“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are” Gianni Versace


We buy clothes all the time and don’t really think about it. It has become so easy nowadays, you can buy and pay literally with a few clicks of your mouse while sipping your cinnamon latte. How many times have you ordered something and within a month or not even that you were over it (guilty!)? It’s a whole different feeling with Vintage. Keep scrolling down to find out more.

What is the meaning of vintage?

Generally speaking, clothing which was produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 20 years before the present day is considered vintage. Retro, short for retrospective, or “vintage style,” usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous era.

So yes posting last year’s fashion outfits does not technically classify as vintage unless you are wearing your mum’s dress from the 90’s.

Why to buy vintage clothing

♥ It’s the opportunity for reinvention

♥ You can’t afford this £1,000 dress? Then why not hunt down the original inspiration…

♥ Desire to recreate familiarity, or felicity, in a world that is rapidly changing and increasingly impersonal

♥ Feeling of accomplishment. With vintage there is an extra sense of serendipity – to find something you love, which fits, is rarer than walking into a shop with racks of the same pieces in every size – but that winning feeling is so much greater

♥ It’s a great way to make you feel distinctive and express your personal style, not that of millions of people.

Don’t get me wrong, I love modern fashion and that accessivity that some years ago we could only dream about while watching fashion shows and celebrities on TV. The problem with new fashion now is that it is horribly ubiquitous. In the past, splashing out on a designer piece assured you some level of exclusivity. But now, with the same luxury fashion collections being sold by almost every online retailer, spending hundreds of pounds on something so widely available doesn’t bring the same cachet it used to.

And Guys let’s not even talk about the same-dress nightmare …

    I love the Joe Browns outfit, it is perfect! I think you are right with everything you wrote and we definitely sometimes should overthink our buying habits. To buy vintage pieces makes absolutely the difference! I have a few vintage pieces I like 🙂
