How to Wear Vintage without Looking Like You Stepped Out a Time Machine

Vintage clothing can get a bad rap. While I appreciate a garment that’s 20+ years old, I totally get that some people think the pieces are outdated, tattered and hard to wear without looking costume-y. It’s totally possible to style vintage threads in a modern way. Because remember, fashion is cyclical, so what’s currently trending has already been done.

Here’s how I styled a few vintage clothes in a fun, even edgy way.

Thrifty Threads: The Perfect Bootcut Jeans for Fall {and they’re $30!}

I’m a skinny jean lover, so I was a bit surprised when bootcut jeans started to trend. But, I’m here for them! They’re actually a nice departure from the skinnies. And last month I found a perfect pair.

Like most women, I kinda hate shopping for jeans. My dilemma is they’re too long and/or I have gaping at the waist. But whether you’re a size 2 or 20, it just seems difficult to find the one.

But these Denizen bootcut jeans from Target fit perfectly. No tailoring needed and less than $30!

Thrifty Threads: The $6 Old Navy Skirt that Wowed Me

Sometimes you find a garment that just blows you away. Maybe it’s the actual garment and sometimes it’s your disbelief that a certain store carries such a cute piece.

That’s what happened when I went thrift shopping two weeks ago. I found this cobalt blue full midi skirt and fell in love. It was the color. The cut. The knee length split. And I was amazed to discover it was from Old Navy. Yes, Old Navy! I’ve never shopped at Old Navy {besides their dollar flip flops}, but I was surprised such a chic piece originated in their store.

Thrifty Threads: Summer to Fall Style

It’s officially fall and while I may be rocking layers and chunky sweaters in a few weeks, for now I’m still hanging on to my summer threads. Well, with the addition of a fall wardrobe staple.

During my Salvation Army thrift shopping trip two weeks ago {I shop on Wednesdays when most items are half off!}, I scored big! And a few of the pieces I bought included an embellished crop top from H&M and a sheer maxi skirt from Zara. They were the perfect pieces for my latest Thrifty Threads outfit.

Thrifty Threads: How to Wear White After Labor Day

By now we all know {or at least I hope we do!} that not wearing white after Labor Day is a total fashion myth. You can wear any color you want during any time of the year. It’s really all about the material, not the color.

This week’s Thrifty Threads post is an ode to the girls who wear what they want, when they want, like this head to toe white look that features a mix of thrifted pieces and cheap chic department store finds.
