• Perfect fit is the key to carrying off your newly acquired vintage piece. An amazing tailor can be the best tool you can have under your fashion belt. Vintage should fit like a glove: always alter it to suit your body shape.
• If having a whole vintage outfit scares some of you, invest in vintage accessories, such as bags, jewellery and scarves. The joy of vintage is that it can be unique, so you never need to worry about seeing the same piece passing you in the street.
