Y’all know I love a good vintage dress. To be honest, I love a good vintage anything (as long as it’s clothing). This lil 90s dress is one of my favorite things that I own, there’s no doubt! I’ve had it since this spring and have been trying to get some good photos but every time I shoot it then go to edit, I’m not as pleased with the look as I was.
I think my issue before was that I was trying way too hard to style this little 90s number in a very literal 90s way. Think, oversized denim and scrunchies. It was too much! For me, part of wearing vintage clothes well is working them into your closet in a modern way. So, while this dress is a super throwback, I paired it with a mini backpack, a cropped trench/bomber hybrid, and some docs for a day spent wandering around Shoreditch. While the docs do feel just as 90s as the dress, I don’t think they put the look over the edge. Read through for outfit credits!
How about you? Do you go full vintage or mix it in with more modern things?
