Vintage inspired details - such as a feathered hair comb or a bow-adorned pair of booties - can really set the mood of an outfit. Case in point: we built a sophisticated, feminine look on the base of a somewhat masculine structured foundation of clothes. Here’s how to get the vintage-inspired look:
1. Start with a set of structured basics: a white button-down shirt and a pair of tailored trousers.
2. Add a well-cut jacket over the button-down shirt. Note the half sleeves on the black and white checkered jacket - and how the three pieces work together to create a look that’s at once easy and buttoned-up.
3. Give the look a feminine touch with a hair comb adorned with feathers and netting - and a pretty pair of boots featuring tailored bows.
