I Just Asked Instagram’s Most Stylish What Vintage Pieces They’re Buying

There’s nothing quite like the thrill of discovering a showstopper hidden amongst the general detritus of a vintage store, knowing you’ve discovered something truly unique that won’t be replicated 10 times over the moment it hits the shelves. You can’t get the same thrill from shopping on the high street, and (let’s be honest) nabbing something new won’t give you smug bragging rights amongst your friends.

As anyone who’s a dedicated Who What Wear reader will know, we love a good secondhand hunt, whether it’s in the designer-packed charity shops of Marylebone high street or in a cupboard-sized boutique in Paris. We know there are plenty of influencers out there who consider themselves dedicated followers of vintage fashion, but too often their beloved throwback buys can get lost amongst the newness—particularly due to the fact that they can’t be tagged in a post.

That’s where we come in. We wanted to shine a light on all these one-of-a-kind sartorial gems that so often fall under the radar and prove once and for all that shopping “old” pieces can be just as fulfilling than nabbing the new-in. We called on five vintage-loving fashion bloggers to to show us the pieces they love the most. From Bettina’s Burberry check kitten heels to Stephanie’s oversized checked blazer, scroll down to see which secondhand pieces they treasure, plus shop similar pieces.
