Have you met the vintage girls of NYC yet?

Beautiful sweeping dresses and mass of hats, these ladies are not in costume. They simply love dressing up like this!

Vintage style is so cool. You just need to get it right. Vintage style is so cool. You just need to get it right.

Vintage fashion is evergreen but can be equally difficult to live by. Celebs constantly revisit the bygone era to derive inspiration and include it in their style books – take the example of Dita von Teese, the queen of vintage fashion. But not many experiment with it on a regular basis. They would rather prefer gushing and admiring others in it. The simple reason being, many think of it as something grand and unattainable. But the truth is, there are no prerequisites to follow vintage fashion. All you need is an interest in old, beautiful things!

Anything vintage might sound far-fetched but not to these ladies from New York City. Believe it or not, they dress like this often and look pretty in it too. Take a look.

Fenston has been wearing vintage clothing since she was a teenager in San Francisco in the early ’70s. She derives her inspiration from the ’20s through the ’40s and the effect is stunning. This fashion archivist has been part of  the ever-growing scene of vintage collectors.

Michelle Coursey
Coursey is a make-up artist whose interest in vintage blossomed when she met her husband at New York’s Jazz Age Lawn Party in 2010. For the lady, vintage clothing is the most comfortable and the most beautiful but they come out only on rare occasions. In her words, “The experience of going to see an old movie dressed in the same sorts of clothes you see onscreen is a satisfying one”.

Gualdron, a photographer started wearing vintage about three years ago. It wasn’t on purpose but a sweeping glance across her wardrobe made her realise that most of the pieces that she collected as a standalone turned out to be vintage. She even wore them to work when she was an audio engineer and still wears them onstage while playing bass for her band, Electro Insides.
