Summer is here and do you know one of the latest trends to hit the market? It’s a summer vintage dress. The vintage style is back with a bang and the summer season of 2011 has embraced it with open arms. Long flowing materials reminiscent of the 60s, 70s and 80s are becoming an amazing way to win a chic and elegant look while still remaining trendy. A vintage dress combines the gracefulness of the past with the zing of the present. They make for excellent evening wear be it an office party or one held by your friends and suit a wide range of women. The vintage dress looks gorgeous on older women who are not comfortable with today’s styles.
Vintage dresses however do not come cheap. You could look out for an original at a thrift store but would then have to battle age old material and probably irremovable stains. Another option is to make a brand new dress for yourself on the basis of a vintage pattern. These are available in several boutiques and department stores. Sadly, they also cost an arm and a leg. A great place to purchase your vintage dress is online. The internet is filled with clothing websites and online apparel stores. Most of these websites custom make dresses to your exact proportions and the best part is that they are almost always cheaper. You can browse through a huge array of vintage dresses right from the comfort of your own home. No more pesky sales people.
