On the eve of Earth Day, we have to talk about shopping secondhand and its growing popularity as an eco-friendly fashion alternative. It’s one of our best practices for reducing waste, and if you’re a regular like us, you’ll want to know the 8 thrift store fashion trends that we’re always on the lookout for.
These are the pieces that make secondhand shopping a real fashion treasure hunt! Take a look and we think you’ll agree.
1. Band Tees
The first stop is the t-shirt rack, where band tees are front and center on our minds.
Dresses, in general, are a favorite thrift store department, but we especially love to find pretty sundresses that we’ll live in all summer long.
3. Vintage Designer
This one is like finding gold! Who was the lucky person who came across these vintage Gucci heels?
4. Special Occasion
Special occasion dresses are usually worn only once or twice, so thrift stores should be your go-to stop when you need one.
5. Matching Sets
We love a good matching set, and a suit set like this is a major score.
When thrifting for fashion, we have a laser-like focus on one-of-a-kind retro and vintage pieces that we know no one else will have.
We can never have enough sneakers, and when you find them gently used, you give them a second life.
The biggest cost savings in a thrift store can happen with outerwear. When the piece is secondhand, you can upgrade the label, the materials, and the silhouette. Don’t pass up a great outerwear piece, even if you’re shopping in summer!
Besides these general thrift store fashion trends to always look out for, we have 30 current season trends over here in our seasonal selling guide. These are trends we’re buying now in our stores if you’re looking to sell your pre-loved clothes for cash or store credit.
