VCU Fashionistos are some of the most unique fashion forward college men that I have ever come across. One thing that gives our Fashionistos a personal touch on their style is the abundance of thrift stores that Richmond has to offer. Not only can a Fashionisto find a one of a kind piece at a second-hand shop, but also find it at a price that works with a college student’s tight budget. One of the most popular thrift stores to go to on campus is Rumors. With its prime location right on campus and a very style-savvy team of buyers, Rumors is a hot spot on campus for Fashionistas and Fashionistos alike.
I spotted this Fashionisto outside of our dining center on campus and was immediately drawn to his vintage, unique pieces. He was rocking a vibrant, fun printed sweater that he got from Rumors, which he pairs with a dark pair of skinny jeans. He finishes off the look with a pair of chocolate high-top sneakers which he folded down to expose the plaid lining, and a pair of the 80’s staple the wayfarer sunglasses.
Hint: Check out your local thrift store for a funky, 80’s or 90’s inspired printed sweater for this winter season. If you can’t make it out to a thrift store, Urban Outfitters has a large selection of vintage inspired pieces to achieve the same look. Also, for an extra layer of warmth this season, check out a pair of sneakers with an extra layer of lining to keep your feet warm and cozy throughout the colder months ahead.
