We’re college kids living on college budgets, so it’s only natural that we’re permanently strapped for cash. So what happens when we need a change? When we’ve had enough of all of our clothes and we find ourselves staring into our wardrobes and exclaiming “I have nothing to wear!?” Aha, that is where the wonderful world of thrifting steps in!
This Fashionista’s outfit is the perfect example of the wonderful goodies that can be dug up in the depths of thrift stores like Buffalo Exchange, Beacon’s Closet and Crossroads Trading Co. This Fashionista proves that even if you’re sick of all of the clothes in your closet, you don’t have to spend a load of money on brand new clothes.
This Fashionista likes to revamp pieces that she’s had in her closet for a while by teaming them with newly found thrifted pieces to create new outfits. Both this classic corduroy American Apparel skirt and the cropped ASOS turtleneck are pieces that she’s had for a while, but she gives them a new edge by teaming them with thrifted finds like these real leather Capezio boots that she found for $15 at her local Buffalo Exchange! She also found her fun silver miniature harmonica necklace, her Gap chambray shirt, and her Coach bag in various thrift stores!
Most thrift stores offer an option to receive either cash or store credit for selling your clothes to them, thus making thrift shopping even more guilt-free. It’s a total win-win for all of us college kids! You can find great quality pieces that range from vintage, to high-street brands like Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and Topshop, and sometimes even some designer! Thrifting is a great way to bring some change to your wardrobe and your outfits without spending a fortune, and this Fashionista proves just how successful a little mixing and matching of both firsthand and secondhand items can be!
