It’s time, once again, to examine the hot “new” trends for the season, and remind ourselves that fashion recycles EVERYTHING! Here are just a few of the garments, colors, and styles that are trending for spring and summer that you can easily track down at your local thrift and consignment shops. (Note that all of the on-trend items I’m wearing below have been thrifted. Already.)
This isn’t a specific thriftable piece, of course, but it’s a dressing technique that was incredibly prevalent in the RTW shows that’s easily re-created using thrifted pieces. Combining several shades of the same color into your layers and accessories is bold, to be sure, but you don’t have to go with oranges and purples if you’d rather keep things subdued. Try riffing on navy or burgundy for monochrome outfits that are both seasonal and on-trend. How does thrifting figure in? If you’ve got a dominant color in your closet, add a few thrifted pieces in related shades to craft your looks.
