Can you believe it’s finally fall? It might be difficult, given the 90 degree weather we’re currently experiencing, but temps are about to drop (really!), along with our power bills.
As the seasons change, I know I’m going to want to update my wardrobe with some nice new (to me) pieces. As luck would have it, many of the fashions that are considered on-trend for Fall 2016 hearken back to previous decades…which means they can easily be thrifted! Huzzah!
Here are my five favorites I can wait to thrift this fall.
I’ve been experimenting with power clashing this summer, and can’t wait to continue this into the fall. And what better to mix and match than dark & broody fall florals? If you’re wanting to shop this look secondhand, keep an eye out for floral dresses from the mid-90’s. They’ll have similar long lines, and a flattering fit.
Structured Short-Strap Handbags
Handbags are getting a much more structured look (think 1940’s-1980’s), which should delight thrift shop regulars, as they’re all over the purse section. I always see at least 10 anytime I pop in to Goodwill. I especially love this lovely bag from Dolce & Gabbana’s fall 2016 collection. Just imagine what you could do with a similar structured bag, a hot glue gun and some thrifted brooches!
That might actually have to be my next post…but I digress.
I used to rock many a choker back in the mid-90’s, and now they’ve made a comeback! Try Haley’s awesome tip of repurposing a thrifted thin belt to get this must-have accessory on the cheap.
Okay, I feel like secondhand shopping has been set to ‘easy’ mode this season. I see 80’s reptile print every single time I thrift. And you know what? I like it. I’m glad it’s getting a resurrection. It’s edgy & daring. And because fun.
Mini Skirt Suits
For those who are keeping score, this is the third mid-90’s trend that’s making a comeback this year, and I love it! Originally made popular by the movie Clueless, this look is a playful take on its more business-y predecessors. If you have a hard time finding a 90’s version, keep in mind that 1960’s-1980’s suits can easily be converted with just a simple hem of the skirt.
What fall trends are you looking forward to thrifting this season?
