Guest Post: Vintage Looks on the High Street

I'd like to welcome today's blogger, Debs from Bang on Vintage. Take it away Debs


 


I love Vintage and I love the British High street. I like to combine my affordable High Street wardrobe with quality Vintage jewellery and accessories. My love of Vintage led me to open www.bangonvintage.co.uk  an online store selling Vintage Jewellery and accessories and my style blog www.bangonstyle.blogspot.com blogging all things Vintage and High Street.


For those that would like a Vintage feel to their wardrobe but are too afraid to stray from the High Street, here is my pick of affordable dresses that will work every Vintage era in style and shape.


 


1940's


 


As War time rationing took over ladies dresses were tailored closer to the body, hemlines were just below the knee and skirts were medium full.



Try this Peach Floral dress from Topshop £50, its shape is so pretty and great for summer parties.


 



 


1950's


 


In the 1950's sleeveless outfits were revived from the 20's and tailoring was very important.


 


 


This belted shirt dress from Oasis £50 works all these 1950's elements and is a great staple item for work or play.


 



 


1960's


 


It was all about the mini shift dress in the 1960's and they were bright and vibrant.


 



 


This Orange crochet shift dress from Topshop £68 is bang on for the 60's and simple and chic to wear.


 



 


 


1970's


 


Think bold patterns and maxi dresses for the 70's.


 



 


This Peacock maxi dress £30 by Sugar Reef at Dorothy Perkins is a stunning way to work the 70's vibe.
