52 Retro Housewife Fashion Styles

From Housewife Chic Fashion to Edgy Homemaker Editorials

— June 15, 2013 — Fashion
These retro housewife fashion styles are offering up some great tips on how to infuse some classically vintage looks into your wardrobe.

When someone mentions the term 'housewife,' images of patterned aprons, puffy dresses and tied-up hairstyles are some of the things that instantly comes to mind. Housewives traditionally consist of women who have chosen to stay at home to care for their children, while their partner goes off to work. Housewives back in the day had a very iconic appearance, showcasing clothing styles that were very conservative yet feminine at the same time. These classic housewife styles have been updated with a more modern touch, bringing these otherwise conservative styles back into the 21st century.

From hot housewife photography to leather-clad housewife looks, these vintage fashion styles are allowing a whole new generation of people the opportunity to appreciate how women used to dress back in the day.
