2022 Best Mother’s Day Ideas & Gifts Guide: Retro Outfit with Mom
It’s springtime once again, and that means that the sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and Mother’s Day is fast approaching. It’s the season to pay respects to the women in our lives who have nurtured and cared for us—and whether you’re here shopping for a mother figure or you’re one of these special women here to celebrate with a gift to yourself, welcome! Retro Stage is the perfect place to find vintage-inspired clothing to make you or a lovely lady you know feel youthful, elegant, and stylish while enjoying a night on the town or a quiet evening in.
You have an endless number of things to choose from when making a Mother’s Day agenda for yourself or your mom, but when it comes to deciding what to wear, Retro Stage has you covered. Here, we suggest some gorgeous retro-inspired pieces that can function as both a Mother’s Day gift and the basis of an outfit that will make her feel like the belle of the ball during your day together.
For a more elevated twist on the classic breakfast in bed, you might want to treat your mother to an unforgettable meal or a fun food-based experience to spend time together enjoying delicious flavors and cheery conversation. This category may include, but is not limited to:
- High tea
- Wine tasting
For events like these, consider a classy look, such as the 1960s Off Shoulder Velvet Bodycon Dress, for an air of sophistication that will make any mother feel like a queen for the day. If your mom isn’t much of a dress wearer or has an affinity for more daring garments, something like our 1950s Green Velvet Jumpsuit will lend that same air of high-fashion femininity while allowing for the comfort and functionality of pants. Be it mimosas, earl grey, or Chardonnay, everyone around you will be asking themselves “Where did she get that outfit?”
You might even end up cooking a meal later in the day with the fresh produce you get from the farmer’s market, in which case you may also want to have an option from the “Group activities” section on standby so as not to sully your mother’s new dress. You’ll also want to make sure to apply sunscreen if you’ll be soaking up those rays. If you’re worried about how such garments would fare in a messy kitchen while beating together a batter or tossing a dressed salad, more casual options are available in our collection of rompers, such as the Polka Dot Lace Boat Neckline Romper, or Black 1950s Polka Dot Swing Vintage Dress.
Most activities that you do together with your mother will probably require freer movement than sitting down to a relaxing meal. Examples might include:
- A spa day
- A cooking class
In these cases, you’ll want to opt for something more free-flowing and easy to wear, especially for a spa day, where the ability to roll up one’s pant legs during a pedicure will be important. Retro Stage’s selection of 1950s halter jumpsuits, including this delicate yellow 1950s floral halter jumpsuit option adorned with sunflowers, also has sunflowers pencil dress styles for dress lovers.
As well as this more striking Blue Patchwork one, will provide a full range of motion that leaves the arms and legs free and uninhibited, allowing a masseuse or nail tech to work their magic. Don't worry, we have the same style for pencil dress lovers - blue 1960s patchwork pencil dress.
Outdoor & walking
Your mind might go to hikes or yoga classes when you think of outdoor activities, but there are many other things to do with your mother that will have you on your feet without running the risk of roughing up a new outfit or drenching your clothes with sweat. You could look at things like:
- Farmer’s markets
- Museum exhibits
- A picnic in the park
A day trip in spring sunshine is a perfect occasion for light, floral ensembles. These could include our 1950s Rose Floral Swing Dress, with skirts made of loose, lightweight fabric that emanate grace and will keep you cool all day. If your mother prefers something a little simpler, a garment akin to our 1960s Rose Suspender Pencil Dress is the way go.
Walking in parks or farmer's markets, dresses decorated with butterfly often match the scenery better. Such as nude 1950s lace butterfly swing vintage dress and black 1960s butterfly backless pencil dress. Try one with your mom.
Whatever you choose to do this Mother’s Day, Retro Stage is here to outfit the special ladies in your life with stunning vintage femininity to keep them feeling stylish. The gift of old-fashioned Hollywood-esque charm is a wonderful way to show your appreciation for everything your mother figure has done for you over the years, and it’s one that will last for years to come in her closet.
