Luckily all women are not created equal. We come in all shapes and sizes and have our own personalities, tastes and styles. In the last 100 years we have been celebrated and honored with a myriad of beautiful garments that can appeal to us or irritate us, depending on the woman in question. VintageTrends.com has found that no matter the woman, there is a vintage dress for you, which is why our site offers an incredible range of vintage dresses from the 1940's to the 1980's.

The shirtwaist dress was a popular style for Victorian women. However, it was Christian Dior who reinvented the design in the late 1940's in a way we still find fashionable today. Vintage shirtwaist dresses from the 1950's are a great choice for those who tend to style an outfit more daringly, due to the simplicity of the design. A vintage belt, costume jewelry and cardigan are all one needs to personalize this style of vintage dress.

In a stark contrast to Dior's “New Look” the sheath dress also became a desired trend in the 1950's. A sheath dress is cut close to the body, while darting at the waist for a dramatic silhouette. Vintage sheath dresses from the 1950's and 60's are always a good choice, as the prints and cuts come in a range of colors and sizes. Another type of dress that has literally stood the test of time is the shift dress. Worn in the Middle Ages by all women as undergarments, are now popular among women as summer dresses. The term 'sundress' was coined in the 1960's and was then, as well as now, a very coveted style of vintage dress. Generally a sundress is made of natural and lightweight material and intended to be comfortable in warm weather and yet appropriate for any type of activity.

Another style of vintage dress born in the 60's is the maxi dress. Bohemian and hippie women enjoyed a maxi dress, as it was an interpretation of a more ethnic style dress, which was fashionable at the time. Then began the 1970's – The era of the wrap dress. Designer Diane Von Furstenberg designed the very first wrap dress, which appealed to both the girls who loved disco and the girls who hated disco. DVF still includes wrap dresses in her collections, no doubt pulling from her own archive of vintage dresses, as they are a very sexy and flattering style.

The cocktail dress dates back to the 1920's, a time when women had thrown everything their mother's had told them about fashion out the window. A cocktail dress was created for women to enjoy nightlife, without spending hours getting ready. While the silhouettes of vintage cocktail dresses may all be different – the spirit remains the same.

And of course, no conversation about vintage dresses would be complete without the notable little black dress. A phrase coined in the 1920's as a result of the simplistic aesthetic of Coco Chanel. A woman can spend as little or as much as she pleases on a chic little black dress and have the same result, effortlessly classic in moments.
