Style Panel: How to wear vintage, for beginners

4 comments

Despite how widely worn and loved vintage clothes are, some of us still get that familiar icky feeling when entering a second hand shop. The racks seem endless (and not in a good way), the air seems stuffy and the amazing finds are not a sure thing. Nonetheless, vintage shopping is still one of the cheapest, most eco-friendly and fun ways to get in on the trends you love. Moreover, it will ensure that you wont see your outfit doppelganger around every corner. To ease you into the treasure hunt, we asked our Style Panel, now including Vancouver’s Alicia Quan of Alicia Fashionista how to wear vintage.

    WOOHOO! My fave “styling” topic: vintage! You ladies styled it perfectly, though my top 3 looks this week are from Gracie, Chloe & Kristin! Great job, everyone!

    Just a thought – vintage is not the same as second hand. Not a bad article, I just think it would be improved and more accurate if all mention of “vintage” was changed to “second hand.”

    At Shoppalu we carry about 80% vintage that we lovingly clean and tailor, so if you get that “ick” feeling going into a vintage store, we’ll do the dirty work for you. We clean everything before sending it to you.
