STYLE ADVICE: Thrift Style

STYLE ADVICE: Thrift Style

Everybody has heard songs about, seen, and maybe even experienced the craze of thrift shopping. Personally, it’s something that I have always wanted to do but personally I just don’t have the patience for it. I prefer to go online, find what I like, and then buy it in store. I talked to this Fashionista who I would consider to be an expert at thrift shopping to see how she does it.

She starts by picking out her outfits the same way the rest of us do, looking for cute and comfort while at the same time balancing the ever-changing weather. This Fashionista says this outfit, like the rest of her outfits, all comes from her favorite thrift store. I asked her how she thrift shops and she says her main thought process is to not look for anything specific. She told me,“Going into the shrift store with an open mind is the best thing you can do because you can’t look online and go pick it up, just walk around. Don’t just look at your size either because you are restricting yourself.”

Her style is eclectic consisting of ’90s, grunge, vintage, and sleek. The sweater she is wearing she found in the men’s section and thought it would be a good fit because she can layer it. She chose the suspenders because it shows her eccentric side. Her boots were picked for comfortability since she was headed to class, and the skirt is her everyday staple. After speaking with this Fashionista, I definitely learned a lot on how to thrift successfully and hope to find something great the next time I go thrift shopping
