Dress your 1880’s-style women’s clothes in a way that’s classic, but with some modern touches, and look for ways to keep it timeless.1.
Vintage Clothing: A modern take on old-fashioned styleThe women’s style is the essence of 1920s and 1930s women.
As the fashion designer Victoria Bridget Scott noted in her book, The Victorian Women’s Clothing Guide, there was an unspoken rule: if you don’t know how to wear it, it doesn’t belong to you.
So if you want to keep a classic look, it’s essential to wear something from the 1890s, or even earlier.
“The style that we want to have is a classic, very elegant, almost a feminine and sensual style,” said Tracey Wigfield, a designer who has worked on the show since 2006.
“If you have to be dressed like a lady, it has to be classy, it must be a little bit more feminine.”
That means wearing a plain, plain blouse with a little embellishment.
You don’t want to look like you’re in a Victorian era dress; you want it to look contemporary, but not to look too much like 1920s style.
“We don’t like the idea of dressing like a woman who’s not really a woman,” Wigfeld said.2.
Wear a little more than a button up in 1920s-era dress If you are not a fan of the button up, or any other Victorian style, you can still be stylish in your 1920s clothes.
Wigfields said the button-up is still a favorite of her because it makes the dress look contemporary and is still comfortable to wear.
If you don’ t want to wear a button-down, try an open-neck shirt, a simple button-upper, a tie, a jacket, or just plain old pants with a skirt.
The pants and skirt don’t have to match exactly.
“I like to wear pants that I don’t think are traditional, but are something you can pull off and wear,” she said.3.
Try an oversized, vintage skirtThe 1920s had an obsession with a certain sort of skirt, and it’s not hard to find a 1920s vintage style.
But you need to consider the age of the skirt.
“It’s important to look at the fabric, the design, the size of the fabric,” Wrigfield said.
“That’s where the classic Victorian skirts come from.”
If you wear a 1930s skirt, it’ll look a little too big.
But if you wear an old-style Victorian, you won’t look out of place.
“You can wear something that looks very modern, but it still has that vintage feel,” Wiggfield said, adding that a Victorian skirt is always timeless.4.
Avoid a too-tight dress The 1920s didn’t have the same level of tightness in women’s styles.
But there are still some styles you should avoid: “If your skirt is too tight, you look like a girl in a dress,” Wigsfield said with a laugh.
“There’s nothing wrong with that, but you need something a little less tight.”5.
Wear your hair long and be careful of dyeing It’s a big no-no in the 1920s to dye your hair, but many women in the show wore extensions.
And if you have a long hair, try a long-sleeved skirt, or a long, flowing shirt.
If not, you should keep it short and be cautious about using too much of your hair.
“A lot of the ladies, the longer you can wear it without dyeing it, the better,” Wiggs said.6.
Don’t forget to take your makeup seriouslyWigsfield advises women to take makeup seriously and make sure they have a lot of time to do their makeup.
“When you’re getting dressed up, it could be an hour and a half or even an hour-and-a-half, so you want everything to be done properly,” she told ABC News.
“Your makeup should always be clean and flawless.”7.
Be mindful of your skin tone, especially your faceIt’s not a bad idea to wear your hair in a ponytail, but if you do, make sure you’re wearing a nice, soft one.
The 1920’s were all about wearing a bit of makeup, so it makes sense to wear makeup that will help you look your best.
“Don’t forget the face and the lips are the most important things you look for,” Wiesfield said about looking your best with makeup.
She also advises women, especially women in their 20s, to take care of their skin.
“Make sure your skin is nice and smooth,” Wiveson said.8.
Wear something casual, like a blouseA blouse is a great way to keep up with trends, but sometimes it’s a little out of fashion.
If that’s the case, it can
