 - Expert tips on vintage fashion shopping
Sophie Merchant
Make it special
Sophie Merchant, owner of west London’s wonderful Merchant Archive (a favorite of Kate Moss and Sienna Miller), says:

"Look for show-stopping pieces - a 20s French blue marabou feather cape, a jet-encrusted Victorian cape or a 30s gown."

Always think about what suits you
Steven Phillips from west London style mecca Rellik, says:

"If you
never normally buy something floral/asymmetric/yellow, why would you with vintage items?"

Buy for your shape
Fiona Stewart, also from Rellik, says:
"60s and 70s shapes suit skinny girls, while 50s styles are great if you have curves and want to show off your waist."
