2011's Spring Retro and Vintage Style!


Today's post will be on the latest spring fashion, Retro Shoujo Style and Vintage Shounen Style!

Retro Shoujo Style

1. Using airy material for spring trend~!
Materials like chiffon or lace are IN! For spring, fluffy blouse is recommended for a retro look!

2. Add in brown colour(the translation should be tea colour but it sounds weird...) items to create a vintage feel!
It's the most important point of Retro Shoujo Style! When you add in brown items, you can boost up the vintage feel. Shoes, bags and hats are most recommended!

3. If you want to be retro then patterned items are a must buy
Flower prints, polka dot prints, gingham checks and other spring patterns are the line up of this season. To get a retro girly look, start with these items!

Vintage Shounen Style

1. Wear strong colours with a retro feel!
Vintage Shounen Style matches with strong American taste colours. Whether it's huge nerdy glasses or baggy pants, keep the retro feel.

2. Preppy accessories are a must!
Glasses, mini neckties, suspenders etc. Easy and recommended!

3. Oversized clothing
Oversize clothing like borrowing clothes from a guy.

Personally I think both of the styles are cute! Retro Shoujo Style is more to girly cute while Vintage Shounen Style is more to a fun look yet the cuteness still remains.

This spring's trends are really fun! I can't wait to shop for some spring items! Haha!
