Thrift shopping is great but knowing how to style your pre-loved pieces can be tricky sometimes. If you buy pieces you’ve had your eye on for a while, you’ll probably have no problem fitting them into your everyday wardrobe. This isn’t always the case– sometimes you find a random sweater or coat that you love and you get it even though you don’t know what you might wear it with. Here are my tips for styling thrifted pieces.
1. Mix your thrifted pieces with your wardrobe staples
Investing in staple pieces makes it that much easier when you find a sweater with a great print or a brightly coloured shirt. Having your go-to pair of pants or a skirt makes styling your outfit a breeze.
2. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns
One of my favourite pre-loved pieces is this black and white houndstooth coat that I refinished. While it’s a bold pattern, it’s still neutral enough to mix with a plaid skirt or checkered pants.
3. Have fun with your look
The whole point of fashion is to have fun and not take yourself too seriously. If you’re not having fun you’re not doing it right!
