Gloves are often overlooked nowadays. Even retro-loving fashionistas sometimes forget to include this elegant accessory in their wardrobe.

Hair Flowers!

Blue Orchid Hair Flower Clip

Hair flowers are an over-the-top and utterly beautiful style accent! They pack a retro punch and are very very versatile.

Unfortunately, these accesories are not used often in the modern day; but you can change all that by making them part of your new wardrobe!

The rule of thumb for retro hair accessories is: the bigger the better. Try out a big red rose with your favorite vintage dress. Dress up an elegant nighttime ensemble with several large gardenias Billie-Holiday-style. Or sex up that breezy summer dress (or even bathingsuit!) with a brightly-colored tropical flower!

This Retro Leopard Swing Coat: A Must-Have For Fall

It doesn’t happen often, but once in a blue moon I come across a find that makes my jaw drop to the floor. This retro coat is one such beauty.

If you’re striving for an authentic 50s look this fall, this overcoat is a must. It’s comes in a cute animal print fabric and has a flared “swing” cut at the bottom that really moves. Ends just above the knee to show off those gams but still keep you toasty during the chilly season. It also has an adorable hood to pull over your head and keep you even cozier.

At $150 from Pinup Girl Clothing, this high quality coat is a real deal. A solid coat is an investment and a real wardrobe staple. Make your coat purchase one that counts, one you can wear with any retro fall or winter outfit and that will last for years to come.

I know it’s hard to contemplate cold weather when you’re sweltering in the August heat, but this is absolutely the best time to purchase coats. You’ll have your choice of sizes and styles before they’re picked over. Especially this one! Pinup Girl Clothing always sells out of styles fast; so if you’re lusting after their swing coat, don’t wait.

So, what do you think? Do you already own this coat? Have you found another retro overcoat that you love even more? If so, let us know.
