Incorporating Vintage into everyday wardrobes
For some wearing vintage is a personal choice, others may enjoy it as a collection of treasures to be showcased at home. Vintage clothing and accessories can be enjoyed every day, whether as an all out vintage outfit from head to toe, or just a few key pieces as an accompaniment to modern clothing. The classic styling will keep your look fashionable and trendy.
Professionals who have to wear business attire can choose from the sharp lined suits of the 40s or the 50s slim skirted dress and crop jacket suits. Men can utilize the classically tailored lines of the suits from the 50s and 60s.
For women’s casual attire, a novelty print skirt or vintage pin up sweater are sure to make heads turn. A men’s guayabera, knit shirt, or vintage Hawaiian shirt will put any modern mall-bought shirt to shame.
But what if you don’t want to wear your collection from head to toe?
Vintage beaded cardigans look great over a baby doll T with jeans or a pencil skirt, old or new. A vintage print or eyelet blouse can be worn with shorts for cool look in warm weather.
Guys can spice up their modern suits with a vintage tie or colorful dress shirt, or even a fedora. A vintage concert T looks great with jeans, vintage or new.
Vintage jewelry and accessories can spice up a modern wardrobe with an eccentric touch. A vintage 60s enamel brooch can add a splash of color to your coat lapels while costume jewelry can make even the simplest outfit fun and fancy!
Vintage purses and handbags are a great way to add anything from chic style to colorful whimsy to your daily wardrobe, plus they make a great conversation piece!
A colorfully patterned scarf can be worn as a neck tie or headband or scarf or a waist sash. Vintage platform shoes can add the spice of disco diva or kitten spikes can add sexy sophistication.
Whether head to toe or just as a finishing touch, vintage clothing and accessories can make your look complete.
