Obviously you can wear whatever that makes you feel good and confident. If you are sort of an old-school girl typed one like myself, you would definitely love wearing vintage fashion pieces more often. Even if you are not, it will not hurt anyone to clad in a vintage garment once in a while. But if you do not pair up your total look perfectly, you would end up looking like you are wearing some sort of a Costume. So I thought of putting up some ideas to wear vintage in a sophisticated manner.
Vintage garments with a sense of modernity
When you are shopping for vintage garments, instead of trying out what Queen Victoria would have been wearing those days, go for vintage pieces which are contemporary. Unless otherwise you would look like a photograph ripped-out from an old album. There are so many sellers who offer modern vintage dresses online, so you can easily compare the modern trends and choose a vintage garment that assembles the look. Check out celebrity looks often as they sometimes impeccably shine in vintage dresses just like they are wearing a 2018 runaway dress!
If you have picked up a vintage dress, do not wear vintage accessories at all. Here is the point where you can choose some trendiest accessories to go with your vintage dress. Always pair up your vintage dress with a pair of modern footwear and contemporary pieces of jewelry. This combination would streamline your look and make your total appearance unique. If you still want all vintage, at least add a chic pair of modern sunglasses.
Vintage accessories with modern outfits
Another thing you can try out is, cladding up in a modern outfit and wear vintage accessories. There are so many vintage pieces starting from over-sized earrings to bangles to strings of pearls you can try out. You can even choose a signature vintage handbag. On one hand you are dressed up to modern trends and on the other hand, you give out the vintage glamour through your accessories. You can find such vintage kind of accessories from any great fair trade clothing online store as they sell both clothing and accessories altogether.
Make up on point
Wearing vintage make-up along with a sheer vintage garment would not be the most desired look these days. Do not make a fuss over to learn vintage make-up, just put on your everyday make-up and trust me you will look good. Smoky eyes, red lippies and shimmering blushers are okay with any outfit. If you want you can do a vintage style hair bun or braids as far as it suites your appearance.
