Vintage never goes out of fashion!

The idea of vintage is great! It allows clothes to be recycled, trends to be revisited, and normally allows you to pick up an unique piece of fashion, that no-one else will own, but everyone will be envious of! Although there are a few do's and dont's for those who are not entirely confident of what is hot and what is really not!

  • Do buy men's vintage oversized tees and jumpers, as they create a sexy, laid back look.
  • Don't mix too many different looks, choose a decade that suits your style, otherwise you have the risk of looking like your granma! (if she's stylish, thats fine!).
  • Do buy things you love, which are too big, as size can be altered.
  • Don't wear it head-to-toe vintage, or you'll look like your off to a fancy dress party.
  • Do think about catwalk trends, as designers often use vintage styles as influences for collections.
  • Don't impulse buy without checking the return policy, other wise your stuck with it!
Heres a great example of a vintage oversized top from Playboy, costing only £20! Even celebrities have decided to start rummerging through rails of their local vintage shops to find the best unique statement peiecs, such as Florence Welch, Peaches Geldof, Alexa Chung, and Poloma Faith .
