A celebration of love and creative vintage inspiration takes place every day on the streets of almost every village, town, suburb, and province across the world but how do they recreate the looks from the 20's, 30's, 40' and 50's with such style? We can reveal the secret here!
They put a MODERN spin on it
! Yes, we know how absurd this sounds, but to really pull off the classic Cool Girl Vintage Style you have to bring the Vintage into the modern day fashion circuit. Here's the kicker (and why this blog is the best fashion advice) you have to do this in the most subtle of ways so you do not lose the Vintage
, in Vintage Fashion.
Current fashion is mostly past styles reinvented. Although they may look like a completely new trend, they are usually always based on a style that was first seen many decades ago and this is why adding some modern twists to a typical vintage wardrobe can be easy… when you know how!
Modern fashion accessories are probably the easiest way to update your classic, high neck vintage dress or lace blouse. If you are new to this period style and only just beginning to work vintage into your wardrobe, bold colored jewelry, stylish bags, and contemporary heels will give you the confidence to pair the old with the new and be happy with the result.
Another great way to bring some more modern vibes to your outfits is to mix the eras - surprisingly, this can have the same effect as blending present-day clothing with vintage items (and sometimes works a little better). A different pattern or print, or a pop of color really can transform the look and have you being the envy of the vintage wearer's world.
