Do you love vintage fashion? These retro-inspired outfits will make you feel like a pretty pin-up girl.

As much as everyone loves nostalgia (hello #ThrowbackThursday), we are always searching for what is new and what is next in fashion. However, sometimes it is good to take inspiration from the past. Kristen Stewart was photographed on the set of the new Woody Allen movie in a retro outfit. It was very cute, chic, and nothing like what Kristen normally wears, but it looked so good on her. Even if you’re not a lover of vintage, you’ll probably consider adding a cropped tie-front blouse to your wardrobe after seeing it.

Get inspired to try a retro look with these five outfits:

1. Retro Polka Dots
