It’s not difficult to attain the vintage dress look with some time, effort, and even a little or no money.

Things can be rescued, found, cleaned up, painted, and transformed with a little ingenuity and imagination.

Even an old core that you find can be made into an attractive necklace–or a piece of material can become a scarf.

Of course getting the vintage look does mean also visiting thrift stores to find vintage clothing itself.

A scarf can do a lot to create the look as can certain jewelry, which need not be expensive and can usually be seen at a thrift store or salvation army store.

Sometimes it’s the cheap piece that pulls off the vintage look–the oversized silver-like heart that has tarnished in the right place and ends up looking expensive.

White lace and promises and leathers–these can help create the vintage look as can a style of dress that is more mini-skirt oriented, with a pair of tights or jeans underneath.

Open toe sandal-style shoes with a little heel can transform you into the vintage look, and a touch of pink lace at the throat can help.

One way is to find some key pieces that are from the 60s or 70s and build around them–longer sweaters or dresses can pull off the look even if modern as can the sweater dress or bell-bottom flair.
