Vintage outfits or looks are used to describe clothing oufits that are between 20 and 100 years old, sometimes even more. They usually represent the era in which they were produced, and reflect the styles and trends of that particular era.
Vintage outfits, ranging from tops to dresses and even skirts, can be worn by anyone as a fashion statement in the times we’re in, as long as that person knows how to rock them well. This includes matching the outfits with the right accessories and other pieces to complement the look.
We asked a few people what they think about vintage looks and outfits, here’s what they had to say;
Mosope Ani, a fashionista who loves trying out different trends and outfits had this to say,
“For me, I absolutely love vintage outfits, because they are timeless and I also like finding things I generally wouldn’t find anywhere. Even though the current trends determine if I’ll wear them or not, I stand with vintage outfits anyday.”
Fiyinfoluwa Akinsiku, a programmer and aspiring developer shared this with us,
“I think vintage looks are cool actually, easily one of my favourites. The aesthetics, colour, vibe and style of the outfits are what draws me to them mostly.”
Oluwafeyifunmi Somolu, a medical student and part-time writer shared his thoughts,
“Vintage outfits are great for leaisure outings. Even though they look simple, the outfits still pass the message that you’ve got style and swag.”
Isabel Irabor, a painter and fashion-inclined student had this to say,
“I LOVE VINTAGE LOOKS! The textures are really great, the darker colours and hues bring a certain vibe to the looks, and its really amazing because that’s my style. Vintage outfits are really just interesting.”
Camille, a recent graduate shared this with us,
“I like some of the vintage outfits, like the mom-jeans, shirts, retro afro, and the gowns too. Some of the looks I don’t quite fancy are the baggy shirts and jeans, but I understand that the looks are meant to be alternative. But generally, vintage looks are cool.”
