Unique Vintage: 10 Things Not To Miss

Hey, Good Lookin’!

“What you got cookin’?” A want for a fabulously vintage wardrobe, apparently!

Whether you have been inspired by movies or tv shows like Mad Men, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Crown, or Wanda Vision, you have found yourself loving the fashion known from the 1950s. Flirtatious necklines, tight waists, voluminous skirts, little heels, pearl necklaces, and red lips are just some of the iconic features of the time. So! For head-to-toe fashion, here are 10 must-have items not to miss from Unique Vintage:


1. Red Floral Fascinator

After spending a decent amount of time sculpting your beautifully vintage hairstyle, here is the cherry on top! This romantically red, floral fascinator is the perfect finishing touch to your more formal fashions of the night. Crafted in sturdy wool, it is secured by hidden twin combs and an elastic cord, and delicately detailed with black beads and a veil. With this, there is no mistaking your vintage silhouette.


2. Oversized Cat Eye Sunglasses

Who doesn’t love a good cat-eye? Well, instead of a quick wing of eyeliner, let us have the more permanent look of these oversized sunglasses! These classic black frames are perfect for vintage and modern outfits alike, soon to be a staple of your capsule wardrobe whether you need them for a day at the beach or for the all-American road trip. The molded nose pads and curved arms provide secure and comfortable wear while the dark-tinted lens provides UV 400 protection.


3. Ruffled Petticoat

Tiny waist but poofy skirt? You are going to need a petticoat! Though the one above is in champagne, Unique Vintage offers a variety of colors and a few different styles – such as white and black and made out of tulle and crinoline. Personally, though, I would go with the champagne because it is close to nude and therefore can go under almost all dresses and skirts. Perfect for any time and all the time, a petticoat is a vintage fashion must-have.


4. Little Black Dress

Every girl needs a LBD. Made famous by Coco Chanel, the “little black dress” has become a woman’s staple, a fashion perfect for every occasion. This one in particular is modeled after a 1950’s swing dress, with a beautifully subtle design. Featuring a modest neckline and sleeveless silhouette, soft pleats on the bust provide an eye-catching accent. Then, the arched banded waist is cinched with a back zipper while the sweeping swing skirt drops to a straight hem at the knees. And don’t forget that petticoat to add that volume! Whether you are going to a job interview, attending a funeral, going on a fancy date, or walking around Paris, this dress is meant for you.


5. Skirt With Pockets

If the suspenders aren’t your style, you are in luck! Unique Vintage has a crazy amount of options when it comes to skirts and dresses with pockets. ‘Cause, you doesn’t love pockets? The one above is in a brilliant red that matches the fascinator and handbag of this list and will match your brilliantly bold and vintage red lipstick. The skirt has a high-waist with adjustable suspender straps for a dash of retro fashion, while the paneled skirt provides a delightful hourglass as the swing silhouette dances to your knees. Available in other colors and sizes, all you will need is a petticoat and you are good to go!


6. Halter Top

As the weather gets warmer, Unique Vintage will roll out the new additions, including the Sandra Top in many different colors. The Sandra Top has been made famous by vintage Instagramers and YouTubers alike, one of the vintage wardrobe must-haves in the modern era. With a subtle sweetheart neckline, there is a criss-cross detail of the straps to add a pin-up flare. Tucked or untucked, with a skirt or pants, you will be ready to be dapper all day at the Disney parks, at a pool-side cabana, or date-night with your love.


7. 1950’s Jeans

Just as every girl needs a Little Black Dress, every girl needs the perfect pair of jeans. High-waisted in blue denim, these fashion jeans are designed with the perfectly vintage silhouette in mind. These skinny jeans have a button closure and modern pockets, they are a fantastic match to little black heels or cuffed with white sneakers. Wearable for a special occasion or for every day, this is a purchase you will never regret.

A stunning pair of heels from Unique Vintage, the Astaire Pumps are crafted in gorgeous black leather and have a dramatic 4-inch lift. A darling rounded toe is topped by an adjustable t-strap to keep you feeling vintage, while the cushioned insole provides modern, all-day comfort. With tights or without, they will compliment any vintage-inspired dress, skirt, or pants you may have.


9. Kiss-Lock Handbag

What look wouldn’t be complete without a gorgeous purse? With the kiss-lock closure, this feminine yet bold handbag is the way to go! Matching red to the fascinator and skirt on the list, it will perfectly pair with red lipstick. The top handle and the removable (and adjustable) shoulder strap provide a versatile carry. The dotted fashion interior is outfitted with two inner slip pockets and an inner zipper pocket while an outer zipper pocket keeps you organized.


10. Vintage Onepiece

Available in sizes X-Small to 5X, this sophisticated style comes in various colors and prints.
