How to spot your next vintage statement piece!

Vintage fabrics are a great way to add some unique flair to your wardrobe. But identifying them can be a challenge. Im Ashley, I've been thrifting my entire life and own a successful vintage store for the past 14 years and vintage street festival in Chicago.

So! let's get into it.
Here are some tips to help you identify vintage fabrics and style them. First, look for tags. Most vintage fabrics have tags that indicate the brand, fabric type, and care instructions. Pay attention to the font, size, and placement of the tag. This can give you clues about the era the fabric is from.
Next, consider the style of the fabric. Different fashion eras have distinct styles that can help you identify vintage fabrics. For example, the 1920s were all about art deco patterns and geometric shapes, while the 1950s were known for their bright colors and bold prints.
When thrifting at local shops, keep an eye out for unique pieces. Vintage fabrics can often be found in the form of dresses, blouses, and skirts. Don't be afraid to try on different styles and experiment with mixing vintage pieces with modern ones.
When styling vintage fabrics, it's important to keep the rest of your outfit simple. Let the fabric be the focus of your look. Pair a vintage blouse with high-waisted jeans or a vintage skirt with a solid-colored top.
By following these tips, you can identify vintage fabrics and incorporate them into your wardrobe in a stylish way. Happy thrifting!
