HOW TO CREATE A VINTAGE STYLE FOR A MODERN EVENT

E L Feelgoods Vintage

Everyone loves a party. The drinks, the dancing, the invitations and even the posh cars that you might hire to get you to the event are all part of the fun. The best part of a party? Getting dressed up!

 

When you’re with your girlfriends and you’re all doing hair and make-up, you feel a real sense of bonding! One of the most exciting parts of getting ready for a big event, is finding the perfect outfit.

 

Whether you’re looking for an outfit for a wedding or you’re on the hunt for the perfect prom dresses, you need the perfect outfit that you can truly carry off. From top to toe, you will need hair accessories to shoes sorted and coordinated with your pretty new dress.

 

A modern event often means people dress for the times, but what if you chose to go vintage with your look, instead? So, how can you make your outfit pop for your evening out? What would make you stand out from the crowd?

Big Accessories

Every girl loves her accessories and choosing chunky accessories to go with your dress can really make the outfit pop out of the crowd. Large fascinators like this one are a talking point and can really draw focus to the way you have styled your whole look. Opt for a corsage on the wrist – stylish and never goes out of fashion, meaning you stay vintage at the same time as keeping up with the times.

The Dress

Putting together a vintage look can be really easy. There are so many eras for you to choose from with your look, and websites like Etsy have fantastic ideas for 1920s flapper dresses if you want a truly vintage look. Drop waists and beaded dresses may not be the fashion right now, but you will stand out from the crowd in your classy attire and give people cause to follow your fashionista footsteps!

 

If you want to add a few decades on, why not go for a full Fifties style dress with a fitted waist and a full skirt? Giving Rita Hayworth a run for her money would be such a talking point and you will look so elegant!

Shoes

Your shoes should complement your dress and come from the same era your dress is from. Skyscraper signature Louboutin’s may be the fashion right now, but they’re killer on the feet. T-bar shoes, low-heeled Mary Jane’s and Oxford’s would be the perfect choice to go with that flapper dress you’ve chosen.

 

Make sure the colour fits the dress and the style suits. Block heel shoes wouldn’t be the best choice for a 1950s-full waisted dress and you should be aware of the era you pick.

 

Going vintage for your event can be so nostalgic, especially if you choose to go vintage for prom or a high school dance. You could match how your mother dressed for her prom years before, and have the perfect photo op!
