Halloween Edition: Becoming Audrey Hepburn

Nicole Couch

One of the most popular Halloween costumes is Audrey Hepburn's signature look in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Who wouldn't want to wear that amazing dress with all the diamonds and pearls accessories? Well, this Halloween you can, because CHC Vintage is going to help you turn into Audrey Hepburn and other characters from your favorite films!

Step 1: You need a dress with a certain shape. In Breakfast at Tiffany's, Audrey wears a dress with a distinct shape. It is has a scooped neck, it is sleeveless, and it hugs any curve she might have had. While we don't have a dress the exact same color, we do have a dress the exact same shape! 

Step 2: The accessories. You have to find a tiara and long cigarette holder to pull off this look. Don't forget that statement pearl necklace along with the black gloves and diamond stud earrings.  For shoes, we went with the comfy look and kept the converse in. You can do that too! Mix it up and make this costume your own. 

Step 3: Keep the makeup simple. For a fun night, keep yourself looking fresh. A light foundation and not a lot of blush or contour. The only thing you have to apply a lot of is mascara for that signature doe-eyed Audrey Hepburn look!

Fall Trends 2017

Nicole Couch

With the start of fall on Friday, a new season of trends as started. While you might be thinking ‘I know the trends. Wear burgundy, boots, and have a pumpkin spice latte in my hand,’ you would be wrong. Well, not entirely wrong, but this season brings about a whole new set of trends that are so cute, you’ll throw the burgundy sweater to the side (but don’t throw it too far. You’ll want it back).

 

One trend seen all over runways and in stores is fringe. And fringe can come on a lot of vintage clothing, like from CHC Vintage. It’s a fun way to look dressed up while wearing a comfortable jacket or shirt. Having the fringe hang from the sleeves of your shirt or even on an understated bag and liven up any look this fall.

Another big trend is fur. Right now, the humid weather wouldn’t allow everyone to go out and wear a cumbersome fur coat. However, as we digress into colder months, fur will be everywhere. Have it plain or liven it up with some color. Just be sure to double check that it’s fake!

Thank goodness for this next one - lounge wear! Grab those leggings, a comfortable t-shirt and throw your hair in a messy bun. Keep it classy or make it grunge (there are really cute vintage tees from CHC Vintage to help with this look). Have a more leisurewear look with some workout pants and a pair of sneakers. Comfortable will be your favorite look this fall season.

Last but not least, keep a lookout for anything shiny. Metallics, glitters, and anything that sparkles is a must have this fall. Rock a full metallic outfit or keep it simple with some sequins on your favorite shirt, pants, or dress. Tis the season to be shiny!

Transition into Fall with Ease and CHC Vintage Clothing

Nicole Couch

Women all across America relish in the fall weather. The temperature outside starts to drop, while pumpkin spice food and drink items start to grace grocery store shelves. However, the best part of fall is definitely the fashion.

Before it becomes completely fall with those cute boots and comfy sweaters with jackets, there is a transition period. The weather starts off in the morning as a cool 50°F, rises to 80°F during the middle of the day, and the drops again for cool nights. So the question is: What do I wear?

 

No one wants to be shivering one minute and sweating the next. So you have to be prepared. Step one is to put away the shorts. Instead, break out the jeans, skirts, and cute dresses that are colored and appropriate for fall. You will look cute while being comfortable and not too hot or too cold. CHC Vintage has plenty of fall sweater dresses, skirts, and more to give you that unique look while keeping you the right temperature.

Break out the jackets! Bomber jackets, army jackets, leather jackets, and more are the perfect piece for the September and October months. When you wear a cute T-shirt and start getting cold, throw on that jacket to keep you warm. When you get too hot, take it off. Everyone needs the perfect jacket in their closet. Check out all of the cute outerwear pieces at CHC Vintage to find outerwear to keep with you during the day.

Do not be afraid to try new things! And those new things can be old. CHC Vintage sells vintage clothing to you that is unique and matches your style, or puts you out of your comfort zone. The best way to transition into a new season is to try something new. Visit CHC Vintage online or on our Etsy store to find amazing vintage clothing for a new look this season.
