Here at AO Estate Sales, we see a lot of vintage clothing. It’s one of the more fun parts about the job. We had an estate sale last fall where the estate owner had saved what seemed like all of her clothing for her entire adult life. Remember there were over four decades worth, she even had some of her childhood clothing as well.
This outfit was from that amazing estate sale in Pflugerville. Remember the tents filled with clothing?
In the photo below, both pieces are vintage, but you can see how it would be easy to follow one of the first rules of wearing vintage clothing, which is, to pair vintage with current styles.
I can see this top with a pair of jeans or casual slacks. And the skirt would go nicely with a loose blouse or even a cute tank top.
Well, our upcoming estate sale NEXT WEEKEND, right here in Austin has a TON of vintage clothing. And many of these pieces are quite amazing! Our clients, The estate owners are a fun loving couple with eclectic tastes.
To be sure, our client LOVES black. She has many classic black items, but not to worry, there IS some color mixed in there. We have over 200 pieces of vintage items at this upcoming estate sale. You will for sure find something. We ain’t cryin’ wolf!
Rules of Wearing Vintage Clothing
- Pair vintage items with current styles. No need to wear vintage head to toe. Pair a vintage top with some jeans. Or a vintage skirt with a classic style.
- Start small. When you first start wearing vintage, choose an accessory first. Dip your toe in the vintage waters.
- Stay true to your style. But don’t be afraid to try something new. You never know what you might like.
- Know that sizing has changed over the generations. Try on everything if it looks like it fits and don’t worry about what the tag says.
Wearing Vintage Clothing Is Fun!

This is going to be a really fun VINTAGE estate sale, folks. Our clients are an dare I say, a bit of a wild and wacky pair.
