There's something so old-fashioned about cooling off with a portable fan, so why not get one with a cool retro look? With the heat wave that's now scorching several states — not to mention back-to-school shopping for dorm dwellers — I've rounded up three stylish vintage-looking fans for tight budgets and total splurges.
Good: I love the dark chrome finish on this Aloha Credenza Fan in Polished Nickel ($19.99), and you can't beat the price.

Better: The old-school oscillating fan gets a chic coat of paint: the Vivre Selection Cool Breeze Fan ($75) comes in bright blue or funky orange.
Best: The one I'm really craving is the VornadoFan 60th Anniversary Special Edition Retro Table Fan ($99.99). It's display worthy looks and incredibly soft whir make it well worth the price.
