Hunted Vintage: Let's go hunting...

Hunted Vintage..."A great wardrobe doesn't have to cost a fortune, but it does need to be Hunted down - Let us do the Hunting for you"

Established at the end of 2015 by entrepreneur and fashion guru, Nicole Perry, 24, Hunted Vintage is a unique concept in which high-quality vintage fashion can be sought out from the deepest, darkest corners of the unknown, and be delivered right to your door. With a passion for vintage clothing and high fashion, Nicole believe's everyones personalities transcend themselves through the clothing they wear - a way to self-express ourselves leaving our own footprint on the fashion world.

"I've always been a fan of vintage fashion. The stories one item of clothing can hold is remarkable, especially when it's been passed down from generation to generation. I love finding out where the clothes have been, and how they've survived years and years of being passed around to different owners. The way people can style one item of clothing in a number of different ways, echoing different personalities, is fascinating to me. Standing out from the crowd is extremely important to me, and with the majority of vintage clothing being one-off pieces, I wanted to give fashionistas a platform they could come to find something unique and on-trend.

The Scottish based business can deliver worldwide, connecting fashion-lovers globally, and as Nicole states..."Fashion has no boundaries" when it comes to being stylish.

With the winter months upon us, and every storm battering Scotland at the moment, I asked Nicole to share her advice on her top winter layering tips...

LAYERING:
A must for Scottish winters. Layering doesn't only mean you'll be kept warm this winter, BUT, it also means you can show off all of the beautiful clothes you own whilst facing the blistering cold.

Pair chunky knits with scuba scarfs pulled in at the waist with a grungy belt. Add leather ankle boots for kicks and voila, hello Vogue cover model.

INVEST IN GOOD OUTERWEAR
If you're going to invest in anything expensive during winter, make sure it's a stylish, yet functional coat/jacket. After building up a pretty varied selection, you will be able to rock a number of different looks through those cold, dark months, ensuring you feel stylish throughout the miserable weather!

Puffa, suede, leather and faux fur jackets are favourites, and they can easily be mixed up to add some sass to a number of day-to-day or evening looks. 

STATEMENT ACCESSORIES
Investing in  a variety of stand out winter accessories can help enhance the look of any outfit. It's always freezing in Scotland so dressing up the 'I live in Scotland and I'm frozen" look is always a top priority when styling outfits.

A faux fur stole can inject character into any outfit, or even a statement bag which oozes sophistication. A hat can add a pop of colour to your outfit of choice, or even an oversized scarf to keep your neck and chest warm. The list is endless!

LONG-SLEEVED DRESSES
Skimpy clothing in winter is a no-go when you live in Scotland. Walking around in the cold shivering -  not a good look. Whether it be a day dress for work, or an evening dress for a night out with the girls, ensure to cover up to keep warm. 

There's something alluringly attractive about a woman who doesn't feel like she has to show off every inch of her body, and men tend to find these mysterious women much more interesting. They tend to be much more warmer and are less likely to sport a cold after a night out too! Long sleeves and turtle necks are so in, so don't be afraid to experiment with different looks to see what suits your shape.

As well as giving me the inside scoop on what to wear this season, Nicole kindly sent me these kick-ass vintage Calvin Klein dungarees to play around in. And play around I did...
At just £55 these beauties can be dressed up or dressed down. From a casual cinema date with friends, to a walk around the park with a four legged friend, to attending a launch event in the city centre, these dungarees are ideal for a more relaxed outfit vibe.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing what this budding young entrepreneur has up her sleeve next, and least to say I don't doubt that it will be phenomenally fashionable.
