The 1930's. An era of decadence, opulent embellishments, slinky gowns in luxurious satin....what better decade than this to inspire your occasion look this summer?! We've taken three classic 1930's styles and added an up-to-date spin on them for a selection of perfect vintage style looks for this season.
Taking inspiration from 1930's silhouettes like the crochet gown below, this maxi dress by Jarlo has just the right amount of embellishment and pretty 30's style cap sleeves, making it ideal for wedding guests or a day at the races. Team with our 30's style box clutch and deep plum nails to finish the look.

Pleated mid length skirts were common in the 1930s, and luckily for us midi skirts are still big for 2014! Demure yet feminine, glam up this look by adding a glitzy top, fabulous heels and amazing accessories. We've gone for monochrome inspiration here, you can never go wrong with this classic combination no matter what time of year whether you're off to the races or a wedding.

This style was typical of 1930's day wear. If only we could wear this look as an everyday outfit now! Instead, save it for a day at the races or summer special occasion as the elegant fit of this midi dress exudes 30's style. Teamed with a large 30's inspired hat and glamorous accessories, this look is transformed from day wear to occasion style in an instant!
