Vintage Styles Making a Comeback

Vintage Styles Making a Comeback

Look Retro-Chic in 2019!

June 28, 2019 By Chealsea Hunt

At first glance, you may think the fashion world is all about “what’s new.” But in truth, the industry often takes cues from the past. Once a style is introduced and fades from popularity, it almost always comes back again – sometimes years or even decades later. This has been especially true in 2018 and 2019! This year’s top designers, bloggers, editors, and influencers have all embraced retro styles and found cool ways to make them fresh again!

SAS works with some of the best influencers, and in recent months they’ve paired our shoes with some incredible throwback styles. Take a look and get inspired to update your wardrobe with retro-chic fashion!

Head Scarves and Print Mixing

Featuring SAS Scenic

SAS Scenic Ballet Flat Retro Style

This fantastic look by Keiko Lynn includes two great throwback fashion trends!

Her vintage head scarf is reminiscent of looks first popularized in the 1960’s. Stars like Audrey Hepburn frequently rocked this accessory. If you want to try a scarf yourself, Keiko Lynn has a great tutorial on her blog.

You’ll notice she also opted for a bold patterned scarf and paired it with another print. Print mixing was big in the 60’s and 70s, and I’m excited to say it’s back in style today!

When mixing prints, it’s important not to go overboard. Finishing off the look with a simple, elegant shoe in a solid color to accentuate one print is a fantastic choice! This specific ensemble looks great paired with Scenic in scarlett red. These stunning ballet flats go with the colors in the scarf and compliment the bright jewel tone of her dress without going overboard on patterns!

Chunky Sneakers

Featuring SAS Tour Mesh

SAS Tour Mesh Retro Style

The best 90’s fashion trends are back, and comfortable style is in! That’s why we’re seeing the return of the chunky sneakers!

This trend has been featured on runways by designers including Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and Prada in the last year. Bella Hadid even paired this shoe style with her suit on the red carpet.

Chunky sneakers look great with jeans, athleisure wear (another great style that’s made a comeback), dresses, and skirts.

Style influencer Irina looked amazing in her Tour Mesh chunky sneakers! She kept her look feminine by pairing the shoes with a lacey dress and opting for a white and crème color pallet, while her oversized denim jacket and large sunglasses added a very 90’s edge.

Stripes, Corduroy, and Stockings

SAS Gretchen Retro Style

This striped shirt and corduroy skirt combo would give off slight throwback vibes on their own, but style influencer Chee also opted for the 70’s inspired thigh-high stockings and booties!

She knew exactly how to style her Gretchen boots to give them a super cute, retro vibe perfect for today’s fashion world!

Loose Shirts and Block Heels

Featuring SAS Lena

SAS Lena Retro Style

The last decade has been ruled by tight clothing, but loose fitting “boyfriend t-shirts” from the 90’s are back in a big way!

This style is incredibly versatile. You can keep it casual with jeans or leggings and sneakers. Or you can dress it up like the lovely Janice has done with a pair of equally retro-chic block heels!

Lena is a fantastic Mary Jane style shoe that offers support and cushioning. This style throws it all the way back to the 40’s era of starlets like Rita Hayworth and Lana Turner, and it instantly adds a classic elegance to this look.

Overalls are back and super versatile! This style can be country-chic or glamorous. It all depends on the way you accessorize and what shirt you wear with it.
