From music to makeup, drawing on vintage designs has become a top trend. But nowhere is the modern world’s love of vintage designs better seen than in fashion. Whether it’s an Edwardian blouse or bold Eighties dress, we’re dusting off all kinds of vintage clothing. Vintage fashion isn’t just for a few aficionados, though. All kinds of people are making room in their wardrobes for these classic garments; and the best vintage looks are all about combining the old with the new.
Bringing Vintage Style into Your Wardrobe
As it happens, a great deal of modern fashion is a reinterpretation of older styles. Different vintage inspirations might be more popular at one time than another. So, when you’re out shopping vintage, don’t just buy anything. Think about what items look similar to current trends. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should throw out vintage items that are less trendy. Perhaps their time is right around the corner. A diverse mix of vintage clothing gives you plenty of options from season to season.
Most importantly, when it actually comes to wearing vintage, you’ll want to carefully pair your vintage items with contemporary clothes and accessories. Dressing in vintage clothes from a single period can sometimes look too theatrical. For your vintage outfit, consider choosing one main vintage item, like a bold coat, skirt, or dress, and pairing it with modern clothing. You can complement this with contemporary hair, make-up and accessories.
However, don’t be discouraged from experimenting with your vintage wardrobe. Mixing and matching items from different eras can lead to exciting new outfits. This is, after all, how many of the best designers work.
