There is a certain feel of glamour when you are able to rock the vintage look. In the world of fashion, I believe how trends come and go and come back after every few years. Since vintage fashion has been around for a while, knowing how to rock this look can help you show off a nice fashion statement which would set you apart from the rest of the crowd. Here’s how:
You don’t have to wear vintage all over. You can just start with a single piece of clothing, or maybe even an accessory such as an aged-looking cocktail ring. You’ll get used to the look and it’ll grow on you over time.
Choose your colors well.
Pastels and dainty colors look very much like vintage pieces. Go for corals, pinks, beiges, and other soft tones to achieve that vintage look.
Mind the cut of your clothes.
This defines what genre a piece of clothing looks like, so be mindful of the cut of your clothes. Baby collars, big pockets, mid-length skirts and the like are just some of the examples of clothes which can help you achieve the vintage look.
You can use a vintage bag, belt, shoes, or vintage pieces of jewelry such as bracelets, rings, and earrings. A casual jeans and shirt getup will get more personality with the right accessories. Do not over accessorize though. Keep your look neat and try not to look crowded.
Yes, the idea of wearing vintage is to achieve a look which is not of this time, but there are still ways to look “in” instead of looking like a piece of antique. Be careful with the prints you choose and remember to find the balance between your vintage pieces and modern pieces. This way, you won’t look like you came out of someone’s closet from way back.
If you’re having a hard time pulling off the vintage look, I suggest you look at some fashion photos and find basic pieces which look like the ones worn by the models. This will give you a feel of what styles to go after and you can build your own style from there!
