Check out how Gina Papa from Slightly Flirty got on with Red’s vintage styling challenge…
My instincts told me I would be going retro for this look since 2016 has been the year of the fashion throwback. So as I navigated through the unique garments at Rags-A-GoGo with this in mind I was drawn to the ultimate retro piece: The high waisted black leather pants! Now it was only a matter of time before the law of attraction would bring me something pink and polyester. Hanging not too far away I spotted the blouse that had me channeling Gucci Garden, a capsule collection at the helm of Gucci’s new creative director Alessandro Michele. As for the specs I was thinking Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle.
The soft pink color of the blouse would be a perfect contrast to the rugged black leather. Its slimming silhouette would tuck perfectly into a high waist and closing every button would create a unique neckline accessory out of the bold collar.
I completed the look by going back to my closet. Every girl has a black heel in there somewhere and adding a fishnet sock creates texture and breathes life back into your disregarded footwear. What’s the moral of the story here? Go retro! Sometimes mixing pieces from back in the day and the back of your closet is great forward thinking.
