Transformed and readjusted with style
Borrow your granny’s dress, ransack into the old chest of drawers of your attic and bring life into an old and elegant suit.
Put a sense of whimsy and a pinch of creativeness and add some laces, gloves, a hat and a purse for girls. Wear moustaches, your grandpa’s waistcoat, a watch and a nice old pipe for men. And you are perfect to participate at the event!
Vintage style for women
Poodle skirt and flats
Sheath dress, poodle skirt, flats, Napa leather gloves and overcoat to the knee. These are some of the classic pieces you can find in the wardrobe of the perfect “lady”. In order to be vintage you can take inspiration from the style of 50s characterized by its sober femininity. Black sheath dress, soft pleated skirt and nuance: black and camelhair passepartout, brilliant emerald and sensual cherry red.
Vintage style for men
Clutch, scarf or change purse
Open your wardrobes, comb through chests hidden into your attics or cellars and you will definitely find a clutch, a scarf, a cap, a change purse or a bow tie belong to an ancestor or a distant relative. Put a bit of wax on your moustaches and you are ready to parade to the historical centre: that’s a blast from the past!
Do not forget to wear a plaid shirt rigorously buttoned up to the last button and closed with cuff link. And, of course, sustain your trousers with “comfortable” braces!
Make up and hairstyle for women, beard and moustaches for men
Make up, perfect skin color, black infallible eyeliner line and intense red lips are the rules of perfect make up in style of the 50s. And what about the hairstyle? You only need a chignon on your nape and two backcombed ringlets at your face sides to have an elegant vintage headdress. Do not forget the shoes! They are incredibly important: they are characteristic of that age and ready to be back to life at the feet of today women as artwork.
Men just need nice well-finished beards and a pair of moustaches: they will certainly live up to the vintage ladies!
