There’s nothing like taking a trip down memory lane when that twinge of sweet nostalgia hits you; particularly when you look at something and memories come flooding back. It can be something like a house, park, movie, or a website. And isn’t it awesome if we have WordPress themes that will help you bring about this retro effect?
In this article, we will be reviewing the iRibbon Free Retro WordPress Theme by CyberChimps. Now, we like this theme a lot for one very ‘nice’ reason – its appearance. The iRibbon has a very hippie, festive, cheery feel and look that will remind you of the good ol’ times when things were simpler. It strays away from edgy, contemporary, or bold, by being homely, beautiful, and warm. And that’s not all. Take a look.
