1940s outfit When I started looking for a 1940s dress to build this outfit around this gray wool day dress really stood out for me. It's the kind of dress you could dress up or down and wear for any occasion.  It's also got beautiful red buttons so I decided to accessorize with some gorgeous red vintage accessories to make those buttons really pop! The accessories are all 1940s too, but don't be scared to mix-and-match different decades. Wearing vintage is all about individuality, so just enjoy it! Clockwise from top:
