Thanks for the thoughtful question.
Yes it is possible to incorporate vintage pieces. I have a few myself and they don’t look out of place against everything else. The key is just to be patient and not mix too many flashy pieces together. I think dressing ‘vintage’ for the sake of it is a played out look but dope older thrift pieces can be such great value in certain cases. Try to plan out looks and work your purchasing around that so you don’t end up wasting closet space on stuff that doesn’t fit great.
