Lady Like Vintage Dress

Finding a vintage style dress or vintage inspired dress is a great way to find dresses with feminine details.  Such lady like vintage dresses may include feminine features like ruffles, polka dots, or off the shoulder necklines. Of course there are also so many other feminine details that you can find in modern vintage style dresses.  Consider a few great examples of lady like vintage dresses currently available at Vintage Fringe.

Ella Moss puts ruffles to good use with the Abigail Ruffle Front V Neck Dress which is an upscale dress featuring ruffles around the neckline.  Of course the details don’t stop there.  This dress also features buttons down the center of the ruffles and it also features a tie around the empire waist.  This dress is made of silk and does feature a tank dress lining in black as well.  It is a sophisticated, classy dress that is the perfect occasion dress and a great dress for summer and even holiday parties.  This dress is a true statement piece and a great classic feminine style investment piece for your closet that will be a go to dress for multiple seasons.  The silk fabric is a major draw as it gives the dress a bit of a shimmer and with the tie at the waist to give it a fitted look, the dress really is an elegant, gorgeous lady like vintage dress.

With a similar style with a ruffle v neck, the Ella Moss Dita Dress also features great feminine details.  This dress features a modal jersey fabric blend with a deep v neck adorned with ruffles.  Best of all this dress has a great polka dot pattern in Pond (Green) contrasted by a lighter shade of green dots and in Shadow (a smokey purple color) contrasted with white polka dots.  This dress really reminds of something you would see January Jones wearing in Mad Men.  Similarly to the Abigail dress, the Dita dress also features an empire waist and great colors and patterns depending on your style and preference.

Our last example of a lady like vintage dress is the Lenice One Shoulder Dress.  This dress is a great vintage inspired piece that has been brought to a new dimension with this modern dress.  Featuring a fitted style and contrasting color around the waist and neckline this dress really does have a lot of great details.  Of course, the one shoulder detail features a bow in the black trim around the neckline and shoulder.  The body of the dress is in Birch a taupe color that is sure to stand out.  The dress also features a bit of color blocking with a black stripe around the waist.  The dress hits about mid thigh depending on your body type, but is a gorgeous, elegant feminine style dress by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.

As you can see, there are a number of great options to find fabulous feminine details and lady like vintage style dresses available online.

Spotlight on Ella Moss

Ella Moss is the perfect brand for fall fashion, the fabrics are always comfortable with style that is perfect for every day and for every night. The Costa Puff Sleeve V Neck by Ella Moss is the perfect dark gray color for fall, and a great background for all different colors of accessories. I would especially love it with dark jeans, a big teal necklace, and some fabulous gray nail polish that is so hot right now.

Sweet {and a bit sassy} Summer Dresses

So, its official, its the middle of June and it is summer. I for one, love the cool, stylish, and comfortable look of dresses and skirts. For me, they can be way more comfortable, and so easy to through on the go. Not to mention that they can go from beach, to dinner, to errands so effortlessly with a change of shoes and accessories. Ella Moss makes gorgeous dresses, and I especially love the detail on the Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress.

 Ok, so forgive me for another black dress, but I am just loving the basic black with detail dresses. Also, this dress does come in brown and in case you haven’t heard, brown is super in this summer. Just check out your local MAC counter to see all the new nude and brown make-up. Don’t you love the back of this Modal Jersey Scoop Neck Dress by Splendid, so cute right?? The length is perfect and the cut is comfortable, yet sexy.

So here is some color for you, I love the cheery sunshine yellow and the gray details of the Blaire Widesleeve Crew Dress by Ella Moss.I think it would look fabulous with teal and gold accessories. This dress is super easy to just throw on and be ready, it would be great with wedges or flats and also comes in a great navy blue that is dead on with the nautical trend.

Finding Fashion at the Beach

Don’t worry I am not talking about swimsuits just yet {prepare yourselves, the time is coming soon} but rather the cute things we wear on top of swimsuits. Since it isn’t quite full blown summer just yet any swim outing will probably require some sort of cover up and depending on the type of gal you are you might always require a swim cover up so lets look at some fashionable, versatile, and comfortable options.

Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress

Ok, first we have the full coverage of a maxi dress, which is super flattering for most body types. I love this Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress because it is casual enough for the beach yet elegant enough for a night out. I love pieces that can work for lots of occasions and this dress surly does that. Imagine it with aviator sunglasses,  beaded gladiator sandals and a bright yellow bag-cute!

Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress

If you want something that shows a little more leg, try this ultra cute Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress. Again the empire waist is a flattering cut that hides imperfections, and can easily transition from beach to going out. This dress can completely change looks with different accessories. 

Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top

For those of you that are daring enough to show a  bit more leg, I love this Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top, perfect for throwing on over white jeans right after a fun day at the beach. The bold black and white print is classy yet youthful.

So what is your cover up style? Less is more? Or more is more?

One other dress that I love, is this Velvet by Graham and Spencer Olka 3/4 Sleeve Dress. The neutral brown color would look great with a pop of color accessories like pink, blue, or maybe even some animal print! Another great spring versatile dress that can be ‘winterized’ with boots and a jacket, or ‘summerized’ with sandals and sunglasses!

Trend Alert: Accessories

Navigating the maze of accessories can be tough, here are a few no-fail tricks that work to jazz up any outfit. One of my favorite things to do{and celebrities rock this all the time} is to add a pop of color somewhere to an outfit. It could be a handbag, a necklace, a shoe, anything really.  Here is a great example of a simple jeans and top {a fabulous top at that, its Sweet Peaby Staci Frati Ruffle Sleeve Bib Top} with a pop of color in the shoe. The bright purple is fun and unexpected-love this look!
Sweet Pea by Staci Fragti top and a pop of color in the heels.

Another hot accessory trend is an over-sized clutch. What girl doesn’t love an over-sized bag?? This look is so functional and fashionable, love that combo don’t you?? This look clearly has a pop of color in the pants, and a busy print in the Keelin Squareneck Lace Top by Velvet so the neutral black and brown accessories are spot on. Notice how the clutch is black and the bangles are brown, don’t be afraid to mix!

 And lastly, something that I like to call the three B’s: Boots, belt and bangles. Boots have been major for the past several seasons and there are no signs of that slowing down. They can instantly add some rock-n-roll, retro, classy, or cowboy to your look. Belts are are great way to create a waist, and can even work great to camouflage a waist when wore when a blousy top. Bangles are so easy to throw on and it seems that ‘the more the merrier’ trend with them is still going strong. So don’t be afraid to stack them up! I love how all three of these accessories jazz up this simple{yet beautiful} black tunic dress by Ella Moss. Again notice the pewter on the belt and the gold bangles, mixing these is ok and looks chic, don’t be afraid to try it!
