STiLUM: How To Dress Up Vintage?

I Love Vintage! Vintage clothes, red lips, pin up hair do’s and the wholesome goodness of  romanticism.

Those high waist skirts, lace mittens, milky pearls, fun polka dots, prim curls, queenly hats, pretty tea ups & cutlery and PARIS! Whats not to love about vintage. Most importantly of all- if its vintage its never out of fashion!

Standardly, clothing which was produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 20 years before the present day is considered vintage. So all those clothes that your grand maa stitched for you mum and are now sagging in your cabinet needs to get out and show off. I too own a few hand stitched 30 year old vintage cardigans

I have been wanting to do a summer vintage look for the longest time now BUT without getting my pockets hollowed by shopping some 1950’s original. Vintage shopping can be confusing and daunting. So what to do and where to shop if you are new to vintage!? Today I will tell you how to get that flawless vintage look and where to shop the dream pieces.

You all know my love for online shopping. FabAlley.com is one of my preferred online stores. Their collection is colossal that too at affordable prices and in rhyme with the vougish trends. When I thought of creating this vintage look not only did FabAlley have all what I wanted but also had great options to select from. What I really appreciate about FabAlley is the bulk of love they send out with their orders to the customers. Their packages are so neatly and uniformly packed that for once I didn’t feel like opening mine! 😛

 

Rules To Get That Flawless Vintage Look:

One: Concentrate on key pieces and trends from an era.

Trends like polka dots, lace embroidery, mid length dresses or key pieces like hats or gloves! Polka dots are synonym to vintage fun and they are certainly on the trend pie this year. Lace on the other hand adds its fantasy! Hence I choose a high waist polka dot in mid length with a monochrome lace top from FabAlley for this look.

Two: No Chunky! Hey Dainty.

Chunky or ‘statement’ jewellery as many may call is not the right call actually. Pretty collar pins, lace gloves, leather watches, round sunnies add a sublime touch of style to the vintage look.  Hence I chose a plain black belt, floral sunnies.

Three: Roll Up Tresses!

Messy or neat, vintage calls for a ladylike hair do. Curl up your tresses, play with few twistes here and there and pin to a up do. Keeping it simple is the key.

Four: RED!

Red is the green signal for a quintessential vintage look. Red lips, red heals, red bags etc. I think one particularly needs a dash of red to stamp the look as vintage. So don’t shy out to try your mum’s wildest red lipstick.
