In the heat of summer, a lady must be cool and poised. With the upcoming summer months, one trend for summer is pieced separates. Perfect for vacations, afternoon brunches with the ladies and summer weddings, vintage separates can be utilized all summer to stay cool and make waves in fashion. For the best styles, take some tips and learn a few new vintage designs from Nataya.
Pastel Layers: Layered chiffon has never been so sweet. For a flouncy Edwardian skirt, take a pastel skirt to your next event. Vintage separates begin and end with Downton Abbey-inspired dresses and this one is a prime example. A light and airy style is cut effortlessly in layers below the knee. Embroidered cording give the upper skirt structure and can be paired with either a billowing top or a fitted blouse. For those summer weddings, lunches, and picnics, this skirt takes the cake in pastels.
Cool and Collected: To match our vintage separates skirts, pair a light and airy chiffon top. Choose a button-up style for less formal occasions and a more styled top such as the Nataya ivory example below. With the breeze to overtake you and a cool drink in your hand, you will be the classy summer woman on holiday (even if just for a day).
Fluttered Fairy: Glistening leafy folds cascade down this skirt to create something spectacular. In a world of vintage separates, the Ecru Nataya lace skirt is one of intricacy and design. Made for a cool and collected demeanor much like the ladies Grantham, this skirt is versatile in nude or bright outfits. This dress was made for flow of movement and poise.
Refined Rosette: Taking the dramatic Nataya hand-made rosettes to a skirt style, these rosette skirts are superbly unique wedding vintage separates. While many skirt styles move toward tight and short, the purpose of this skirt was fluidity and dramatics. With either mint or pink to choose from, your next afternoon summer affair will be effortless and elegant.
Wide and Wonderful: Wide leg pants have crept back into summer fashion. Gone are the gaucho short pants, we have seen long and dramatic wide leg pants as part of many modern and vintage separates. For this look, pair a light top with neutral wide trousers, such as the Palazzo pants. We promise, you’ll be cool as a cucumber and incredibly classy.
Versatile Blouses: It’s difficult to find tops in true vintage separates. With a decided Edwardian design, this reversible is one of our top sellers and shows off a decided vintage feel. Embroidered with chiffon layering and a stylish sash, you’ll enjoy two separate styles. For a darker blouse still sashed and designed with vintage flair, try elements in the Nataya chiffon top, perfect with palazzo pants or a pair of white shorts, you will find yourself going to these styles often throughout the summer.
Vintage separates are incredibly versatile. In the year 2014, we don’t necessarily need to stick to a certain era’s style and are led to pull in elements from varying styles to complete our outfits. Mixing and matching separates is a great way to get more out of your wedding purchases. As we all know, you never want to wear the same thing twice to a wedding. But you can sneak them in, again and again, with separates.
