Vintage style is one of the iconic looks you may go for to look chic this spring. However, there’s a fine line between looking like stepping out from your grandmother’s closet and looking chic on your spring style. Raised in South Florida but now living in Brooklyn, New York, Keiko Lynn Groves is known for her chic vintage looks with creative twists such as color blocking, pattern mixing, and even quirky touches that might inspire your spring looks.
Stick to classy and neutral colors over earthy tones to keep everything chic.
Vintage clothes are more common in earthy tones and muted shades, but that will only make your style a bit outdated. To keep everything appropriate and wearable in the present time, select vintage ensembles in classy shades and neutral tones. Keiko likes feminine or romantic details as well as extreme ones such as muted palette, bold color, soft and flowy fabrics, and structured cuts. Like Keiko, you may opt for a lace top and a vintage skirt that will look breezy chic with a floral headband.
Play with vintage prints on your outfits.
Gingham prints, retro floral prints, and even chevron can make your spring style more expressive. Like Keiko, you may even mix prints by wearing a striped button down shirt and a graphic print floral skirt that will look chic and spring-inspired. She also likes to play with different color and texture combinations as well as layering tricks in remixing her clothes. Also, you may think of colorful patterns that will look a bit eccentric with a colored leather jacket like Keiko did. This way, you’ll make your vintage style this spring more creative.
Keep your casual street style chic yet effortless.
If you’re a fan of denim jeans and a plain tee, it’s time to add some feminine flair to your casual street style. Like Keiko, you may resort to a denim skirt instead of jeans or shorts that will channel your vintage vibe when teamed with a striped top. Keep in mind that a vintage style is always modest and feminine so avoid wearing revealing clothes. Like Keiko, you may layer a striped top underneath your denim jumper dress, and even a pair of tights that will keep your look vintage-inspired.
Update your vintage outfits with modern and playful accessories.
Depending on your personality, you may go for architectural accessories or even novelty ones. Like Keiko, you may keep your vintage gingham print dress breezy with a watermelon fruit clutch, making it playful for a spring look. Or, update your vintage shirtdress with a modern clutch and a pair of novelty shoes. By heeding these tricks from Keiko, you’ll make your spring looks vintage-inspired effortlessly.
