Style Vintage Wear

Shopping for vintage that works for you is key. There may be remnants of the 80s still about, but if you don’t like the style, why wear it? Vintage is about embracing the decades you do like and the shapes you feel work best on your figure. If you aren’t sure where to start, 50s and 60s styles are usually great for all kinds of girls, from thin to curvy. The dresses are usually cut very flattering, A line and flared out for a dramatically feminine style.

As far as style tips go, a great way to start is to pick one vintage piece and build the rest of your outfit around it using more modern choices. So whether it’s kitten heels from the 70s or a beautiful 40s pin up dress, have everything else be more modern. That way you won’t feel as if you are walking around in a big period piece costume. It’s also good to start with materials that are comfortable for you, like lace or sequins. Going with the velvet 80s dress may be a bit too much for someone just starting to go back a few decades!

When shopping for true vintage, remember that sizes aren’t the same as they are today. You may be a size 4 in modern clothes, but that may be a size 8 in a dress from the 50s. Be sure to always try pieces on or get measurements if you are buying online.

When it comes to the latest fashion trends, vintage is definitely one to embrace as it is as been kicking for the past few years, which is rare for most trends that die out in a season or two. You are going to be grateful you have it in your closet because it’s going to last you a long time, style wise. Keep an eye out for worthy investments both online and in local vintage stores and you may find that perfect piece for your closet.
