There are so many different fashion trends and styles available on the market that it can be rather tricky knowing exactly what is in season, as everything seems to constantly evolve and change. The hottest item from last year’s catwalk could be considered passe and outdated just a few months later, so it is important to keep your finger on the pulse and be aware of what’s happening in the industry.
Classic combinations such as a leather jacket, skin-tight jeans and biker boots will never get old and tired as they always work well together. You could always wear a frayed suede top to add an element of vintage charm, and give the outfit an entirely new and interesting dimension.
However, for many of us it is important to think outside of the box and work our magic when it comes to wowing others with quirky pieces which have taken a great deal of thought and consideration. Planning an outfit takes time and effort, and you cannot wear the same thing two days in a row, so it is important to mix and match accordingly.
If you are lucky enough to live in the capital then there are plenty of places to frequent in order to pick up some charming bargains and have a good old rummage around. You do not want to look identical to everyone else, so maybe visit boutique jewellery outlets or even have pieces hand-made for that extra special touch.
So many places can customise certain pieces and add different embellishments or make alterations, so if you have something particular in mind then maybe this is the solution. You will always find traditional vintage items such as ‘40s style skirts, ruffled shirts and large clasp belts, but how can you differentiate one product from another? What makes something a must-have buy?
Is it the style, or the cut, or just that it really suits your overall style and would make the perfect addition to any wardrobe? Pretty Retro tea dresses are extremely popular, as they are quirky and cute without being too ostentatious and OTT. They come in a range of different shades, and work perfectly with a pair of kitten heels or patent pumps.
Black swing pants are also ideal for any occasion, as you can take a leisurely stroll around the park, go shopping for hours on end or board the train for a long journey and emerge refreshed, invigorated and ready to go. This is primarily due to the fact that they are incredibly comfortable, and add a hint of retro chic.
A good black vintage satchel is an absolute must-have if you have to take essentials with you such as lipstick, eyeliner and even some rouge for that authentic ‘40s look. Faux leather handbags also work extremely well with a simple but sexy fitted dress, and you can finish the look off with a pair of dainty heels.
If you really want to stand out crowd and impress the fashion elite then dolly dotty dresses are certain to do the trick. They are cute, pretty and girly, and can be teamed with a range of accessories for that extra ‘wow factor’.
These stunning garments have been created for all shapes and sizes, and perfectly flatter your curves. And, if you pair them with some patent heels or peep-toe shoes then this will perfectly complement the overall look of your outfit. For something comfortable and figure-hugging, Hell Bunny vintage dresses are absolutely essential. Red and white and blue and white polka-dot designs are funky and fresh, and it is ever so easy to find matching accessories. A bright bangle or chunky ring would definitely do the trick, as this will draw even more attention and add a little sparkle and shine to the whole ensemble.
