A short time ago my good friend Trina from Retro Fashion is my Passion gifted me a pair of AMAZING vintage jeans! Omg and they fit perfectly! Thank you again T!!! I am so grateful and blessed to have such amazing friends and vintage sisters!
The first time I wore them was on Saturday's trip to the Katherine Hepburn Exhibit. I honestly am not too crazy about the cold, in particular freezing cold. Luckily it was pretty nice in the city on Saturday but I was still in heaven wearing my first pair of vintage jeans.
I got to thinking afterwards, wouldn't it be great if I knew what to wear with my vintage jeans? So I did just that. I took with me some change of tops to do a little trial run. I wasn't able to go to my last exhibit on that day but I plan to go the weekend before my birthday in January. Instead I used a photo taken from April too give you an idea of what I would have worn.
You can wear your cardigans with a white standard blouse or with a pattern/colored blouse to add some pizazz. You can also pair up your jeans this winter with a sweater like I did in the middle photo. This can be done with any decade-you will just have to add accessories (earrings, brooches, sweater clips, hats, etc) according to the decade as well as a hair style and you are all set to look fabulous this winter with your vintage jeans!
Another top you can wear is a vintage sweater/reproduction sweater, the kind that sits at your hip. I am thinking specifically of the one the amazing and talented Tasha wore in her recent post It's beginning to look like Christmas pullover time. Omg, I love her sweater and now it is on my "To Get" list. I do have to say the best time to look for clothes is off season. Begin searching for these fabulous vintage sweaters during the spring/summertime. I know I will!!!
What else do you pair with your vintage jeans during the wintertime?
