Mixing Vintage With Modern

When we say vintage, it actually varies from decade to decade.I am actually in love with 70's blouses for a lady-like look and 80's sportswear tops for a relaxed vibe!
So in terms of what to wear with vintage, it doesn't have to be a 100% vintage look. You can mix and match with modern items and play with accessories. For example, I am wearing my vintage 70's shirt paired with casual and boyfriend'style cargo pants, feminine shoes and vintage clutch.
So to summarize, you've got so many different options of vintage. For daytime, go for something more sporty and relaxed, all the way through to a more lady-like evening wear  glitzy tops or lace dresses. Happy Friday beauties!!!

  9. I agree, I believe to successfully wear vintage, you need to mix it up and play with the whole high to low thing. There are certainly some people who can pull off an entire vintage look, but for the rest of us, it works much better when there is a combination of contemporary fabrics + vintage.

  22. Definitely agree with you, it's good to mix modern if you're going to wear vintage. I personally really dislike when an entire outfit is vintage, it looks too kitschy for me!
