Retro style clothing typically represents styles worn in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and even 1970s eras. Pin up, rockabilly and vintage are common aspects of retro styles, incorporating everything from poodle skirts to greaser girl jumpsuits to bell bottomed jeans and floral tops.
Since retro style clothing can consist of such a wide range of styles from different eras, there are plenty of looks and patterns that go along with it. Flowing ruffled skirts, poodle skirts, pencil skirts, halter tops, fitted corsets, seamed pantyhose, sky high stilettos, polka dots, leopard print and flirty play suits are just some of the styles that are often grouped into the most popular types of retro style clothing.
One of the best aspects of retro style clothing is that it is designed to enhance the natural beauty and curves of women of all ages, shapes and sizes. Whether you’re an XXS or XXL, retro style clothing will enhance your beauty rather than attempt to hide it. It takes confidence, a fierce attitude and a penchant for all things retro in order to truly pull off some of the more classic pieces, but regardless, any woman can rock retro styles in a way that suits her perfectly.
For an exciting new wardrobe transition that stands out from the crowd and shows off your personal retro style, check out these boutiques for everything fun, fashionable and retro.
Retro ladies and pin up kittens if you go nuts for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind retro-style clothing inspired by 1950s fashions then you will love the indie label Overdue from designer Tatjana Overdick.
Started in 2006 and growing day-by-day, each item is constructed with a great attention to detail and the virtual guarantee that each piece is unique.
All Overdue garments are designed as part of a series, which allow customers to put together complete, demi-coutureoutfits without searching high and low. The beautiful “Cherry Dream” Dress in tight-fitting black satin decorated with black and red embroidery plus an edging of red brocade is perfect for vampy bombshells and can be accessorized with a matching bolero and garter belt, while the rockabella pencil skirt “Magic Flowers” in embossed black satin will go perfectly with any retro top, from skull-decorated cardigans to teensy blouses or peasant shirts. With handbags, bodices, hair flowers, scarves and even glasses cases, Overdue has everything required for a total retro, rockabilly or pin up look.
A master, or rather mistress, tailor, Tatjana Overdick, always wanted to be a fashion designer and as a girl hand-made outfits for her Barbie dolls. As an adult, Overdick studied to become a seamstress then worked for over 5 years in musical theater costume design before branching out on her own. Sometimes known as Missy O, Tatjana lives in Herne but is from Dinslaken and is inspired by the unadulterated femininity and girlish charm inherent in classic 1950s styles. She believes that the little details are what make each garment she designs live up to those of her inspiration, and uses contemporary fabrics to construct her adaptations for optimal fit and comfort.
Overdue can be found at their DaWanda shop as well as on MySpace and at Wild Fifty as they develop their very own online shop. If you prefer, visit www.overdue.de, click the ‘Contact’ page and call or e-mail Tatjana Overdick directly for up-to-date information on collections and availability. Or, contact Overdue for custom designs and individual pieces based on your specifications for both men and women’s clothing, because Missy O loves to collaborate and at an average price of € 159.00 to €260.00 for a full outfit it is well worth the cost.
