In addition to “where did you find that vintage piece?” the other most commonly asked question I get is “where can I find a modern knock off of that vintage piece?” All modern fashion and style are inspired by vintage design so modern knock offs are available. Like everything in life, I have my favorites so I’m sharing those with you.
I like to say jumpsuits are the new dresses. A jumpsuit in a luxe fabric can be black tie ready with a few accessories, plus you can dress down a knit jumpsuit with booties. Don’t buy just one, get a few!
2. Oversized Blazer
Oh how I love an oversized blazer! Not only does it look great draped over a dress, but it makes for a great top when you cinch it in the waist with a belt. So good, right?
3. Flare or Wide Leg Pants
If you’re searching for flattering and versatile pants, flares and wide leg are #amazeballs! If they come in a high-waist, even better. Tuck in a striped tee and you’re set to go! Although cotton blend pants are most versatile, I love the new trend of suede and velvet pants.
4. Mini Dress
A mini dress is one of my favorite pieces to buy vintage because I wear them all the time. When shopping for a new piece, I love Self Portrait dresses because they have the feminine allure of vintage pieces, but they are modern pieces you’ll wear over and over again.
5. Striped Tee
This is a given! A striped tee is a classic, has always been a classic and will always be a classic. I prefer a striped tee in tissue soft turtleneck. I love layering it under a chunky sweater or blazer and tucked into a leather skirt for a crisp look.
