July resolution: Look for vintage style inspiration

Have you been keeping up with your New Year’s resolutions? I actually have taken a healthy swipe at all of mine...of course it doesn’t hurt to have resolutions related to vintage clothing and style!

For July, I’ve been looking for style inspiration, especially from modern women weaving vintage style into their day-to-day lives.

I love to see men and women in head-to-toe vintage, as if stepping out of the past. If done really well and with confidence, just seeing such sartorial splendor is transporting. For myself I prefer to mix vintage eras and vintage and modern style. My wardrobe will always be mostly vintage, but I like to put it in a modern context. To that end, I am collecting images on my Pinterest board Modern Vintage Style Inspiration. These are a few:

Some of these images do not feature any vintage clothing, but I can imagine vintage taking the place of the modern items that are shown. The point is not the item but the vibe and how to achieve it. In each case these women have a vintage vibe while looking modern.

Is this your style too? Or do you prefer the head-to-toe vintage look? I’d love to see and follow your style inspiration board on Pinterest if you have one.
