When people think of vintage fashion its very easy to think of cute summer dresses and playsuits such as these:
For me, winter is the hardest time to incorporate vintage style into my everyday wardrobe. The fact that i feel the cold all the time in the winter makes me dust off the hoodies and thicker jumpers in order to keep warm. This as you can well imagine isn't what i would like to be wearing so this year to make an effort to buy some simple pieces that will keep me warm in this coming British winter.
Wearing your faves all year round:
There are ways in which you can make your pieces last all year. One option would be layering; to either wear something under or over your dresses to keep you warm. This will allow you to still wear all your pretty dresses when jack frost nips at your nose!
Jumpers and cardigans:
I believe that for every vintage girl these items are key in the winter. As i said before they can be worn over dresses to look stylish in the coming cold months but also teamed up with a cute shirt and a pair of high waisted trousers a few jumpers have to be a staple in your wardrobe.

Is it pants or trousers?
Whatever you call them they can be a good addition to a winter wardrobe if you get the right style. I think that high waisted trousers are definitely the way to go as not only do they look fab, you don't have to worry about the dreaded muffin top that you get with hip hugger trousers. You don't have to do away with the jeans either. Grab yourself a pair of wide leg jeans with a cuff and 50's chick is just an accessory away.

A good stylish coat can be one of the most important things you can invest in for the winter months. Vintage coats can make a dent in your savings however they really are an investment. If you are a confident sewer it might be an option to buy a patter be it modern or vintage to sew yourself a glorious piece that will serve you for many years to come. This option can be pricey as the cost of good quality material can mount up depending on how many meters you need.
Tights, tights and more tights:
Tights or stockings are a must in the winter. Got to keep those tootsies warm and they can add that little something different to an outfit.
