Spring Summer Fashion Formula #3: Accessorize with Vintage Inspired Details
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

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.

How would you incorporate vintage-inspired details into an outfit?  Share your style with us in the comments!

    What a great take on modern-retro! My favorite vintage-inspired details fall into the sexy-secretary realm: Spectators, big-button cardis, and fishnets. Meow!
