Kokorokoko: A Blast From Fashion Past Near 727 West Madison

Believe it or not, many of the styles people showed off in the ’80s and ’90s are back in fashion now—only now they’re making their mark as vintage finds. If you didn’t hold onto your favorites, a trip to Kokorokoko can get you on the right track and refresh your closet with a bit of totally tubular fly fashion. 

This Wicker Park staple has a little bit of everything you could ask for in a vintage shop. They do ask that you book your 1-hour shopping appointment in advance, but you’ll spend that hour browsing all sorts of clothes, accessories, and more. Each piece offers the vintage touch you know and love and, in many cases, a generous dose of nostalgia along with it.  

If you’re hoping to browse more leisurely or want to share your best finds with a long-distance friend, the Kokorokoko Etsy shop may be a better fit. The shop boasts more than 2,500 sales and a solid five-star rating, designated as a “top shop for gifts” by the platform. From dresses and jewelry to t-shirts and housewares, you’ll find a little bit of vintage everything.
