File Under: What to Wear to a Vintage Cocktail Party

Flower collar by Boudoir Queen on Etsy, $85.

A charmingly crafted cocktail is always a great accessory, but sometimes, the occasion calls for some effort on your part as well. Between the French Spirits Soiree, the Bootlegger Vodka Cotton Club, and the upcoming Manhattan Cocktail Classic, you may be on the lookout for some swingin’ new threads. You can find a bevy of glamorous vintage items on eBay, Etsy (as pictured) or even Craigslist, but if you have the time, there’s nothing quite like picking through NYC’s second-hand racks. Here are some local go-to vintage shops:

Silk top hat circa-1890s on Etsy, $129.50.

Vintage bow tie, $18 on Etsy.

Victorian ostrich feather scarf on Etsy, $39.

Flapper headband on Etsy, $32.

American Apparel petticoat, $74.

Ruffle party dress by Blasphemina on Etsy, $165.
