Question ID# - 55
The theme for our school social is "Retro". I have no idea what to wear. Any ideas?
First of all, think of a particular fashion look or past era that you always liked and identified with. Get inspiration from from your favorite period movie or vintage magazines and photos. Next, raid your mother's closet or go to your local thrift shop and look for retro clothes that fit your figure and you feel comfortable wearing. Depending on what you find within your budget, you can either go in full costume or just add a retro-touch to your outfit with accessories like a funky 50s style hat or 20s flapper beads.
