Vintage style is one of the most iconic looks yet challenging to pull off as you can easily look like stepping out from your grandmother’s closet. Raised in South Florida but now living in Brooklyn, New York, Keiko Lynn Groves is a style blogger known for her vintage looks with creative twists that might inspire your fall style. Whether you’re a fan of girly styles, preppy look, pattern mixing, or even edgy touches, keep on reading to scoop some of her tricks.
Embrace vintage and preppy ensembles.
Tiered skirts, jumper dress, peter pan collared blouse, puffed sleeved tops and such are some of the vintage and preppy ensembles you may go for to look chic this fall. But, keep those fabric choices in mind as wool, tweed, and neoprene are more season-appropriate in the colder months over chiffon, cotton, and mesh. Like Keiko Lynn, think of a collared top teamed with a jumper skirt and fall boots, or even a gingham shirtdress that can look fall-inspired with a denim jacket and tights. If you’ve found some summer pieces in your closet that you still wish to wear this fall, simply wear them with a jacket, blazer, or coat, as well as a pair of black tights and fall boots to make them appropriate.
Go for a color-coordinated look to modernize your vintage style.
You may actually add a pop of color to modernize your vintage outfit, or simply go for a coordinated color scheme. Like Keiko Lynn, think of an embroidered red jacket teamed with a red handbag and sandals that will surely pop in an all-black outfit. Or, think of a neon yellow belt and a printed handbag that will add some modern feel to your vintage outfit. If you’re not a fan of bold colors, simply stick to the hues of camel, brown, and tan that can make your vintage style more fall-inspired.
Incorporate some vintage prints or even mixed patterns on your fall style.
Gingham, retro floral, polka dots and such are some of the vintage-inspired patterns you may go for this season. Like Keiko Lynn, you may even go for a mixed print on your outfit, providing that the colors of your patterns are in the same hue including your bag and shoes. Or, simply pick a vintage-inspired print that will surely pop in a plain outfit.
Layer your fall pieces in a vintage way.
Vintage style is known for relaxed and preppy style so skip those bodycon dresses and miniskirts that won’t look vintage-inspired. Like Keiko Lynn, embrace a-line silhouettes, fit and flare dresses, shift dresses and such that can still look feminine and chic this fall season. By heeding these simple tricks, you’ll be able to get that vintage style effortlessly.
