Vintage for the New Age

January 30, 2012

             When you hear the word vintage, what automatically comes into your mind is old, used and aged by time. Well, that is generally a misconception. Vintage fashion is a fashion statement which brings back the popularized styles during different eras. Vintage fashion has a lot of variation from person to person, but still, what keeps it vintage is the thought of reusing, recycling and repairing old clothes, shoes and accessories to form a new fashion statement. You can reuse clothing or apparel found anywhere from the 90s to the earlier decades.

            Vintage fashion never goes out of style. A lot of fashion designers reinvent a lot of different styles from the past decades. This in turn becomes the trend for a lot of women nowadays. Vintage fashion has been attributed for contributing to environmental sustainability, that is, reusing, recycling and repairing old clothes to bring them back to life. If you come to think about it, it really has more to it than just being a fashion statement. This is why a lot of people still patronize vintage fashion.

            Vintage clothes can be found anywhere from street markets to high-class vintage dress shops. You need a little patience and hard work in order to purchase the best-quality, and chic vintage outfits. Of course, you also have to be smart in choosing the right accessories, shoes and hair do to finish up your outfit. Vintage accessories and shoes are almost always also found in vintage clothing shops. These shops offer a wide variety of choices, depending on your preference and style as a person.

            The secret to nailing vintage fashion is to be yourself, know your style, pick the perfect colors, mix and match, and just be confident.

            Below are photographs which can give you an idea on how vintage fashion inspired from different decades should look like.
