However, it's so hard to do properly with the Rack. If you're a really curvy girl this can be as challenging as a 1920s frock.
Considering the Rack, I apply the same rules to menswear as I would to any other jacket and pant choice. So: single breasted, high stance, buttons close together, details at the neck, nipped in waist, all the things I discussed in the jacket blogs previous. Here are some steampunk takes:
Here's some vintage inspiration!
Some retro versions around and about the magazines and red carpets.

Some runway versions of the menswear look.
Chanel FW 2012
And a few modern street takes on this look.
So, in case you hadn't guessed, while I love this look I don't wear it very often. The most I do is a steampunk or equestrian take. With a blazer, ladylike blouse, jodhpurs, and riding boots.
That's all for now Fashionable Reader.
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
