Vintage Dresses by Style

Vintage fancy dresses often include style elements that you’d hardly find today, and that’s excellent – what better way to stand out than to tap into the timeless retro charm? By browsing in our shop, you’ll undoubtedly find some puff sleeves – this timeless façon dates back all the way to the Renaissance. Initially, it was called the Juliet sleeve and features a large puff near the shoulder that narrows for the rest of the arm’s length – so romantic! If you seek chic, smoldering elegance, choose a vintage slip dress – they first became widely worn in the last decade of the 20th century as part of the underwear-as-outerwear trend and mainly were made from layered chiffon, polyester satins, and charmeuse, sometimes trimmed with lace. Another element you’ll notice in our second-hand fancy dresses is the halter neck. It’s believed that this particular style originated in Ancient Greece. Still, in modern fashion, it was popularized by the one and only Yves Saint Laurent – choose a vintage halter neck dress and channel that ‘60s charm!
