VINFLUENCE TODAY: Elle Magazine, August ’17
If you’re a vintage lover and wearer, you may have found that often the new season looks found in today’s fashion magazines are all heavily influenced by the looks of previous eras. In the Vinfluence Today blog series, we take a closer look at an issue, the vintage styles, and where you can find them on Viva Soul!
ONE. GEEK CHIC
Geek Chic has officially been renamed; say hello to what Elle are calling “Grown Up Sex Appeal”. We particularly love the electric blue outfit pictured on model Aamito Lagum, so we took a look at our own collection. Here’s how we’d recreate it.
As we look ahead to the autumn, Elle predicts that velvet will be making an appearance in our wardrobes. We love how this fabric adds such drama to an outfit, especially when it’s made in such deep colours. A particular stand out item in our collection are the green Gucci trousers, designed by Tom Ford in the mid-90s. They aren’t currently listed on the site but if you are interested in them, please message us.
THREE. PLAIDS & CHECKS
Our office wear are going back in time, according the Elle, with multiple references to plaids, checks and heritage prints. Glenurquhart check, or Prince of Wales check as it’s often nickname, seems to be a firm favourite. With that in mind, our 1970s Yves Saint Laurent twinset is bang on trend! This set is a classic, and super affordable at only £200.
FOUR. LEATHER JACKETS
Whatever your preference, we’ve got the leather jacket for you! See above for some of the collection.
