Vintage Style with Lace Affair

Vintage style is what we love here at Lace Affair! Whether it’s the sharp tailoring of the 1940s, the full ladylike silhouettes of the 1950s, or the bright minis of the 1960s we believe that there is a vintage style for every lady! Our vintage inspired clothes often express many of these retro elements in different ways. Here’s a look at some vintage pictures and our corresponding styles to show you how to get vintage style in a modern way!

A Pop of Color: Spring Accessories

Spring clothes are fun and flirty but you can’t forget about the accessories too! Pops of color can enhance any outfit and with the right bright accessories you can take your Winter wardrobe into Spring. Here are some of our favorite vintage inspired accessories to compliment your warm weather style!

Start out with a statement necklace to dress up a T-shirt and jeans or a pretty floral dress:

If it’s still a little  chilly out top your outfit off with a floaty Spring scarf! For retro flair tie a thinner scarf around your neck or wear it in your hair or as a sash:

Try dangly earrings in tropical colors to spice up any outfit:

If you feel like going more subtle or low-key choose small nature inspired studs for a hint of quirky color:

 Now that you no longer need gloves it’s time to wear unique statement rings! Wear one for subtle style or pile on a few for a night out with the girls:

1, 2

Cinch the waist of your favorite dress with a colorful Spring belt! Or belt a cardigan to give you a more feminine shape:

Switch your Winter purse out for a brighter Spring version. Choose a smaller crossbody purse to keep your hands free while you’re enjoying the outdoors:

Spring weather is notoriously fickle so have some cool and colorful sunnies on hand for the bright days and a fun sassy umbrella for the Spring showers:

All it takes is a little pop of color to really make it feel like Spring and brighten up your day! What’s your favorite Spring accessory? Check out our full accessories collection here.

DIY Adorable: Hair Bow Tutorial

 

With Easter and just Spring in general finally coming up we are looking forward to pastel colors and delightful dresses! What better to pair with a pretty dress than an adorable hair style? We loved this cute bow hair style so much we had to try it out! It took no time at all so it’s also a pretty easy style to master. Here’s our step by step guide:

 

Step 1: Gather front pieces of hair from both sides of your face and bring them together behind your head.

Step 2: Begin putting your hair into a ponytail using a hair elastic. The last time you pull your hair through the elastic only pull it half way through creating a loop.

Step 3: Separate the loop into 2 equal parts and twist them a little so that they lay flat against your head like the loops of a bow.

Step 4: Pin the 2 loops of your bow on the underside to your head using bobby pins.

Step 5: Take the ends of your hair left over from making your ponytail loop and wrap them around the middle of your bow and pull them through your hair behind the ponytail elastic so that they make the middle part of your bow. Pin the ends with bobby pins underneath the bow.

Voila! You now have a perfectly pretty hair bow to pair with all your Spring favorites!

What do you think? Would you wear this bow-tiful hair style?
