How to Style a Vintage Dress?
The first thing you should consider while selecting a vintage clothing is the fabric. A low quality fabric is a big NO, as it can’t be made stylish even if you have a clever choice of accessories. The vintage cloth fabric should be of high quality and try to avoid those with in built embellishment, since it can mess up the whole look when we choose matching accessories.
Here I have chosen a Vintage Sleeveless High Split Shirred Solid Long Maxi Dress. The fabric is not too thin or too thick. It has a little bit of layering on one side. This one is a plain sleeveless dress that reaches up to the ankle length with an O-shaped neck. By choosing the right accessories, we can turn this dress into multiple styles.
Girly Girl Style
This style embraces the femininity and make you look fabulous even making you kinky. For a girly girl style you have to take care from top to bottom. It includes keeping a perfect hairstyle, pretty polished nails, light or feminine makeup and last but not the least to act girly. To give a girly appearance you can pair the Vintage Sleeveless High Split Shirred Solid Long Maxi Dress with a couple of items. A girly girl style mainly consists of lots of jewelries like chains, earrings, bangles, bracelets, anklets etc.
Since bold and tacky footwear create a tomboy feel, we should completely avoid that type of footwear. Stick to some simple sandals like Metal Beaded Bohemia Clip Toe Elastic Flat Sandals.
Rock Chick Style
If you are done with the minimalist and feminine style, then it’s time for you to try the rock chick style. It is adding a bit of boyish charm to our feminine outfit. While planning for a rock chick style you have to give more importance to the footwear, bags and jackets.
These accessories will give that tacky and bold look. And for jewelry, minimal ones like small earrings or chains or a watch will be a great choice. Pair it with an Ethnic jewelry necklace, a long sleeve jacket, and flat shoes.
This one is the most accepted style among many women. Casual style mainly emphasis on the comfort of the person wearing the outfit. With minimal embellishments or accessories, this style could give a cozy & cool look, even without making you look like old school. To give a casual style to the maxi dress, pair it with a stylish waist belt like the Lady Leather Thin Narrow Bowknot Waist Belt, a simple leather bracelet and a comfortable work shoes
It is similar to the rock chic style, but instead of the tacky accessories, we could choose some minimal ones. You can pair the Vintage Sleeveless High Split Shirred Solid Long Maxi Dress with Handmade Needle Pin Buckle Waistband, Black Lace Pearl Hollow Flower Choker Necklace and a perfect Sexy Pointed Toe Shoes.
The right choice of accessories can transform your outfit from dull to fab. It can also expand your wardrobe because you can achieve variety of looks by changing the accessories.
