As global fashion weeks have become an ever-important breeding ground for the dissemination of viral trends, the same events have witnessed a rise in vintage-inspired dress that was most notable on S/S 2014 streets. ’50s frocks and full, gathered skirts have reclaimed their place of prominence in women’s wardrobes, as has a trend for ’60s mini-shifts and ’60s-does-’20s drop-waisted styles. The ongoing fascination with the match set continues on both runways and streets; ’70s tunic sets and quirky jumpsuits à la Twiggy resurfaced as well.
