The art of pairing fashion from different eras can be elusive, particularly when streetwear gets thrown into the mix. Taking this plight to heart, Courvoisier recently released a guide high/low dressing for just those moments when you can't decide whether to rock a throwback or wear something more modern.

For example, those vintage Persol sunglasses you copped from your local upscale thrift store might look downright American Hustle if worn incorrectly. If you're going to do vintage accessories, make sure the rest of your silhouette remains modern, with a slim trouser, a cool bomber, and a simple tee. Eschew dress shoes and go for a plain white pair of sneakers, and you're all set.
