Skip To The Thrift

Here are six of my favorite fall trends that you can definitely find at the thrift store right now.
Jean Vest. Guys there are millions of these laying around at the thrift store right now. I got one last week that was straight up Calvin Klein and one I would find at Uraban Outfitters for $70.
Bow Head Scarf. Thrift stores always have a huge collection of scarves. You can usually find them in the belt section.
Pleated Maxi Skirt. Granny's look terrible in them but I promise you'll look urban chic. I love the trend of bright maxi's this season. I would LOVE to find one in cobalt blue.
Boyfriend Cardigan. Make sure to check both the guys and girls sections when you're looking for this trend. I'm telling you, you'll be surprised what great textured chunky sweaters you can thrift.
Boot socks. If you find a cable knit sweater with a pattern you like just cut off the sleeves and wear them over your jeans and under your boots. It will look warm and cozy and you won't have all of the bulk of an actual sweater sock.
Tweed Boyfriend Blazer. One of my secrets about thrifting blazers is to shop in the little boys section. You'll find smaller sizes with the boyfriend fit, I'm telling you it never fails!
So ummm....what are you still doing reading this? Go out and thrift yourselves some fall trends!

  6. Oh my word! I need to do that sweater thing for my boots this fall.

    I just had a vision of freaking out the ladies at the thrift store of trying to put a sweater arm on my leg just to make sure it fit right. I like it.

  21. Sarah! Don't give me any more reasons to go thrifting!!! We just moved to an area that has thrift stores everywhere, and I'm going cray cray!
    Oh, and BTW, for those of us petite gals, girls jeans are the place to find some trendy colored jeans- I just picked up a pair of red skinnies!
