Retro is back

I heard an ad on hot 899 that retro is back. So that got me thinking, how could I incorporate some simple, retro pieces into my wardrobe this spring/summer without going overboard?

Retro is a culturally outdated or aged style, trend, mode, or fashion, from the overall post-modern past, that has since that time become functionally or superficially the norm once again. The use of “retro” style iconography and imagery interjected into post-modern art, advertising, mass media, etc. It generally implies a vintage of at least fifteen or twenty years. For example, clothing from the 1980s or 1990s could be retro. (Source: Wikipedia)

Here are some ideas under $100:

Striped Combination Dress from Zara – $59

I could see myself wearing this to work and then out for cocktails afterwards. I especially like how it is in navy instead of black and white.

Polka dot dress from Top Shop – $38

I love wearing polka dots. And at this price, you can afford to be a bit trendy!

River Island Boxy Stripe Blouse – $49.88

Go retro/mod with this blouse that can easily be paired with white pants for summer.
