Why Vintage Is One Of The Most Wanted Clothing Of Today?
We all know what they say: “Fashion runs on a cycle.” What’s hot today will be famous again years from now, and it was the “it-thing” years ago. Suitable examples of these are the use of leggings and tights, Peter Pan collars, high-waist skirts and pants, maxi dresses and much more. This is what brings us to what is most wanted by men and women of different ages today – vintage clothing. Vintage clothing is just another word for old clothes. They’re both classy and classic which means it shouldn’t go out of style. It’s timeless in a sense that whenever these kinds of clothes are worn, it would always be a hot topic.
Vintage Clothing is now the new modern. You can look through the world and figure out that more and more fashion icons or enthusiasts are going for the vintage even in their accessories and gadgets (e.g. Lomography cameras). But although this style is as old as it seems, vintage clothing need not be entirely old such as those you inherited from your grandparents and stuff (although that would make your clothes legitimately vintage). Many of the retail stores nowadays are adopting the vintage style on their racks like producing modernised jean jackets and leather shirts. Chiffon fabrics which became trending during the 1920s are now being incorporated into dresses, skirts, vests and even cuffs and accessories. And when it comes to knitwear, everything is timely whether it’s a bonnet or a sweater. Although the knitted fabric is not so vintage due to its debut in the 1980’s, its style seems classic enough, reminding you of the days our grannies loved crocheting.
What further makes vintage clothing the best in all styles of today is not that it is to mix and match with other clothing pieces. Say, you need a swift styling do for the for the impromptu date, you can pair your classics with any pieces in your closet or clothes rack. This brings us back again to the outstanding attributes of this kind of style. Matching a simple tee with a vintage classic, like a leather blazer can instantly amp up your style, as it would look with just your jeans or shorts. A chic chiffon skirt paired with a radically printed top and high-cut boots can turn your sweet image into a Goth or rock star.
They can say whatever fashion statement you have; it says something about you or how you feel at the time. Before, vintage clothing used to be connoting an image of old age and just that. Right now, it can send a variety of messages as you want. You can go from rock star chick, to preppy and sweet, to sporty and active to formal or casual or chill and much more. And it’s good because you never have to keep them in the chest to put away. You can wear them as often as long as you want because it would least likely go out of style. Besides, fashion runs on a cycle. Stores may suggest trends, but these classics will always remain in style!
