All-black head-to-toe will never go out of style, but when it comes to vintage fashion the savviest dressers are eschewing block colours in favour of a more playful look. This is where prints and patterns come in. Here are our favourites and how to wear them.
Leopard print is classic, cool and sexy. How many prints can you say that about? Wear your leopard print coat with plain coloured trousers. Wear your leopard print dress with similar shade boots. Wear your leopard print top with red lipstick and a big and bright smile...
Florals are just fun. And they suit everyone. We matched our vintage kimono with a vintage Levi tee, jeans and trainers. Looks current and cute. Florals can be a clashing print too. A floral top looks fab with a different floral print skirt. Try it.
Don't be scared of geometric prints. They look stylish and striking. This two-piece DvF geometric print suit could be worn to work or to party. Geometric prints are surprisingly flattering too. People notice the print and that is it.
The most fun way to wear stripes is illustrated below. Wear stripes across for a jacket and then down for a dress. Sequinned stripes are even better.
