Vintage Summer LookBook

Vintage clothing is so popular now that I feel like it's actually more valued than designer labels - it feels more impressive and thrifty and cool to say that you're wearing a genuine 60's dress than Prada. Vintage clothing ranges in prices with some pieces costing pennies for an absolute gem, to thousands of pounds for spectacular pieces. 
I like vintage clothing because I feel like it comes with a story which you can make up, or sometimes the seller can actually tell you a little bit about the piece. I was very lucky that I took a few beautiful items from my mum before she took them to a charity shop, and I thought I would do a mini vintage lookbook for you guys if you wanted to get some inspiration on how to wear vintage clothing this summer!

what i'm wearing: vintage white lace set (was my mums when she was very young) // scarf worn as a headband Inherited Grace Vintage // shoes Topshop

This is probably my favourite outfit of this lookbook - I love this white lace two piece, it's so summery and crisp! I have taken this off my mum years ago and I wear it pretty much every summer. It's also great deconstructed - sometimes I use the top to wear with a jumpsuit or as a summer jacket, and the skirt looks great dressed up or down!
This time I chose to inject a some colour into the outfit with a vintage green chain printed scarf which I wore as a headband, red shoes and a pop of red lipstick - perfect outfit for a casual weekend in the countryside!

what i'm wearing: vintage floral dress (was my mums in the 90's) // floral crown Topshop // boots* Shoe Zone

I absolutely love this dress - I wear it all the time in most seasons (except winter maybe, but I have done with chunky knitwear and cable knit tights before) this was another piece my mum gave me. I think it's from the 80's/90's and when I first got the dress it had huge shoulder pads but I removed them because I didn't feel the dress shape benefitted from them in any way. I also placed the black ribbon you see running down the middle - originally it had a white shoelace kid of cord running through it.
I love this dress styled with tough boots - it's kind of grunge and reminds me of Courtney Love's style which was huge in the 90's.

what i'm wearing: vintage leather bomber jacket from the 80's Xanadu in Hastings // dress* Lidl // shoes Topshop // sunglasses Primark

My last outfit is my latest purchase from a weekend away in Hastings (you can read about it here) - an 80's white leather jacket I found in the cutest vintage store. If I had some more time in there, I reckon I would have walked out with bags full of stuff!
I love this jacket because it goes with pretty much everything, and I can just throw it on with a t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans for an immediate style transformation.

  2. Great outfits, they all look really nice on you! Love the locations too. The only vintage thing I own is a pair of Levi's 501 jeans and a dress my grandma made but I can't wear it. Would be fun to visit an actual vintage shop.
