This warm weather has me feeling all sorts of Retro Vibes.
There is something so perfectly summer about a vintage tee paired with a retro color palette. It easy, chic, says vacation, begs for a road trip and encourages a little adventure.
Vintage looks are so totally on trend this season. Fashion designers from A to Z have hit the archives this season to give designs from days gone by a comeback. Gucci is gushing the retro aesthetic and Tory Burch based the whole season on interior decorator David Hicks designs from the 60s and 70s.
I personally am an avid vintage shopper but if you don’t have the patience to hit the thrift and vintage shops you can create the look with both designer and reproduced pieces as well.
The key to creating a fun retro vibe with color is zeroing in on the shades, patterns and prints of a particular era. I LOVE those mid-century modern greens, mustards, oranges and browns.
Let those colors flow through your look then incorporate more modern pieces to keep the look current and contemporary. Keep in mind it’s less about matching and more about complimenting.
Embrace the kitsch and cuddle up with the whimsy that’s what summer is all about! And always remember my #1 style tip: Wear the wrong shoes. I know it sounds silly but that contrast can make a look. Swap out your high heels for flat booties, your sneakers for high heels and your sandals for sneakers. The more wrong it feels, the more right it usually is.
