1. Vintage meaning: what does Vintage mean?

Do you know what Vintage means? The meaning of Vintage is very curious, as it comes from English and means harvest or vintage. This term is used to designate wines of very good quality, so within the wine sector it created a lot of controversy when it began to be used for other areas.

Nowadays, the word Vintage is an adjective used to designate things from the past. Normally the vintage style is used for pieces of about 20 years old very characteristic of the era to which they belong.

To be even more expert in this word, the term Vintage is not pronounced as "vintach", but is pronounced "Vintij".

Vintage Fashion

Within the vintage style, the aspect that stands out the most is: vintage fashion.

Vintage fashion has been one of the trends most seen by many celebrities. And is that, with the rise of sustainability, many people have turned to buying second hand clothes, where they can find quality clothes and very famous brands with a long durability, due to the good qualities of clothing and accessories in the past.

Many celebrities opt for vintage clothing for iconic moments such as red carpets.

For example, Kim Kardashian in the Marilyn Monroe dress this Met Gala in 2022.
