Winter Vintage Glam

Linnea White

The holiday parties may have passed, but Winter Vintage Glam never fades. The timeless touch of whimsical pieces and eye catching glam is a dashing combination. This outfit mixes vintage finds with contemporary brands flawlessly for a look oozing style with class!

We already know I have a thing for Winter Whites (from clothes to hair color), so when this vintage Angora sweater came into the shop last week, the swooning commenced, inspiring this entire outfit. Paired with a pair of Topshop tuxedo style jogger pants, sassy black heels, and this stunning feathery jacket, I was oozing sartorial elegance.

When the pieces are so effortlessly chic, accessories are meant to compliment, not overpower. After all, we're talking about Vintage Glam here. The longline jacket and the long necklace help contrast the cropped sweater to lengthen the neck and torso, making a curvier, shorter frame extra tall. A pair of medallion earrings pair fabulously with the velvet embroidered vintage clutch, and, of course, what's more retro than a classic red lip.

From Winter cocktail party, New Year's Eve party, Winter wedding reception, or just for a night on the town, this outfit is ready to just about any Winter soirée.

How to Dress for a Holiday Party

'Tis the season for a datebook full of holiday parties - from Secret Santa gift exchanges to office holiday parties, from black tie balls to a friend's house party, from going home for the holidays to New Year's Eve extravaganzas. Shop at Darling Boutique to get your wardrobe ready for the celebrations ahead without breaking your wallet! The shop is stocked with affordable pieces for the holidays, from consigned dresses and heels to locally made artisan jewelry. I love the vintage button studs by local artisan Pip's & Co., and went for a vintage-inspired glam look for that upcoming holiday party. Not all holiday outfit needs sparkles, shades of red and green, or a little black dress. The rich velvet and lace of this vintage dress evoke a winter wonderland. Grace your next party with a classic red lip and a stunning dress for a price you can celebrate!
