Three ways to style a vintage jacket
This week from The Modern Curator: Vintage jacket – three ways
I picked up this vintage fur jacket from my favourite consignment store Designer Exchange, in Toronto. It was love at first sight (and touch!) and the price matched my modest budget, which was an even bigger bonus. Though fur and faux fur jackets are generally associated with a glam look, I wanted to show you that this type of jacket can actually be very versatile… not to mention warm for the cooler months! If you’re on the hunt for a similar type of jacket, scour vintage, consignment and charity shops where you can pick one up for steal. And, don’t forget to check grandma’s closet for any hidden gems, all it takes is some minor alterations to create a modern look with a cool vintage flair.
I’ve created three different looks below, what’s your favourite?
