By: Mhlengi Mafu
Vintage is more than just a collection of old clothes that used to be worn back in the days, but it’s a lifestyle.
It could be your grandfather’s shirt or your grandmother’s dress, but nowadays it’s fashion and vintage quality can never be compared to today’s modern clothes. Vintage is the famous word on the street; it’s the most trending term in the fashion industry. Think of any clothes in your grandparents’ wardrobe and imagine how you would look like wearing those clothes.
Vintage is not anything new but somehow and in some way the youth has connected with the way their parents or grandparents use to look back in the days.
This is a very unique style and the youth seem to love it one of the reasons for it is that what you find in your grandparents’ wardrobe can be a style without the cost of any price.
There are boutiques that collect such clothes and sell them at a good price.
