Fashion can be an expensive matter. With the current economical crisis going on it’s a good thing that vintage is back in style. Although celebrities are probably not suffering the consequences of tough economy they are certainly taking into consideration that vintage is the new black… and thank goodness! We can go back to digging in our closets, visiting second hand clothes stores and free-classifieds online to follow this year’s fashion trend.
It’s a style that really allows you to play around and mix and match very unique items. It will make you look extravagant and classy at the same time. Many are the celebrities who love vintage clothing and pull off amazing looks.
Take Janelle Monae, for example. Her black and white style, her ruby red lips, her pearls and vests, her top hats, her oxford shoes and, last but not least, her fierce pompadour, they all give her an amazing vintage look.
Another guy is Outkast’s André 3000, who really knows how to put together his blower and newboys hats, suspenders, bow ties and old school patterns. They give him a very charming eclectic edge.
Another amazing example is Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade. That guy is a real champion at mixing and matching his super-fashionable items with old school vests, bow ties, retro glasses and pocket squares.
A bit like Bruno Mars and Will.I.Am.
Going back to the ladies, Dawn Richard is another pro at creating amazing looks mixing and matching vintage bold items with classic modern ones. She also loves to wear vintage headwear like headbands and turbans!
Rihanna is another amazing celebrity to look at if you want to find some inspiration, also considering that she changes her image often enough to always have some new stuff to look at, whether is a sexy pin-up look, a classy Audrey Hepburn style or an English skin heady one.
So, there you go. As you can see, there’s plenty of inspiration out there for you. All you have to do is to start looking for items that you like and that suit you, visiting second hand clothes stores, websites or your family closet.
