How to create a 'vintage' look from your old clothesWednesday, February 01, 2017
Dress- Koovs// Sunglasses- Versace// Watch- Esprit//
Shoes- Bronx// Bag- Louis Vuitton
If you're a hoarder and can't get rid of your old buys, then this post is for you. I keep buying and stacking my cupboard with new cool-er things but have a really hard time discarding my older purchases even if they don't fit me now in the hope that they might fit someday. But don't we all do that? *sigh! So I made a conscious decision to mix and match my old stuff with some new ones to come up with interesting outfits with a vintage vibe.
It's true, when confused choose black! I paired this black dress which I ordered from Koovs with all my classic favourites that have been lying around the house for a while now. Keeping it classic means not going over board with accessorising and styling your look. The trick is to wear a solid colour, preferably a dark shade and keep it really basic yet stylish. This A-line dress is perfect for a lunch outing or even for a work meeting. It's my non fussy-go to dress which I absolutely love.
I simply teamed it up with a really old Esprit floral mother of pearl watch and a pair of 20 years old Versace sunnies. I'm sure we all have a lot such old things we bought when we were in school or maybe go through your mother's old must haves and you'd definitely hit gold!
I finished the ensemble with a sleek look with straightened hair and oxblood Louis Vuitton bag and Bronx shoes. Try creating outfits from your existing wardrobe just like this and do share your vintage looks with us.
