I have always been a huge fan of old movies. I’m talking old black and whites. I love them, I also love the fashion from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Everyone took so much appreciation into their looks. I adored the men in their dapper three-piece suites and fedoras, and the women in their ornate hats, gloves and heels.
I think about fashion now and it’s amazing but I often revert back to the days of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s and take some inspiration to add to this day and age.
I had been digging through a ton of boxes looking for photos of my grandparents when they were younger so I could frame up along with other family photos and came across so many great photos.
I only have one scanned but it is my favorite.
This is one of my favorite photos of my grandparents. I love my grandfathers letter sweater and fedora and my grandmothers ensemble with the pop of color belt, striped shirt and her hat.
Above is my take on some vintage looks for right now.
On the Left: I loved the look of the wide leg pants that were worn in the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s and the romantic blouses the women wore. It is a look that is still very much a wearable look today. I paired it with a chunky vintage inspired heel, and of course a Chanel quilted bag. Don’t forget a gorgeous red lip and rep nail. A trade mark on the times which is very much a timeless look.
On the Right: I adore this skirt and jacket. The jacket is so sexy and I think the blouse is perfect but I also think a tight corset underneath would be so cute and give more attention to the jacket. An envelope clutch, platform t-strap and a red lip to draw it all in.
