Out with the New, In with the Old

“Out with the new, in with the old.”  No, I did not say this statement backwards.  Vintage has always been a factor in creating current trends, as fashion history always lends itself to current trends.  The growing trend in fashion is now vintage itself.  Instead of trying to take one small detail from fashion history to pull into a current trend, designers and stylists are using entire vintage pieces or replicas as a means of self-expression.  This generation has been dedicated to re-purposing items, “thrifting”,  and borrowing from mom and dad’s closet. Just take a look at some of the great images Neroli has posted on their Pinterest page.  Old is definitely in.
