I was asked by Modcloth to create a vintage-inspired layered outfit perfect for this Autumn and, well, you know I can’t resist a challenge! We all know that dressing vintage couldn’t be simpler in the summer – all you need is a cute sundress, some great sunglasses and you’re pretty much there!
As the nights draw in and the weather turns though it’s oh-so-easy to slip back into bad habits: throwing on jeans and sweaters, lounging around in soft comfy PJs and really not making much of an effort. That’s exactly what I’ve done in response to the driving rain today! I need to give myself a kick and remember it’s easy to turn your summer wardrobe into a winter one once you grab yourself the right layers and a stylish coat!
Wearing a fitted cardigan (over a 50s-style dress turns it into the perfect outfit for autumn days, and if it’s feeling a little bulky just add a belt to emphasise that hourglass shape. Take a look at Modcloth’s range of cardigans here. Team that with a gorgeous belted coat (and a cute hat) and you’ll be looking fabulous all winter!
- Me, Myself, and Ivories Dress
- The Dream of the Crop Cardigan in Black
- Carefully Chosen Coat in Houndstooth
- Red, White, and Blues Dance Flat
- Retro Dollie Earrings
- Graceful Garb Hat in Two-Tone
- Buenas notches Belt in Red
Here are some of my other favourite extra layers for keeping cosy whilst still looking stylishly vintage this Autumn…
