Edwardian Dapper

(The blur on my blazer is actually a dragonfly mid-flight. I thought it looked cool)

While I enjoy incorporating vintage/historical elements in my outfits, I tend to combine them with more modern pieces, for practical reasons – it’s just difficult finding vintage pieces around here. However, since rediscovering secondhand shopping, I’ve been navigating toward more purely vintage/historical looks. Take this outfit, for example. Before, I would probably wear this shirt with jeans or a leather jacket to “modernize” it a bit, but now I just thought, What the heck. Let’s dress like a Teddy Boy/Girl, because I want to. (That said, the Teddy Boys and Girls actually took their inspiration from the Edwardian era, so their style is already a modernized version.)

  1. I really like this look. Your cameo sets just the right mood. Honestly, I think good vintage is hard to find at a thrift shop, no matter where it is. Generally, you have to go to a shop that specializes in vintage, and then it’s far from being thrifty 🙂
    I have a few pieces and also mix them with modern pieces.

      It depends on how you (and the stores) define “vintage”. For me it’s anything from the 80s and back, because that’s the best I can get, but I’ve seen things from the 90s and 2000s (!!!) sold as “vintage” around here so who knows.
