3 Simple Tricks to Dress Modern Vintage Chic
Modern vintage is a fashion style that allows you to blend vintage wardrobe pieces with contemporary clothing items. You can mix and match bold prints, collared shirts, and high waist skirts and bottoms, and use lace and ruffles textures to achieve a super feminine and chic modern vintage look.
If you are just starting out and you don’t really know where to begin, then the best place to look in your own closet to assess what you already own. The trick is to look for high waist jeans, plain pencil skirts, cardigans, shawls, scarfs with polka dot and leopard patterns, button-ups blouses, and spaghetti strapped tops that have a contemporary feel to them, and mix with other items that have a vintage appeal.
