But for today's blog I picked Brigitte Bardot, as her 70's vintage style is so iconic and timeless to emulate. She's wearing pieces that you caneasily find and mix it according to your own needs. Throw to the mix the weather's unstable personality (or fall in other words) and this minimal vintage wool coat is essential for your everyday vintage inspired look. If you're like my friends, and this is the trick, I'd stop right there. It's a great start for a frightened, non-vintage lover to deep into the vintage fashion waters.
If, on the other hand, you own a winter coat, then add a finely vintage knit sweater like Hailey top to your vintage collection. This top is versatile, in a beautiful color and easy to wear with trousers, skirts and your favorite denim. But the most incredible and well-fitted vintage trousers that I have ever found, is this pair of velvet , low waist one (seen below is the green wool trousers.) I called it Becky as it has a great fit but not great hair. The fit (again!!!) dear vintage lovers, is amazing. Yes, the size is tiny. You can see it on our model, as it's exactly her size; it fits her perfectly.
Complete the look with a wool vintage hat and our vintage designer Dior sunglasses. But most of all, the trick to a beautiful outfit is your confidence ladies!
Looking forward to your comments. Is Brigitte one of your favourite vintage icons?
