In the past few months the color burgundy has been a prime color in everyone’s wardrobe. Starting early fall and making its way into winter, this reddish-purple hue stepped on the scene as a neutral color making appearances with other neutrals such as navy blue, grey, and black. It seems as though burgundy not only has been worn as clothing, but in accessories such as hats, jewelry, and shoes as well; not to mention the sultry look it gives to nails and lips. Luckily for you, burgundy isn’t a hard color to pull off, essentially making any skin color stand out.
Thrifting Fashion Tip: Be bold and beautiful with burgundy during these chilly months while you can, and you’ll be sure to turn heads.

“The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world.”
If you haven't gotten it by now, I'm obsessed with oversized items for the winter. These items can be sweaters, jackets, and/or cardigans. It's all about pairing this items with the perfect fitted counter items. What do I mean by that? If you are wearing an oversized sweater, go with a fitted bottom or no bottom at all (that's if the garment is long enough to cover what needs to be covered) If you're wearing baggy bottoms, pair it with a fitted top. You can throw on an oversized cardigan if you like. That could work too.
Thrift Tip: Wearing too many oversized items at once can make you look like your wearing your older sibling's hand-me-downs. You want to find the perfect baggy for your body type and offset the loose fitting items with something fitted. (pssst. ladies... this look also gives the illusion that you're smaller as well)

This isn't the first time seeing this face. John started with The Color Tag as a Thrifter [Not So] Anonymous, but we loved his look & personality sooooo much that we had to feature him once more! From a photo submission to featured model...
John came prepared with this awesome multicolored track jacket paired with a red snapback hat. What a perfect styling match! The red hat added the extra touch needed to make the red pop in his shirt. He was matching but not too "matchy" which seems to be a problem for most.

The Color Tag had to introduce ONEIL, an up and coming stylist! His style is impeccable. We just had to have him share his fashion goodness with you, our viewers! Lets see what he has say about his style and his fashion accessory must have...
"Glasses are one of the most important accessories in my wardrobe. It brings out a character within based on the style of the glasses.
My style is very versatile. It has definitely evolved over time based on my maturity. My style doesn't stick to a particular trend. It consist of a little street wear and class depending on the mood that I'm feeling on that particular day. All in all my style describes me as a person. "
Thrift Tip: Make sure you visit the accessory section of thrift stores first. You will find glasses there. Since the good stuff goes fast, be the first to the counter to stake your claim in the hidden treasures.
