The notion of wearing older garments and accessories in new ways came into being during the late sixties to early seventies. Today trendy girls and guys all over the world are wearing vintage styles from the twenties through to the nineties.
There are so many possibilities and options to choose from when buying vintage. Take these tips into account when buying vintage clothing and accessories to make the right choice for you:
Always take condition into account. Handbags, especially leather ones, can look really beautiful when slightly worn, but watch out for holes, tears, stains and moth damage to fabrics.
2. Check the fit
Always check the sizing of clothing, as sizes change over time. A vintage medium dress might fit like a modern small, depending on the era and brand of the item. Larger dresses and shirts however can look even more stunning when cinched in at the waist with a broad belt so don’t be afraid of loose fits. If possible, try on before buying, but if purchasing online, measure yourself with a tape measure and compare to the measurements provided by the seller.
3. Will it work in your wardrobe?
There is no point in buying a piece that will simply take up space at the back of your closet and never see the light of day. Choose items that will work well with others in your current wardrobe by paying attention to styles that naturally suit your body and personal taste as well as classic pieces that will never go out of style.
