Dresses are definitely the easiest of options when trying to achieve a vintage look. Trousers can look too modern and will give you the opposite effect. Dresses and skirts should usually fall into the knee-length category for a true vintage look. The 1920’s Charleston style to the 1950’s rockabilly are all of this length and can include styles such as pleated, ra-ra and A-Line.
Necklines for vintage dresses and blouses can consist of sweetheart, halter-neck and boat-neck shapes so finding a style to suit your shoulder shape is easy as pie. Do not be afraid to go a bit overboard when it comes to lace detail. Lace is a highly respectable fabric and expensive too so is perfect for adding that je ne Sais qua to any vintage apparel. Lace can be added to necklines, cuffs, hemlines and even full boleros and tops. (via) If choosing lace try to keep it of a similar colour to the garment you are wearing. However this rule does not apply if you are going for a vintage rockabilly image.
Vintage rockabilly, or 1950’s style, includes bold colours and patterns such at tartan and polka dots. Sweetheart neck-lines and halter-necks are all the rage as are knee-length hemlines. With this style of vintage it is paramount that your waistline is shaped accordingly and this also goes for the 1940’s. Accessorise fitted dresses and tops with belts for extra shape and style when rocking this look and try to use contrasting colours. Favourite colours for the 1950’s vintage style are red, white, black, yellow and blue, basically all the primaries. For extra flare and shape don’t forget your petticoat! via.
Hair Styles and Vintage Accessories
Vintage hairstyle also depends on the era you are going for. Pin Up girl style is very well groomed and will be pinned perfectly.( Image via). It is acceptable to have a full fringe and it is a rarity that you will ever see a vintage girl with free flowing locks. Bows, feathers and simple hair slides are great additions to any vintage hairstyle. Be sure to match your hairstyle correctly with its era though! 1950’s will rock out a hair band and bandana style but will also see simple flower clips.
The 1930’s saw the influx of classic and sophisticated finger waves and simple hair clips. This era saw the rise of extreme eyebrow plucking. Eyebrows were tremendously thin which made for a more feminine look. Neutrality began to creep in at this time so make up was kept to cream, ivory and skin tones.
These are just a few hints on how to create a vintage look. Have a look at the images below and create your own personal vintage theme.
