More than a Vintage Store: Mixing Modern with Vintage

Buffalo Exchange Albuquerque Vintage Styles

By Buffalo Exchange Albuquerque

Here at Buffalo Exchange, we take pride in being a vintage store in addition to reselling current trends and staples. In fact, we love mixing vintage with modern. Some people love pieces that hail from decades past but feel like they don’t know how to style them for every day. When you mix and match, vintage can actually add a timeless feel to your wardrobe.  Added bonus: you probably won’t see anyone else wearing the same thing!

Vintage Store Finds: The 40s

Finds from the 1940s are rare, so we were particularly proud to have these elegant pieces on our racks. To style them for 2017, we paired with modern footwear and plenty of fun accessories. Whether you have a movie premier on your calendar or a Friday night date, these looks are guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd.

Vintage Store Finds: The 50s

We love this adorable sky blue 50s number! For this one, we decided to go full-on vintage with a fun hat and made it modern by adding one of the most popular colors of the year – pink.

Pieces from the 1960s are tons of fun, often featuring bows or bright prints. We paired this one with some neutral-colored footwear to make an outfit great for a day at the office.

Vintage Store Finds: The 70s

Though these finds aren’t necessarily from the 70s, they definitely make for some super cute 70s looks. Our customers love finding huipils and other garments with traditional embroidery – they’re a great way to represent the embroidery trend that’s so popular right now in a unique way.

We buy high quality vintage pieces in as often as possible, from rare 20s- and 40s-era frocks to fun 50s party dresses, sweet 70s swag and even 90s throwbacks. Next time you’re at Buffalo Exchange, just ask any employee to point you in the direction of your next vintage item. We can even help you find the perfect pieces to pair it with!
