Mid-May is a limbo period for retail; merchandise isn’t fully marked down even though it’s been in the windows for months now. Either you’re waiting for price slashes or you’re sick of everything and anticipating new fall stock. Why not satisfy your need for something new with something old? In our latest Shop-A-Matic, we scoured the stores for affordable and on-trend vintage finds. Buying vintage can be tricky and time-consuming, but we combed through the racks for our favorite warm-weather picks. With hot and sunny summer days looming, we’re looking forward to stocking up on bright printed sundresses and lightweight cotton button-ups. We also found slouchy blazers and lightweight sweaters, ideal for layering in yo-yo weather. Check out our selection here.
Why We Like It: A bold, printed minidress is our new spring staple. Pair with flat sandals for casual brunches or heels for dinner dates.
Superga Men’s Sneakers
Why We Like It: Superga sneakers have been a classic favorite since before sneakerhead culture even existed. These kicks date back to the seventies and are deadstock, meaning they’ve never been worn, just in case you’re germaphobic.
Red Plaid Western Shirt
Why We Like It: Roll up the sleeves, throw a loose white tee under, and pair with casual trousers for an easy outfit to be worn during summer evenings spent dining outdoors.
Why We Like It: Slouchy bucket bags have resurfaced in spring 2010 accessory collections. This gray version has a long strap that can be worn cross-body and is roomy enough to fit all your necessities.
Why We Like It: Wayfarer-style sunglasses flatter nearly all face shapes, and these are cheap, so losing them wouldn’t be that painful.
