Add more vintage style to your wardrobe with these easy style tips

Are you desperate to add a touch of vintage style to your wardrobe? It’s easy to look back at the styles of fashion icons like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Jane Mansfield and think that a white halter neck dress and perfectly coiffed hairdo will cut it. Sadly, it’s not that simple.

Vintage style means flawless elegance and it’s not easy to pull off. However, there are ways that you can add a touch of vintage style to your current wardrobe without looking like you’ve walked straight out of a fancy-dress shop. Read on for some simple vintage style advice!

Glasses

The most effective way to emanate a vintage vibe is by using accessories. This means that if you wear glasses, you’re in luck! You’ll find a huge range of vintage style glasses available online. Vintage style glasses are certainly popular right now, and you can forget painfully heavy and bulky frames of yesteryear, as these days you can enjoy vintage style in absolute comfort.

Start shopping for vintage glasses online now and you can try hundreds of vintage styles virtually, from the comfort of your own home!

An A-line skirt

Unequivocally 50s! A-line skirts are the epitome of vintage style and they go with pretty much anything. This means that incorporating them into your current wardrobe is essential. The flattering cut of an A-line skirt means that it suits any body shape and type, meaning you’ll be full of confidence and vintage vibes no matter your shape or your age!

Add some pearls

Pearls ooze glamour and sophistication, but they’re also subtle and delicate. Working with simple accessories like a string of pearls means you can add vintage style to any outfit. Whether you’re heading to the office, for a coffee with the girls, or enjoying a night out with your S.O.

Try adding some vintage buttons

If you love sewing, then this one could be for you. If you want to mix eras and add a splash of vintage to your current shirts, blouses, and cardigans then consider replacing the buttons on your contemporary pieces with vintage ones. You’ll find buttons from eras gone by in haberdashery shops and even in online marketplaces. If you don’t know how to sew, there’s no better time to learn.

Rich fabrics are your friends

Stars of the silver screen didn’t wear polyester or cheap materials, they draped themselves in heavenly, luxurious fabrics. Silk, velvet, and satin were always the go-to fabrics on the red carpet and thankfully these days they don’t cost the earth. You don’t necessarily have to choose items of clothing in these richer materials. Shoes, handbags, and scarves can add a dash of sophisticated vintage to any modern outfit.

And finally, don’t overdo it!

It’s easy to try and replicate a whole vintage outfit. However, when it comes to fashion, less is often more. Adding a few vintage touches to your current wardrobe can add vintage luxury to any outfit! Keep it simple and experiment with different textures, fabrics, and colours.

5 Handbag Shapes Every Woman Needs in Her Wardrobe

Handbags are my favourite type of accessory because they are like an extension of my body. They have the power to take a plain outfit to a whole new style level. I love having handbags in different shapes for different occasions. My handbags are usually quite large because I like to put all sorts inside them. There are 5 handbag shapes every woman needs in her wardrobe. These handbag shapes are very common, and I am sure you would have come across them if you don’t already have them in your bag collection.

Clutch

For those who don’t know, clutches were invented in the 1920s and have been a fashion hit ever since. I have a few clutches. They are great for special events. I don’t carry them much because they are impractical for everyday use but they do look pretty for occasions when I do need them.

Tote

Tote bags are usually large and flat with an open top and zippered pockets inside. They are my favourite sort of bags because they come in the right size. I like my bags large.

Baguette

This shape is named after the French loaf of bread because of the similarity in the shapes. Baguette bags have short straps and are worn tucked under the arm. They are super stylish. I have had a DKNY baguette bag for years now and I am still so very in love with it. For those who are not sure of what a Baguette bag looks like, here is an example below.

Minaudière

A Minaudière is a clutch bag without handles or straps. It is the combination of a purse and an evening bag. The name comes from the French ‘minauder’ which means ‘to simper’.

Hobo

Hobo bags are also my favourites. I love them because they are oversized soft leather bags in a curved crescent shape with a shoulder strap. Many of my bags are in Hobo shapes.

What my autumn wardrobe would look like

Autumn is around the corner and I can’t wait to embrace it. I love the beautiful autumn leaves and cooler weather. It has been painfully warm here in Cheshire in the last few days. The crazy warm weather is making me want the autumn season even more. So what will my autumn wardrobe look like? I work from home as normal and with the current situation we are all in, I am not socialising much. That means my autumn wardrobe will look pretty much like my spring and summer wardrobe but a bit thicker.

Here are 5 items I am looking forward to wearing this autumn season –

Turbans/Scarves

I love turbans and scarves. They keep my head warm and they are great for when I don’t have the time to style my hair properly. I also love wearing turbans/scarves because the extra warmth keeps my scalp moisturised which helps the hair grow. I have found some amazing turbans online and I will be grabbing some of them in the next few weeks. Do you love wearing turbans/scarves?

Trainers

Trainers are great for the school run, which will be starting in the next few weeks. I can’t believe I am saying this but I have actually missed the school runs and the kiddies have missed school so much. I am looking forward to that starting again.

I love wearing my trainers. They are stylish and comfy. I will be getting a lot of wear out of my trainers this autumn season.

Sunglasses

I love that I can still wear my sunglasses on sunny autumn days. That is one fashion accessory that is more of a necessity than an accessory for me.

Light Jackets

One of the beauties of autumn fashion is that I can still wear light jackets. I cherish the last few months where I can get away with wearing a light jacket outdoors. I have a couple of light jackets I am already looking forward to wearing this autumn.

Leggings

I am a huge fan of leggings. They are super stylish and they look great with almost anything. Whenever I can’t think of what to wear, I throw on a pair of leggings and everything else just fits into place. In the last few days, it has been way too warm to throw on a pair of leggings. I am looking forward to the cooler months to make up for the lost time.
