Guest Post: 3 Cute Ways To Wear A Vintage 1950s Dress

Saturday, September 6, 2014

Brittany kindly let me step up and write a guest post today, and I wanted to share my passion for 1950s fashion with you.

Each decade has it's own fabulous style but Fifties fashions are so fun and feminine which is why I adore them. I find that lots of people don't know how to start putting together an outfit which 'fits' with their vintage dress, so I wanted to share some of my ideas*

* It goes without saying that you can mix and match vintage in absolutely ANY way you like. Individuality is the key to enjoying yourself with what you wear, but today I wanted to concentrate on getting a genuine 50s look!

I picked 3 vintage 1950s dresses I currently have in store and dressed them up in different ways - one for a very smart evening look, one as a fun teen-inspired outfit and one which just sings to me of warm summer days (and makes me feel like I'm Grace Kelly driving a convertible through the south of France).

Don't forget to team your outfit with a fabulous retro hairstyle (you can find some great tutorials here) a flash of red lipstick and some winged eyeliner, then you'll be all set to go! Let me know what you think of the outfits, how would you wear these dresses?

  3. Very cute looks - the last one in particular is right up my style alley. A chiffon/nylon scarf, cute little hat (say, a beret) and some more jewelry instantly elevates it (further in) to the adult fashion realm, too.
