Vintage: just a trend or here to stay?

Vintage fashion has been on a constant rise for the past few years, with thousands of savvy shoppers eager to rediscover the classic styles of days gone by. If you’ve dropped into our store in Delray Beach, Florida, you may have picked up a vintage treasure or two from us yourself; but what is it about vintage that appeals to us so much, and is the vintage trend here to stay?

Rare is always popular

One of the most exciting things about vintage clothes shopping is knowing that very few people will own the same item. Modern clothing is produced in bulk, and it’s easy to spot others wearing the same garment as you. Vintage items are rare and it’s fantastic knowing you’re wearing something that very few others will have seen before.

You never know what you’ll find

Many people who visit Second Time Around love consignment clothing because they never know what they’re going to find, and it’s the same with vintage shopping! It doesn’t matter what cuts, colors and materials are fashionable right now, vintage clothing won’t follow the same rules and you can find some really exciting, unique items.

Some of the old styles are the best

Fashion is constantly transforming from season to season and that’s not a bad thing, it’s just that, occasionally, it’s nice to revisit the old, classic styles. Sometimes we want to twirl around in the full, billowing skirts of a 1950s tea dress or slip into a cute, sleek shift dress of the ’70s. Vintage keeps these classic styles alive, no matter what the current trends are.

Is vintage here to stay?

Vintage is showing no signs of becoming any less popular – we think it’s here to stay! It’s not just a trend, it’s an appreciation for styles and fashions from decades ago and for that reason we’ll always have a vintage section in our store. Next time you’re in town drop by and take a look; you never know what vintage treasures you might find!
