Vintage Outfits

Vintage outfits are pieces of clothing that are a minimum of 25 years old. Vintage often refers to clothing worn from previous eras, ranging anywhere from the 1920s all the way to the 1980s. Vintage lovers often spend hours browsing through thrift stores for the perfect retro and pin up inspired pieces, going home with only two or three pieces of decent quality, if they’re lucky.

If you’re into vintage you probably enjoy pushing past modern trends and going for your own style. Vintage clothing ranges from fun and flirty 50s schoolgirl dresses to wide leg jeans and floral shirts from the 1970s to swing dresses and sexy fitted pencil skirts. Many vintage outfits are paired with modern pieces including retro or rockabilly style boots and stiletto shoes, modern skirts or even skinny jeans or leggings.

Since many of us don’t have time to browse thrift stores for the perfect vintage outfits, there are all sorts of online boutiques that create vintage-inspired pieces with a modern or retro touch. Modcloth uses popular vintage styles and mixes them with modern trends in dresses, skirts, outerwear and home accessories, while Lucky Diva takes a mainstream approach to the sassy vintage sailor look. Babygirlboutique and What Katie did are two boutiques that focus heavily on the feminine, girly and fun styles of vintage eras, particularly the 1920s through 1950s. For a vintage look with a rockabilly edge, check out Suicide Glam and Cats Like Us for the more rebellious and sassy approach. Loving the look of a classic greaser girl?

There is more to the perfect vintage outfit than the outfit, too. Complete your look with some red lips, bold eyeliner and voluminous curls to your hair for a true vintage girl look.
