Mixing styles can be tricky, but sometimes it is as easy as 1-2-3!
With the new arrival of vintage at ElectricFrenchie.com, we’ve had fun pairing our contemporary lines with timeless pieces from our new Vintage Time Capsule Collection.
Our new Vintage Time Capsule Collection features premiere vintage collectors from Austin, Texas. For the next 60 days, Austin’s own up and coming vintage store Charm School Vintage and fashion-forward celebrity Erika Pinktipp’s grace us with their finest pieces.
Take a look at the easy outfits we’ve put together with classic vintage pieces from Charm School Vintage and Vintage by Erika Pinktipps.
One of the easiest ways to add a vintage touch is to add on a fringe vest. Transform your lightweight white sundress with a vest or top it over a bold patterned dress. Either way, you will create an authentic Woodstock Look effortlessly. Reuse the vest with a modern day bandeau, cut-off shorts, and lace-up boots for an edgier look.

A vintage top can be simply incorporated into your wardrobe. Tops from another era have a touch of detail or tailoring that is hard to find today. These gems can be paired with the vintage inspired high-waisted bottoms that are trending today. A vintage top can look great with wide-legged pants, high-waisted shorts, or flowy maxi skirts. Keep these tops handy in your closet to add a special touch to any outfit.

A lot of unique lace and crochet textures are a common staple at vintage stores. Since lace and crochet yield a see-through factor, this classic material can open up a lot of ways to add layers in an outfit. From lace robes to open shirts, find ways to add a special touch to any outfit. Take this idea further by contrasting vintage lace with modern day lace design.
Hallie’s outfit consists of Electric Frenchie’s A Little Glitz Sleeveless Blouse by Audrey 3 + 1, Ivory Crochet Lace Skirt by Many Belles Down, and Vintage by Erika Pinktipps’ Lace Mint Blouse. Accessories include Canvas Black Chevron Wedges and Ray Ban’s Wayfarer.
Don’t be afraid to be bold in vintage clothes. Try to find big and bold prints that will stand out among contemporary clothes. These one of a kind pieces can always be accented with today’s basics such as sheer shirts or basic belts.
