Everyone has that one person that they know that’s always on the verge of something new or unique in the fashion world. Since fashion builds upon previous trends and styles the markets are a great avenue for seeking new fashion inspiration. Get more fashion savvy with these tips.
Quality over Quantity: one of the best things about vintage clothing is their craftsmanship. Since many pieces were made before the days of mass manufacturing you’ll find a better quality in nearly all vintage clothing versus modern clothing. Search for a couple of essential pieces that will enhance your wardrobe.
If the Shoe Fits… ever notice that wing tips, Mary Janes and retro heels are starting to make their way back into modern footwear? These are great items to look out for at the market to create a chic vintage modern look.
Sew-worthy pieces: if you’re considering doing alterations on a garment that you love examine the garment's fabric and the hems. Ask yourself, will alterations compromise the garment? Is this achievable? Keep a keen eye and look at the little things like the hems, buttons and zippers.
