How to do Vintage Chic



  • How to do Vintage Chic

  • Old school, classic yet with a very distinct personality – that about sums up vintage chic for you. Think Mary Kate Olsen or Sonam Kapoor, whose wardrobe resemble something your mom would have worn in her youth.
     
  • Luckily, this season borrowing your mom’s old garb is what fashion is all about – just sneak a look at the fall shows of Louis Vuitton, Prada or Anand Bhushan. And it’s not only the fashion houses that are going vintage crazy, Mad Men epitomizes 50s style, whereas Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays) from Glee could easily have time-travelled with her preppy juicy – coloured cardigans and pearls.
     
  • Adapt this fun, flirty trend to make it your own with tortoise shell glasses, delicate necklaces, booties or muted gold watches. Think classics like lace chain link bags and opera jackets or pointy shoes with bows - whatever you wear, remember to pull it off with that laid back attitude of yours.
