I am so into thrifting one of a kind pieces these days, so I am going to share few tips on how to search for and style vintage clothing. Vintage pieces are key to completing your own unique look. It is easy to combine vintage clothing with new clothes to create a whole new look.
My wardrobe consists of jeans and T-shirts on most days. Thrifting T-shirts makes it easy to have funky and fun tops to go with my jeans. While I am always on the search for the perfect fitting shirt, it is easy to find lots of other goodies in vintage shops.
Anyone can style vintage into their wardrobe. I am wearing a Mickey vintage T-shirt with some thrifted cropped wide leg black Levi jeans. I have my T-shirt tied up, but they also work perfectly tucked into high-waisted jeans or skirts.
With a funky, bright colored T-shirt, I opted for minimalist jeans and accessories. The black jeans contrast the pink of my shirt well and the jeans keep it casual for daytime wear. I added a belt as an accessory to give my figure some shape. Keeping the belt black to blend in with the jeans, but also having the silver details on the belt helps add the extra touch. If you are opting for the tucked in look, a thin detailed belt will also help bring the outfit all together.
Living in California, sunglasses are a must for every daytime look. I grabbed some retro frames with tinted blue lenses to pull the look together. Mine are from Urban Outfitters, but you can find similar ones here. As for my bag, I went for my trusted Madewell crossbody. This bag is always my go-to because it fits everything I could possibly need. Also, if I am not feeling the crossbody, the straps are removable and you can carry it by the small handles. Finally, the shoes! Going with a funkier look, I choose some white booties for summertime to complete the look. I think the white boots are a great contrast to the black jeans and can brighten up your whole look.
Overall, styling vintage pieces are simple. Combine new and old for a great new look.
