Check out our vintage summer picks in this roundup featuring five unique pieces that are perfect for warm weather wearing.

This summer, you won’t have to buy a stitch of new clothing if you keep your eyes peeled for awesome vintage finds. Aside from online retailers, like etsy, we also recommend checking thrift stores, specialty shops, consignments stores, and yard sales. We’ve done some of the legwork for you in this post by hand-selecting five throwback pieces representing some of our favorite eras. These high-quality vintage clothes are the ones you’ll want to wear again and again, not only because they’re beautiful, but because of the awesome stories they tell.

1. Sleeveless Daisy Tank

5 Vintage Summer Looks: Friday Finds

This sweet yellow tank is so pretty and unique. The semi-sheer chiffon screams summer and the ruffle bottom detail and rows of white daisies really give this top that wow factor. Layer over a fitted tank or wear with a bralette. Pair with high-waisted jean shorts and lace-up sandals, with a pair of bell bottom jeans, or with a pair of white trousers and heels. This little top can be incorporated into your summer wardrobe all season long! Priced at $25.

2. Velvet Baby Pink Skirt

Break out the tall socks and platforms, because this vintage ’90s deadstock skater skirt will have you channeling your inner Cher. Pair it with a fitted top (you can even pick a pretty floral print) and a cute pair of strappy heels, or tone it down a tad for casual outings by choosing a plain tee or crop and a pair of white sneakers. What makes this even cooler is that it has never been worn. As if! Priced at $18.

3. Vibrant Halter Romper

Another totally current look is this fun, vibrant vintage romper from the 1980s. The halter style is really unique and the colors and print are eye-catching. It’s described as having the potential to show a little booty cheek, so conservative dressers may want to look elsewhere. However, this romper would be perfect for the beach, pairing with a swimsuit, and heading out on casual summer excursions. Try flats, wedges, or a chunky heel and definitely wear your hair back and show off the halter neck. Priced at $34.

4. Striped Maxi Dress

Can you believe this dress is from the 1970s? I know, neither can we! This fitted, black and white maxi dress is completely vintage and features a fish tail hem and crochet details. Just as relevant today as it was back then, you can accessorize this dress like any other. Try jute wedges and bangle bracelets, or a pair of strappy flats and a wide brim hat for a day spent lounging poolside. Priced at $87.

5. Splash Bleached Dungarees

These super cute vintage ’90s overalls are a welcome blast from the not-so-distant past. Whether it’s festival wear you’re seeking, or just a cool outfit to chill in (these are great conversation starters, for sure), then you won’t want to pass up a one-of-a-kind pair of dungarees. Wear them with a crop top, or just a simple t-shirt, and accessorize with all of the usual fun stuff. A cute pair of sneakers, double buns, and a choker should round out this vintage look nicely. Priced at $68.39.
