VINTAGE STYLING SESSIONS | No. 1

In our first edition of styling sessions, Kam tries on six vintage pieces in classic black that truly act as wardrobe 'Heroes' to be styled year round.


This session features six pieces of late 90s - 00s Richard Tyler, 2 pieces of 1990s Gucci by Tom Ford and 2 pieces of 1990s Karl Lagerfeld collection, each styled in three ways. It is important that you really get to know the multitude of different ways to style your items to get the most wear and to truly cherish them as styling tools that you can wear over and over again.









1. The GUCCI by Tom Ford black button front shirt

We love this piece because it is truly a closet staple that can be dressed casually as well as professionally and in any kind of weather. The lightweight silky fabric and classic button shape has epaulets on the shoulder which give a little more structure to wear with trousers or denim but still is feminine enough to wear with a summer dress. Additionally, you could try this under a full suit for work or tucked into a full maxi skirt and accessorized with rhinestones for a special occassion.

2. The 1990s RICHARD TYLER button front dress// duster vest.

A dress that buttons up all the way in the front is always an easy cue to style as a duster and really get diverse wear out of the piece. This one by Richard Tyler is amazing because it is sleeveless, thus wears as a long line vest with the buttons undone. Additionally, the silhouette has deep slits on the side seams and in the center front which really give reason to show off some leg. Kam shows wearing it accessorized with incredible jewelry, opened up at the top and belted with a fun strappy sandal and then finally as a way to stylize a favorite pair of vintage denim. Additionally, you could wear a gorgeous , crisp white blouse beneath it with trousers or with a turtleneck and tights for fall.

3. The GUCCI by Tom Ford black stretch shirt dress.

Another amazing yet, easy dress that buttons all the way through which creates additional options for versatility. This dress, with a nice straight silhouette and long slim sleeve is strong worn minimalist without even a single accessory. Yet, layering it with a camisole and belt quickly changes the outfit. Finally, simply grabbing this as a light weigh jacket with jeans you cannot go wrong. Additionally, try this with high boots and great blazer for the Fall.





















4. The KARL LAGERFELD 1990s silk satin and net illusion dress

Although this one is a bit more stylized and dressed up on it's own, this dress still has quite a bit of versatility just by changing up your accessories and layering pieces. Kam let's the dress speak for itself as an easy cocktail dress in look one, then pairs a leather jacket and a cool kitten heel slide for an elevated but edgy outfit. Finally, she paired it with a classic black blazer and pump for a monochrome look with the details of the dress shining through. Additionally, try this even more glammed up with fishnets and some outstanding jewelry pieces for a party.

5. The RICHARD TYLER 2000s slack silk satin three piece skirt set

Sets always are an amazing investment because of the options to wear the pieces as separates or an ensemble and this one gives that extra variation as a three piece. Wearing the three pieces together is clean, polished and quite professional but it can easily be changed up into a night out outfit by ditching the jacket and adding a glitzy belt. Kam shows wearing the jacket as a simple black blouse with jeans but the styling of these can be done in so many ways.

6. The KARL LAGERFELD 1990s jersey wide leg jumpsuit.

This is such an incredible piece because not only does it act as an incredible blank canvas for styling, it is beyond comfortable. The spaghetti straps with wide slit leg and A line shape are minimalist yet sexy when simply paired with some statement jewelry and a heel. For a super casual look, grab an easy white menswear inspired shirt, a jean jacket and a flat. Finally, pair a pop color blazer and let the pants flow from beneath for a more professional ensemble. Additionally you can wear this over a white t shirt or belt and blouson the bodice.
