We now know that the vintage style is fashionable! Yes, with the return of the eighties, nineties and the 2000s, iconic pieces from past decades are raining down on our wardrobes. The sixties and seventies are also decades of choice to dress. And it’s not the fashion designers who will say the opposite. Vintage has become bankable, it is a real trademark for some, an asset of charm and authenticity that is good to wear! In short, dressing vintage for women or men is great, but it’s always a bit risky. Unless you have a perfect command of fashion codes, you must know some rules for dressing vintage without seeming to have gone back to the past. Because indeed, if vintage is good, you have to know how to use it sparingly or bring it up to date with our current trends.
