Mid-Summer Trends

Summer seems to be flying by and as we approach mid-July we here at Miskabelle are checking out the trends and making sure we have vintage versions of our favorites in stock.  Here are the top 5 trends (based on some celeb-stalking, fashion blog-following, website-browsing, and magazine-perusing) we are digging so far this summer...

1. Maxi Skirts....So excited that these forgiving skirts are making their way back in fashion!  We have a few in our shop right now, but this black tie waist one is a favorite because it can easily be taken from day to night with the right accessories and a pair of strappy metallic sandals (and its similarity to the one pictured here on MK is uncanny!).  miskabelle vintage black tie waist maxi skirt, $28

2.  Cross Body Satchels....I am definitely one of those gals who carries everything but the kitchen sink in her purse, but I love a mini cross body bag to carry along at festivals/amusement parks/concerts in the summer.  You can only fit the essentials but it is a amazing to be hands-free...and I love that these bags can almost replace a necklace as an accessory.  miskabelle vintage red and brown leather cross body bag, $18

3.  Print/Harem Pants.... Certainly not the easiest of styles to pull off, but these high waisted, peg-leg pants are super on trend right now.  For the even braver fashionista, we love them in a fun print (of course our celeb inspiration here is Chloe Sevigny--the bravest of the brave fashionistas).  miskabelle fuschia tropical floral harem pants, $30
4.  Panama Hat... I have always been a hat-lover.  My earliest hat loving memory=The Secret Life of Alex Mack....I was obsessed with Larisa Oleynik's backwards baseball cap fashion statement.  On a more grown up level, I love a summery fedora/panama hat.  I think it can instantly transform anyone from 'plain-jane' to 'incognito trendsetter.'  miskabelle vintage summer handmade panama hat with red band, $18
5.  Sailor Stripes....This trend seems to keep popping up every spring/summer--and I love it!  Something so chic and French about stripes... Right now my favorite combo is black and white stripes with red accessories (or even just red lips!).  miskabelle vintage black and white striped flutter sleeve a line dress, $47

Vintage clothing is SUCH an inexpensive and eco-friendly way to keep up with the ever-changing trends....and we love being able to share our finds with you!  


P.S.  I'm sure you've noticed we've been gradually updating the design of our blog and etsy site-- we've also re-designed our main site (  Add it to your favorites for a quick link to our etsy shops (miskabelly is coming soon!), blogs, facebook, twitter, and more!
