1. Vintage Dresses
A beautiful vintage inspired dress is an absolute must have. There are so many styles out there, from the drop waist skirts of the 1920s, the pussy bow collars of the 1940s, or the full skirts of the 1950s. We have lots of beautiful unique styles in store, to help you add some vintage flair to your wardrobe. Check out our latest collections to see which era suits you best.
2. Vintage Style Blouse
Every vintage wardrobe must feature a retro blouse. Choose one with a Peter Pan collar or a pussy bow neckline to create the right look. Plain colours or polka dot prints work well with most separates.
3. A Line Skirt
The A Line skirt is a classic staple item for any vintage wardrobe, especially to help you create that super flattering fit and flare shape. Opt for plain colours so you can mix and match with different blouses.
4. Vintage Style Heels
Every vintage inspired outfit must have a killer pair of vintage style heels. Some classic retro styles include brogues, Mary Janes, Oxfords, peep toe and t-bar. Choose colours that suit multiple styles, such as tan brown, black and nude.
Wearing a brooch can really add that extra special something to your vintage outfit. There's an infinite amount of variety out there, choose one that suits your style.
6. Vintage Knits
No matter the season, cardigans and cropped jumpers are such an important addition to any vintage inspired outfit. Choose colours that will suit any style, and its worth having a few different shades for different times of the year. For Autumn/Winter, choose mustard, burgundy and dark green cardigans. For Spring/Summer go for brighter shades.
7. Red Lipstick
Where would any vintage girl be without the perfect red lipstick? Choose a coral shade for a subtle day look, and a ruby red for evenings out.
8. Vintage style handbag
If you want to go really retro choose a genuine vintage. The 1950's kelly bag is a great choice and you can find many examples on eBay.
If you wear glasses, try opting for a vintage style rounded or cat eye frame to add to your look.
10. Faux Fur Shawl
Add some vintage glamour to your favourite coats with a faux fur shawl. Choose a vintage brooch to fasten it in place.
