Vintage clothing is reaching new heights of fame this year, with the issue of sustainability taking centre stage in 2019. The shift from buying new to buying secondhand has been especially visible on Instagram, with influencers championing more sustainable practices and wearing more old clothes than new ones. In addition to featuring vintage pieces, influencers are increasingly making a point of re-wearing outfits and reducing the amount of shopping they feature.
Because of the rise in demand for vintage, finding the best pieces has become easier and more accessible. Thanks to websites like Vestiaire Collective and Etsy, as well as Instagram accounts that sell vintage, there's never been a better time to get your hands on something incredible—without the "hunt" aspect that deters so many people from shopping secondhand. Keep scrolling to see and shop the vintage pieces we've spotted on our feeds lately.
Style Notes: A good quality wool or cashmere knit is a great piece to buy secondhand, as they are made with better fabrics (not blended or synthetic) and designed to last.
Style Notes: Everyday pieces in leather (like an easy tote) bought vintage are timeless and durable.
