Q: I’ve always been drawn to the ’40s look but I don’t want to look outdated. Any suggestions?


August 29, 2011

The ’40s look is very much on trend, so it’ll be difficult to look outdated. That said, you don’t want to look like an extra from an old-time movie either, so don’t go vintage from top to toe! There are many ways to incorporate retro style into your modern wardrobe. The simplest route? Apply a slick of red lipstick, slip on a pair of peep-toe heels and add a detail like a great clutch bag, pearls or glam earrings. You could also belt a pretty blouse. And check out second-hand stores and markets for beautiful vintage dresses, then team them with modern hair (not too done) for a sexy, sophisticated look.
