If you have been invited to a vintage party and you are wondering where to buy an outfit that looks like it was from a hundred years ago, the chances are, you will not find one. However, you can make an effort to use your creativity to make a dress that suits the theme. It will be a great way to spend your time and it will also give you a chance to study the fashions of the past which can be a very interesting study.
Do your research
You will need to start doing your research a few months ahead of time because you will want to get the perfect design and if you have never done this before, you might need to have some trial and error experimentation. Study online dresses and study pictures of the dresses of the past and try to understand how these dresses that you find online can be cut up and altered to resemble the beautiful outfits of the past. You will need to buy a cheap dress from a website like Ebay that you can use as a base for your design and it is important for you to make sure that you do not invest too much money in it as there is a chance that you might make a mistake and the dress may go to waste.
You can have a friend be your personal stylist in Dubai by giving you a hairdo that resembles the hair styles of the period. You will find that they are not difficult hairstyles to recreate and the simpler the better because in those days there were no professional hair dressers so all of the styles were styles that could be done by oneself.
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when it comes to vintage parties is that they tend to mix up aspects from different periods, different eras and different countries all together making their outfits wrong and not authentic at all. This is where your research will come in to play. You should study the different styles of different periods and different countries and pick one theme and period that you will stick with throughout your outfit design. It is also important for you to keep in mind that in those days, there were the rich and the poor and the outfits that each of theme wore were very different from each other. This is another thing you will need to keep in mind in order to stay on track with your outfit.
