Introducing Vintage Into Your Wardrobe

The easiest way to bring vintage into your wardrobe is by using accessories. I have my personal favorite accessories (hats being my current obsession) but there are so many different accessories you can use to get the vintage look you want — and in some cases you don't even need to go for actual vintage; reproduction can still give the same impact.

My personal favorite, I'm sad that hat wearing has fallen from grace and people don't understand them anymore. For a great 1920's look you could wear a cloche hat like this one from Mungopark on Etsy ($125) or for a more androgynous look a men's vintage trilby could be worn with a white button down shirt some skinny jeans and a vest. Not only that but fascinators have become increasingly popular.

Worn as a belt, around your head or tied at your neck these can be worn year round. While I prefer the 1950's look of a scarf tied at the neck, a Rosie the Riveter look can be created by just tying a scarf around you head. Not only that but Turbans where very popular during the 1940's and that look can easily be reproduced with a vintage scarf and some hair pins.
