I found this wonderful old Cosmo article at the Emma Peelpants blog. If vintage style is your thing, I recommend her tumblr too.
Written in 1974 by Ernestine Carter (her writing is fantastic), it talks about that decade’s appetite for vintage—one very similar to our own: 

The great talent of the young is its flair for putting together. The young can top the eternal jeans with a fragile Victorian lingerie blouse, and look right. They can marry a pretty little dolly dress to boldly striped tights, and look marvellous. 
They have made a declaration of independence against orthodox standards of taste. They wear what looks like evening dress on daytime streets and trousers to evening parties. They put on sequin paillettes for lunch and sweaters for dinner. They may look odd to older eyes, but it is clear they feel fine. 
Fashion isn’t made in a void; it inevitably reflects the times. Ours is a time of confusion, and fashion is therefore equally confused. Confusion breeds anarchy in fashion as in life. Only absolute integrity and true originality can soar above chaos. In other words, if you can afford it, be dressed by Jean Muir, Zandra Rhodes or Bill Gibb. But another and perhaps easier way is to opt out of the present and into the past. That may be why Second-hand Rose has become a perennial bloomer.

Sound familiar?
