Last of the vintage styling again!!

Welcome to the last of my vintage styling!!!! This is one of my favourite pieces. The midi skirt was a huge hit over the summer and it's a great look to carry through to the winter. The top look is more evening, with a high waisted skirt it's always a good excuse for a cropped corset and it's a great way to dress up a plain colour skirt. Cropped corsets are still as popular as ever and are all over the high street. In the second image I added, yes the cream jacket again! I know I have massively overused this but I don't care!! I won't blab about the jacket anymore, look back at my previous posts to read about it!!

In the next look I paired the skirt with the cropped polka dot tee. It's a really cute daytime look, admittedly more for the summer but i'm just getting you prepared early!!

And lastly, a winter look finally!! This is a really nice way to stay glam in the cold winter months. The little short sleeved jumper is really sweet and would look really nice with a bow brooch or some other cute jewellery. I added some knee-high boots for a 70's look, and to keep the lovely Jess's legs warm, you can add some wooly tights for extra insulation too! A fur coat would keep this looking 70's and cosy :-)

More vintage styling!!

The first thing I thought when I saw this skirt was - Missoni. It's a really unusual print and great for sprucing up a slightly more conservative outfit. I think pencil skirts are a really good look and very sexy on all women. I teamed this first with a one sleeved ASOS leotard, it's a really flattering style and creates a sleek silhouette. Second I teamed it with the cropped sequin corset just to add some sparkle.
Third I had to crack out the gorgeous blazer again! It really goes with everything and the colour works perfectly with the colours in the skirt, It lifts the outfit and adds a nice depth too, this would be completed really well by a pair of chunky art deco studded earrings.
Lastly, this gorgeous cream coat. I love the oversized style, it's very 1920's old school glamour and keeps you warm while still being stylish, winner all round!

More vintage styling!!

Another couple of looks with the gorgeous jacket!!! These are a little less vintage and more up-to-date. The top look is very basic, plain black top and leggings with the jacket. It's a very simple look but still stylish and understated. It's a nice base to work on top of, jewellery and accessories can jazz this up or for those who prefer simple this is a really good look.

The second look is a little more outgoing. I've added the wet look leggings and leopard print corset style top for more of an evening look. The top is actually from primark but it looks quite vintage which works well with the style of the jacket. Some statement earrings would make this look really striking for a night out.

Vintage Styling

I am IN LOVE with this jacket!!!! Love it love it love it! I've used this quite a lot in the styling because it goes with everything and it's a really great shape. It's a simple colour but the shape is very distinctive and a great alternative to a collared blazer. I've rolled the sleeves up as I like the look it creates, it's got a bit of a dynasty feel to it! The polka dot top underneath was originally a dress that Jess cut up, and I really love what she's done with it. It's a great little top for the summer with some denim high waisted shorts but i've styled it here for more of an evening look. Ideally I would pair it with something higher waisted than the sequin hotpants so she doesn't freeze to death but for the purposes of this blog it's a good look on her. The jacket keeps the sequin hotpants a little more demure and the loose fit of the cropped top is a suitable contrast to the tight shorts. I don't think much jewellery is required for this look as the colours go so well too much jewellery would ruin the effect but perhaps some statement earrings or a short pearl necklace would be in keeping with the vintage feel. You could also style this with some high waisted jeans for a more casual look or some high waisted peg leg trousers and heels for an alternative evening look :-)

More vintage styling!!

Sorry i've been a bit rubbish with posting this week but I finally have some more vintage styling for you!! Hope you like ...

Today's piece is focusing on this one shirt and a few different ways to style it. This is a really great shirt, little longer than I would usually go for but the print is lovely and I really like the colour. In the top image I styled it quite basic with the black vest dress from H&M, tights and boots. You can add jewellery to dress it up too or keep it quite casual like this for a day out shopping.

In the second image the whole outfit is the same but i've added a belt on the waist to draw the shirt in. This is a good look if you have bigger boobs or are a larger size as it shows off your shape and accentuates your waist. A gold metal belt would also work really well with this look.

The third and fourth images show the same outfit again but this time the shirt is done up to halfway and i've put a gold bow brooch on the collar as you can see in close up. I really love this current trend for collar details and this brooch is really cute. A black pussybow would be another good option for this look.

Last look for this shirt is a bit more outgoing. Yes, i've whipped out the sequin hotpants again! This works because the hotpants are teamed with a shirt which stops the whole ensemble from being to revealing. This shirt is a little long but you get the general idea of the look i'm going for! A collar is a really good background for statement jewellery and this necklace slots in under this collar really nicely.

I hope you like the looks i've done for this shirt, keep checking back for more vintage styling with the lovely Jess!!

Vintage Styling!!!!!

Ok so this is going to be one of my favourite pieces to blog about! My lovely friend Jess has some beautiful vintage pieces that she wanted some tips on how to style so we had a little photoshoot in her (absolutely lovely) bedroom and I will be posting a few images each day over the next few days, here goes....

So the top two pictures are a couple of different ways to style this gorgeous maroon cardigan. I love this cardigan, the colour is great, especially for the festive season, and it looks really good with the black vest dress (H&M) as the contrast between the tight dress and the textured cardi really complement eachother. I also styled it with my cream lace dress (also H&M!) as its nice and girly and the colours work really well together. The black knee boots also add a really 60's feel to the outfit and are great for keeping your legs warm in the winter!

Next to this fantastic beaded top which is a very popular look this season. As the top is a loose, casual fit, I styled it with my sequin hotpants for a going out look. I love sequin hotpants but I always get a bit nervous wearing them as they are so revealing but this works perfectly, the top is loose which contrasts against the hotpants and keeps Jess's chest covered up so there isn't too much on show!! I think she looks gorgeous in this outfit and I am now on the hunt for a top like this to wear with my hotpants!

Last look for today is a nice daytime look. Jess's vintage coat is very casual so it wouldn't work for a smart event but looks great with a simple pair of leggings, a t-shirt and ankle boots for a wintry feel! Add a wooly scarf and hat to complete the look :-)

That's it for today so keep checking back for some more gorgeous vintage pieces! Until tomorrow...
