We’ve already tapped into the key ways to freshen up your Fall wardrobe this season, but since it’s Vintage Month, we thought we would apply some of the seasonal trends to a few of our favorite vintage picks. Because, after all, not only is shopping vintage a great way to shop sustainably and integrate one-of-a-kind character into your closet, it also provides an opportunity to be more fashion forward than ever. Read on and swoon.
Metallics are a super simple way to add a little bit extra oomph to any outfit. These beautiful ivory vintage Stuart Weitzman pumps do just that in the most subtle yet effective way, while checking off all the other details we love in a shoe right now: sleek silhouette, almond toe and blocked heel. It’s ’90s minimalism to a tee.
For those wanting to really dive into this trend, this taupe metallic shirt makes a big splash. No pockets, front button enclosure and insanely easy to style. Plus, the rich color basically makes it a neutral, so it goes with everything. Try it with disco dance moves.
A large, comfy coat is a win in two ways: it keeps you warm on crisp days and it’s the perfect pulled-together topper. The men’s wear-inspired piece also channels one of our favorite shapes from the ’80s, like this vintage, calf-skimming, oatmeal one by Pepe does. Okay, that’s three ways.
This vintage cotton hooded coat offers a lightweight option in the trend, with its relaxed fit and straight hem.
It’s all about texture this season and this vintage tank does it totally right. Super soft and in a classic cut, it is as adorable as it is easy to wear (and easy on the skin… ahhh).
Okay, so who didn’t want to be Penny in Almost Famous? Well, now you can channel your inner groupie in this perfect Penny Lane Jacket. In a rich burnt orange color and with a shearling collar, everything about it is also right on trend.
Halston was THE brand of the ’70s and this vintage Halston cashmere knit dress is relieving all of our era envy, while staying totally contemporary. The luxurious dress, which has a buttoned up mandarin collar, comes in a dusty pink — one of this season’s most coveted shades.
For a more structured take on the soft hue, there’s this linen service jacket. Wear it layered or buttoned up all on its own. We’re blushing at all the options.
Turtlenecks really are the best — you can layer them, wear them on their own and they’re multi-seasonal, working for fall all the way through to winter. This vintage ribbed silk mockneck is pure perfection, with its luxurious fabric, short sleeves and hip-hitting hem.
Needed more proof at how amazing turtlenecks are? Here’s this nude cashmere and silk sweater.
WIDE LEG PANTS
These vintage trousers may be straight from the 1970s, but they feel completely current. Tapping into this season’s love affair with the wide leg, the double knit polyester pant is right on the money with its high waist, easy silhouette and bright color.
Why have just one color when you could have two? We’re being greedy with our hues this season and this perfectly oversized pocket pullover, which combines cream and brown, is everything we’ve been lusting over. Like something grandpa would wear, only better.
For more amazing vintage, head this way!
