All women should have at least one outfit in their wardrobe that they feel like a million bucks in. For me, this outfit is one of those. Red is one of my favorite colors to wear. It’s shocking, it’s vibrant and it’s also a signature color of the designer of my dress today, Valentino.
As a lover of both vintage and modern fashion, I have found sometimes that nothing pairs better than a chic high fashion piece accented by some vintage accessories. My dress is modern and by Valentino, it is one of a grouping of long and short cape dresses their fashion house has produced over the last few seasons. My shoes are by Remix and are a 1930s style and my hat and gloves are from the 1950s-1960s era.
One great way to mix the two is with a modern dress (high fashion, or maybe it’s from a mall store but just as chic) and some vintage accessories. A hat is a great vintage accessory to bring your modern dress up a notch. For everyday wear, I would prefer a hat which is not fussy ( ie you have to worry about wearing it), a beret as I am wearing in the picture is ideal because it tends to stay in place and is timeless.
Gloves are not a practical everyday item for most women, but a hat with a pair of gloves is great for going to a wedding, a special event or a night on the town.
