Posted on May 14 2018

How To Wear Vintage With Modern Fashion
With Shake and Stir Festival in Southbourne coming up in June we were inspired to try out some vintage pieces so we teamed up with Vicki from This Is Vintage Dorset (another local business in Southbourne) to show how we both love to mix and match vintage with modern. So if like us you love vintage but don't want to end up looking like you're in fancy dress, try our handy style tips.  
When wearing a vintage piece from one decade, make sure the rest of your outfit, including your hairstyle, is from a totally different decade for a modern update that suits your own style.Vintage Sailor Trousers With Modern Tee, Sneakers & acts.
We've styled 1930's style Sailor button front trousers with a foil snake skin print t-shirt,  choose an of the moment bag like this one from Nooki and iconic Woden sneakers from Denmark, accessories with a classic Elie Beaumont watch with its cool oversized face and contemporary silver jewellery.
