Classic 40s Film Noir Style – pair our Hayworth Dress with seamed stockings and turban hair wrap!

We love this Film Noir 40s look – an elegant look that you really won’t find on the high street.

Pair with this gorgeous scarf and wear as turban popular in the 40s and great if you are pushed for time. We’ve found a great video by our friend Sarah Bloor on how to do a 40s turban style here

Add some bling with this gorgeous vintage inspired brooch and some diamante stuff earrings.

Finish with some seamed stockings!

For 1940s style with a modern twist –  we’ve paired our Veronica Jumpsuit with a bit of bling and a great clutch bag. You can wear any classic shoes with this style – a nice high heel we think! Plus a lovely Veronica Lake inspired hairdo is easily achievable and a nice compromise between modern and vintage.
