Reinvent yourself

I’m often asked for tips about how to wear vintage clothes without looking old-fashioned. The best advice I can give is the one thing I always use myself: mix old and new, low and high - the result will always be original. The secret is really something very simple: modern accessories and shoes will always make a vintage piece stand out and look modern again.

Take this outfit for example: the dress is a simple retro piece that I styled with a burgundy belt to give it a flattering shape and a very actual pair of boots to reinvent the whole look. This way I avoided an outdated get up (that’s sometimes the case when wearing an all vintage outfit) or looking like the window mannequin of a high street store (which is the other face of the coin when you combine one too many on trend items in your outfits).

If you’re not a lover of high heels and statement jewelry are not really your style than you can always wear a new pair of shades. These Marc Jacobs sunglasses for example are both timeless and chic and will elevate any get up you have in mind. Then again I’m a die-hard fan of sunnies and a true believer in their power of making anything cool.
