Styling a vintage skirts
Love the look of vintage skirts but don’t know how to style them?
Pouring over old pictures, vintage skirts are a cornerstone of 50s style. The humble pencil skirt is a stable in any wardrobe and even more of a key item in any vintage look, particularly those of you who have a rockabilly or pin up flare to your style.
If your style is more Bad Girl, your devoted to Dita’s style or besotted with Betty Page, it’s that Jayne Mansfield wiggle you’re looking to create or you just wanna have fun like Rizzo… to nail the look you need to have a great pencil skirt or 3 in your clothing arsenal.
We’ve got you covered.
Our V2 pencil skirt is cut with rear darts & zip. The front darts are cleverly hidden within the cut of the pockets. Yes, that’s right, these babies have pockets. Skirts with pockets rule & mean, while they’re not big enough to carry all of your life around, you can keep your keys, phone & card right on you without needing a bag. Made with stretch to move when you do, our V2 comes in simple block colours so they can work effectively throughout our wardrobe with all of your tops.
Here’s our breakdown of some super easy ways to wear, the looks they create & some of the times we might pick that outfit.
If you’re looking for a new but stylish comfortable outfit. We’ve got you.
