Treat yourself to a lovely shirt (customise it with the recent make and mend if you like) and wear it tucked into a simple, formal and long Fifties skirt or even some shorts or culottes. I’ve seen culottes bobbing around on Mouse Vox Vintage just now. Dress up your formal outfit What I also really like at the moment are scarves tied around the hair, they always look adorable and are a great way to make messy beach hair look stylish. You can pick vintage scarves up from just about any vintage or retro shop, they make great accessories.
Waist belts will never cease to be stylish or sexy. They are perfect for accentuating a waspish waist and make the most simple of outfits look very sexy!
If you like to be on trend then take some inspiration from Hepburn’s sandals. Sandals are a summer essential and the ones featured in Roman Holidaya re quite gladiator-esque in the way that they wind round the foot which is very in fashion at the moment. The shoe part though is adorable and cute with the little chunky heel and round toes. It might take some hunting to find a similar pair but I reckon it would be worth it since you’d be in fashion but very individual with an enviable vintage shoe. Hepburn’s staple style in Roman Holiday is so simple but yet lovely and stylish. There’s plenty to take inspiration from when scouting about for some summer wears.
