Hello everyone! :) As you might have already read in the vintage guide we posted two days ago, this is the first outfit of a fashion series that Stef of Magnoliaelectric, Stefanie of Squeaky Swing and I want to show you. After sharing our knowledge about vintage shopping, we want to provide you with a few styling tips and tricks.
When Stef and Stefanie came to Potsdam and visited me, we spent one afternoon with doing outfit shoots, exchanged and shared clothes and accessories (my room was a mess, full with all our favourite dresses and shoes! :)) and composed outfits which fit together and then we thought about how to style those awesome vintage dresses best.
At first, this dress looked like a sack, there was no shape, this piece of clothing was not close-fitting at all. By simply adding a pretty belt, this looked more like a dress and gave it a completely different shape and totally changed my silhouette.
Moreover, it’s always a good idea to combine light and pale colors with bright accessories. Consequently, a good contrast is created and this makes an outfit interesting and nice to look at.
As you can see, only the dress is vintage and old, all the accessories are new and there you can see how one can easily combine old and new pieces in a way that it looks appealing. The only thing that’s important is that you pay attention to color schemes and that you take into account which colors and patterns go together well.
I hope this advice helps you a bit when styling your own outfit with a pretty vintage piece!
In the following days you’ll be able to see some more posts of this series, so don’t forget to check out the blogs of Stef of Magnoliaelectric and Stefanie of Squeaky Swing this week for more vintage outfit posts and styling ideas! :)
