Fashion Items for the Vintage-Obsessed Girl

A-line skirts (or dresses):

A typical A-line skirt is fitted at the hips and then gradually widens out and flares towards the hem; creating the silhouette of the letter ‘A’ – hence the name. They are available either just above the knee, below it or mid-calf, with mid-calf being the most vintage-inspired cut. A beautiful A-line skirt is a crucial addition to your vintage-chic style. If you find one that you like, buy it in many different colours! Floral-patterned A-line skirts look gorgeous with a cute little 60’s-style cardigan and some ballet pumps.

Cardigans:

A lightweight knitted cardigan oozes vintage appeal. Pair with a flared dress that has been cinched at the waist with a belt, a pearl necklace and a pair of Mary-Jane’s. If you’re aiming for a 60’s look, pair your cardigan with some pedal pushers. Take note to always use an intelligent liquid detergent when washing your wools and knits as they are prone to pellets and shrinking!

Cape:

A beautiful cape will cover your look in a stylish vintage flair. Choose a cape with a faux fur necklace, in either a knit, wool or velvet fabric for added glamour. Ensure that you wear fitted clothing underneath, such as a skirt suit or pencil skirt and blouse for coy drama.

Pearl jewellery:

Vintage just wouldn’t be the same without a lovely set of pearls. A simple pearl necklace or a pair of pearl-drop earrings will finish off any look with a touch of times-gone-by.

Pencil skirts:

Pencil skirts have to be a firm favourite on this list! They are so versatile; they succeed in just about any situation! From the office to date night, to an evening painting the town red, they are effortlessly sexy and incredibly versatile. Pair with some peep-toe shoes or a pair of Mary-Jane heels and you’re ready to add some vintage vamp to your look!

Mary-Janes and Court shoes:

You’ve been hearing about Mary-Janes throughout this article, and these are those gorgeous thick-heeled pumps with a dainty strap over the foot. These and court shoes are the perfect complement to your vintage look, and add a vintage air to many regular outfits!

There are many delightful vintage fashion finds out there, and if you are struggling to find the perfect emulation in your local stores, look a little deeper at second-hand shops and maybe even in your mom’s attic! Get your hands on a pair of classy white elbow-length gloves, some oversized cat-eye sunglasses, tune up on your old-school slang (think about calling a handsome man a ‘dish’ and telling that annoying person to ‘scram!’) and put on a record. Because having a vintage style is not just about how you look, it’s an essence that you exude too.
