Vintage Clothing Never Goes Out Of Style - Timeless Outfits For Anybody In Any Era


 
Fashion & Cosmetics
With trends in and out of fashion faster than they are placed on the racks, the fine line between 'hot' and vintage has been blurred. Any style from a previous era is considered as vintage clothing - which happens to inspire many of the up and coming trends. Many individual pieces of clothing are of vintage style or vintage inspiration but not what we’d call a true collectible. For an item to be considered as truly vintage, it must have hailed from an earlier age and survived the wear and tear of time. Vintage clothing is a collective term for second-hand itemized pieces that originated from the 1920s up to the 1990s. Sometimes synonymous to “vintage”, “retro” clothing are garments procured from the 60s and the 70s specifically. Anything before the 1920s is considered as an antique, meant to be preserved, even showcased. Anything after the 1990s on the other hand, which has been out of “vintage” reach, is still hideous.

A cycle of fashion trends is one determinant where certain styles are considered as outdated or vintage-chic. It used to have been a rotation of 50 years, cut down to 30, 20 and now, even 10. Turnovers from era to era are gaining speed and fast. Vintage clothing used to be limited to the 1970s and its preceding years, but now the 80s and the 90s are already making their comebacks. With huge tees and jumpers reemerging from the grunge era, and shoulder pads and bare midriffs from the disco age, the 21st century should be ready for a turnover soon. But vintage pieces are those that transcend current trends. Made from fashion designers representative of a particular era, they have transformed from second-hand garments into timeless collectibles.

There has been a recent surge in the vintage market with items being referred to as hard assets. In layman’s terms, the prices of these items are on the rise. With a new niche, mostly fashion forward women who can afford, the value of vintage clothing is quickly gaining reputable recognition. From readily accessible in thrift shops, second-hand gems like Dior, Versace and the like, now cost an arm and a leg in special shops mostly found online. Run by middlemen who take the liberty of hand-picking and restoring vintage items, these online shops cater to specific target markets. For example, a shop dedicated to mod and retro will only feature designer pieces from the 60s and the 70s. It is through this system that “vintage” will never be outdated.

James Walmsley is a marketing assistant at Phix Clothing, a UK-based online retailer which specialises in trendy and fashionable vintage clothing and retro clothing for men and women. All clothes are shipped worldwide.

You can either learn SEO or get an exeeripnced SEO Expert to do the job for you as it is not just about writing and publishing the articles but good niche research should be done first so you set yourself on the right path. Each article should also be properly optimized if you want to see results

I absolutely love gold outftis, but I think they can go very, very wrong if overdone. This is why whenever I wear gold outftis, I try to stick to one colour scheme and keep the shoes and accessories simple! Gold is such a rich, beautiful tone, and overwhelming it is the last thing I want. I would style this gorgeous D G dress with nude/skin-toned, close-toed pumps, to keep with the same colour range as the gold. As much as I am a shoe fiend, I don't think they should be the focal point of this outfit.To cinch the waist and add more shape, I would use a thin, nude belt. I would avoid any sort of coloured, metallic, or obvious buckle again keeping it simple. The jewelry is where I'd add the pop of colour. I'm picturing a turquoise tear-drop pendant that skims just below the colar bones. With a gold chain, of course. I cannot bring myself to put silver and gold together *shudder*. No bangles this time, but I'd wear my usual gold rings. Talking specifics, a gold knuckle ring and simpler gold band on one hand, and a large turquoise stone centre ring on the other, to match the necklace. My look is ALMOST pulled together, I swear! I would keep a nude lip with a bit of gloss, peach cheeks, and simple eye makeup a neutral-toned palette and a coat of mascara. I'm very proud of my long, thick Asian hair, so I would wear it down with large, natural-looking waves. My long dark hair is another reason why I would want to keep it simple with accessories! There's already a large contrast between the black of my hair, and the rich gold colour of the dress. I follow you on Fashionista Talk (and Chictopia, if that counts). - Kathy
