Unleashing the inner vintage vixen in you this spring…

To some fashion is a hobby to other people a career and to some as something that is no-existent. Over the years most women have never been moved by the way they look .With spring in the horizon, its high time women be concerned with the way they look. Spring has lots of events that require women to dress up and look stylish. When picking up outfits women should have two things in mind, to turn women green with envy and for men to just turn and stare.

Vintage clothing is not only stylish but it makes you unique and standout. However one should not make the mistake of wearing vintage from head to toe .It is always better to just use one vintage item, say for example a shift dress. The trick is to find that incredible dress that fits your body like a glove. You can dress it up or down in four ways.

1. You can rock your vintage dress to work
You can wear your vintage dress with a blazer, pair it with pumps or wedges as you will want to be comfortable the whole day. You can add some glamour to your outfit by adding a cuff and some chandelier earrings and a tote bag to seal your look.
TIP: Do not be afraid to use color, as it will go a long way in bringing life to your outfit.
2. You can also rock your vintage shift dress when you are going out for drinks with the girls
All you have to do is just to slip on your sky high heels, preferably ones with studs or bold colors. Add a stylish clutch bag and a statement ring and you can go out and paint the town red.
3. You can rock your vintage dress to a wedding.
The idea is to look different but stylish, because they are nothing that hurts more than wearing the same outfit as the next person. What you can do is to add a fascinator, matching heels, sunglasses and a clutch bag that big enough so that you can carry your camera and make up. You wouldn’t want to ruin the wedding photos with you smudged lipstick.
3. You can wear your vintage number to church
The trick is to look simple but elegant. So just add earrings, a watch and a stylish handbag and mid heel heels.

1.First of all pick out six outfits for the week.The five outfits will take you through from Monday to Friday and the sixth outfit is an emergency or just in case the weather cases or if you change your mind in the morning.
In these outfits make sure that they are diverse and are appropriate for the events,that will be taking place on that day.Pick out a shift dress,a pencil skirt,a pair of slacks,maybe a suit,a mid skirt and matching shirts or tops that will go with the slacks and the skirts and most importantly blazers and cardigans so that you do not catch a cold.Make sure you pick out different colors so that dressing up in the morning will not be dreadful.
2.Pick out 6 pairs of shoes that will match with your outfits.pick a kitten heel,a wedge,a chunky court shoe,a pointy pencil heel,pumps and a sling back heel.Pick shoes that are comfy and that will go with the events that you will be having on that day.if you are to have a board meaning don’t pick the pump but a pointy pencil heel,it will not only make you look great but make you feel powerful that you can conquer the world.
3.pick out your accessories.You have to pick up you earrings,bracelets,belts,wallets.Make sure these accessories do not clash with your outfit but they complement them.The should bring that whimsical charm to you outfit.
4.Pick out at least three handbags that will complement you outfits.The handbag is the cherry on top of your outfit.Pick bags that you will be able to fit all your stuff and not a tiny bag that will make you have to carry a plastic bag{so not appealing} if you are a working woman.A tip is to have cosmetic bag that will contain your makeup kit,wipes,gloss and tissues,that you will just remove from one bag to another and your wallet so that you do not forget anything if you are changing your bags.Also it is always an advantage to switch your bags the night before so that you make sure you packed everything.
5.Also decide on the type of hairstyle that you will want to do the next day,if it’s a pony tail make sure you know where your scrunches are,if you are going to tong or blow dry your hair,know where the dryer and the tong are.
Enjoy a stress free week with no ‘’closet crisis’’ and you are guaranteed that you will be early for work this week.
