#3: Go for a minimalistic look

In the 1940s and '50s, women used to go for bold lips, eye-popping shadow, and swirly hairstyle, but you don't have to exactly follow the complete look from the past. Instead, you could go for minimal makeup and a low-maintenance hairdo with your vintage clothes and all eyes will be definitely on you. The aim is to randomly add vintage ensembles into your everyday fashion rather than fully going for a hip-hop look. Mix and match with modern styles.

#4: Select Modern Pieces of Vintage Clothing

Select the vintage pieces that have made a comeback instead of blindly choosing a piece straight out from the past. To check the latest fresh trends, go through fashion magazines and blogs that can help you in making the right decision in picking out modern vintage clothes. Peplum style shirts and long floral skirts from the 1940s and 1950s have a made a revival. So, why not pair it with your favorite jewelry and walk with style?

You may be hesitant at first but the rule of thumb is to always give it a try. You never know you might slay the look!
