The Vespa: ALWAYS Retro Chic!
Nothing says summer cool like a Vespa!
This is the mod mode of transportation for the gorgeous Audrey Hepburns and Marcello Mastroiannis of the world. Ladies, pull on a bright head scarf, gents pull on some retro shades, and feel the wind on your face and the sun at your back as you ride in style!
Not only do they look great with everything from wrap dresses to swing skirts to capris, Vespas are also surprisingly easy to drive. (You don’t even need a motorcycle license to use the 50cc model!) So take one out for a spin today.
Need a little more inspiration? This uber-stylish Gwen Stefani video “Cool” is overflowing with 50s style, suave italian cool, and rockin’ Vespas! Just take a peek:
Much more, including videos, after the jump.
And here is a clip of Vespa scenes from various 50s and 60s films. Such style!
So, what do you think? What is your favorite retro movie scene featuring a Vespa? Do you already own a Vespa and love it? Leave a comment and let us know…
