Here are some ideas that I have picked up over the last few years.

I love Edwardian tops, but I often find that they are impossibly small. I just want to throw this out there since it is sweater weather: Often, Edwardian blouses button from the back, so if a top is too small, only button the essential buttons and wear a cardigan.

You can also find vintage/modern blouses that look antique. They usually come in normal human sizes. I prefer this because I treasure antiques and only want to wear them for special occasions.

Most of you probably know this, but the sun takes out a multitude of stains! I can often get great deals if I am not afraid of a little mending. Don’t forget, if a piece is badly stained, you can always dye it!

Vintage nightgowns totally look like blouses if you tuck them in. It is totally not Edwardian, but it is fluffy and it is tucked in, so lets just go with it.

The cardigan is hiding a lot in this photo. Cardigans are such a gift.

Sometimes you can score Edwardian looks at Target. This is a mix of Target, Marshalls and LulaRoe. This is probably the best if you are looking for larger sizes.

So that is it. I don’t really have any killer secrets, just a few pointers at how you can mix some Edwardian/vintage into your wardrobe.
