Wearing Vintage to Work

16 May

Don’t know what to wear to work? Try something vintage.

Not only are vintage clothes cut in a way that’s flattering on a wide range of body types but they are just oh so girly and fun.

On a slender frame, the feminine cuts of the 50s and 60s create curves and play up the feminine edge. On a curvier frame, vintage cuts hug in all the right places. They’re not only flattering, but they are affordable and timeless, making them a fun additional to your working wardrobe. With the help of Etsy.com, I’ve started a list of vintage favorites that I would love to sport to the office.

Clockwise upper left:

  • Pink blouse: Perfect for the girl who’s taking on corporate America.
  • Plaid dress: Check out those big, baby blue buttons.
  • Earthy floral: I think this dress very easily transitions from day to evening – a great find.
  • Tan shirt dress: Have we mentioned that here at Office Pretty we love a good shirt dress?
  • Blue shirt dress: Again, with the flattering, multi-purpose shirt dress… again.

Have you ever purchased vintage? We’re eager to hear your recommendations re: vintage finds and how to make them work at the office.

    There is a fantastic vintage shop in Highlands Square — right across from the Parlour. I LOVE their dresses. Super cute. It’s definitely worth checking out next time you’re in Northwest Denver.
