Vintage Valentines

After blogging about 20’s fashion yesterday I feel inspired, and because it is that time of year again, I thought may take a look at some vintage valentines day outfits, and write a wee bit about them….xoxo

1920’s

I know I was blogging about the 20’s yesterday but here is just a little bit of advice on how to give your valentines day a twenties twist! You could wear a beautiful pale pink pleated skirt, or a sequin dusty flapper dress out to dinner. Then accessories your 20’s inspired outfit with a beautiful clutch and/or a cloche hat. I mean why not go 20’s the whole period was about romance and elegance.

Wear a beautiful 1940’s inspired dress, or a look like Marilyn Munroe this valentines day. The 40’s and 50’s were the age when femininity was re-intoduced to fashion, and when women were back wearing dresses with fitted waists. It was also when they got rid of loose fitting clothes and replaced them with pieces that really accentuated their figures. So if you want to look both beautiful and unique this valentines day, go for a 40’s/50’s inspired look and flaunt your femininity. xoxo

1960’s

 The 1960’s was when mini skirts, false eyelashes and go go boots all became popular, so if you want to look funky this valentines then it is the decade for you. The 60’s was obviously one of my favourite periods for history, so to be honest I think a 60’s inspired outfit or dress would just be perfect. If you a teen or young adult then a mini dress or skirt may be more appropriate, because that’s who the fashion was designed for in the first place. So if you are inspired by the 60’s then I recommend paring a cute red mini dress with a pair of wedges/platforms and and a cute black jacket.

 Want to be bold and beautiful this valentines day, well an 80’s inspired outfit is for you! Everything from perms to shoulder pads were in style, so to be honest there aren’t really any boundaries. Untidy hair, bralets and spandex mini skirts were also very popular, so if you are going to a party or maybe out clubbing this February 14th the the 80’s are for you You could go for a beautiful red bodycon dress with a blazer (with shoulder pads) and a pair of matching red heels. P.S Don’t forget to curl your hair! 😛
