With the economy still in an undeniable slump, the act of buying vintage or shopping at secondhand stores is an ever-growing trend.
As more shoppers begin to incorporate a variety of retro styles into their wardrobes, designers and retailers are quickly catching on.
Urban Outfitters has most recently launched a collection consisting of one-of-a-kind vintage gems. American Apparel has not slacked in this department either, when it comes to offering authentic vintage versions of the clothes they sell today.
Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Loewe took us back in time on their fall 2010 runways. Both Prada and Louis Vuitton presented conservative printed dresses and smaller satchels, while Loewe showed fur stoles and flashy sequin numbers.
Take a peek at five reviving styles, and achieve your own vintage look for less!
