The High-Waisted Look
Back in the 1920s, high-waisted shorts, pants, skirts, and bikinis were all the rage. This was to accentuate the natural figure of a woman and to showcase long legs and curves. Of course, you probably don’t need us to tell you that the high-waisted look is still super stylish today. You don’t need to look too hard to find high-waisted items in your favorite store, either.
All Tied Up
If you look at old photos from the 1940s, you might notice that women just couldn’t get enough of turning their boring button-down shirt into something much more stunning during the summer months. They would tie this bad boy into a knot at the front of their body, showcase their tanned skin, and team it up with some shorts or a skirt. This look still rocks today.
Working That Mini
When the summer months come along, you want to avoid covering up and making yourself even warmer than it already is outside. So, you might want to take a leaf out of the book from the 1960s. These guys loved nothing more than wearing a miniskirt to keep themselves cool, and there’s no reason why you can’t do this as well. Team your mini skirt with a blouse, vest, or even a crop top.
Our vintage ancestors certainly knew how to put together a look, so why not take your advice from these stylish legends?
