Although most vintage lovers tend to mix and match periods and styles to create a look that's unique, we are often drawn to one decade or another. Actually I'm not so much interested in everyone's favourite fashion era as I am intrigued by your reasons for favouring a specific period. Do you choose styles from a certain time because they're the most flattering to your body type? Does a particular era reflect your personality? Or perhaps you simply appreciate the lines of the clothes from that time?
I tend to gravitate towards the late 30s to mid 40s. I generally find these styles the most wearable - knee-length slightly flared dresses are both flattering and more current than the voluminous mid-calf length skirts of Dior's New Look. Not to mention less obviously vintage, for when I don't actually want to look like I'm in fancy dress. But of course I do love the glamour of the 50s - who doesn't?
