Modernizing The Vintage Trend – @Styledbybie #MGGuest

March was one h*ll of a month; having to shuttle between several job deadlines, my vintage store (@VintageMenNG) having its own outdoor sales event, meetings and of course personal issues that arise daily. Hence, my little disappearance of the blog but not to worry TheStyleTrain is always here. 

I try as much as possible to remain in my style sphere whilst pulling different trends, rather than going for the typical 70’s trend i opted for the contemporary vintage style

I hear from people who have yet to take the plunge into the world of vintage clothing is that, if they do, they will look like they are wearing a costume. Here are 3 tips for wearing vintage while avoiding exactly that.

• Pick a certain Era: Each era will have had its own distinctive style- and it’s down to you to decide what style you want to go for. Generally speaking, the latter half of the 20th century tends to go better with a contemporary wardrobe, though clothes from earlier in the century

• Own it:To avoid looking like you’ve just travelled forward in time, try mixing up your vintage clothing with more contemporary pieces as well. A vintage short sleeve, or a classic Oxford shirt, can still work nicely with a pair of skinny jeans and sneakers.


• Accessorize: Pairing vintage clothing with decidedly modern shoes, bags and sunglasses is an easy way to dramatically ground.


I hope you had as much fun reading through, i will like to hear from you Styledbybie@gmail.com.
