One of the best fashion investments you can make? A vintage #Adolfo suit.
One of the best conversation starters? A vintage #Adolfo suit.
One of the things you should be buying today? You guessed it : a vintage #Adolfo suit.
Part Chanel-like chic, but much more affordable, Adolfo is one of those vintage brands that screams timeless but feels modern. And the great part about a suit? You can wear it seperate, it looks great with even just a white tee, and it elevates everything.
A little bit about Adolfo:
Adolfo began his career as a milliner and apprenticed at Balenciaga before moving to New York in 1948 to apprentice at Bergdorf Goodman. After receiving several awards for his hat designs, he opened his own millinery house in 1962 with a loan from Bill Blass. He began designing clothing for his models to wear while showing his hats and by the mid 1960s his celebrity clients ranged from the Duchess of Windsor, Gloria Vanderbilt, and Betsy Bloomingdale to Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Nancy Reagan, who wore a red Adolfo dress, currently in the Smithsonian, to her husband’s second inaugural ball. In the 1960s Adolfo’s designs were playful and even flamboyant, though by the 1980s he was best known for his ladylike, Chanel-inspired cardigan suits.
Adolfo is collected by many a vintage fan. My favorite places to find it are eBay and etsy. I personally love how versatile the pieces are, and how “grown up” the suits make me feel. I’ve found some #Adolfo suits for you below. They’re perfect with any sort of top, for your big work day, date night, or anytime you want to feel like a lady.
