7 Style Tips to Rock The Old Hollywood Glam Look
Do you know which women are the sexiest? The ones who believe they are sexy. Old Hollywood glamour is more than just your ensembles, it’s about being a confident woman and believing in your seductive charm. Women of that era- the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner and Katharine Hepburn still make us gaze in awe as we look at their breathtaking pictures.
Are you a femme fatale? Do you have the attitude to pull it off? Then here’s your ultimate guide to Old Hollywood Glamour that will make you irresistible.
1. Picking Your Ensemble
Women in that era never went out looking less than sheer perfection. Long maxis, midis, ladylike voluminous skirts with tight bodice (Monroe inspired) were major. Embellishments weren’t shied away from and necklines plunged most of the times further enhancing the womanly curves. Androgynous dressing also had become popular in this era. Nothing was considered over-the-top, it was the era of ultimate drama!
2. Wear A Hat
Who can deny the sophistication a hat exudes? Thinking who wears hats in India anymore? Classy people do! This year it’s all allowed, honey, go for it.
The iconic Hollywood women never stepped out in the sun without wearing sunglasses. Wear round ones or oversized sunglasses, whatever you please, but make sure you protect your eyes from the scorching sun (Women in this era were very high maintenance!)
4. Make up
It was all about highlighting your features. Wear a black winged eyeliner (no color!) and avoid kohl-lining the lower lids. False lashes were used widely as women fluttered their eyes to charm men and bring them down to their knees. Eyebrows were paid attention to and were darkened using an eyebrow pencil. Top it off with a good curling mascara. Color your lips using matte red or maroon lipstick. No gloss, and shimmer- keep it matte!
In the 50s, women used to wet-set their hair. If you wish to follow suit, put rollers in your still damp hair and blow dry. Side sweep your hair and enjoy the gorgeous retro waves!
Women were not afraid to adorn themselves with loads of jewelry back then. Diamonds, gold, pearls-make sure you have at least two pieces of jewelry on.
7. Signature Scent
When Marlyn Monroe was asked what does she wear to bed, she said Chanel No. 5. We aren’t asking you to wear No. 5 but choose your scent and make it your signature. When you pass by, the aroma you leave behind should be enough to say you had been there.
Old Hollywood Glam as a trend has been taking over the world as women are loving all things vintage this season. Go over the top, dress like a femme fatale, flaunt your womanly curves as your pretty wavy hair are blown by a romantic breeze. Let all men hear the violins!
