Vintage Fashion Trends: Boho rhapsody



Grab your head scarves, feathers and faux furs. Add a touch of colour clashing and bask in a little retrospective fashion.

Boho chic is back in vogue, but the classic 1970s trend has been remodelled with a bit of a 90s twist to give the soft ladylike lines an edgier, more tailored appearance.

It is the perfect trend to have a play with as it incorporates the most flamboyant elements of each look.

If fashion designer Ossie Clark and early 90s Versace had a love child, the fruit of that marriage would be this trend.

It is rich and decadent, soft and floaty, with layered fabric in bold jewel colours all topped off with lashings of accessories.



Build up the look around one statement piece, be that a dress or fabulous fitted trousers, introduce one print anywhere, from psychedelic to snakeskin, and create your own style around it.

When dressing in deep jewel tones like purple and moss green don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour, such as coral, to break it up. Wearing a patterned shirt underneath will give a nod to the 90s and keep the look feeling fresh. Traditionally, boho chic dressing is all about the movement of material. Here, you still want to achieve an element of fluidity in what you are wearing but teaming a tight-fitted skirt with a floaty shirt with give you the contrast you need to make the look current.

Maxi dresses are the definition of bohemian dressing. You can go all out with a maxi by finding one with a bold print, but keeping it simple and sticking to one colour will guarantee the garment’s longevity.

It is the accessories with this look that keeps it on trend. Place a fur gillet over the cascading fabrics and introduce a head scarf with an oversized clutch and you’ll be working it.

Snakeskin is much easier to wear than you might anticipate, particularly when it’s on a dress that is exquisitely cut. Find one in a classic wrap shape and it will flatter all figures. The earthy tones of the print work well with purples and gold so have fun adding accessories to it.

Leather instantly rocks up any look, so pairing it with print is perfect if you are trying to tick the 70s and 90s box correctly. Throw a bright coloured blazer over the top of the outfit to keep it fresh looking and pull the textures together.

1940s Vintage Blouses


1940 Blouses, image source: vintagebobbin.blogspot.com

For women, fashions in the 1940's were a time of practical comfort and simple elegance. War rationing limited fabric choices and designs but even after the war the styles didn't change much. Here is a quick overview of common fashion designs in the 1940's.

1940's women wore either dresses, two piece suits, skirts and blouses or occasionally pants. The dress was shaped like an hour glass. The shoulders were wide and padded, narrowed down the bodice to a tight waist and then flared out moderately to an A-line skirt ending at the low knee. This was the shape of the decade. Designs were simple and uncluttered with fancy trims or decorations. Colors were earthy in the early 40's and bright and pattered in the late 40's.

Two Piece suits were very popular in the 1940's. The skirt was A -line with minimal pleating and centered around the high waist (above the bellybutton.) The Suit jacket was shaped like a dress, with two or three big buttons down the front, square shoulders, and fitted at the waist. The bolero jacket was another jacket variation worn over a blouse.

Blouses had padded shoulders, puffy loose sleeves, and they tapered at the wrist for long sleeves and ended just above the elbow for shorter sleeves. They could be plain light colors or fun striped patterns. Many women knit their own blouses and sweaters.

With clothing being plain the accessories were big, colorful, bold and vibrant with patterns and textures. "Costume Jewelry" was all the rage with women along with fun plastic clutch purses. Hats were either small and decorated or large and simple, many with veils that hung over the face and underneath the chin. Shoes were plain, "chunky,"pumps, wedges or oxfords. Even sandals took on a similar heavy look.

This is 1940's fashion in a nut shell. Visit this site to learn more about 1940's fashions, with pictures, and shopping advice for men and women.
