By far one of the most popular and desirable items of vintage clothing is the vintage party dress. Whether it is for the high school prom, hot date, music festival or party of the year, vintage party dresses are always there for you to choose! So, what actually belongs to the vintage category? Or in another word, which style do you prefer and will look great on you? I would like to recommend some basic styles of vintage range below.
As the name implies, the empire dress has a higher waistline which usually begins just beneath the bust. This dress is always teamed with a long, full skirt which flows straight from the waistline. The empire style is perfect for those who have a bottom-heavy figure or thick waist as it skims and hides the bottom half.
This body-fitting dress hugs your curves in all the right places and outlines the beautiful lines of your body. Sheath dress is especially gorgeous on the women who have the tall and balanced figure, for it enhance the charm and grace.
If you want to get a princess or fairlady look, the ball gown is definitely the best choice for you. It is highly elegant and always dramatic. The form-fitted bodice with a magic skirt flatters most figure types and is especially suitable for disguising large hips and thighs.
The short/mini dress has seen a real resurgence in the past few years. Short and sexy, the strapless version of this dress is probably the most popular of all the vintage party dresses, often referred to as the vintage prom dress.
Although it's still at the height of fashion, the tea dress is far from new to the fashion dictionary. Regardless of many designers attempting to revolutionize this style of frock, nothing compares to the historical, classic style of a vintage tea dress.
This style of dress is hemmed long at the back (at the ankles or to the floor) and just above the knees at the front. This is a unique, sexy party dress which is perfect for showing off long legs with its glam and pleasant look.
