One of my main problems with ‘vintage’ clothes, or even the repro pieces you can buy, is that they’re often a little OTT for daywear (not to mention expensive). I don’t feel comfortable going to the supermarket in a full floral 50’s skirt or velvet wiggle dress. Along with the fact that if you see a lovely vintage piece on a blog like this, well, that’s too bad, there’s not another one out there the same.
And the good news is that there are plenty of reasonably-priced jeans out there that imitate this look. Personally, I prefer a high-street style that isn’t a straight repro because that way there’s just enough ‘modern’ to not feel like I’m in fancy-dress. Here’s some of my favourites!
