Vintage fashion never seems to go out of, well… fashion. Beloved by an impressive list of style-conscious celebs, ranging from Lily Allen and Alexa Chung to Kate Moss, it lets devotees match and mix things up a bit with an edgy, wry and ironic attitude combined with a delicious smattering of eccentricity and sheer individualism.
And the chaps get in on the act, too! Check out the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch and Matt Smith leading the charge as impeccably dressed vintage ambassadors on and off-screen. Then there’s the sharp suits and antics of those Mad Men.
Why You Should Buy Vintage This Spring
Vintage Is Always Current
Vintage manages to stay ahead of the curve by always being behind it. It’s effortless, cool and timeless in style – a must-have addition to any girl or boy’s fashion arsenal. Created from quality materials that have stood the test of time, and designs and cuts that transcend each passing fad, seek out iconic pieces to work well with any new looks you’re planning this spring. And, oh, the glamour they ooze!
It’s Better For You and The Environment
Vintage lets you look a million dollars without costing you or the environment a packet. At a time when an estimated £140 million worth (or 350,000 tonnes) of used clothes goes into UK landfill each year, vintage could be labelled as the ultimate in sustainable fashion. What’s more, snapping up a classic find is great for a spot of creative reworking and adapting to fit into your own unique style – vintage is very versatile. So grab yourself a sewing machine and get busy.
It’s Harder Wearing
As ‘living, breathing’ snapshots of trends from yesteryear that still hold serious sartorial currency today, these hard-working, hard-wearing threads are great investment pieces that will always find fashionable buyers in the years to come. So you can wear your things for a while and when you’ve had enough of them, stick them back on Preloved for FREE and find a buyer in your area.
