I’ve been mildly obsessed with the Fall/Winter 2013 fashion week coverage that has been all over the internet lately. Being as vintage-minded as I am, I couldn’t help but notice a ton of mid-century fashion inspiration this season. From the drowned Hitchcock-heroines at Prada, to the Grace Kelly-classic at Calvin Klein, there was a ton of 1950’s revival going on.
And it makes sense! The 1950’s silhouettes are incredibly classic- ladylike, feminine, and typically flattering. The defined waist, flared skirt, and modest lengths of the 1950’s showed up again and again during fashion week. Where modern designers made things interesting was in regards to the fabric; alligator, leather, texture, and metallics all helped liven up these classic, “New Look” silhouettes. Below, a few of my favorites.
