Chic Reads: Vintage Fashion: Collecting and Wearing Designer Classics

Personal style is all about creating a unique, special look that suits you perfectly, and wearing vintage clothing and accessories is an excellent way to do this - people have been using vintage pieces of various types to stand out from the crowd for years. In fact, the word "vintage" covers such a wide range of styles that it is difficult to figure out where to begin.

Enter Vintage Fashion: Collecting and Wearing Designer Classics, 1900-1990 by Emma Baxter Wright is an excellent primer on the popular styles and designers of each decade, and a must-have for anyone interested in the history of fashion. It's an excellent source of wardrobe inspiration and really, it's worth it for the gorgeous pictures alone!
