Vintage Meets Modern: Boho Style

This year, we have focused our flea market style and much of the shop on 70s bohemian styles, which we both love, and which are also hugely on-trend right now at modern stores. Spring and summer are the perfect times to bust out maxi dresses, floppy hats, high-waisted jeans, and crochet everything.  It’s also music festival season, and boho styles lend themselves well to outdoor fests because they are both cool and comfortable: what more could you want in an outfit?

Sometimes it's hard to find a good-fitting vintage piece, especially for curvier ladies! One way to get around this is to buy a vintage-style modern piece, like a maxi dress, and then pair it with vintage accessories:

The style of this printed maxi dress from rue21 is a steal! It’s flattering on every figure and super breezy for summer. We'd pair it with an orange suede vest (worn open), tooled leather belt, knee high lace up boots with a wooden heel and a funky fringed patchwork bag--all vintage!

70s styles are all the rage right now and it's easy for anyone to pull off these retro looks by mixing modern and vintage pieces.

Other easy trends for summer (and festival season!):
-palazzo pants, paired with a cropped tank, long vest, and lots of jewelry.
-jumpsuits, belted with a pair of strappy leather sandals and tons of bracelets and rings.
-floppy hats as a topper for just about any bohemian outfit (and they double as sunscreen!)

Take your modern styles and mix them up with vintage! Your wardrobe will thank you for it.
