HOW TO GIVE THE RETRO VIBE + TIPS ON STYLING VINTAGE

Retro Vibe

Hi guys, welcome to my first blog post, YIPPEE!,

Honestly, I have wanted to start my fashion blog a long time ago and it all started on my Instagram (kindly check here, so we can interact more).

So, I felt there is need for me to have an extension that could allow me to write more about my styles and the motivation for my looks which was what gave birth to my blog.

My style is a little bit of every and anything although there has to be a unique touch to it. Don’t be surprised when you see me gearing towards sporty wears, girly looks, a few tomboyish vibes, vintage and retro.

Speaking of retro vibe, it has a way of taking me back in time. In fact, it could sometimes be vintage gowns paired with retro accessories. Although, there are different ways of going back in time because I feel it all comes down to the vibes you are getting.

For instance, on this beautiful day, I truly felt transported back to the 50s (probably a great work-wear combo).

The dusty pink pant together with a species of the brown shirt (comment below what color you think the shirt is ?). My gorgeous Ankara head-wrap complimented the outfit so well and a touch of gold hoops bag.

RETRO VIBE

Locating the right retro vibe in anything and everything is quite simple. Below I will share some of the tips that has really helped me in styling;

  • High waist trousers: This allows for that “slim waist illusion” (Newlook has some that wont break the bank). The trick to getting that effortless and classy addition is to embrace over size pants. This can be achieved by going 3 sizes higher than your normal size. For instance, denim or pants including embellished trousers.

 

  • Accessories: Sometimes all you need to bring an outfit together and give off the vibe is the accessories. It could either be strapping that belt around your waist (Asos collection of belts make me drool), adding hoops earrings or vintage rings, vintage sunglasses, head-wraps, bags that subtly scream retro vibes. The lists are limitless because accessories are huge vibes on their own and can speak their own gorgeous languages when combined uniquely.

  • Clothing and Shoes: No amount of emphasis can be laid on the simplicity and stress-free vibes shoes and top create themselves. The pattern, color, cut, details should in one way or another speak the vibes you are trying to express.

  • Lastly, remember you don’t have to break the bank to get that stunning look. Look around you, you can identify your own inspiration through your parents, sisters and spouses wardrobe. Trust me when I say it will appear better on you.
