Some might argue that the term “vintage” as it is used in the fashion world is becoming as overdone as your mom’s hair used to be when she used crimping irons to style her hair. But the reality is, there are a lot of pieces that you would find in your every day fashionista’s closet that are simply before our time and classics.
Of course no discussion about classic things is complete unless you mention Converse’s “Chuck Taylor” iconic sneakers. Although these sneakers came about early in the 1900s, their design has withstood the test of time and generally remained the same with the exception of a splash of colour here; a little print there; a little glitz everywhere.
