Bingo from top to bottom

Vintage fashion inspired by elegant ladies

Bingo halls have long lost their reputation of being exclusive clubs for grandmothers; with the advent of grandiose venues and themed events for bingo events, the game has been elevated to an exalted status all over the world. Even renowned celebrities are getting in on the hype—TV favorite Jennifer Love Hewitt, comedian Russel Brand, and socialite Paris Hilton were all seen engaging in a round or two with their friends.

Because of its rise in pop culture, many fashion enthusiasts are incorporating the game in their fashion choices. The usual ensemble is composed of a vintage dress, savvy shoes, and the right makeup—the elegant ladies from bingo halls (aka our grandmothers) can actually teach us how to go about this. We can pull off the look of disco-loving Afro-Dity of Bingogodz or the classic ensembles of Mad Men’s Betty Draper by putting together the following:

The Dress
The 40s seem to be the golden age of vintage fashion, as trends in this era still emerge on the catwalks of today—this is why the pieces worn by Gran to bingo nights look so familiar. Sammy D Vintage stated that the prints dominant during this time are patriotic, plaid, gingham, Hawaiian, and novelty prints. Dresses made of gabardine, rayon, and taffeta are also popular.

The Shoes
As much as possible, comfort should be the priority—after all, a bingo game deserves relaxing shoes so we can concentrate on the numbers called out without worrying about blisters. A pair of laced oxford shoes or pastel-colored bowling shoes will complete any retro look.

The Finishing Touches

For accessories, we can opt for a jewelry bracelet set which you can wear on our wrists and radiate every time we mark our bingo cards. Because you use your hands all the time during the game, you can paint you fingers with polka dotted nail art. Light makeup with just the basics will be ideal for intense bingo nights.
