Throughout the entire fashion industry, there is an unchallenged respect for vintage items of clothing. A vintage couture piece will be more highly regarded than a modern piece, especially if it is a one-off classic. Similarly, items passed down from previous familial relations will encounter high levels of street style credibility.
These two Fashionistas have reworked vintage skirts in to their wardrobes — both at varying lengths yet both with a great result. By mixing in current pieces from their wardrobes, they re-vamp and individualise their own respective outfits.
The Fashionista on the left combines a high-waisted, pleated mini skirt with a fitted black top and cross-body bag. The Fashionista on the right opted for a mid-length skirt with a bold, bright pattern and a bright yellow top. By pairing their skirts with flats (try these, from Tony Bianco), both of them achieve an eclectic, unique appearance that is perfect for around campus or lunch and shopping with friends.
Skirts such as these can be found at your local second hand vintage wear store or your mother's/grandmother's closet. Often a bit of tailoring will be required, especially due to varying sizes.
Revamp a piece of vintage clothing this week and mix the old with the new to create your own unique look. It's fun and easy, and perfect for students on a college budget!
