Back To The Future: Vintage Style Is Making A Comeback
If you spend a lot of your time paying attention to fashion or design trends, then you’ll notice things tend to move in a cycle. One thing becomes popular for a while, then disappears completely before making a comeback many years later.
These days, we see a massive example of this in the form of vintage style. Back in the 70’s and 80’s certain clothes were popular and people liked to buy particular things for their homes. As time went on, these styles went out of fashion, and new trends came in.
Now, all of these old styles are back with a vengeance. Vintage is the new, well, new! If you’re wearing vintage clothing or have a vintage interior design, then you’re considered to be someone that keeps up with trends and knows great style when you see it.
In this article, I’m going to give you a few tips that will help you keep up with the times and showcase this vintage style for all to see. Check out my ideas down below:

Vintage Interior Design
Vintage interior design is achieved when you decorate your home in a way that wouldn’t look out of place twenty or thirty years ago. This means getting a lot of vintage or antique looking furniture instead of some of the more modern stuff.
Vintage sofas have become so popular that companies are actually making brand new sofas that look old. So, it’s not hard to get your hands on one of these to take your living room back to the 70’s/80’s. Places like your kitchen and bathroom are also really easy to turn into vintage interior design havens. All you need to do is shy away from the contemporary things like tiling and get more rustic and vintage looking kitchen counters, etc.
Bathrooms are potentially even easier, it all lies in the things you have in the room. Get a real antique bathtub and an old-looking vanity cabinet too. It’s amazing how easy finding an antique vanity is these days, and they don’t look too old and outdated either, they have a unique vintage look that isn’t ugly. That’s really all there is to vintage interior design, it’s all about finding old things and making them work again.
The vintage fashion trend has really taken off in the last few years, and there are now so many examples of vintage clothing in popular shops. You have classic vintage sunglasses on shelves up and down the country, and vintage ‘mom’ jeans are making a comeback too.
If you really wanted to become a vintage fashion icon, then your best bet is checking out second-hand stores or thrift shops for truly vintage clothing. It’s also a good idea to go through some old magazines or do a few image searches for fashion back in the 70’s/80’s, this will give you a great idea of what to wear and buy.
In truth, vintage style is one of the easiest styles to replicate as you’re just wearing things that used to look good a few decades ago. If you want to remain stylish and keep up with trends, then you should get on this bandwagon before it rolls out.
