Being a busy gal one needs some quick but cute ways that they can add some vintage into their daily outfits. Not everyone can or wants to walk out of their house looking as if they stepped off a time machine and not everyone has the time to dedicate the precision that it takes to create look from a specific decade.
So I wanted to show you how I created a simple and easy casual day look inspired from the 1960's.
I started out by wearing a 60's inspired sweater from Boden called the Pamela sweater. Super comfy and super cute, I definitely want to get it in more colors. I paired it with my jeans for my casual look. I set my hair in hot rollers but you can also use steam rollers or large rollers overnight. I do plan to do a tutorial of my steam rollers soon so keep a look out for it.
I slapped on a headband and of course forgot my earrings for this little mini shoot but a pair of post earrings or hoop earrings would go great with the look. My makeup was minimal and I would like to think that women on an everyday basis didn't put on fake lashes and cat eye makeup. I did use liner and it was very thin. I think next time I will put it on a little thicker but I like the simplicity of it especially if I am going out with my family and running some errands.
I used MAC's liner, Benefit's mascara, a brow brush and brow pencil, and a white eye liner to help open my eyes up a bit. My eyes being the odd shape they are I think I could have used some eye shadow and maybe half of a false eyelash to give my eyes a little kick but I am staying away from false lashes at the moment. At least when it comes to casual day looks anyway. For my lips I used a coral shade from MAC. I just love the color coral lately. Don't you?
How do you create a casual vintage look for the daytime? What elements of vintage fashion, hair, and makeup do you incorporate into your everyday look?
