It’s now well and truly spring season and that means new trends and spring-essential looks are popping up on the fashion scene. You might be a vintage lover for life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make vintage clothing work for some of the season’s hottest trends too.


Here at Pepper Tree Vintage Clothing, we obviously adore vintage. We also love styling our quality pieces in new and on-trend ways to make sure our favoured vintage looks never go out of style.


We decided to take a look at some of the seasons top trends and look at how to style up some of our favourites vintage pieces.




Plaid anything is so huge right now. Whether it’s a full, tailored trouser suit, a throw over jacket or a neat shirt, checks are back and vintage checks are even better. Street style on social media has seen a plethora of plaid jackets and blazers, thrown over a casual outfit with chic, heeled mules.


We are loving this vintage plaid blazer in some of the season’s hottest colours, perfect for layering over wide-leg, cropped jeans and a graphic tee. You could try a vintage plaid dress and layer with a leather jacket and chunky ankle boots for an edgy take on the trend.


Floral Prints


Florals for spring might not seem out-of-the-box, but pairing deeper, more gothic hues of floral prints is this year’s take on the spring time regular. Styling darker flowery designs with more rugged styling, with leather and studded biker boots, you can take a vintage floral dress or shirt and make it ultra-modern with an Erdem-esque twist.




Sportswear Luxe is a trend that seems to transcend seasons of late. This comfortable, yet stylish look has now made its way securely into the high-end sector of the fashion market, with even evening wear and formal outfits catering towards the trend. Anything with a sports logo or coloured stripe fit; which means sporty vintage finds are perfectly on-trend.


From a vintage Ralph Lauren polo to on-trend Adidas cropped sweat pants, there’s enough vintage sportswear at Pepper Tree Vintage to have you rocking this look in time for the new season.


Trench Coats


Trench coats are huge for spring. They work great in the day when you need a lighter jacket and heavier options or layering is perfect for a cool spring evening. We saw so many variations of trench coats on the runway at Fashion Week. From traditional cuts of the heritage coat to distressed and disjointed versions; the trench was the official jacket of the season.


We have a great range of vintage trench coats on offer, perfect to recreate this fashion week look and invest in a jacket that will take you from season to season each year.


Ice Cream Pastels


Ice cream pastel colours are an important trending colour for spring ’18. Adopting a colour trend can be a great way to stay contemporary, yet maintain your own unique style, especially if you love to dress in vintage.
