Vintage accessories are such amazing finds at thrift stores or consignment shops. Finding that perfect little beaded bag is like finding gold to the vintage addict. If you are looking for some vintage accessories to accent a look for your next event, here at Faviana we know just what pieces you need. We looked into our favorite accessories to give you just a touch of vintage glam, and can work with a casual or formal look.
Vintage Accessories: Hairpieces
For a subtle but beautiful accessory for your hair, search your local thrift shops for a broach or clip to tuck into your updo. Make it as glitzy as you want, or stick to pearls for a classic look. If you want to stick to the vintage look, try an updo that features old Hollywood curls at the crown, or try teased curls for a messy glam look. All this look needs is some elbow gloves and it will look like you walked right out of the Great Gatsby. Make Daisy proud!
Vintage Accessories: The Bag
Vintage bags are coveted and beautiful vintage additions to any evening look. 20’s themed bags were all about pearls and jewels, and were on the smaller side. Try searching out a pearl encrusted clutch for a vintage-y vibe, or a floppy cross body bag if you are looking for something more user-friendly. Make sure you stick to your theme when adding accessories. For example, if you are wearing gold jewelry, be sure your bag also has gold, not silver.
Vintage Accessories: Earrings
Vintage earrings could be either small and simple, like a set of pearls, or they could be big and glamorous. Depending on your look, small pearls might be the perfect addition to complete your look. If earrings are going to be your accent piece, why not go all out! It’s all about the bling and all about the sparkle, so find what works with your look. Pearls and crystals make for a classic glam look.
Vintage Accessories: Gloves
From lace driving gloves to silk elbow gloves, every Hollywood actress of the 20’s had a pair. Gloves give you a queenly appearance, and are a fun way to add a unique accent accessory to your look. If you have a strapless gown, this is the perfect opportunity to wear gloves. If you want to try out gloves but are a bit tentative, try a simple lace glove with a more casual outfit. Black lace is perfect for an edgy glam look!
Vintage accessories can be found in lots of places, maybe even your grandmother’s closet! Sometimes the old can be the perfect addition for the new, so get out there and find those special pieces.
