A pop of sparkle, just the right amount of shine — there’s no better time of year to add that extra bit of something to an outfit. But just how do you stand out in a festive sea of gorgeous velvet and lovely sequins? By choosing a truly remarkable — and storied — vintage piece as your main focal point. Vintage has been a part of my closet — and my life — for as long as memory serves. When an event looms on the horizon and the time comes to figure out what to wear, vintage has always been my go-to choice.
A piece with history… a nearly 100% fail-proof way to ensure your look will be completely unique. The launch of our latest Vintage Loves collection — Egyptian Revival — has me feeling truly inspired for the holidays. and today I’m sharing a few of my favorite pieces from the collection and how I’d wear them:
Long cocoon coat, sweater & mini skirt, loafers & thigh highs… this is a staple look in my winter wardrobe and one that I have a tendency to recreate on a near-weekly basis. I love the flippy hem of this black vintage mini skirt, and paired with lots of texture and shine, it can be easily worn from the office to a holiday happy hour.
Vintage pieces offer the perfect opportunity to mix and match texture and shine. Try a beaded top paired with a bold pink jacket for your next holiday party or potluck.
For a more casual look, take an ethereal dress into cooler weather by layering it over destroyed ankle skinnies and a colorful bra. This is also the perfect way to make those summer dresses stick around for just a little while longer.
Do you have a favorite piece from this incredible collection? I’d love to know!
