It’s that time of the year again. It’s that time where we delve into the back of wardrobes and layer up in our favourite cosy knits, woolly hats and thick scarfs in preparation for the chillier months ahead.
Whilst most will follow the crowds, and look to the runways for this year’s autumn/winter trends, don’t be scared to look back to last year or even further to some vintage trends as well.
As well as reviving previous year’s dress and jeans, below are some ways you can introduce and dress up vintage clothes this autumn.
Buying Staple Pieces
When it comes to clothing, especially vintage style women’s clothing, you really are spoiled for choice, but not to worry, that’s why we’re here!
You can never go wrong with a leather coat, and we all have one; whether it’s been passed down from a few generations or “borrowed” from a sibling, it’s a timeless item to have as part of your wardrobe, elevating any look with ease.
An overlooked dress of vintage women’s fashion is the tartan pinafore dress. These dresses never go out of style and can be worn repeatedly despite the time of the year, making them such a fantastic piece for any wardrobe.
At this time of the year, the autumn leaves start turning brown, making now the perfect time to consider your autumn colours, making a tartan pinafore dress perfect for the season.
The final piece to complete the look and draw the outfit together is a good pair of vintage boots.
A strong pair of black boots is a must-have item. Regardless of the season, they can be paired with any outfit and make it so much better. What makes them better is a worn-in pair of boots that have some character to them, so make sure you get some vintage boots and complete that look.
Being stylish is great, but at the cost of your comfort, it isn’t too amazing.
The best way to do both is through layering all your favourite pieces to get a fantastic look that can withstand the autumn breeze.
Putting all those vintage pieces together makes for a completed look that’s on theme with the season and sets you ahead of the Instagram influencers.
Why follow suit when you can create your personalised look and set yourself apart from that ever-growing crowd with something unique to you.
All in all, everyone should be looking for their favourite pieces hidden in their closets because we all have a good jacket or dress tucked away somewhere.
Find your staple pieces! There are essential pieces that can create a lot of impact on their own, and considering the season colours that are rustic and brown will also elevate that look.
Lastly, throw it all together. Layering is the key to making an outfit “whole”. An individual piece can look stylish, but a piece of clothing that compliments another is what will make your look a lot more elevated and set you apart from the crowd.
