LOOKBOOK: 4 WAYS TO STYLE A VINTAGE SHIRT

Hey beautiful, how are we all doing.
So we're back with another lookbook over a year later. I still can't believe that my how to style high waist trousers was the last look book on the blog. What can I say, when you take your own pictures and commute long distances for blog shoots then this happens.

Anyways, today I'll be showing you four ways of taking a basic vintage shirt from day to night. This shirt was previously styled in a more corporate look here.
Let's begin!

Look 1
I went for the most basic and clich├ęd option by wearing the shirt over a pair of skinny jeans. I then used a hairtie to incorporate the choker trend as a last minute addition to the outfit. And then I opted for my lace up booties.

Look 2
You can't go wrong with denim, hence I tied a denim shirt around my waist and added a pop of colour with my goto read satchel. You could always opt for a denim jacket instead.

 Look 3
This look would work for a more formal affair, perhaps a date night or even church. I just wore the shirt backwards as I did in this post. Paired it over my little black dress (featured here) with an obi belt and then my silver single sole sandals from Zara. You could always rock it without a belt and if your bold enough, the shirt as a dress but just to be on the safe side, wear a pair of shorts underneath.

Look 4

Last but not least I went for an everyday look. I paired the shirt with my khaki skirt styled here and here. Added a pop of Burgundy with a pair of H&M sneakers and then my cateye frames to keep things preppy.

Now you could always switch up the footwear to make the outfits more everyday friendly. Also notice how I incorporated several of the 17 wardrobe essentials listed in this post.  Never underestimate the power of a good vintage oversize shirt. There are still so many ways to rock the vintage shirt but let's leave it at this for now.
