Modern Vintage

Happy Sunday beautiful people and welcome back to Yanikeur's world! Hope you all had a blessed and busy week, but more importantly a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend to gear up for the week's challenges ahead. Coming to today's post on vintage dresses and embracing different, colorful prints, I'm seen wearing a royal blue A-Line dress here which comes with floral prints. The prints in my opinion make the dress stand out and are perfect to wear for a day-time event out with the ladies, women's tea parties, and other such classy occasions. Vintage isn't easy to wear but with an outfit like this, you would want to highlight the dress by adding the basic wardrobe essentials that don't draw too much attention, such as simple jewelry or solid colored pumps so majority of the attention of your outfit remains on the dress. You can use a basic belt as well to update the silhouette, cinching at the waist as I have done. Wearing vintage with style is about mixing it right to avoid looking like you're straight out of movie in the 50's. I feel the trick to keep your outfit balanced is follow a 50/50 vintage and basic modern pieces rule. Just like for this look I paired my printed dress with a pair of solid red color stilettos very minimal jewelry and make-up. Hope some of these tips help you for carrying your next vintage outfit and remember as long as you're confident, you don't have to worry too much about carrying off the look. Have a productive week readers and God bless!
