And, of course, you can mix and match vintage accessories with vintage apparel--and they don't have to be from the same era. 1950's scarves look great nipping in the waists of 1960's shift dresses, and an 80's belt can add flair to a 1940's peplum dress or jacket. For some great ways to use a vintage scarf, check out our friend Couture Allure's blog here.
