Today is National Old Stuff Day, so what better time to champion the case for vintage clothing, in this age of burgeoning resourcefulness?
With many 70’s, 80’s and 90’s looks now coming back into fashion, the wardrobe archives can often yield some pleasantly trendy surprises!
Far from being ‘old-fashioned’, many of the key trends of these eras, now wouldn’t necessarily look out of place on the modern High Street.
Granted, not all the styles can make this leap seamlessly into our everyday wardrobes, but those that can... will lend advantages beyond the style stakes!
In particular, an eye for second hand and vintage can help to lower both our ‘fashion footprint’ AND our overall clothing spending.
Not only this, ‘old clothes’ also boast a kind of nostalgia that more and more of us are finding comfort in at this time. The chance to channel the vibes of much simpler times, and all through the statement-making medium of shoulder pads and sequins, no less!
