When I opened my September issue of Vogue and saw these breath taking photos of Laura Stone I instantly knew I wanted to continue to shop for feminine, soft, beautiful, 50s inspired clothing. Don't get me wrong I have loved the 80s and 90s fashion that have been dominating the runways, but there is something so romantic about dressing this way. These clothes celebrate a woman with curves and that is something I definitely can get on board with. Last week I wore two retro styles (here and here) and you can be certain I am going to try even more. 

Here are a few items that can help you achieve this 50s style:

1. Pretty poppy suede pumps from Isabel Marant from Net-a-porter
2. A beautiful chunky knit from Stella McCartney or similar yet affordable version from Topshop
4. Classic camel a-line skirt from Stella McCartney
5. Leopard coat from Topshop
6. A pretty polka dot headband from Thread Sence
7. Knit cardigan from Modcloth
8. A silk 1950s black and white dress from LA Vintage

I've found myself skewing towards putting together more 50's inspired outfits myself as well, especially for work. Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing.

Such a beautiful editorial. I'm definitely inspired now by 50s fashion (if I wasn't before!)

What I love about this is that she is so sexy without revealing a lot of skin. I don't like wearing short skirts or revealing tops so this style fits me perfectly. It proves sexiness is an inner power, not an overt way to get attention.

esdelope said...

I love that she also looks like a real woman here - beautiful shots!

I adore her...those lips! That skin! The gap in her teeth!
I also agree that this retro throwback is very feminine and pretty, but I'm not wild about the kitten heel or low square heels...

Ruxandra said...

I simply think this is one of the most beautiful editorials I've seen in a while now...

KristiMcMurry said...

Those are gorgeous. I love her hair in these. Thanks for all the suggestions!

thehautepursuit said...

Ashley said...

So cute! I love all these looks from the shoot...I've always steered to wearing more 50's inspired emsembles. Audrey Hepburn & Doris Day are great inspiration for this style too!

Start wearing one the Emmy's hottest trends now: Navy!

I'm loving this editorial. Vogue has been doing a lot of pictorials with a'retro' feel. The Vogue Turkey August issue was just as gorgeous but had more of a 60s/70s feel.
This one reminds me so much of 'Mad Men'!

Hilary said...

the leopard belted sweater is gorgeous! I agree about dressing with inspiration from the 50's. I like celebrating that i'm a woman by wearing more feminine things!

Viki said...

I am SO excited for this 50s revival!! I'm ready for a shift to more feminine, dressy styles and less super-casual stuff. I loved this spread in Vogue, too. I cut out all of these photos for my inspiration book :)

brit said...

I have 2 vintage dresses from the 50s that I will be posting about soon! Love the change of pace and going a little softer with style.
