5 Retro Everyday Fashion Hacks That Women In The Past Used That Will Save You Money.

Tired of pinching pennies? I'm going to help show you 5 tips and tricks that fashion icons such as Coco Chanel, Edith Head, and more used themselves.

1 ) The plain dress trick.
Have a formal event coming up? but can't afford a new dress? Here's a tip from famous designer Edith Head, get one of your plain solid colored dresses, and spruce it up with bold pieces of jewelry, for example, let's say you have a simple dark Blue dress pair it with an eye-catching necklace, earrings, or brooch and you'll see your plain Jane of a dress transform in front of your eyes!

2 ) Make do and Mend.

Have a coat you like but never wear but with a few missing buttons? or a dress you still love but it has a few missing bows? in the 1940's women read Pamphlets such as "Make do and mend" to help them save money and materials so don't throw that skirt with a few missing buttons in the trash or give away, keep and box full of bows, buttons, fabric, and ribbons in nearby. not good at sewing? the good thing is you don't have to buy a pamphlet, they’re plenty vintage fashion sewing, and lifestyle blogs that you can go to for free.

3) Not Today Bad Hair day.

Just got your Hair done? don't want it ruined by the weather? no problem! well-known movie stars such as Audrey Hepburn, and Mamie Van Doren wore Scarves around their head to protect their hair from harsh weather conditions, it will save you time and money for beginners try the rockabilly style turban then experiment with other Vintage styles.

4) It's a Skirt it's a Dress nope it's a Drape.
This tip is more for the summer, take a large Drape and hold it behind you wrap it around to your bust  Cross then twist them around your bust then tie and twist them around then tie them behind your neck and Bam! you have a Dress!

5) Three Words Full-length Coat.

Tired of spending so much money on winter or fall wear? Invest in a nice full-length coat Women in the late 1940's to early 1960's wore big coats in the Fall and Winter time and the best part is you can wear whatever you want under it and never get cold.

Bonus tip: Neutral colored Flats.
Can't walk in Heels? don't wanna spend a lot on shoes? buy a pair of black, beige, or white flats they go with most colors so you don't have to break the bank on buying new shoes for every occasion.
