Vintage-Inspired Engagement Party Looks

Want to announce your engagement with unique, vintage-inspired flair? Take a style tip or two from the queens of vintage style while you choose the perfect, timeless outfit for your engagement party and photos!

Carmella-loving starlets can easily emulate the show-stopping glamour of Old Hollywood with a figure-flattering frock and a bold, red lip color. For casual photos and gatherings, take a look at the Norma Jean days: High-waisted denim and effortlessly chic button-downs pair perfectly with diamonds!

Whimsically sweet lacy dresses a-la Grace Kelly are the perfect choice for brides-to-be wearing Angelique designs. Dahlia brides can add to this perfectly romantic look by adding a flower crown, floral details and nature-inspired accessories. 

The Pirouetta bride is inspired by all things ballet-chic, and Audrey Hepburn's graceful style is the perfect look to channel. From full-skirted dresses to a classically casual look with leggings and flats, Audrey's outfits are the perfect source of inspiration for any engagement look.

Lori– and Charlotte-wearing engaged ladies are inspired by the vibrant Art Deco influence of 1920s fashion, and who better to echo than the goddess of Parisian fashion, Josephine Baker? Channel the dancing queen of 1920s with fabulous feathers, deco-inspired designs, expressive animal prints, Gatsby-esque sequins, long strings of pearls and, of course, loads of glittering diamonds!

Iconic looks like Jackie O.'s take "less is more" to striking, new heights. Pair a classic LBD with a strand of pearls or heirloom earrings and let your natural charm and brilliant new diamond do the rest! We can easily envision Stella bride donning a Chanel, Dior or Givenchy-esque ensemble.
