How To Wear Vintage
It’s happened to all of us. You walk into a store and find an amazing vintage piece: a handbag, a scarf, a pair of shoes. You hurry home to find something to pair it with, but nothing seems to work! It can happen with contemporary consigned items as well. On our website, we offer a wide variety of vintage and contemporary designer clothing and accessories, and we want you to be able to enjoy your purchases right away! That’s why we’ve put together these tips on how to integrate your most fabulous purchases into your wardrobe.
- Pair with your favorite basics
Add your new scarf to a basic tee and boyfriend jeans, or wear a vintage bag with a little black dress and your favorite pumps. Let that one great accessory stand out rather than crowding it with too many other pieces. Simple and effortless can be just as chic as an outfit that took all morning to plan.
This vintage Chanel bag on our website would be the perfect finishing touch for a night out.
- Give your vintage and consignment purchases a makeover
Don’t be afraid to belt that dress or cuff the sleeves. Even a different pair of shoes can make such a difference. Little quick fixes can transform anything to make it fit your personal style.
- Mix vintage and contemporary
Toughen up a ruffled vintage dress with a leather jacket and heels for an unexpected strong yet feminine look. Or add a vintage cardigan to a dress to make it work appropriate. Mixing and matching doubles the possibilities or your wardrobe in an instant, and gives you an overall more unique look.
Here’s another one of our vintage Chanel bags that would look amazing mixed into a casual contemporary outfit!
- Update the outdated
Next time you come across a matching suit from the 60s, or a vintage dress with a few too many ruffles, don’t overlook it! Many times, these things can be easily updated with the help of a tailor. Mix it up and don’t be afraid to put your own personal flare into it. You can rock the jacket from that vintage suit with jeans and oversized sunglasses to update it and make it appropriate for every day.
