep your eyes peeled for vintage spotty separates like silk scarves, clutch bags, stretch belts, polka dot stockings and of course spotted lace panels on gorgeous vintage frocks.

So there we have our lowdown on the fashion months ahead with a vintage clothing twist! And don't forget you can shop by trend at all year round!
