This fall, my style has taken on a definite direction into true vintage style. And while most days I love wearing 1950's shirtwaist dresses and backseam stockings, sometimes it's just too cold for that! So today, I'm showcasing three looks featuring three different vintage items: a skirt, a dress, and a sweater. For those days when you want to be warm, but still put together! And what's better, all of my vintage items were thrifted! Great for your style AND your budget! Watch the video and then read on to learn more about each outfit! https://youtu.be/0EgRejiMoEw
This beautiful pastel 1980's wool skirt has a very classic look to it. The plaid colors are light and airy and can transition beautifully from spring to fall to winter with the right color palette. Pairing this skirt with a gray peplum sweater (also thrifted) takes it into fall nicely, while a gorgeous collar accents the pinks and blues in the skirt, and maroon shoes ground the whole look. I absolutely love this collar, which is from the very talented @fairytalecollars on Instagram. Adding a special detail such as a collar or a necklace or a statement bracelet can elevate any outfit to the next level!
Perhaps the best thrifted find I've snagged in a long time, this 1970's mod dress was only ninety-nine cents. With the addition of a cozy cape and thigh high boots, this dress takes on a mod 60's vibe that is cute and warm at the same time. Yellow tights add contrast, and a headscarf with the same browns, yellows, and maroons pulls it all together.
This sweater is possibly my favorite sweater of every sweater I've ever had. I have never in my life felt so comfortable and confident in jeans as I do wearing this sweater. With its pretty border/collar print, the warm fall colors, and the forgiving shape, it hits me just right in every way! To keep it relaxed for this look, I simply paired it with jeans and boots for a cozy, comfortable fall look that is elevated by the details of the sweater.
