Embracing Vintage Styles

We love mixing vintage and modern styles at Joe Browns, but if you’re aiming for a certain era, see our tips on nailing the fashion of some of the most popular decades.

How do I dress in a fifties style?

The fabulous fifties are a perfect decade to draw fashion inspiration from. Hourglass silhouettes were all the rage in this era, which can be easily created with a flared vintage dressor a poodle skirt and nipping in the waist with a belt.


For a sleeker silhouette, elegant pencil skirts and figure-hugging vintage dresses are staples of fifties fashion. Then, in terms of pattern, fun polka dots and classic gingham checks were immensely popular. 


Accessories were also key in the fifties. A scarf could be worn knotted at the neck or over the head knotted at the chin for the perfect finishing touch.

How do I dress in a sixties style?

The swinging sixties were the decade of all things mini! Remarkable mini skirts and mini dresses were beloved in this period. Pair with coloured tights to truly capture spectacular sixties style. Then, add a classic polo neck to warm up the look for winter.


If you’re not keen on the mini look, pastel pant suits are another sixties outfit to try. A chic blazer with trousers or a skirt exudes effortless style.

How do I dress in a 70s style?

The seventies were a gorgeous era, particularly for boho styles. This decade was all about maxi dresses, including free-spirited bohemian gowns and prairie dresses. Pair a flowing boho dress with an attention-grabbing poncho to channel Stevie Nicks chic. 


If maxi dresses aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other stunning seventies styles to try. Wrap vintage dresses are a perfect seventies staple, or try flared or bell-bottom trousers with a blouse.
