Retro Looks In The Modern World: Caprices

As much as the modern fashion world looks forward it also continually looks back in time. Here we explore Retro Looks in the Modern World.

The 70's does '40's is well represented in this fashion spread from Grazia France-September 2013. I love that mixture and this spread keeps it girly and spirited.

Winter Fashion By Decade- 1940's

We're still getting bombarded with snow and freezing temps here in the Northeast and most of the US. Let's have a look at some fabulous winter fashion from the Forties to keep us inspired! If you have been following this Fashionable History series, you've already seen some amazing winter fashion from the 1920's and 1930's.

These smart ladies have fur lined coats and berets. I really love this classic look.

Sometimes though, we need to up the glamour factor. Fur chubbies became popular, especially those wide shoulders and sleeves.

I want to look like this when I go ice skating.

I love this look. Knitted items like this were very popular, especially with complete matching sets including hats, muffs, and purses. 

Can we discuss these boots? This lady has it all- large fur muff, caplet with a hood, and a wool suit dress suit. Bring on the snow!

I love the rolled faux bags and make-up in this Forties inspired editorial from the Spring 2012 issue of Canada's Dress to Kill Magazine.
