Welcome to another Special Guest Feature on Vintage Indie. Today we welcome Penelopepup's Vintage Clothing shop for a look at this years fashion trends, by exploring past years vintage! Here's what Penelopepup's shop owner Jen, had to say.
The beauty of buying vintage clothing is that it allows you to easily
keep up with current fashion trends while saving money and keeping your
wardrobe uniquely you. Designers are constantly drawing inspiration
from the past and you can wear that inspiration for a fraction of the
cost of the designer piece while resting assured that the chances of
someone else showing up in the same outfit are slim to none.
Some of this years fashion trends that easily translate to vintage include-
Plaid prints- Usually saved for fall, but big on the runways for spring this year as well. Wear it bold with a vintage fitted blazer or add just a touch with a whimsical vintage plaid cap.
Floral prints- Big for spring this year from soft and sheer romantic to big, bold and colorful. Vintage dresses are a great place to find amazing floral prints from prim and proper 50's and bold 60's to soft 70's and over the top 80's.
Metallic's and sequins- Still going strong in 2008 and it's so easy to add a touch of sparkle with vintage. Go disco glam with a sequined top or add a touch of shimmer with a classic 60's metallic clutch (clutches are big this year as well).
Whether you choose to follow trends religiously, add just a few here and there or create your own, vintage has something to offer everyone. Especially those who like to save money and stay eco conscious while remaining fabulously fashionable. Happy shopping!
