The sweater donned by this Fashionisto is a great thrift shop find. Motivated by the bargain-like quality of “thrifting,” this Fashionisto says he shops around Davis’ local thrift stores. He says that because pricing is competitive, he feels that he can get more for his dollar. This is an important value in the current economy, and thrifting has proven a great way to get more bag for your buck. Not to mention thifting is great for the environment and can also lead to finding some amazing pieces.
This sweater also makes a great statement piece for winter. It provides a breath of fresh air from the all too common winter neutrals and allows the outfit to look unique. Such an attribute is really only achieved through unique shopping, which thrifting definitely provides for. When you have a very interesting piece like this sweater, the rest of the outfit can remain simple. Add blue jeans and Converse sneakers to the outfit to keep it basic and allow for attention to be drawn to the patterned sweater.
Hint: For a great find, like this sweater, patience is key. While shifting through thrift shop bins, try to look for bold items. When you bring the bold pieces home, you can pair them with your more basic clothing articles to give your outfit a fresh look. If thrift shopping is not your thing, aim to find clothing articles with interesting patterns or unusual coloring. No matter where you decide to shop, aim for finding one of a kind pieces that will lend creativity to your wardrobe.
