Showcased in more subtle and refined ways, it is safe to say the 1900s are back with a bang. Seen in almost every show on the runway this fashion season the cycle is repeating itself from A-line skirts to fluted and flared hems, this year has condensed many a decade into its trends and they are here to stay for a while!
A line skirts in all shapes and sizes are also another contender of the 1900s with suede A line skirts definitely being one of the top go to pieces for this season.
Like many others, the 1900 trends are a great source of dressing inspiration for me, the flared pants are a piece of clothing that I have enjoyed wearing a lot. An item that can we dressed up or down making it extremely versatile. Pairing high-waist flared trousers with a graphic tee and a cropped denim jacket and sandal wedges would be a simple day time look that can be swapped with a cropped top and strap heels for a night out!
The shift dress is not only versatile but super comfortable and conservative. In my opinion the shift dress is one piece that is flattering on everyone and the fact that it comes in infinite colors and prints gives this piece extra brownie points.
I chose a simple white dress with black detailing which greatly added to the “mod” effect, who said black & white has to be plain and boring?!
I paired it with my go to Zara strap heels and a vintage sling bag. In all honesty a lot of my vintage dressing enthusiasm also has got to be due to my new short hair which I love! Definitely going to go shorter next time!
First, apologies for the terrible pun! (I know you laughed though)
There comes a point in my life, perhaps once or twice a year where all I can wear is black and white. I’m repelled by all other colours especially the bright ones for that time period.
This time I got stuck in this rut during what many call Spring however living at the Equator causes us to disregard seasons and hence we identify the weather by what it is; extremely hot and extremely cold.
The weather right now is pleasant despite occasional *everyday* floods, the weather during the day makes me want to pull out all sorts of skirts and dresses, yet most of the day time dresses I own are in bright colours and bold patterns, something I’m just not feeling right now.
This ended up being a style challenge for me and although exam season has brought lots of challenges for me this is one that I actually enjoy 😛
For this look I wanted to stick to the colour palette of Black and White but also wanted the overall look to be girly and vintage inspired and what better way to do that than with a flowy white skirt.
Choosing the skirt was the easy part but finding what to pair it with was kind of difficult, black crop tops made the outfit a little more dressy than I wanted which is ironic cause I’m usually overdressed wherever I go. Oops!
I found a sweater top that I even forgot having and think its perfect for a quirky ensemble! This top from Primark was originally plain black and I cross stitched the cat on it a couple of years back when animal print shirts were a thing (I still think they are! And if not, the should be :p)
I paired it with a pair of pointy black flats which played up the vintage-chic look and a light pink quilted cross body bag. The outfit was both classy and comfy, perfect for me👐
