Remember Bigger Size Means Opportunity.
If you try on something that is too saggy or baggy, you can always find a way to make it fit your body. You can belt it or tuck it. You can grab a sewing kit to alter the vintage or pay a tailor to change into a modern piece of clothing.
Think I Will Wear, Not Costume.
There is a fine line between wearing vintage successfully and looking like an extra in one of the Austin Powers movies. Look for pieces that will tie in with current trends and you will actually wear more than once.
Don’t be afraid to ask addition questions when shopping at vintage store or online. Whether you are asking about the history of the garment or asking how to clean and store the piece, vintage shop owners will have answers.
