If you feel like you’re looking at a time warp of the 1970s this fall, you’re almost right. Knits – chunky and smooth – in nostalgic prints take on new life with modern colors and fabrics. Myriad sweaters graced the runways during the August 2014 Atlanta Apparel Market, providing cuts and lengths to fit any size customer.
Shawl collars and wraps. Long and short vests. Sweaters mixed with cotton and denim. There’s a wealth of possibilities for layering and single wear.
Smooth knits, waffle weaves, intricate needlework, fringe create fabulous textures in cottons, wools and silks. Detailing such as toggles, metal clips, leather accents and fun buttons add distinct touches to already creative, interesting pieces.
The revamped vintage looks appeal to consumers of all ages. Teens embrace the retro looks while more mature ladies love being both comfortable and stylish. Check out all the contemporary versions of the classics at Atlanta Apparel.
