Nca – Loved it: Cool like my gogo

With the growth of the retro revival, we’re all looking back at the classics of the 20s, 50s and 80s for timeless inspiration. Vintageis always in.

For blogger and stylist Siki Msuseni, finding an old-school gem in her grandmother’s cupboard was a style win.

The 21-year-old Capetonian has found an interesting way to beat the heat this summer with a vintage dress from her gogo’s collection.

Having rescued the garment from what she calls her gogo’s “Third World checkered bag”, this plaid pastel-coloured dress is a wonderful style to keep.

Pairing the vintage dress with modern combinations, including a bright-pink neckpiece and a pair of purple and pink Nike Air Max sneakers, transforms the look from almost dreary to classically chic.

One of the perks of wearing vintage clothing is that often the items are unique, but for most people, the budget-friendly element of vintage-buying is the most appealing aspect. When venturing into vintage wear, don’t forget to be experimental, and don’t be afraid to mix the classics with modern elements.
