Remember last week’s post about shopping retro on Etsy? The focus was jewelry, purses and art. Today we’re 100% dedicated to fashion, and we’re especially drawn to pieces featuring bold colors and shapes. Enjoy the vivid hues and forms that follow, and be sure the check out the links for more details…
We start by turning our attention to the top of the post, where an ’80s Nautical Sweater from Etsy shop Luncheonette grabs our attention with its bright graphic pattern in beachy shades of blue.
Below we see a 1980s Oversized Graphic Tee from Etsy shop Bamble Vintage. Perfect for summer, this piece gives you plenty of room to live and breathe, which makes it perfect for accentuating with a belt. And that rad print….should you frame it or wear it?!
Ready for another fab find from Bamble Vintage? Check out the 1980s Bold Abstract Pattern Knit Top below. From the L’ULTIMA Designer Collection, this mixed knit design features vibrant colors such as red, yellow and orange. Plus, you’ve gotta love that shallow batwing effect:
Half sleeves and a fitted waist are two reasons to admire this ’80s New Wave Avant Garde Sweater from Etsy shop DalAtlanta. Another reason: the teal forest green color, which is oh so flattering:
Ah, the ’80s–a decade that produced its share of silk blouses! Take them to another level with just the right slimming skirt. And a geometric pair of earrings, of course! The Cropped Abstract ’80s Blouse from Etsy shop Hatchet & Dagger below is hard to ignore. We love it, and we love the description that accompanies it even more:
“The fit of this blouse is absolute perfection. It is shorter in the front like a mullet cut frock but not so extreme. Mullet cuts are too extreme.” Ha!
Hopefully today’s post got you thinking about the colorful possibilities of spring fashion finds, especially when the 1980s are involved. Happy Wednesday!
