Is Vintage Fashion Just Old Outdated Musty Clothes?

Posted by Sophia Florence On September - 1 - 2017204 views

When talking about vintage fashion Many assume that it’s just cheap, used, and outdated clothing. Well, they’d be wrong In this article, I’m going to address common misconceptions about vintage clothing and show you how it can be a good investment if you know how to treat it.

If You Wear vintage print you’ll look like you’re wearing a tablecloth.

If you’re trying to style vintage print chose a solid color that goes well with the print you choose. If you don’t and just pair vintage print with vintage print. It will  look like you just like you stole your grandma’s table cloth.  

 

Vintage Clothes Are Foul Smelling.

Well it depends on where you get them from most of the time they smell fine but occasionally it does come with a funky smelling odor commonly known as a Mothball smell the best way to get rid of it is by hanging them up outside and let them air out and catch some sun.

Vintage Clothes Are Usually Cheap And Used.

Contrary to popular belief, not all vintage fashion is affordable everyday cheap clothing that you can find at your local thrift store (Even though you can occasionally find a vintage gem there)

If you know your labels you could be making some serious cash from them. Most collectors buy vintage clothing for cheap from people that don’t know the true value of it. And sell it for hundreds often thousands. So you might wanna do your research on lesser known designer brand names( I say lesser known because people are obviously going to know the worth of a well-known brand such as Chanel or Louis Vuitton) Check out this Fashion label library it has brief history of almost every fashion label. So you’ll able to tell that that dusty old bag that’s selling for 10 dollars at your neighborhood garage sale is really worth hundreds.

And even if is cheap, Who doesn’t love a bargain?

Vintage Clothes Are Outdated.

A lot of modern day designers take inspiration from past designers work, So it doesn’t take much to make the original look like the copy besides, trends come in and out of style all the time so buy the time you buy that hot new outfit everyone’s already moved on to the next hot new trend. The best thing you can do is wear what you like.

 

What are your thoughts on vintage fashion? Did I change you mind on it?
