As a rule one of the most effective ways to change and cheer up is buying a new dress or complete wardrobe update. In recent times, the cost of new collections exceed psychological high significantly resulting dissatisfaction and disappointment. In this case, ingenuity and grandma’s chest can help. I will not go into details and nuances of fashion history, I just remind about its cyclicity. After the surface tendencies study a group of enthusiasts conducted an experiment. They found clothes of their mothers and grandmothers for the previous 10-40 years. The result was interesting!

If you can find bags or clutch from 50s-60s (most likely made of natural leather) you can use it without any doubt and little attrition just adds charm. If an accessory is seriously damaged the repair shops will help you. Cloaks and coats can be a pleasant discovery. Classic is out of time! In the deficit times clothes were kept more careful, moreover they are more qualitative than modern.

Maxi and midi dresses with a simple print or monochrome are popular in every season for several decades.

High waist midi skirts look good with modern shoes.

The emphasis on accessories! Retro-rings, pendants, bracelets, hair clips should be stored carefully and saved for children. Vintage Melchior rings with semiprecious stones are not worse than brand faceted glass in steel alloy.

Crop-tops were spread in 80-s and then sank into oblivion, mutated and came back. I want to note that top is a “dangerous” cloth: its owners have to have a perfect torso and a good taste in order not to cross the line of vulgarity.

Pantaloons came in fashion of France in XVI century. Few of them have survived since that times in their original look but a skirt-trousers became popular among fashion  in 1830 creating an alternative to classic skirts and helping cycling development among women. After that they закрепились in the cycle.

During the experiment, we faced a lack of men’s clothes. Maybe that is because of “careful” attitude to clothes or its complete absesnse. Maybe the reason is that chic man Soviet suits of thin natural wool didn’t look valuable for grandmas. Anyway we managed to collect a man set “fop» and casual option «hooligan».
