Style Sessions: Part I11:30 AM
MODERN VINTAGEStyling Your Vintage Cocktail Hats Part I
Vintage hats can be something of the present and not necessarily the past, so dust of your cocktails, channel your inner pin-up and set your personal style apart from the rest!
I've had a number of vintage hats sitting in a hat box for quite some time, not knowing exactly what to do or how to wear them, this week I teamed up with my Closet Luxe partner, to bring an exclusive photo journey on how to joosh up your wardrobe during the summer, using vintage and cocktail hats.
Remember, style should always be classic however you don't have to follow every rule! Only the basics, ya know color, shape, silhouette, comfort etc. It shouldn't have to be a daunting task when donning something from the past, Chante and I found very fun and creative ways to stay true to our lifestlye whilst remaining in 2014.
