Historical Fashion Inspiration: Part two ....... Women

Tracy Xavier

So there is Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Mad Men and movies like Casino providing great inspiration for style design. I love the fact that you can just add a few little elements into your look to get the vibe that you are looking for without having to go full tilt costume. That is the fun of accessorizing your outfit. It's Friday, you feel a bit Mad Men. Just toss on a mod scarf with a vintage Mag TAK. Maybe you are heading out on a date and feeling a bit romantic, Go with Downton Abbey with some delicate roses or a cameo.
