Fashion Friday presents,
If you liked my previous post, Vintage Style: The Flapper Party Look you will fall head over heels for my upcoming post on the classic women’s tuxedo look.
I wanted to bring this look to you before fall approaches so you have all the things you need to recreate it on yourself…to suit your taste.
The femuline style derived in the 1930’s by the talented Marlene Dietrich (Marie Magdalene Dietrich) a German actress and singer. Back then the perfect suit was all about the cut and fabric – I think it still is to this very day.
I came across this sleek style myself while watching the flick Annie Hall with Diane Keaton and Woody Allen a few months back. Diane wore this look effortlessly in the 1977 flick. The next day I went out an bought two ties in the men’s section at The Bay. The Bay has a great selection of skinny ties [by the way] that any girl can work into her wardrobe.
I will be back real soon with this look, what to buy and where to buy it. You better believe I will be doing some hunting on la crème de la crème of Vintage Clothing Stores Online.
Don’t worry gents there is a post coming soon for you as well -it will be on what I think is the next big thing in men’s fashion – I have some ideas on what will be revived from the past. In the meantime check out my previous post, Men’s Vintage Clothing – Styling and Shopping List.
Be back real soon,
