Without fail, every Thursday on The Working Wardrobe’s Instagram account we feature a vintage office fashion look. We’re big believers in the “throw back thursday” hashtag, especially when it comes to fashion, and for good reason. Look at any major fashion trend today and chances are its being repeated or reinvented in some way. From pencil skirts, shoulder pads, kitten heels and even the strong brow you’ve undoubtedly been sporting lately, each can be sourced back to a prior era.
The vintage pieces you find hold a special place in your heart, more so than any new item ever could. They’re nostalgic, unique, supportive of environmental causes, and like mentioned before, fashion forward, despite their old age.
However, realistically, despite the charm of vintage clothing, it’s not everyday that you get the chance to peruse a vintage shop and pick out pieces that you love. As fun as discovering hidden gems while sifting through endless racks of clothes can be, it’s also extremely time consuming and exhausting, which is why Elizabeth Wren Vintage is so great.
