Donning vintage clothing, like rewinding home videos or hurling crystal balls through a mirror, gives modern humans a glimpse into the past. Flashback fashionably with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of vintage and contemporary apparel and accessories at Penny Lane Trading Company.
Penny Lane Trading Company, the newly rooted offshoot of a popular online outfitter, jazzes up couture connoisseurs with a sartorial fusion of vintage and contemporary designer duds. Countless decades of period pieces—stretching from demure ‘50s suits to distressed ‘80s leather jackets—lend modern fashion plates timeless aplomb, and newer strains of high-end apparel, such as stellar pieces from Ralph Lauren, BCBG, and Vera Wang, dazzle dressers more ably than a caffeinated disco ball. Bountiful racks yield wearable gems such as printed silk cocktail frocks ($9.99+), striped boho sweaters ($8.99), and chic, ‘60s-era pocketbook-and-pumps pairings ($24.99+). Foliate masculine trunks and canopies with a hodgepodge of Wrangler pearl snap shirts ($9.99+) and dapper hats ($8+), or defuse an aggressively crimson Nebraska Huskers pullover ($24.99) with the casual charm and coin-pinching practicality of men’s woven penny loafers ($61).
