This retro blog gives you various styling tips from me, Miss Poppy. You can follow him on Miss Poppy's Gazette

Ten basic pieces to start a vintage chic wardrobe:

  1. Ballerina's, you can wear them at the office, on holidays or for an afternoon shopping. Comfy and elegant.
  2. Capripants, they are alround summer trousers for women, if you combine them with a white blouse, you have a classic chic look.
  3. A cardigan, this items goes almost on anything, and is superhandy for when it gets a bit chilly. 
  4. A chanel coat, you can wear this coat for any occasion and it fits well on a classic dress aswell on your favorite jeans.
  5. Camelcoat, this is a classic wintercoat that gives you immediately that stylish flair. If you can affort it buy one in cashmere or at least a good synthetic fiber.
  6. A white blouse, this is a great basic piece that fits for any occasion and on almost anything. It's chic and simple. It can be pared with jeans, a long skirt, shorts and much more.
  7. Kitten heels, these can replace your killer heels on the weekday. Most of them are comfy enough to walk in all day and the're still very flattering.
  8. The little black dress, yes I coudn't make this list without that. Dependant on the occasion, you can combine the dress with a jeans jacket, silk scarf or pumps.
  9. Navy sweater, everyone remembers Brigitte Bardot in her striped sweater. This sweater is exceptionally great to wear on a stormy day at the beach. Try to get one with a boatneck.
  10. Plissé skirt, yes I know not everyone likes them and you have to be careful not to turn into some stiff nanny. But combined with ballet flats and a French twist in you hair, you can look super sophisticated.

This is only a small list but it's a start.
