Vintage is timeless and feminine, when you know how to wear it. Start by choosing just one vintage item and pair it with contemporary items. Most of the time people won’t even realize you are wearing vintage. Did you know that almost all contemporary designs are inspired by vintage pieces? Vintage clothing is often higher quality with better tailoring and attention to details. The fabrics are mostly natural such as cotton, silk, linen or wool and more comfortable to wear.
For this summer you can try a lot of different tees, which remind us of the 90. They have nice quotes and slogans, they come in bright colours and are many times short, or long enough to tie them in the front. Switching from fast fashion to vintage may seem difficult to some, but have you ever been curious about vintage stores that are bursting with amazing treasures and uniqueness? There are so many reasons to love vintage clothing: from the individual designs and quality fabrics to the historical value and sustainability.
Not just tees, you can try on also some super trendy vintage jewels or big sunglasses for a very romantic diva style. One of the quickest ways to style a vintage outfit in a fresh and current way is to keep hair and makeup neutral. Avoid a full-on theatrical makeup and hair and stick to natural styling for a modern look. This is an especially good tip for when you don’t have so many items to mix and match. Perhaps the most difficult tip to get right is to mix decades in one outfit. The best way to get this right is to just practice, practice and practice.
Sometimes, the most wonderful unexpected results come from a lot of trial and error. Try to not just mix the pieces but their traditional wearing order to get the most interesting looks: why not to wear a 90’s T-shirt or a thin sweater under a 40’s dress or throw a modern parka jacket over a 50’s dress. Go wild, you know you want to!
