Vintage Valentine

While I am no lover of pastel colours and excessively frilly things, today is Valentine’s Day nonetheless and I figured I should probably create a Valentine’s outfit to share with you. Fortunately, ’40s style utilized lots of deep pinks and reds which are festive but also appealing to my taste for the dramatic!Vintage Valentine
I started with a period-appropriate cable-knit jumper, and added a sombre black coat- the ’40s were a dark decade, after all. A gorgeous raspberry-coloured skirt and elaborate vintage jewellery introduce some spirit to the ensemble, however, and the pearl-embellished clutch softens the boxy cut of the coat. Oxford-esque shoes, a fur scarf, and red lipstick are wonderfully ’40s; and result in an outfit that is romantic and feminine without straying from my beloved 1940s aesthetic!
