Going vintage with 1920s fashion is a great way to look unique in your prom, Halloween or themed party event. However, you can look even more elegant and stunningly attractive when you add a modern touch to your flapper dressing. Keep reading to learn how.
How to Mix and Match Vintage and Modern Fashion
A great way to look chic with your vintage dressing is to mix and match decade and modern fashion. The best bet is to keep it 50/50 vintage and modern. Here’s a typical example:
- Consider wearing a vintage top over a pair of modern pants or skinny jeans. You can balance the look with a modern sweater or trendy shirt. For dresses, you can achieve a more modern 1920s fashion by wearing your hair in a modern style and complementing your look with modern accessories.
- You don’t really have to be too loud with your pieces to make a vintage fashion statement. Put on a piece of jewelry or a piece of scarf over a typically modern outfit.
A great way to assemble your flapper clothing items faster is to visit online stores that offer vast selection of vintage-made but modern-inspired outfits. This alternative provides you with a more chic look in your vintage dress.
You should learn to complement your vintage-modern dressing by adding popular vintage items such as the feathered hats and scarf. Modern wide-brim hats and vintage turban hats are also good complements to your not-so vintage dressing. For scarves, you should go for silky ones and wrap the scarf around your neck.
And, you can decide to go completely vintage with your shoes by choosing the lace-up boots. Oxford flats are also great shoes for mixing and matching vintage and modern dressing to achieve a chic 1920s fashion.
