If you are looking for some timeless inspiration, vintage style files will never disappoint you. Think about the crazy obsession with the boho trend from the 70s or the recent reappearance of the slip dress, from the 90s that has made a major comeback for the new generation and Hollywood actors like Selena Gomez, Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow have been seen flaunting the trend. Vintage is the coolest trend right now. Stylising vintage with new age interpretation both in terms of colour as well as fabric makes the look perfect says designer Nida Mahmood. “Vintage is a lot about nostalgia. Bollywood celebs show us how fashion always does a full circle and looks back for references,” added fashion designer Gaurav Jai Gupta

RED LIPS AND DEWY MAKEUP: A dewy fresh face and glossy red lips is what gives you a soft and romantic look. “To get the look pick a foundation with a satin finish formula, then use cream blush and finish with a cream cheek highlighter,” says beauty expert Aashmeen Munjaal.

VINTAGE HAIR: If you are looking for a fail proof vintage hairstyle then look no further, classic style icon Audrey Hepburn sported the look in 1955. Hair Expert Naina Arora says, “A pouf is always an easy, way to look glam. Style your bangs and, tease the base for volume, flip them back and secure with two bobby pins. Push the hair closer to your hairline if you want a more raised date night hairdo.”
