How to style vintage with modern daywear


Contributed by Anna Lee, Youtuber and Salvation Army Thrift Store Creative Expert.

A unique way to wear vintage is to mix it in with modern trendy clothing pieces. I always love mixing my vintage items into my outfits because it stands out from the rest and I find it so cool to be rocking items from the past because it has so much history and story behind who previously owned that item.

Today we’ll be styling this beautiful sparkly 70’s pants that I found at my local Salvation Army Thrift Store. I decided to go for a boho edgy look and pair the brown pants with some black accent pieces. Since the pants were high waist (which are my favourite type of pants to wear) I decided to wear black boots with heels so that it will elongate my legs. I decided to throw a cami with a moto styled jacket, wear some of my favourite rings and of course a fedora hat to give it a bohemian feel. 

I highly recommend trying this out for yourself and cater vintage pieces to your everyday style. There’s endless ways of mixing and matching vintage clothing into modern daywear!
