If Your Style Is Vintage . . .
add some modern to the retro.
The trick is not to be so literal—you don’t want to look as if you just walked off the set of Mad Men. Contrast “old” (estate jewelry, a Peter Pan collar shirt, and Mary Janes) with “new” (a glitzy loose dress, a cross-body bag, and a wraparound belt).
