Go Full Vintage Day & Night With These 4 Chic Styles!

Go Full Vintage Day & Night With These 4 Chic Styles!

Don’t you just love watching old movies and daydreaming about living in the past? When you think about ‘the olden days’ you inevitably think about the perfectly charming housewives of the fifties, free-spirited hippies of the sixties, and glamorous disco queens of the seventies. It doesn’t matter what era we speak of, girls strived to emphasize their femininity and look beautiful in every situation. If – like me – you are hopelessly in love with the vintage style, here are four ways to incorporate it into your everyday life. 

A Touch For The Office...

Picking the right clothes for the office can be challenging, mostly because you must always look professional and follow the dress code. Still, this does not mean that you can't go full vintage if you want. Pick some trendy pieces like: silk blouses with rounded sunburst necklines or delicate lace collars which pair perfectly with knee-length pencil skirts. Then, go for a retro hairdo: twice tied ponytail, updo with a scarf or a simple headband. You will look both professional and stylish!

For A Chic Street Style...

On those casual days when you don’t have any classes or business appointments you are completely free to wear the clothes you always wanted. Wide pants which emphasize your waist paired up with sleeveless shirts with delicate prints and platform heels will make you feel like you’re in the seventies, and in the blink of an eye you'll be transformed. Simple butterfly-sleeve dresses with floral prints that sway just below your knees can be worn with modern crossbodies, pretty floppy hats and extra round sunglasses. You may also want to add an old brooch to your dress or tie a scarf around your neck or bag.

For a Classy Night Out...

Going out with your friends is the perfect opportunity to show off your vintage pieces, stylish accessories and even makeup! We suggest opting for a gorgeous lacy night dress that can be paired up with some classic stiletto heels. Top your look up with a lovely brooch and cocktail ring, or even lace gloves and a clutch to really channel those vintage film movie. For your makeup, go minimal, a bright red lipstick and a dash of glittery eye shadow are perfection.

For Your Everyday Look...

You may not be able to wear your vintage clothes on a daily basis, but that doesn't mean that you can't pull off an elegant and sophisticated look. The key is in the details: wearing vintage makeup, hairdos, and accessories will do the trick, and they are much easier to incorporate into your everyday look than you may think. Wear your winged eyeliner boldly, and don’t be afraid to darken your eyebrows a bit to draw more attention to your eyes. Vintage bags are also perfect for pretty much any situation: beaded clutch bags for your nights out, mini suede bags to match your vintage shoes, or circle bags – which look like old hat boxes and always draw some much-appreciated attention.

Some may hesitate to put on a lace dress and curl their hair like pin-up girls, but if you really love the vintage look, there is no reason to be afraid or ashamed of expressing your truest self. Boldly embrace your love for old-school style and experiment with makeup, clothes, and accessories whenever you can. Feel free to be your most fearless fashionista, and you'll soon be seen as ‘that beautiful girl in the stylish vintage outfit’.
