Lookbook: Glam Grunge

1. Push The Bow Out

A statement bow was a staple of many 1980s prom dresses - and what says 'Christmas' better than mimicking a (very glamorous) gift?

2. Sophisticated Separates 

OK, so number two on our list isn't a dress... but with a cashmere turtle neck, any brocade maxi-skirt has the instant look of a Met-worthy ballgown!

3. 1970s Velvet 

The fabric that was MADE for the season. The 1970s and 1980s were awash with statement dresses in soft, velvet materials that were warmand sumptuous.

4. The Power Sleeve 
If you're not a fan of swishy skirts, try a more sleek and modern silhouette by embracing the power sleeve. The 1960s and 1970s has plenty of maxi-dresses with batwing or fluted sleeves.

5. Santa Sweetheart 

Think Sandy before her transformation: A sweetheart neckline, ruffles and full skirt are a true vintage way to rock your festive outfit. You could always wear a prom dress with a tight-fitting jumper in a bold colour if you wanted to push the boat out.

6. Glittering Details

 A small, sparkling embellishment can draw the eye to the right place this Christmas. This vintage Bob Mackie beauty is uber flattering, as the detail cinches in the waist.

7. Victoriana! 

A newly popular silhouette involves high necklines, ruffles and sweeping long hems. Pair with ridiculously high heels
for a vibe that's witchy and eccentric!

8. Dripping In Gems 

Not for the shy and retiring, an all-over-glitz dress shout 'HOLIDAYS!' like nothing else. Come armed with a sewing kit though, because no one wants their sequins falling in the cranberry sauce...

8 Ways To Rock A Vintage Dress for the Festive Season

Nitya Flora Jacket

Naomi has an amazing blog that I've been following since I met her, about 6 months ago, but our constantly busy and clashing schedules mean we only just got around to shooting with each other!

Naomi's style is usually understated elegance or casual cool. She can't live without her figure-hugging black jeans or her pretty embroidered Zara shirt which she paired with a delicate black lace bralette to meet me at my studio.

What I found really surprising and fun was her willingness to embrace the quirkiest prints - she singled out a men's silk shirt with a Chinese monk print and jiggled it with glee - 'I love this! It's crazy! Why do I love this?!'

I really enjoyed how she adapted my more 'out there' garments to make them extremely wearable and on-trend. You can check out her blog here and her Insta here.  Enjoy her lookbook below!

The Mini/Micro Bag

The smaller bag is back! Styles from the early 2000s are back in a big way. It might not be the most practical, but for an evening out, what could be more effortlessly chic than a white shirt, dark jeans and a handheld bag - just about big enough for your phone and keys!

What To Pair With A White Shirt For Autumn/Winter

1. The Mummy

Layer up some bohemian jewellery with creepy bandages and golden make-up to channel the spooky, Ancient Egyptian ghoul.

2. The Magician 

Harlequin print shorts, a velvet cape and optional bunny in the hat! Everything you need to magic up a perfect outfit.

3. The Spooky Clown 

Inspired by IT, there are bound to be a tonne of clowns around this halloween! Rock stripy overalls with pom pom details and spooky harlequin inspired make-up.

4. The Hippy 

A classic - layer up flower power flares with a ridiculous pair of sunglasses and a poncho. If you look like you've come straight from Woodstock, you're getting the idea!

5. 1920s Flapper 

Check out Make Do And Vamp's tutorial (click on the image below) for this gorgeous 1920s style crown. Wear with a beaded drop waist dress and art deco inspired jewellery for optimal impact.

6. Margot Tenenbaum 

Fur coat and pastel colours = done! Probably the quickest fix costume on this list.

7. Cheerleader 

Oh I think that I've found myself a cheerleader! There are lots of vintage cheerleading sets hanging around online, and the best thing is that you can keep the outfits and wear the skirt and sweater separately for day to day looks.

8. Dorothy

We're not in Kansas anymore! Because here you can find ruby woo slippers, gingham check and adorable vintage wicker bags within the click of a button.

9. Prom Queen 
Layers of tulle and ruffles in ice cream colours look amazing for Halloween. This dress is a particular favourite! You can find some other Grease inspired options here and here.

10. Showgirl 

Embrace sparkles with a diamante bralette and ostrich feather headdress!

11. Amelia Earheart 

For fearless girls. Beige jodhpurs, a crisp white shirt, and flying leathers will complete this!
