OOTD - how to wear vintage clothing. ♥

Hello everyone, today I have another look for you! I thought this outfit would be a great way to help those people who might be afraid of trying vintage clothing because it 'looks too old' or they just don't know how to incorporate it into a contemporary style. So here are some easy steps to help you look on trend with a vintage touch.


Enjoy!

1) Mix vintage clothing with an item of modern day clothing

Adding elements of modernity through current trends or garments can make the outfit look contemporary when contrasted with vintage items. This boyfriend coat I got from newlook is currently in fashion and is easy to add to any outfit due to the neutral colour and style. 




2) Modern Hairstyles

Makeup and hair can add a lot to an outfit, just like how a victory rolls are iconic in vintage style, there are modern hairstyles that bring a look up to date. I like how this Ariana Grande-inspired updo makes the outfit look a lot more fun and feminine.




3) Urban Renewal

This is a form of clothing where vintage clothes/fabrics are put together to form new, more updated clothes. Urban Outfitters have a section here of gorgeous contemporary vintage items, which is where I got this black skater skirt from!
Another shop is Beyond Retro, which is a brand that collects vintage one-off garments, but also has a section of  its own clothing that creates items inspired by vintage styles.









For makeup I kept it fairly simple with a bronzed smokey eye and winged eyeliner with a pink lip so it wouldn't distract from the duck shirt!

Resolute Wears Collaboration.♥

Hello everyone! I have a some very exciting news to share with you about this brand I modelled for! 
Resolute Wears was created by a friend of mine and his designs are incredible, so as you can imagine when he asked me to model I couldn't say no!

The clothes are very good quality and are really good value.
As you may know, my usual style is vintage, so this was a new style for me and I am definitely loving it, especially as the beanie is sooo warm and perfect for the freezing weather right now.

You can purchase Resolute Wears items from:

OOTD.♥

Hello my lovelies! Today I have another lookbook for you, as you may know I am a lover of vintage fashion as its so elegant and timeless, and is what I wear most of the time. This look is 50s inspired with this big circle skirt and these retro sunglasses as well as the mixture of textures from the jacquard-like skirt and fabric shoes. I also attempted a vintage hairstyle, (which was was a change from my usual bedhair!), it was really easy to do. All i did was section the top part of my hair into two (along the parting) and after backcombing, rolled both sections back with my fingers and pinned with some bobby pins, then simply curled the rest of my hair - easy!


Enjoy!

OOTD.♥

 Hello everyone! The weather is changing and I absolutely love dressing up for this time of the year (as well as playing in the leaves!) With this look I kept it simple but added a bit of attention with a big floppy hat and gorgeous leopard print bag. Bright colours are out and this season is all about neutral tones that compliment the colours of the changing leaves. 



Enjoy!

OOTD - Ps i'm still alive. ♥

Hi strangers. I know I know I haven't posted in forever, but A2 is very time consuming! (Okay enough excuses) I recently went to London for my 18th birthday and of course I had to go vintage shopping in Brick Lane. I found this gorgeous shirt for, you won't believe it, £3!! I also got these beaut vintage Levi's for £10.


Enjoy!
