What does a retro dress look like & Fancy Friday linkup

retro look dress with long cardigan

Remember when I bought a retro look dress a while ago. And that I really didn’t like it at all? I did wear it only with for that shoot and never again.

I really like the retro style, but this dress didn’t suit me at all. Just too short, or maybe the colors. I don’t know but I didn’t feel myself in it at all. Now I show you a retro look dress again, but I feel very good in this one. And what the difference is, I don’t know. Probably because it is slightly longer. This retro look dress is second-hand and is from King Louie, a brand of which I buy many pre-loved dresses. Great fit, excellent quality and beautiful prints and colors. This is not a sponsored post, if only. I’m just a fan of this brand.

Why is this a retro look dress

The print appealed to me the most, somewhat psychedelically. You know, when you have a mushroom to many…..just kidding, I really wouldn’t know! But you probably understand what kind of print I mean. Well that psychedelic comes from the 70s and that is retro again. Going back to a certain time to design new, for example, fashion. That is what we call retro.

How I wear my retro look dress

It was a no brainer to wear this dress with a long cardigan and well fitted boots. That, for me, gives this look a 70s feel. A long necklace to break the print a bit and a few plastic brown bracelets. These dresses are so easy to wear, so stretchy and so easy to style. And the fit is so perfect. Love to wear it with sandals too. That is the only downside of summer, that I can’t wear boots!

    Nancy, I love the retro style. And yes, I GET the one mushroom too many…! Haha! We of a certain era know ALL about that. And this look is very reminiscent. It looks great with the neutral boots and sweater, too.

    Have a lovely Easter weekend,

    I’ve found that with dresses it’s more the feeling they give you when you wear them, rather than what they look like! This one looks great Nancy particularly with the long cardi.

    I can see why you love this dress Nancy!! And I rechecked out the other one you haven’t worn. I have a shirt dress that’s a little too short, and I tend to wear it more as a duster. It just feels better that way!!

    It’s funny how your body language just shows how happy you are with this dress compared to the other retro one you have shown on your blog. I just love how you have combined it with your lovely long cardigan and these cool boots. I just adore the necklace! Wishing you a sunny Easter weekend! Love, Lieske

    Isn’t it funny how just a few inches can make such a huge difference with a dress? I’m at the point where my hemlines are getting much lower, and I’m totally ok with that. It’s all about feeling comfortableโ€”and you definitely look like you feel great in this dress!

      Yes it does, if this dress would be a bit shorter, then I wouldn’t love it as much as I do now.

  18. 19th April 2019 / 18:22

    This retro style dress really suits you very well, Nancy! I agree it’s more you than the other dress. The minute I saw the dress I knew it was King Louie! I have a KL dress in a similar style and print, but with different colours. Must dig it out and wear it again. I love how you styled it with those boots! I’m forever wearing boots, if not long boots, then ankle boots, and every year I’ve to make a switch in my head when Summer rolls along and I can’t wear them anymore … xxx

    I know what you mean about feeling good in one dress and not in another for whatever reason. The long cardigan looks great with it and I’m sure it will look good with sandals.
