So often I get told that people can't wear vintage because it is tiny, made for size 8's & they haven't found anything in a 'real' size. I always say 'let me help you!' But their mind is made up... Well, challenge accepted! I know every shape can shop in my store, all you need is a little inspiration and confidence. I've put together a few of my friends favourite looks (shit it was hard to choose cause honestly, there's SO much).
I am a size 10 Top, size 12 Bottom and 170cm tall, a mum of a 9 month old, lover of sleep ins and breakfasts out. I own WRECKED and wear our clothes daily!
Come with me, bring an open mind & remember my mantra 'there's are no rules in fashion!'
Look 1: Jeans & Tee
Probably the closest thing to a uniform you'll see me in these days... I'm a long Denim lover in all it's glorious forms, and these 501's are the tits. They pull me in, hug my butt and have that relaxed leg I love to flatter my thighs. They come in well under $100 at $82.50, are available in a range of colours and sizes. I paired them with my favourite Harley Tee and our Chocolate velvet mid coat ($65) to up the anti. I am wearing the 32inch waist.
Look 2: The Denim Skirt
This is your ultimate wardrobe staple... Flattering, versatile and under $100! Yes please! I wear mine so often, i've taken 2 more to get me through the weeks. In this photo I am wearing a 12, I also have an 11 and a 14, to suit what look i'm going for. My best fitting is the 12, it has moulded and given juuuust enough to give me a little extra length. This skirt is so damn wearable i've styled it a few different ways to give you an idea.
Skirt $90 Available in sizes 6-16
Body Suit $45 size 12
Be a little.. Daring!
This plunging neckline is softened by the long sleeve and denim.
Body Suit $45 size 12
Ever afraid that statement pieces will make you look bigger? Don't be silly you beautiful creature.
Fluffy Knit $25
Borrow from the Boys!
Don't be afraid of the drape, it's feminine & soft with a bit of edge coming from the fun prints. I'm always pretty casual in my style but if you err on the side of polished, add your favourite pants and heels and boo yah!
Tie it up to show off the waist.
Add some Layers!
I love playing with lengths when styling my customers in store. Adding this cool flowing kimono instantly makes legs look longer. This look would be amazing with a red silk shirt too!
Harley Tee $54.95
Shorts without the cheek!
Shorts a bit daunting? I get it, I literally only wear one pair, and it's these. Because I can't deal with my arse being on show I love that our Levi's shorts have a little extra length to them. Again, a super versatile piece i'm sure you could all see sliding in to your summer wardrobe, but here's a couple ideas for you.
The silk shirt here deserves a mention on its own. 100% Silk, in all colours of the rainbow, long sleeve & short sleeve... I wear mine with my denim, my skirts, open over dresses... For $30 they make their money back in a week!
Silks $30 variety of sizes & colours
Boho babes pair all your favourite floaty tops with these cut offs for that dreamy relaxed vibe! I love the embroidery on this one.
Shirt $45 Size 12-14 (I am a 10 on top, it fits fine, would fit a 12 & 14 comfortably)
Shorts $59 Available sizes 6-14
This style dress is super flattering, fun and has pockets! Woo!
Perfect with a little white tee underneath, a silk tied over the top if your arms aren't your jam or just as it is! (Seriously those silks are just.so.good)
Dress $60 size 12
Go for waist details. This cute little number has ties at each side so you can cinch in where it counts! I think a woman's waist is the sexiest part on her body. If I was to buy this bad boy i'd chop a hands length off the bottom to show some more leg, but it's a perfect length if you like your knees covered.
Dress $65 Size 14 (I'm a 10-12 and fits comfortably, but have seen it fit great on a 14)
Got a funny little summer dress you don't know what to do with? Here you go. This bad boy is SO light and airy, it almost came home with me. I love tucking dresses into my knickers for some volume, but this number with a great belt is also a really flattering, feminine look. Add a denim jacket to edge it up or some sandals to girl it up.
Dress M/L $35
Jacket XL $100
Don't shy away from prints! Just find the best cut for your body and rock it sister. This dress is hot! I love the waist panel which is really flattering, the gold buttons are a nice touch and I unbuttoned a few to show a lil leg.
Dress $49 I'd say this is best fit on a 10 or small busted 12, the waist and skirt would be fine on a 12, across the back is slightly smaller.
Don't be afraid of the crop tops!
Did I just commit a cardinal sin? Cream jeans and Crop tops?! I know SO many girls who sit above a 10 that would NEVER think to pop this outfit on. Keep the jeans high and the top sitting over the waist band and you're home safe babe.
Vintage Lee Jeans 14 $82.50 (i'm a 12 on the bottom but get away with these running a little big, just nice and comfy!)
Pink Embroidered Crop 10 $40
