7 Reasons to Buy Vintage Clothing ...


What are the reasons to buy vintage clothing?

People who love the past eras of fashion, or who enjoy dressing in an individual way, have always enjoyed shopping vintage.

And with vintage styles providing inspiration for designers, the catwalks offer plenty of expensive imitations.

But you can buy the originals at much lower prices.

Here are just some of the reasons to buy vintage clothing …2

1. Individual Style

One of the best reasons to buy vintage clothing is if you don't want to look like everyone else.

Choosing vintage clothes means that you can be sure that you won't see anyone else wearing the same thing (it's so embarrassing when that happens!).

Vintage is a great choice for a special event.

2. Stylish

Do you feel that clothes are far too casual these days, and that few people have style?

Do you love the way people dressed in old movies?

Then vintage is for you.

You'll find everything from lovely dresses to beautiful bags.

And even though the clothes are from past decades, you'll look really original.2

3. Quality

In the past, there was no such thing as disposable fashion.

Clothes were made to last, and people bought garments that they would be able to wear again and again.

Vintage clothing is often much better quality than the garments of today, which fall apart after only a few wears.2

4. Eco-Friendly

The clothing industry causes a lot of pollution and damage to the environment, especially fast fashion that is designed to be worn a few times and then discarded.

These clothes won't be any good for resale.

By buying vintage, you are helping to make a stand against disposable fast fashion;

buying second-hand clothing is very eco-friendly.

5. Treasure Trove

Savvy vintage shoppers visit their favorite shops regularly, to see the new stock before everyone else does.

But whenever you go in, you'll find all kinds of vintage treasures.

As well as clothes, most vintage shops sell accessories like gloves, shoes and jewellery.

You never know what you'll find there, which makes every trip interesting and intriguing.
