Summer is on the horizon, and what a great time it is for women to consider revamping their closets and becoming a bit more concerned with their appearances. A lot of events that require women to look stylish tend to pop up during the summer and so pick your outfits with two things in mind: envy and admiration!
Vintage clothing is not just stylish; it also allows you to be unique. However, it is best to stick to just one vintage piece at a time and avoid wearing vintage from head to toe. As an example: that incredible vintage shift dress that was made just for your body can be dressed up or down four ways –
1.You can rock your vintage dress to work
Wear your vintage dress with a blazer, wear it with a pair of pumps or wedges for all day comfort, and throw in a splash of glamour by adding a cuff and chandelier earrings. A tote bag will pull your look together!
TIP: Do not be afraid of colour – one bold colour will go a long way in bringing life to your outfit.
2.Take your vintage shift dress out for drinks with the girls
This is probably the simplest look to put together. All you have to do is just to slip on your sky high heels – a pair with studs or bold colours will do very nicely here. Add a stylish clutch bag and a statement cocktail ring and you’re ready to paint the town red.
Tip: Style your hair in a fashion that complements you but also shows off the neckline of your dress.
3. You can rock your vintage dress to a wedding.
Nothing will ruin your day more than seeing another person wearing the exact same dress! Avoid this by adding a fascinator, matching heels, sunglasses and a clutch bag to your vintage shift dress.
Tip: Make sure your clutch is big enough for your camera, phone and of course your make up! You wouldn’t want to ruin the wedding photos with you smudged lipstick now would you?
4.Take that number to church!
The trick is to look simple but elegant. So just add earrings, a watch and a stylish handbag. A pair of mid height or kitten heels will round this look out quite appropriately.
Tip: Keep your earrings as simple as possible. Think along the lines of a pair of pearl studs.
So now that you have options, who said looking good would cost a fortune!?
