These Vintage Styles Will Level Up Your Spring Look
Shop the upcycled collection at Urban Outfitters.
The fashion crowd has finally pivoted to spring, which means heavy layers and plunging temperatures are officially a thing of the past. And that fresh outlook sees style-minded folks refreshing their closets with vintage and reimagined vintage — aka clothes that are good for your style and for the planet.
For this, we look to Urban Outfitters’s Urban Renewal line. Since the 1970s, Urban Outfitters has offered a curated selection of vintage pieces — that are both high quality and highly unique — sourced from around the world. The Urban Outfitters team also picks vintage pieces to reimagine (like adding decidedly modern cutouts to recycled Levi’s from yesteryear, or packing on personality with patches, while keeping the original soul of the piece). Shop some of the best pieces below, from statements to staples, to update your spring wardrobe and feel good doing it.
These are not your mom’s chino shorts… although they actually could have been your mom’s chino shorts to begin with. Each pair has the tailored look you love chinos for — but with an added twist of floral fabric at the cuffs. Every item is unique, so your pair will differ from your friend’s (and, obviously, your mom’s).
Another way the Urban Renewal design team embraces sustainability is by sourcing small-batch fabric remnants and using those to create new looks, like these ultra high-waisted cut-off sweatshorts. In other words, both your body *and* your heart can rest comfortably, knowing this fabric didn’t go to waste.
Some looks were just made for spring, and that’s certainly the case with this blazer-and-shorts set. Each set features a vintage blazer that’s been cropped for a more modern look (while keeping its original tailored details), plus a high-waisted short to balance out the silhouette. They’re created with crisp cottons and linens — the clean, breathable fabrics you live for during these blissful months.
