STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Vintage Advantage

I am the ultimate advocate of all things vintage — whether it’s thrift, consignment or estate sale, there’s nothing better than an amazing piece with a past. Thrifting isn’t just a verb; it’s a lifestyle for cash-conscious Fashionistas looking for one-of-a-kind pieces, and the fashion world has taken notice. Retailers including Urban Outfitters and Free People both offer incredible vintage collections filled with authentic band tees, designer duds and luxe leather goods. Whether you’re digging around your local Salvation Army or shopping online, this is a trend to note.

This Fashionista donned pieces that were both awesome and personally meaningful. She sported a cool tribal knit paired with a vintage plaid from a long-gone iconic department store and an authentic uniform from World War Two. While the top and plaid were interesting enough, the top is actually her grandfather’s that he wore during his years in the military (so cool). Also noteworthy are her awesome accessories; she wore a vintage Louis Vuitton, a vintage locket and cute statement earrings to tie everything together. The trick to making the trend work is by working with your current closet to incorporate on-trend staples with retro pieces. This Fashionista kept it fresh and contemporary with a great pair of slim denim and rugged all-weather boots.

There’s something incredibly appealing about vintage. Whether it’s the fact that this Rick Springfield concert tee probably saw the '80s heartthrob perform during his prime or this vintage Givenchy wool duster is still just as chic as it was 30 years ago, secondhand shopping yields unique steals. Go forth and have a little fun at your local charity shop, you never know what you’ll find in the racks.
