One of the secrets to a great sense of style is how to accessorize an outfit, especially with vintage items. When it comes to accessories, seniors enjoy the advantage of time, given that it often takes years to amass collections of vintage and antique accoutrements, making them the envy of every fashionista. Recycling these jewels from the past is not only fashionable, but a great and economical way to personalize any outfit.
Vintage is always in, so let these ladies and gentleman inspire you to go through your drawers and dig out your old treasures. The most important thing is to have fun and wear your clothes with confidence. Remember, a touch of red lipstick, an old Stetson or an antique pin can take you one step closer to ageless style.
