Check out our selection of true vintage coats that are on sale now and see what your favorite one says about your personality in our article below:
Just wearing a true vintage clothes item, or an entire outfit, says a lot about you as a person. For one thing, it says that you have a unique and classic style. But it also says that you are consciously recycling to do your part for the environment. Which is pretty great if you ask us, but does our favorite vintage coat say more about our personalities? We think so…
The Fur Coat
Elegant lavishness. A woman wearing a fur coat is graceful, demure and polished. Even when worn with a simple T-shirt and jeans, the look is cultured and luxurious.
Mellow rebel. There is hardly a more relaxed and cool vibe than you get from someone wearing leather or suede. It also carries a tinge of carefree rebellion (Think “Rebel Without A Cause”). Women who wear leather and suede are low-key and easy-going with a strong and independent side.
The Wool Coat
Sensibly smart. While also having a sophisticated classiness to them, a wool coat is for the practical and they reflect a down-to-earth, intelligent woman.
The Trench Coat
Inquisitive class. Trench coats are enduring, ageless and permanent. No matter what era they are from, or how big the collar is, they never seem dated. A woman who wears this classic coat is understated, chic and has an investigative and curious personality.
So, what do you think? Does your favorite vintage coat match your personality? Of course, there are many different types of coats and an unlimited number of different personality combinations. These are just a few fun ideas. (If you’d like to know more about what your clothes say about you, read this intriguing book, You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You.)

Well, it’s officially been fall for over a month already and this week it actually feels like it. There’s finally crisp morning air, changing leaves and golden sunsets. And I’m loving it. It’s time to layer up and head outside with a blanket scarf and a statement trench coat. This season’s fashion trends have incorporated several vintage elements that can make any outfit stand out as unique and stylish. The Fall trend we are loving the most right now:
1970s Vintage Plaid
According to the streets of New York City and our favorite online fashion experts at Elle, Harpers Bazaar, and Cosmopolitan, vintage plaid is a huge fashion trend this season. Not lumberjack flannel plaid, or 90’s grunge plaid, but the plaid of the 70’s. Plaid is showing up everywhere in blazers, coats, pants and evening gowns in muted neutrals to bright and colorful plaids. Here are a couple examples of some true 1970s vintage to inspire you:
Vintage 70’s Marimekko Purple And Brown Plaid Maxi Gown
Marimekko designs started to gain popularity in the 1960s and by the 1970s they had made fashion history. This bold 70’s vintage brown, purple and white plaid dress captures their unique style. Have an event that you need a one-of-a-kind gown for? Try plaid!

This 70’s vintage Malcolm Starr plaid black and silver dress definitely makes a statement and is sure to make anyone’s waist look tiny. I love this 6″ wide black waistband!
Vintage 70’s Marimekko Plaid Jumpsuit
This Marimekko Suomi Finland Pant Suit in brown, rust and tan plaid is anything but boring. Vuokko Nurmesniemi was a principal designer for Marimekko, and is known for bold color and shape combinations creating whimsical looks. How fun (and incredibly comfortable) would this be to work into your wardrobe?
Vintage Sybil Connolly Black And White Plaid Coat And Skirt
I just wanted to share this delicious vintage 1920s dress with my readers before it gets sold. Its a net over dress from the 1920s, The Great Gatsby Era, with the most electric blue sequins I have ever seen.
Funny, it was balled up in a pillowcase I recently purchased from a Pennsylvania Estate. Let us know what you think! We are pretty sure it is already sold, but if not it will be available at The Best Vintage Clothing soon..
My photographer and I were having a little fun with some poses found in a vintage fashion photography book, and Louise decided to get in on the action! I like this one so much, It is going to be my new blog photo. Just wanted to share a little bit of me and my muse with you!
I might be sharing some other ones as they are available. So stay tuned!
