The beauty of vintage or retro fashion is in its uniqueness and a certain special appeal rooted in their history. Someone has said that vintage clothes are more than just fashion: they let you wear a memory.
And don’t think that vintage or retro style is for women only! Just consider these great outfits for men:
However, if you are new to this particular area of fashionable wear, better start small. That is, with vintage accessories. Handbags, sunglasses, ties, wallets, shoes, cufflinks, belts, scarves, gloves…the list is practically inexhaustible. Vintage accessories are the easiest way to incorporate the whiff of bygone eras into your look without feeling too self-conscious about it.
Here is just a small part of vintage and retro style fashion accessories for men and women currently available on bidorbuy:
There are fashionistas who enjoy wearing vintage from head to toe. They avoid looking like they just stepped out of a specific era by mixing fashions of different periods, as well as wearing contemporary hairdos and makeup.
Still, most fashion gurus (including yours truly) consider that it is better to mix-and-match vintage pieces with modern ones. For example, a delicate old lace top will look great with modern, artfully torn jeans.
Ladies, here are some “true” vintage second-hand items found on bidorbuy you may want to incorporate into your wardrobe:
The biggest advantage of used vintage clothing is their price. As a rule, they are very affordable. They are often also of superior quality: once upon a time, clothes were made to last.

Although they cannot compete with the real thing when it comes to uniqueness or story-to-tell appeal, new garments made in vintage style are a great alternative to true vintage because you can choose the size that is guaranteed to fit you.
