As you know, in 2017 we’ll be launching a vintage cloting offering. Until then we want to inspire you with just how versatile a vintage wardrobe can be. You can get so many outfits out of one gorgeous piece. Our most recent shoot featured this stand-out, killer of a vintage jacket. It’s from our archive and is just the kind of piece we’ll be bringing you in our edit when we launch.
A statement jacket is a wardrobe essential. A VINTAGE statement jackets is even more of a must-have. With a timeless piece such as this one you’ll always be on the best dressed list.
1) With leather: sequins and leather is just such a fabulous combo. These mint condition vintage leather trousers are from our archive and are a favourite. A leather skirt or shorts would look just as stellar.
We love mixing vintage with high street purchases as it’s a great way to ensure you don’t look dated or cliched. This divine high street powder blue, crepe top just made those sequins pop and was a great texture contrast to the leather.
2) With demin: ok so we’re a bit biased as we are obsessed with denim and as far as we are concerned, EVERYTHING looks good with denim. These vintage jeans are just the right wash and they tone the outfit down a bit. Sometimes a girl doesn’t want to look like she’s made too much of an effort. Pairing your statement jacket with denim (again a skirt or shorts would work just as well) gives you that ‘just thrown on look’. Having a slightly more casual look also means you can wear a few more accessories. Isn’t this vintage belt just so gorgeous!! Just like denim, the leather wears so well and looks better and better with age.
3) With cashmere: need we say more? This is super luxe yet nicely pared down. This vintage cashmere cardi is so fine in tucks in just perfectly and it’s a bottle green colour that you just don’t see that much nowadays. Again, as this look is more casual you can go harder with the accessories as we’ve done with this vintage bag from our archive.
