If you’ve decided to give up fast fashion for 2021, vintage fashion will be your new best friend.

There are plenty of trends you can buy vintage, and after the third lockdown was announced in the UK this week, those little trips to Primark are off the cards anyway.

Whether you’re looking for sweater vests, faux fur coats, or cowboy boots, the options are endless when you’re shopping vintage.
