AN UPDATED RETRO LOOK.
I love printed skirts, but right now I’m most excited about the fresh way to wear pleated skirts with retro florals!
Vintage floral prints are a thing now, and who would have thought how fresh and modern they look? There’s something so charming with this trend and with a few styling tricks you can make the 70’s-style inspired look cooler than ever.
Lightweight, pleated floral skirts look great with almost any top. Think about combining a pleated skirt with a basic T-shirt, a fitted cardigan, a slouchy sweatshirt, a breezy silk blouse… any top will go. Here, I styled my skirt with a puff sleeve T-shirt in an unexpected pastel lilac color. I chose this sweet hue, as it adds a perfect twist to the muted color palette of the retro skirt. So, my styling tip number one for the vintage floral trend, is to mix colors in a playful way to make the look more fresh and modern.
For a casual and trendy appearance you can complement the look with sneakers. If you prefer a more feminine look, try heeled sandals in bright colors as they will instantly level up your whole look. Think about bright sky blue, candy pink or lime green… these colors will make a perfect contrast for all kinds of retro inspired looks. Of course, if you’re not into colors classic black or a neutral beige is always a safe choice.
