5 Ways to Rock Your Thrift Style

This is an adaptation from my sad and neglected Thrift.City.Life blog post on looking fabulous in thrift store style. I'm a little under the weather and looking a hot mess with a crumpled ball of tissues in my hand right now. I have no fresh photos. I hope you will enjoy the throwbacks!

5 Ways to Rock Your Thrift Style


1. Wear the most stunning shoes you own. Shoes are the base to every outfit. Start off with the most amazing shoe you own and work from there. The right pair of shoes are an instant upgrade to any look. It’s true. Here's a test: drape a sheet over you toga style. Put on your flyest shoe. Go look in the mirror. Looks good, right?

2. Mix thrift fashion with the latest trends. Throwing in an accessory or two from thrift shops can punch up your look and set you apart from the 479,938 other people who bought the exact same piece. Add an 80s stretchy belt to your waist or a fabulous 60s rhinestone brooch to your top.

3. Know what works for your body. If pencil skirts look great on you, they are going to look good on you even if the skirt is from the 50s. Personally, high waistlines work for my body type so I, at the very least, try them on while out thrifting. Fashion is not necessarily about the latest trends. It's feeling good in whatever you choose to wear. (yeah, I said it!)

4. Mix decades. In order to avoid looking like you’re wearing a costume, break up the years. Pick different decades if you're going to wear vintage from head to toe. Wear vintage on top and current fashion on bottom. If you're wearing a vintage dress keep your accessories current. There are a lot of ways to break it up so that you don't look like you came straight out of a particular time period.

5. Be confident. Confidence is key in most situations. It's always in fashion and on trend. Every woman should have it. Trust me. You’ll look fabulous it whatever you wear!

When I thrift vintage, I usually go more for accessories and bags than clothes, it's always easier to mix those in and keep everything looking contemporary!

I agree with all of these! I love vintage clothes but I don't want to look like I'm Betty Draper. (Well, mostly. Haha.) confidence is key, as you said! You look fierce in everything but I particularly adore the neon skirt and the leopard romper.
