Planning to join Female Daily Garden Party but haven’t got the idea about the wardrobe? Worry not; you still have several days to choose your outfit. Besides digging up your closet to find anything vintage, you might also browse in your mother’s or even your grandma’s too. But if you’re still clueless, let us help you get the idea about it through these steps:
1. Googling for “vintage style” images is the simplest step that gives you tons of ideas. There you can decide specific trend or era that interests you. Women style in the 1920s, 1960 or maybe 1980’s have their own characteristic that might inspire you. Not to forget, you can also check our article about Fashion Tempo Doeloe. After deciding the style, you may also modify it to suit you; for example you may dress like a pin-up girl with the polkadot-printed dress that isn’t too sexy or adding some items that represent today’s era to modernize your look.
2. Do you have any idol that comes from past decades? If yes, steal classic look from the actress or other other figures and adjust it with the items you already have; as example, putting on your little black dress with appropriate length to be worn in the garden party, creating a simple updo of your hair and adding Rayban sunnies to create the iconic Audrey Hepburn style. How about wearing bow-tie shirt with puffy arms then pairing it with high waist skirt and styling your hair in finger wave to get Lucile Ball look?
3. Don’t forget to accessorize. A silk scarf tied around the neck is an easy piece that gives vintage feeling instantly. Scarf tied as hairband also right for 1960’s hippies style. Strings of pearls will strengthen your Audrey Hepburn look. While vintage inspired jewelry like bold ring will look nice on your finger. Various styles of headpiece are not only suitable for Royal Wedding guests, but also become key pieces to vintage style.
4. Don’t forget that the right makeup and hairdo can emphasize particular style. For example, mod makeup with bold eyeliner, thick eyelashes and pale lips accentuate the 1960’s feeling, and so does the big hairstyle that suits your 1980s look.
