The retro infection sweeping through fashion affords a number of styling ideas that mix the prim and proper with the pinup. Take this editorial starring Luisa Bianchin: a cardigan over a knee-length dress is pretty but won’t turn heads in the same manner as an equally-prim jacket worn open to reveal floral hot pants. Headscarves and cat eye sunglasses worn in tandem are all the more stunning when paired with vintage-style lingerie. A gingham shirt balances its midrif-baring tie at the bottom with a buttoned-up collar at the top. Vanessa Bellugeon’s styling is unrivalled retro glamour.
