Every year I seem to struggle with knowing how to dress when it gets colder. I think there's a lot to be said about layering the correct way and wearing jeans in a way to make them look vintage (although, to be fair jeans are vintage, so I don't get why people get so uptight about vintage girls wearing jeans when they want to)! Here are few images to get started on...
Woollen circle skirts teamed with boots is a wonderful way to still wear the classic 1950s skirt but bring it into autumn/winter by wearing a heavier fabric. Greens, browns and reds are also a classic!
Fur! Any vintage girl knows how important fur is when completing an outfit for the colder weather. I much prefer real fur and can't stand fake fur. Personally, I think since the animal has been dead for about 60 years, then what's the harm?!
Capes! I've yet to actually own a cape but I'm determined to buy at least one this year! For when a coat just feels too boring...
Wooly tights, thick socks, boots and open-toed shoes! The most wonderful combination!
Coats made from check/tartan/plaid fabric! A classic (I've worn that word out now...) fabric for autumn/winter.
Cowl necks! So cosy and warm! A bit more of a modern twist, but can look wonderful teamed with vintage! (Besides, the second photo is from the 1980s and I'm planning to buy the knitting pattern for it!)
And lastly, jeans! This is a perfect example of how to team original vintage with the modern skinny-fit jeans! And those brogues! A stylish choice of footwear for the season.
