STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Vintage Twist

One thing that I’ve learned about fashion is that every trend that is currently is style or has been in style has either been recycled, or will be recycled in the future. Despite the fact that different trends are always coming and going out style, there is still nothing more fun than incorporating vintage fashion into everyday ensembles. Reaching across decades, vintage fashion fuses with modern day-chic to create looks that are both nostalgic and reminiscent of long ago, yet fresh and current to today’s runway looks.

This Fashionista succeeds in pulling together an ensemble that not only has a retro vibe to it, but also is refreshingly modern and fun. The sleeveless denim top with lace is a nod to the denim shirts that grew in popularity in the ’90s, yet never seem to go out of style. The lace detailing gives it a very fun and feminine feel too! Matching the denim shirt beautifully, this Fashionista paired the denim top with a blue, cupcake-style floral print skirt, which also reflects the blue in the shirt. The shape of the skirt is perfect for accentuating the waist!

Completing this vintage-inspired look is a quirky and cute pearl and beaded necklace, and a lovely pair of sage green wedges. The wedges give the ensemble just the right modern twist to balance out the nostalgia presented by the denim, lace and floral print. And of course, no retro glam look would be complete without a killer pair of cat eye shades! This ensemble is perfect for any hot summer day.
