How to Make Vintage Look Modern

Lately, I’ve really been into anything and everything Vintage. So, when I came across this mohair sweater by A Devon Original at Savers for only $2.88, I picked it up QUICK!

I knew, exactly what necklace I was going to pair with it, this vintage one that I scored for just $1.00 at an estate sale.

If any of you know anything about what this is made of, or how old it is, I would love to know!

Here’s a closer look.

The baubles kind of remind me of old glass Christmas ornaments.

Now, how to make this look more modern took some thought.

My first thought was just to pair it with a basic white tee, but THEN, I looked around my overflowing closet and spotted my No Boundaries neon tank from Walmart ($5.96) and noticed that it was THE EXACT shade that was in one of the beads of the necklace!

So, I paired it with that, some distressed denim and my go-to Adidas and came up with this look.

It turned out OH-kay, but believe it or not, I received compliments from three different people when I wore it, and they ALL complimented me on the color combination!

It just goes to show what I usually try to do…

take your inspiration from the colors of your accessories.

Do you do that when styling your outfits?
