Vintage Style

If you’re going to get on board with any of the Summer trends make sure it’s accessories. Pile them on, layer them up and match or clash – the more the better. Bernadette F shows us how to do this flawlessly in her Lookbook post.

Bernadette has mixed vintage fashion with second hand and high street accessories to create her own unique look. If you want to mix lots of accessories at once, try sticking to one colour pallet. We love the mix of tan items, with gold, studded and fringing details to add a bit of variety.

Our favourite part of her look is her John Lennon sunglasses, which many of us in the Global Cool office are already sporting (yes, we know we’re so cool). If you fancy getting a pair of your own check out these eco options…

Or rock these Vintage 80s dead stock round sunglasses from Mint (above right) that feature thin gold tone frames, a gold tone bridge and dark green tinted lenses.

If you’re not sure if the round sunglasses look suits you, opt for bigger frames like these Vintage Metal Round Glasses (above centre). The bigger lenses And because the sunglasses have got us thinking of John Lennon here’s a little tune for you…
