Spring is here, which means one thing: We need new clothes. The Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show is helping us put away our winter layers by showcasing the brightest and lightest fashions of the season. More than 75 exhibitors, including Chanel-Mania, Deco Etc., and Lulu’s Vintage Lovelies, will feature retro-wear with an emphasis on the ’70s so you can create your own Taxi Driver–inspired outfits, which were all over the runway at Marc Jacobs, without paying designer prices. Fittingly, since the show falls on the day of the Royal Wedding, organizers are offering a slew of elaborate, wide-brimmed hats so you, too, can feel like a princess for a day.
