How to get that vintage look?
While visiting Savannah I put together a cute 1950’s inspired ensemble, but nothing I was wearing was more then 5 years old! I’m slowly but surely putting together a collection of true vintage pieces for myself, but those pieces can be hard to come by and sometimes expensive. So right now, I’m just working with the 1950’s aesthetic.
First I looked at what make the “1950’s look” the “1950’s look”? And after looking A LOT of photos on Pinterest I have determined that the generally look of the 1950’s would be and hourglass silhouette, an emphasis on the waist, and a full skirt that would fall to right below the knees.
A large amount of the time the outfit would be paired with a hat, gloves, and a necklace. The necklace was more often then not made out of pearls.
Here, from head to toe I am wearing
A white wool beret from Nordstrom
A red sweater from TJ Maxx
A blue skirt from I can’t remember where
Dark Brown boots from Belk
A coat that I am still in love with form Alter’d State
Gloves from Charming Charlie’s
A gold and pearl necklace from my Granny
I felt so cute in this outfit and cannot wait to wear it again!
