We are Cow and this is what we've been playing at

    Brrrrrrrrr, the cold weather is still in full swing as we make our way into Spring and do we have the perfect remedy for you. What better to stay warm and still look on point other than a puffer jacket? It's a 90's look that can be dressed up or dressed down and Emma's here to show you how.

    1. COMFY CASUAL

    Give your casual look a dash of Y2K. Whether you're out shopping with your gals or running late to a lecture, a puffer is the holy grail of outerwear. Emma has paired this peng puffer with smart checkered pants and vintage kicks for a retro vibe. 

    2. SPORTS DAY

    Sporty Spice called and she wants her outfit back! Get into the spirit of athleisure wear by pairing one of our reworked sport co-ords with a statement puffer to add some spice to your life. This Y2K look definitely isn't for the faint hearted.

    3. FESTIVAL READY

    Omg babe! You got your Glastonbury ticket yet??! We've got you covered for a killer look this festival season. Don't get caught in the storm, pair a puffer with a mesh dress to keep you both dry and fly. Don't forget a pair of vintage DM's to help ya stomp through the mud like a boss. 

    4. GOING OUT

    Jumping out the taxi to the club? Dashing to the shop to get pre drinks sorted? Don't ruin your outfit and throw a puffer over! Emma is dressed to the nines in one of our new silk co-ords with this metallic puffer over the top, giving your reworked look a casual twist.

    We're back back back again with a styling blog to show you our top tips on taking one of our garms - this time a Connie tie front top - and get more wear than ever from your vintage wardrobe. Instead of the fast fashion ethos to buy clothes to only wear them once, we want you to adore the vintage clothes you buy from us for life. It's all a part of our eCow promise - shop for life, not just for one look.

    So stop and drop some coins on a versatile bit of vintage kit you can rock all year round in all sorts of ways. While Lizzie wears our camo Connie top, you can copy these styling tips for any tie front top. 

    AS IT IS

    What can we say? It was made this way for a reason - rock your tie front top with your fav pair of vintage pants for a stylish, balanced look. You can buy the velvet flares Lizzie is wearing here (if you want to cop the whole outfit.)

    BACKWARDS

    Lizzie put her thing down, flipped it and reversed it with this styling choice. Rocking the tie front top backwards makes for a high neck t-shirt at the front and party in the back with a new tie back detail and exposed back.

    DRESS IT UP

    Who said a crop top has to be a casual look? By pairing our tie front with a dreamy animal print vintage skirt, Lizzie has turned a day outfit into a going out style that you can wear wherever requires a more chic look - without sacrificing your grunge principles. 

    LAYERED

    Take your summer top into the colder months by pairing it with a turtleneck, mesh top or a layering tee. Unless, of course, you're brave enough to bare skin when it's under 15 degrees.

    It's one of our best sellers, the Ollie dress is handmade from vintage Ralph Lauren shirts into a one of a kind strappy slip dress. Always made in the UK, always in a different shirt style from the next, this bit of rework has seen us through summer in style and with ease, because there's nothing worse than being layered up during the heat. 

    A slip dress is one of our favourite styles to see back on trend this year, as styling the simple dress can be done in so many ways - each to a customer's unique fashion point of view. For this styling series on the blog, we're getting members of our team (this time photo assistant Toni McCoy-Hopwood) to show off different ways to rock some of our best vintage pieces. 

    OVER A TEE

    Go for the 90s look by placing your slip dress over a cute tee, for a pop of colour and a more casual kind of style. You can buy this vintage lime crop top here.

    WITH A BELT 

    This styling choice is all about the accessories - by bringing in a belt you can change the slip style of the Ollie dress to fit in at the waist. Piling on patterned accessories is a great way to contrast with the block colour of this particular Ollie, and you can buy the leopard print denim jacket Toni wore here.

    TUCKED INTO SHORTS

    When you're tired of strutting your stuff in an Ollie slip dress, remember you can always access a bit of versatility from your purchase by tucking it into shorts or jeans. This way your pretty little dress can become the perfect vest for rocking as part of jeans and a nice top. Or in this case, shorts and a cute top. You can buy the JNCO shorts Toni wears here.
