Inspired by the Vault 101 Jumpsuit from Fallout 3
This is a remake of an older C2C outfit. I wanted to bring in different accessories and make this outfit a little more accessible to everyone since yellow can be an intimidating color to wear.
Style Tip: Tone down a pop of color by pairing it with lots of neutrals and textures. In this case, the denim dress actually becomes a neutral when paired with the yellow bag.
1. The best way to convey the jumpsuit, besides actually wearing one, is to rock a dress. This denim summer dress brings that retro flair that Fallout is known for. // Dress: Boohoo - Emma Denim Button Front Skater Dress, $50
2. I chose retro, yet industrial, looking accessories for this outfit to really drive home the culture of the vault. // Earrings: Boticca - Double Winding Wheel Earrings, $159 / Bracelet: Lucky Brand - Tribal Hinge Cuff, $100 / Belt: Nordstrom - Fossil Macrame Stretch Belt, $40
3. This ladylike purse adds a pop of yellow to the outfit, replicating the jumpsuit’s golden accents. // Purse: Modcloth - Juice Run Bag, $189
4. Classic wedges bring this outfit into modern day and are a comfortable alternative to flats or heels for the summer. // Wedges: Couture Candy - Stella Wedges, $88

Outfit inspired by Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite)
I wanted to replicate the vintage style of the game through a longer cut skirt. The shirt is reminiscent of Elizabeth’s first outfit with the front tie. I also chose a cameo necklace to add more of a vintage splash and bird earrings as a nod to Song Bird.
Skirt: Forever 21, Top: Marshalls, Necklace: Vintage Stone, Earrings: Lucky Brand, Bracelets: Forever 21
Style Advice: When wearing a front tie top, be sure to tie up the top before you button it. The buttons secure the tie from coming undone and keep it positioned nicely.
Since there’s no new outfit today (I apologize - I’m super swamped with my last exam coming up on Wednesday), I thought I’d still give you a gaming inspired outfit! This one is inspired by Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite and put together by me in real life! I’m starting to do more and more inspired outfits in my daily attire and figured I’d share the best ones on here periodically.
