Vintage Fashion and Style Guides

The 20th Century provides us with a wealth of inspiration, each decade experimenting with different styles, cuts and fabrics. With the two world wars resulting in so much social change for women, fashion, of course, reflected this.

Most of us have a favourite decade...the chic drop waist styles of the 1920s, the wilowy and superbly cut 1930s dresses, the draping and clever cutting of the 1940s, the fabulous glamour of the 1950s or the chic sophhistication of the early 60s.

Whatever your leanings - check out our style guides to help you find your favourite decade...
