As an only child, I spent a lot of time playing by myself. One of my favorite things to do was to play in my mom’s jewelry. It made me feel stylish (because my mom was such a trendsetter back in the day) and special (because I felt closer to her). Now, I still find myself drawn to statement vintage jewelry and other accessories from 'back in the day'. The quality is generally much better, almost no one has anything like it, and, depending on what it is, it can be passed down from generation to generation. Here are some cool ways to incorporate vintage accessories into today's style:
1) Add a pair of statement earrings to a basic outfit for added flair.
Wearing jeans and a t-shirt? Throw on a pair of bold, statement earrings to dress the look up and create a statement that brings the attention from your body to your face.
2) Spice up your hair routine with a vintage scarf.
Does unpredictable weather make wearing your hair down a hassle? Then put it up in a cute ponytail or bun and tie a vintage scarf around the top of it. Create added interest by tying a bow on the knot at either the back of your ponytail or the top of your head.
3) Grab a statement bag with each outfit.
You have to have something to carry your money and your phone in. It might as well be a cute handbag! Try a small one that you can carry in your hand in a bold color or texture for a look that's just right for the fall.
