The vintage look has been attracting a lot of attention lately. Giving it a modern spin takes care of many of the challenges otherwise present if one aims for a complete vintage style. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can twist the vintage into a modern classic.
When you think of a vintage look, what is the first thing you think of? It’s usually floral patterns or polka dots.
The easiest method for achieving a vintage look is to use separate modern clothes with one part of the items having vintage prints. It’s unique and doesn’t look too out of place.
The Hairstyle and Accessories
If it’s your first time trying out the vintage scene, things like choosing a particular decade or how to assort your outfits can be hard. It’s best to start with the basics.
Something as simple as tying your hair into a bun and wrapping it with a silk scarf can give you a vintage look while you’re wearing completely modern clothes. Sunglasses that are too big for your eyes and red lipsticks should get the rest of the job done.
Denim is always the answer. That one piece of clothing that stood the test of older times and continues to be popular today.
Combine any piece of retro clothing with denim, and you have the vintage look pat-down. A retro dress can be under a denim jacket, or a shirt with star prints can be tucked into cuffed jeans.
There are plenty of other ways you can achieve the retro-modern look. However, as a beginner, you should start with these and then upgrade.
