Hi, I’m Hilary Arthur from, here in the studio to talk to you about how to dress vintage at middle age. So, the key to dressing vintage at middle age is really to choose one vintage item to wear at a time, and you can then update the look by adding in modern accessories. So, here we have this great vintage ‘80s dress. The dress has this really fun exaggerated puff sleeve, and then it has a peplum detail, and which was a big hot trend in the ‘80s and is seeing a major comeback right now. So, this is a really fun dress. And, the way to make sure that it doesn’t look dated or costumey is to update it with accessories. You want to avoid items that are retro-looking, like the red handbag. Or, you want to avoid a matchy-matchy look with the matching belt the dress came with, and the white shoes. So, here we’ve modernized the look and updated it with these key accessories. We have here the leather belt, which really adds interest at the waist, makes your waist look super tiny, and draws your attention right here. It’s this clean, modern leather belt with the gold buckle. And then, we have paired it with a really fun, modern bag that has this great graffiti detail. So, the belts and handbags do not ever have to match, but it’s nice that they complement subtly. Also, we’re right on trend by mixing the bold print of the dress and the animal print of the shoes. This is a great way to modernize your look and to avoid your vintage piece ever looking like a costume. I’m Hilary Arthur from, and that is how to dress vintage at middle age.
