bag_retro_narrowweb__300x421,0Now that we’re halfway through January and most of your resolutions have well and truly fallen by the wayside, it’s time to focus on the one thing that actually matters in 2010…your wardrobe. If you’re a vintage virgin then this is the perfect time to start afresh and try new things, and even if you’re well acquainted with all things vintage there’s always room for improvement! Laura Terry has this story.

The key to keeping resolutions is to make ones that are both practical and achievable, so whereas you won’t suddenly just drop a stone by thinking thin, you can de-clutter your wardrobe, help the environment and bag a load of bargains simply by following our helpful hints.

Resolution 1- Step Away From The Sale Rail
Every January we all go a little sale crazy and buy things we don’t really need, which not only clogs up your wardrobe but also does a little more damage to that already maxed-out credit card. If you really feel the urge to splurge however, then try to head away from the highstreet and check out your local vintage haunts for a one off piece that’s sure to last you all season and won’t break the bank.

Resolution 2- Raid Your Relatives’ Cast-Offs
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, the best bargains are to be had right under your nose and usually lying in the back of your mum’s wardrobe. Each season the biggest trends are updated from the past and then recreated for the highstreet for everyone to wear, which is great and everything, but we then all end up looking the same.

Why not opt for something truly original this year and go for something from the actual era to make a true fashion statement and stand out from the crowd in 2010.
