The Classics: Vintage Pumps

"Remember this: classics never make a comeback. They wait for that perfect moment to take the spotlight from overdone, tired trends." -Tabatha Coffey. This explains exactly I how I feel about fashion.

 

In this post I want to show you how I modernized my vintage 80's pump into work wear. I have always liked pairing old and new items together. I normally start with my shoes because they are a passion of mine and I love to style around them.

 

For this style I wanted to show a simple work wear look that included a vintage piece. Because my pump had several colors in it, I wanted to focus on the primary colors. This gives me a way to style my clothing. My blouse was purchased from Target, similar here and here. I like that the red and white stripes contrasted with the pattern on the shoe. My shoes were purchased from Poshmark and was made in the 80's. My go-to online stores for vintage shoes are Etsy and Poshmark. Your pants don't necessarily have to be the exact color and style that is pictured, but straight or slim cropped leg pants would be best.

 

Here are some pictures below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that you were able to get some style inspiration and tips on how to pair a fashionably vintage pump for work. Always remember, Simplicity makes a Statement.
