How to wear Vintage Sheer Dresses
Feminine & Delicate – I think a retro heel and hat is magical with a sheer dress – you can evoke the 1930s while wearing a dress from the 70s and 80s.
Sheer means its time to find a full slip or half slip and camisole. Jaunty & Carefree – It would also be cute to wear ankle boots or tall boots to toughen the look up a bit.
For my height I think it is better to do a dainty shoe, but those with height could pull off a boot.
While I may delve into other eras and certainly love discovering and learning about every era of fashion history, I will always think of the 1970s as the foundation on which I build my vintage fashion self. That is where it all started, as when I first began wearing vintage the 1970s was the most accessible – it was in style in the 90s (not particularly in style where I was living at the time, but I was more of a trend setter anyway) and I could find these pieces easily as they were what my aunts and mother had. My Etsy shop is bursting with the 70s – in particular bursting with the romantic pieces. Gunne Sax, Candi Jones, Peggy Barker, prairie dress, dresses harking back to the Edwardian and Victorian eras. The 70s was a great time for looking back – I have had some really neat 70s does 40s and 70s does 50s also. Anyway, searching for 1970s in my shop I find around 400 items so there is likely something for everyone! The dresses I have pictured are a bit on the formal side but there are of course more casual cotton dresses also in simpler styles.
