Skirts are so lovely this spring! What is even more lovely that finding unique vintage skirts for next to nothing when shopping local vintage and thrift. Rely on classic and era silhouettes to let their structure in the garment dominate your look. Go with it, and pair down with simple coordinating pieces like solid color or white tanks and tees. Belts can be a great vintage accessories to change any simple look, to a whole new voice.
Pairing looks in new and innovative ways is a great way to keep a strong lewk while remaining fabulous and unique. Let fashion be fun, expressive, and unconventional! Pairing leggings with a short and a boot, as shown above or a flannel with a vest, a jegging and a wedge, can be fun ways to play with our garments. Pieces that are not meant to go together can give us those ah ha moments when paired together in the right way. When you can find the time, make a date with your closet, and have a little eclectic fun! Wearing a color story such as earth tone, light greys, and neons are very haute this season, so take advantage! What could be more fun than pairing neons and neutrals?! Always remember a fashionistas hair can be her loudest and best accessory. Make sure you are wearing your hair lewk, and not the other way around. Integrating your hair style within the same sense as your garments can be hard. remember to have a conceptual outline of your look, along with a color story, to be sure your hair falls right in line with your total fierceness!
Other must haves include vests such as faux fur, crochet, denim, chiffon, and cut off. Vintage or like inspired belts, hats and bags are the easiest ways to tie any piece into a firm hipster or downtown look. Billowy tops, tanks, tees, and shift dresses will also help you create that appeal. Don't be afraid to tuck billowy shirts into fab skirts and pair with a belt for a modern yet vintage inspired look! Wedges, and flat slouchy booties are big this season, so get them while they're hot! Feather earrings can be a bit literal in their native vibe, so be careful when pairing with feather hair and earring accessories, it can easily become gauche. Cardigans and scarfs are total must haves for any modern fashonista! Make or break any outfit with this duo of tools! Accent, or change any look into a whole different one just with a sweater or a scarf! Having an artillery in 4 basic colors is a good idea; go to colors are grey, brown, black, and white.
Bangles, long charm or beaded necklaces, headbands on the horizon, and large natural stone cocktail rings are fierce ways to heighten what your serving. The dish is boho chic is all the craze this past 2 years, so accessory houses have gone buck wild in this regard. I am lapping up every drip of it!!
