Style It: A Fresh Take

We always get questions on how to wear vintage pieces without looking too dated. The answer, our dear collectors, is to buy pieces that you can seamlessly incorporate into your own modern-day wardrobe. This is also what we, at THE FIFTH COLLECTION, look out for when curating our vintage selection.

This week, the Curator puts together some looks for various occasions that inject some whimsical vintage pieces into a modern look.

Party Look

"Wearing stark and dramatic modern pieces especially in black can look more feminine when done with a romantic brooch, and bag from a different era. This allows your look to tell a story."

Brunch Look

"Who said square-toed 90's-styled shoes are unwearable? It's fun to dig out some of these items which you would consider a faux pas now and see how you can incorporate them into your current wardrobe. You never know what you might end up with!"

Day/Work Look

"When wearing vintage, we like to stick with a 2:2 ratio as it keeps things balanced. So when wearing modern clothing, pair with vintage accessories and vice versa."
