Vintage Inspiration

I do not often wear skirts (and never do unless I am going somewhere that merits dressing up), but this is the kind of outfit that really speaks to me. Despite its utilization of a skirt, I can picture myself wearing something like this to church or a meeting any day! With elements borrowed from ’40s, ’50s, and even ’60s style, this outfit manages to be striking and nostalgic all at once, while retaining an effortless elegance that is enviable. A houndstooth patterned skirt contrasts well with the camel coat, and the berry tones of the hat and blouse are refined yet arresting. A prim black bag paired with gorgeous diamond and gold jewellery continues the ladylike theme, and wartime-inspired T-strap sandals are the ideal choice of footwear.  I truly appreciate fashion that is wearable for the 21st century, but also nostalgic and vintage- and this look ticks all the boxes!Vintage Inspiration
