1960s Fashion with Soul

get-on-up-movie-1960s Did you catch "Get on Up," the James Brown bio movie? The reviews of the slightly abstract film have been mixed, but I really enjoyed it. See it if you are a fan of soul music, and want to see a creative exploration of James Brown's evolution and influence from gospel to funk. "Get on Up" had great acting, and lots of amazing vintage American fashion - from the early 1950s to the powerful styles of the 1970s.  Costume designer Sharen Davis knows retro well - she also worked on soul movie favorites "Dreamgirls" and "Ray." James Brown was known in part for his bold style, but you don't have to throw on a gold cape to recreate some of the awesome looks from this era. james-brown-1960s If you want a retro look with power, Heart of Haute has 1960s styles with big payback. Try our Jenni Dress with puffed and swinging bell sleeves - go go boots and backup dancer moves unfortunately not included. Our Carina Dress has a more structured 1960s shape, and comes in two strong optic prints. You can find the same super bad prints on our Coco Skirt. Our Doreen Dress is another bold 1960s shape - perfect on stage or for dancing to records at home! Don't pay too big of a cost to be the boss - get an American made retro look for less than $100 from Heart of Haute.

Retro Beatnik Style with Heart of Haute

Tiki Oasis is one of the biggest and best-known tiki weekenders in America. Every year they have a vintage-appropriate a theme, and in 2014 it was Beatniks. Even if you didn't make it to Tiki Oasis, you can still dig this crazy retro style with Heart of Haute.

Beatniks was the nickname given to those who participated in the subculture based around the Beat Generation, a postwar movement in art and literature. Author Jack Kerouac coined the term Beat Generation in 1948 as a way to describe the new anti-materialistic counter culture groups that were forming around the country. Like most subcultures, it eventually became a stereotype and Halloween costume joke, but not before inspiring many great artists, musicians and writers.

Shag beatnik style

Beatnik style for women might not look that transgressive or exciting to us today, but try to remember what mainstream style was like in the late 1940s and early 1950s. For women, it was full skirts, elaborate details, heavily styled hair and makeup - overall extremely feminine. In contrast to this, the beatnik girl's simple hair, androgynous black and stripes, and flat shoes were very rebellious. If you want to work this lesser-known 1950s style, we have the groovy knits and dark shades that you need, beret not included!

Try our classic Super Spy Dress, the Spy Top, or Trixie top. Put on some iconographic beatnik stripes with our Tara top,  Ella Top, Janie Top, or our Cropped Cardigan.  Try the Sassy Skirt in black for a sleek, daring look - with no frills! Beat dullsville and stay cool with Heart of Haute!

First Impression Friday - the Alisa Dress

First Impression Fridays - the Alisa Dress Welcome to the debut of First Impression Fridays! This FIF is on one of our newest dress styles - the Alisa Dress!  This dress is similar to the Aimee Dress, with longer sleeves added to it. Personally I thought this dress wouldn't fit me well because I'm always worried about my arms fitting into long sleeved garments with little stretch - but this dress didn't let me down!  It fits and flatters without being too baggy or too tight in the sleeves, and I just love the sweetheart neckline. [caption id="attachment_2141" align="alignright" width="214"]First Impression Fridays - the Alisa Dress The Alisa Dress in Olive Matrix[/caption] Another way this dress flatters any body type is the a-line skirt and included tie belt.  It cinches the waist in just the perfect way! [caption id="attachment_2143" align="alignright" width="201"]first impression friday - the alisa dress Dinah DeRosa in the Alisa Dress in Olive Matrix / Photo by Mandie Bee[/caption] I know this dress, just like our Mitzi Dress, will be just perfect for the cooler climates or for winter time.  However the Alisa is ever so slightly less modest than the Mitzi, which is fine by me! So far this dress is only available in Olive Matrix, but if you wanna try out the Alisa for yourself, we'll be happy to make you a custom one in any print you like, just send us an email at orders@heartofhaute.com or call us to order via phone at (909) 599-0715. What do you think, honeys?  Do you long for an Alisa of your own?
