5 Radical Reasons to go Retro - Fashion Statement!

Over the past few years, vintage fashion and furniture has boomed in popularity. The signs are everywhere. More and more, you see young women sporting gran’s lace jacket being featured on street-style blogs. And (let’s face it) a vintage ottoman undeniably adds extra oomph to an average living room. If you can’t make it to the antique shop or local hospice, don’t worry. Head on over to Classifieds24-7, where shopping for vintage fashion is so much easier. Here are some reasons why buying (or even selling) retro items is the way to go:

1. Vintage fashion is unique. The secret to a winning wardrobe? Stock up on basic items and top it off with a handful of statement pieces – and nothing says “statement” quite like a piece of vintage clothing! Pairing your blue jeans with a faux-fur jacket or rocking up to a cocktail party in a 1920s flapper dress zooshes up your look in a snap and it’s guaranteed to make you a fashion stand-out.

2. Vintage fashion is classic. That little black dress your gran used to wear. That smart navy blazer your dad bought for his first job. Yep, still stylish. And why? Because vintage fashion is timeless and can only become classier with age. Top tip: Vintage is anything older than 20 years. If it still looks good after all that time, you can call that item a classic!

3. Vintage clothing is a major investment. There’s a huge market for collectable vintage fashion and many items – especially haute couture – have intrinsic value that only increases with age. Top tip: The best investments are items that are specific to certain fashion eras and just don’t get made the same way anymore. Think 1920s flapper dresses, 1950s wiggle dresses or those 1960s bellbottoms. Ka-ching!

4. Vintage fashion is high-quality fashion. These days clothes get churned out by factories like fast food. The best vintage gowns and suits are those that have been sewn by hand and feature finely selected textiles and stitching. Back then, a lot more attention was paid to detail. Forget forking out a ton of cash for the high-cost, average-quality dress everyone else is wearing; instead, save up for a top-class classic item that will stand out.

5.
But don’t take our word for it! Vintage fashion is also a hit with celebs and has been cropping up on the red carpet more and more. Stars who swear by classic styles include Kate Moss, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jared Leto, Chloe Sevigny, Agyness Deyn, Katy Perry, Solange Knowles, and even Angelina Jolie. Need we say more?
