How to Rock Vintage Style on Valentine’s Day
Posted on February 02 2015
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, so it is time to start honing in on your red and pink styling options! Whether you are going for a romantic diner, just having a relaxed night in, or being whisked away for a romantic weekend somewhere Little Wings Factory has the dress for you. We want you to feel fabulous, relaxed and happy in something unique which fits your style. We’ve got lots of flirty dresses in red, so are you ready to dazzle your date?
Marilyn Satin Red Dress
Marilyn Satin Red Dress - £30
Channel some old school Hollywood style in this gorgeous red satin Marilyn Dress – great for dancing until dawn in! The sweetheart neckline is very sexy, whilst the black ribbon belt accentuates your waist for real va-va-voom style! The dress comes with a black netting trim (as shown in the picture) but you could pop an underskirt underneath for a real stand out look. We’ve styled it here with some black pumps and our Crystal Statement Necklace, but it would also look great with some red or nude heels instead.
Lindy Bop Red Ophelia Dress
A similar style to the Marilyn Dress but made in a more daytime friendly cotton material, the Ophelia dress is one of our bestselling styles. The sweetheart neckline and gathered bust focuses all the attention on the chest area, and really frames your face beautifully. If your waist is one of your best assets, then you could add a contrasting belt to draw attention to this area too. We’ve styled the Ophelia with a Lindy Bop Red Petticoat, Cherished Trinkets Precious Red Necklace, and some black heels – but again you could change the look of the outfit by swopping the heels and the underskirt. Why not try a pair of shocking pink heels for a bang on trend look?
Lindy Bop Pastel Red “Audrey” Vintage Dress
The “Audrey” dress is so named as it is a classic Audrey Hepburn style – and who wouldn’t want to channel her chic style on Valentine’s Day? The high neckline is very demure, but the figure hugging bodice and flared skirt will ensure that all eyes are on you! Wear it with the belt as is, or swop it out for something more eye-catching to show your personality – we think a slim leopard print belt would look amazing! If you’re not a fan of your arms, then just pop on one of our shrugs – the Polka Dot shrug would look super cute.
Talking of Polka Dot, the “Audrey” Dress is available in red polka dot (as well as some other colours):
If the swing dress style is not for you, and you want something a little bit more figure-hugging, then this next dress is right up your street!
Lindy Bop Vanessa Red Polka Wiggle Dress
This dress will hug your body in all the right places, and the contrast ruched bust area really packs a punch. The term “wiggle” refers to the fact that the dress is tapered from the waist to the hem – giving you a feminine wiggle when you walk J perfect as is, or pop on a wider belt for a really cinched in look! Shoe wise, go for black, white, red or even nude!
Don’t forget that Little Wings also stocks hair and beauty products to really make your Valentine’s Day a true vintage style fashion statement.
