We’ve posted about our love for vintage clothes many times and we often wonder what it is about vintage that lures us in so much. We think it must be the fantasy and the romantic aura of vintage pieces, that makes us feel like we’re playing a part in an old Hollywood movie.
A similar effect we’ve grown obsessed with lately are ethnic prints. April is the month of international concepts of style! How do we know? Pick up any of the latest issues of fashion magazines and immerse yourself in a sea of beautiful prints and cuts with traditional wear vibes.
Miss Vogue Paris, April 2013
Clothes can often make you feel like you’re living in a fantasy of your own making; maybe that’s why we love them so much! The trick is not letting the “role” turn into a full on costume. Ethnic prints should therefore be worn intelligently, and why not make the outfit more interesting by throwing in inspirations from around the world?!
Vera wore an authentic Chinese gold and green blazer with a white buttoned down shirt, dark skinny jeans, golden toe flats, a gold and rope necklace and a frog ring.
Vera’s gorgeous blazer with its bold colors and intricate detailing is so attention grabbing that the rest of the outfit can be kept more minimalistic.
A white shirt and dark jeans make this outfit office ready.
Rony wore an Eastern European-inspired patterned dress, South American-inspired wool poncho cardigan, 70’s inspired heels, studded and patterned cuffs and a vintage gold necklace.
Mixing different prints both in Rony’s accessories and clothes made her outfit unique and interesting.
Wearing Rony’s dress with a knit pullover rather than a jacket or blazer dresses it down and makes it more day to day ready.
Even a plain white T Shirt can go amazingly well with that poncho that you got from Peru and never dared to wear!
