Revival clothing is known for it’s classic and elegant looks. A chic look should seem effortless and that’s exactly what this collection of smart separates helps you attain. With it’s 1940s inspiration, we look for feminine tailoring and designs that fit and flatter as if they were custom made for you. This classy outfit is available in sizes 8-18 while stocks last.
Let’s start with the basics: Firstly the trousers. These navy blue tailored trousers are a wide leg 1940s style, we call them our Hepburn Pants. Katherine Hepburn was one classy broad and we don’t mind borrowing a bit of her style for our wardrobe.
We prefer a nice dark brown leather belt to complete this look. In the case of this outfit add the£25 leather belt that will match these gorgeous vintage style brogues.
When looking to buy smart separates, blouses can be particularly tricky. At Revival we specialise in clothing for curvier ladies so when we find a blouse that has room for a generous bust that doesn’t gape and is’t some amorphous ill fitting shape then we are sold! We buy them three at a time because they are worth their weight in gold! So for ladies with a bust we recommend The Mable Blouse or if you don’t need the extra room then take a look at our Clarice Blouse.
Then add a colourful cardigan we love this beautiful yellow to brighten up colder months. Wearing a cropped cardigan such as our Fab 40s Cardigan, coupled with the High Waist Trousers will accentuate and flatten an hourglass or pear shape and will provide a more feminine silhouette to athletic shapes that can otherwise end up with with more androgenous modern looks.
Finally, lets talk about jewellery. We need something understated and classy for this look so we used The Grace Bracelet and Stud Earrings which work perfectly.
