The word vintage may strike some people as old clothes pulled out from a grandmother’s trunk or great aunt’s chest. While this may hold true to a certain extent, the more all-encompassing meaning of vintage is any piece of unique clothing that connotes value. You can have a vintage designer skirt that nobody else has, or a one-of-a-kind vintage blouse purchased at rock-bottom price. Vintage clothing usually has a heaping helping of prints that may bring to mind the funky and colourful retro era, or classic elegant style characterized by lots of lace or tulle. Think cute and lovely vintage-inspired clothes like a lightweight jacket with a tie-waist and ruffles running down the bodice right next to the buttons, or an animal print blouse or coat, or a dreamy lace and tulle vintage wedding dress with a full swing skirt. When choosing vintage clothing, a fashion-savvy shopper sees something beautiful which can be perfectly coordinated with another piece of apparel and create a fabulous look.
