TREND: True Vintage

These days it is not hard to walk into an H&M or Forever 21 to find a vintage inspired outfit. Even though the outfit seems vintage it lacks the luster and historicism that a true vintage outfit entails. My favorite part of vintage clothing are the stories of how that special piece got to be in your hands. Whether you found a floral tunic worn by your mother in the '70s or purchased a T-shirt from a local consignment shop, vintage is the best way to go.

Graphic tees are one of the most common pieces that can be vintage. This Fashionisto was sporting a vintage graphic sweatshirt that he found while vintage shopping at a local Goodwill. The sweatshirt helps build character and adds a unique touch to his outfit. A classic pair of denim will always compliment a graphic shirt no matter what the print is. Next time you purchase a pair of jeans, try to find a pair that is an inch or two longer than your normal length so you are able to cuff the bottom. Cuffing the bottom of your jeans allows more emphasis to be placed on your shoes. If you are a Fashionisto try this pair of Levi jeans and for the Fashionista’s, try these skinny jeans from Lucky.

Accessorizing is not just for the ladies anymore this season. To fight the cold, try wrapping a similar plaid scarf around your neck. Colored eye frames or sunglasses are a huge trend right now as well and it is the perfect way to add that extra accent of color to your outfit. Try these Ray Ban sunglasses or these purple frames from Tiffany & Co.

Hint: When you are home for Thanksgiving break, rummage through your grandparent’s or parent’s boxed-up clothing to find a great vintage piece that you can add to your wardrobe.
