You literally never have to grow up, especially not when fashion has your back. The new Care Bears x Unique Vintage collaboration proves just that. (Offered in sizes 2 to 26.) Unique Vintage merged its retro style with everyone's favorite childhood stuffed bear to create a nostalgic, yet surprisingly grownup capsule collection. One would never suspect a line starring pastel bears would translate into an adult closet, but it definitely can be done.
The vintage-inspired collection has 10 pieces that span across apparel and accessories. "Our UV girl loves a nostalgic moment and the Care Bears x Unique Vintage collection really embodies the colorful, fun nature of the Unique Vintage brand. Even more, as a brand that embraces inclusivity and diversity, we felt like Care Bears was a great match for us," Katie Echeverry, CEO and Founder, Unique Vintage, tells Bustle.
Walking down the street with a Care Bears tin lunchbox as a purse definitely spells out fun. The entire collection is playful and eccentric, and will make you miss your old grade school days.
Warning: after you buy one of these Care Bears outfits, you might start immediately wishing you had a sticker book and Lunchable boxes surrounding you. It will be hard not to want to be a kid again with this fun line. Check out some of the options below.
Funshine Bear Print Darcy Swing Dress

This swing dress has a blue skirt and yellow bodice, which is "lit up" by the Care Bear in the motif.
