Top Tips for Vintage Clothes Shopping
Vintage clothes are known for their elegance, glamour and unique style. The reason why most people prefer vintage clothing is probably that they've realized shopping at high street stores usually results in everyone wearing the same "too commercial" outfits or adopting similar styles. On the other hand, shopping at local vintage stores almost guarantees that nobody is going to rock up to a party in the same outfit as you.
Vintage clothes need a good wash before you wear them, but since they are such delicate garments it can be worth it to visit a speciality dry cleaner. In addition, you will find that the sizing is very different to today's method, therefore you may need to alter your outfit slightly. If you are confident with a needle and thread then that's fine, but if you're a less experienced seamstress it will probably be worth passing it over to a professional.
Final tip - not all vintage shops have dressing rooms so it is very useful to know your measurements off by heart. Alternatively, bring a tape measure along with you or save your measurements on your phone.
