Choosing vintage style clothing allows you to create the image you want to create, one that is uniquely you.
Making a statement means not finding others wearing your same outfit. We all cringe at the thought of seeing ourselves coming and going. I remember, at my high school graduation party, seeing another girl wearing the exact same dress as me. I wanted to disappear.
You can avoid that disaster by choosing a vintage style dress and pairing it with a genuine vintage handbag or shoes.
Or choose vintage-like accessories to add to an authentic vintage dress.
In either case, you are placing elements that surprise and add to the costume. You are making a fashion statement. You are recognizing truly dated clothes and adding the touch that brings them up-to-date.
There’s lots of leeway for you to personalize your style by picking what is comfortable and looks right on you.
You can also create your own vintage style clothing by using something you currently own and redesigning it with a updated flair.
Or you can take a picture of a genuine vintage dress and make it or have someone make it for you adding an up-to-date fabric and design.
By going vintage, you don’t have to look like anyone else. But, buyer beware, you also don’t want to look old-fashioned.
Vintage style clothing consists of pieces that are inspired by authentic fashions of yesteryear. Making a fashion statement requires a style sense and a knowledge of fashion history.
