And for the diehard vintage fashion lovers, we have some tips on how to infuse vintage clothing into your daily workplace clothing.
Look for flexible and evergreen pieces
When picking up vintage clothing, be particular that you pick up only the evergreen and the sober styles in solid and neutral colors, which can be easily embedded into everyday workplace clothing. The usual items that you should be looking for are skirts, long dresses, jackets and accessories. Instead of picking up exquisite styles, look for sober designs which are less likely to go out of fashion.
Vintage clothing is an investment
Remarkably, there are some vintage styles which never go out of fashion such as the boxy channel style jackets, woolen suits and leather sports coats. Once you pick up the right pieces of vintage clothing they will last you for years, however the key to the whole affair is picking up the right pieces.
Till a few decades back, polyester and rayon were the most popular fabrics used in fashion wear. However, as of today these fabrics are somewhat unacceptable both in terms of fashion and professionalism. So look for vintage clothing that is in natural fabrics like cotton, wool and silk. And as for the colors, leave the vibrant shades and heavily embellished accessories for parties, making some simple choices for everyday work-wear.
Learn to wear vintage clothing
There is no fancy dress party going on at your office, so avoid decking up in vintage clothing right from head to toe. You need to learn to mix and match vintage clothing and accessories with the present day business casuals, for an apposite professional outlook.
