Accessories can assist to merge the vintage with the contemporary in a subtle way and are always a nice complement to any ensemble. If you don’t want to go full out with the classic look, consider adding a tiny vintage touch with a vintage bag or purse, sunglasses, or even a scarf. If, on the other hand, your outfit is from a designer vintage store, and instead you want to modernise it, try introducing some newer accessories.

To update a classic vintage outfit, add flashes of vivid colour with black accessories (or vice versa). Vintage elements, such as fur coats and mismatched coloured outfits from different eras can be juxtaposed with current designer accessories.
