Similar to that feeling of sifting through old photographs, designers across the globe were hit with a nostalgic wave this season. An antique air lingered, despite fashion’s penchant to be plugged in to the tech-advanced future. Now, ruffles are relevant and chunky knits from Chloé have a modernity about them. A Rodarte cuff and ring combination could have been passed down through generations and Rosie Assoulin flares are bare at the knee, but finished off with two prim bows. Think of this approach to dressing as if stepping into a well-curated vintage store. The beauty of this thrift-inspired look is that it has a timeless air, but in the most romantic of ways.
