Fashion is fun...

Fashion is fun! There are so many different fashion styles and trends, but the real delight is in enjoying what you are wearing. Even though your first love might be vintage, you don't have to wear pure vintage clothes, you can mix and match modern clothes with vintage twists and accessories.

 Mix and match colours and styles
Fashion shouldn't be about following the latest trends and styles, fashion should be about finding your own trends and styles, clothes and colours that really suit you. You don't need to copy what everyone else is doing, looks that you see on Instagram, or in magazines, you can find your own fashion style. Develop your own confidence to make your own choices of what to wear. If you are wearing the right clothes, clothes which are comfortable, and that you feel confident in, it will make a real difference to how you feel. You can really have fun with this, with exploring clothes and fashion trends and finding your own style, whether this is in a big department store, a small boutique shop, at a vintage fair, or online, where you can find really original pieces. Mix and match colours and patterns, and clash them together. You are the one setting the trends.
Classical twists
But, if clashing colours and patterns is not your style, and you prefer a classical, elegant look, then this is when the beauty of vintage comes in. Think of Audrey Hepburn and her iconic look, use this as inspiration. It is always going to be fashionable and stylish with a beguiling appeal. You can make this classical, iconic look your own, by putting your own little twist on it. Instead of white pearls, use a string of black pearls, or even a bright plastic bead necklace. Wear a bright neon scarf with a classical suit or dress, perfect for that Instagram picture.
Vintage handbags
A good way to find a signature style of your own is a handbag. It's so easy to just use a big handbag and stuff everything in it, but this will totally ruin an outfit's look. A true vintage handbag is a necessary indulgence to buy at a vintage fair, or online, and it's worthwhile finding a handbag that really suits you. A handbag is such a personal thing, it will quickly become your signature accessory, and style talking point.
Fashion really should be fun! You don't have to be constrained by the trends of the moment, that change so quickly. Find your own style and confidence, whether this is with bright colours and clashing prints and patterns, such as polka dots and animal print, or in a more classical style with your own twists of vintage jewellery and handbags.
