Styling a 1950’s inspired outfit with a modern twist

30 plus fashion blogger styles a 1950s inspired outfit

I do like the nineteen-fifties style fashions and would like to add a little more into my wardrobe, but for now, this is one of my favourite outfits of the style. These photos were actually taken on my birthday last year and I’ve resurfaced them to show you the outfit. If you like the 50’s era fashion, but can’t afford or find good quality vintage clothing from that decade, then putting together an outfit like this still has the right vibes, but is probably a bit more comfortable!….

The blush pink jumper is from Next. I love ruffles and I’m so glad that trend isn’t going anywhere. This line of a ruffle gives the top a bit of a modern twist to the look.

For an extra touch of prettiness, there’s also silver thread woven into the jumper for subtle sparkle and a bit of fun. Even when I grow up, I’m always going to like a little bit of sparkle!

A close-fitting jumper with a flared circle skirt is a classic 1950’s look. Rather than your usual zip fastening; this skirt is actually sewn onto a stretchy jersey waistband. This makes it very comfortable, and perfect if you’re about to have a big roast dinner, like we were!

I bought the skirt at Glastonbury Festival at a stall called Bohemia. It’s a lovely brand and when they came regularly to the festival I’d always head there to do a bit of shopping! Look out for it if you’re attending other festivals this year as otherwise it’s mail order from their website as they are based in Sweden.

It doesn’t notice from a distance, but there is a lovely floral design embroidered into the cotton of the skirt on one side. I love these details that elevate an outfit.

Although I was lucky with the weather that April, it was a still a little chilly so I wore brown leggings underneath. To be honest, the outfit would have looked better without them, but sometimes you just need to be warm!

I wore my brand new suede Converse trainers that Chris bought me for my birthday present. They’re in a beautiful blush pink colour with rose gold metal eyelets and aglets. I absolutely love them and have worn them loads since!

Shop the look:

PS. Do you know what aglets are?!

Styling a Pink Maxi Dress and Going all Jane Austen!
October 12, 2018
I’m not quite sure where the idea originally came from – it was probably just a few influences that all came together. First, I bought a maxi dress from Amazon to wear over the summer, and thought it looked a bit Pride and Prejudice. Then we happened to need to go to Bath for Chris to have his computer fixed at the Apple shop; and then I think I was inspired by the bookstagrammers of Instagram to borrow a copy of Northanger Abbey. And lo and behold, we have this fashion blog photo shoot….
Weekly wardrobe – gothic circus look for a beach walk!
October 10, 2016
Rain chose a walk on the beach as her family activity for her birthday, so yesterday afternoon we drove over to Brean and parked up past all the tacky arcades to as near to the cliff as you can get. It’s a handy carpark with a National Trust shop, cafe, and (most importantly) loos. Sunny and hot one minute and cloudy with a chilly wind the next, it was difficult to know what to wear. I opted for layers with a steampunk circusy vibe; and why not? ….

I bought this dress from a magic shop under the shadow of a pirate castle in Lanzarote when we were on holiday last year. By that I mean that it was one of those shops with a tiny front and a little plank door and you have to duck low to get inside. Then you find the shop is massive and goes back and back and back until it comes out onto another street entirely. Anyway, it was from there, but if you want to try and hunt it out out, the label says Elora…..
