Vintage Misconceptions – vintage isn’t modern

Many people think that vintage clothing is “old fashioned” – I very often hear comments like ” I will look like my granny” or that “it’s frumpy” but that is not the case. At the end of the day vintage clothes are just clothes and can be worked with a modern feel.

Designers are always drawing inspiration from the past so what better way to stay “on trend” with original items that were the inspiration??

Editors, celebrities and fashion insiders are always mixing vintage with designer and high street pieces creating a modern and stylish look.

Laura Bailey – contributing editor at Vogue makes a “granny” skirt look funky with great boots.
Giovanna in a 70’s dress made modern and on trend.
Olivia – the skirt is a classic A line from the 70’s but hers cost her a fortune no doubt?
Such a typical vintage print but a modern look.
Vintage velvet jackets are a great way to layer up you look.

So that knocks that myth out of the water – vintage is certainly not frumpy as these examples of true fashionista style shows!!
