Mixing Vintage and Modern for Spring

March 2, 2014

Yay! Spring is just around the corner and although in my mind I’ve been planning my spring outfits for ages, it’s probably OK to start sharing ideas here now.

One of the most important things for me when buying and wearing vintage is to think about what accessories I can wear and this includes things I can pick up on the high street, so I thought I’d share a little outfit I put together for the spring, which features a fabulous vintage dress and brooch matched with a few high street accessories…

1940s floral dress – £40 – Love Miss Daisy, 

Embellished Floppy Hat – £30 – Miss Selfridge,

Light Pink Cardigan – £9.99 – New Look

Wedge Court Shoes – £54.99 – Clarks

Vintage Sarah Coventry Brooch – £45 – Rock My Vintage

Clear Sunglasses – £5 – Florence and Fred

Follow the Leader Necklace – £17.50 – Eclectic Eccentricity

Contrast Trim Handbag – £29.99 – New Look

It’s sometimes easy to forget that when wearing vintage clothes you don’t always have to create a replica vintage outfit. Even a 70 year old dress can be dressed in a very up to date way. With my selection you could just pick out a couple of elements like the dress shoes and hat or for warmer days the dress, bag and sunglasses.

Do you mix vintage and modern or stick to one or the other?

    The pink dress is very pretty. I really like mixing up old and new myself.

    I love that look! It is calling out for a garden party to go with it. Feel warmer just looking at it!

    I do more mixing than a bartender! 🙂 I love vintage, repro, 80s does 40/50s, and modern vintage inspired/appropriate pieces each in different ways and couldn’t imagine cutting any of those important categories from my wardrobe. Each helps me put together the solidly mid-century inspired looks I adore the most.
