STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Flashback To Fashion

There is nothing more enjoyable than an outfit inspired by your favorite decade. The joy of shopping is taken to another level when you snag a vintage-inspired piece that will help you pull off the look of a fashion time traveler. Some people might reserve decade-inspired ensembles for excessive theme parties, but what fun is that? You can easily incorporate your favorite elements of any decade into your everyday wardrobe without looking cheesy or over-the-top.

I love this Fashionista’s outfit because it is reminiscent of a ’50s housewife, but still looks completely natural and modern. She paired a white midi skirt from Francesca’s, a very on-trend clothing item at the moment, with a white and blue checkered Ralph Lauren oxford shirt. This Fashionista’s white, round toe pumps are also a throwback to the image of the quintessential housewife that prevailed back in the day. I love her charm bracelet from Alex and Ani because it adds a modern element to the ensemble.

My favorite piece about this Fashionista’s look is her pearl necklace, which is actually a family heirloom. Nothing completes a decade-inspired outfit like an actual piece handed down from a great woman who lived through it. If you’re ever lucky enough to score a vintage fashion item, don’t be afraid to show it to the world and make it your own!
