It's cold in Atlanta. Well let me correct myself... it's cold in the morning and it's colder at night, which can only mean that winter is right around the corner. So what does that mean for us fashion forward females? Resolve: WE NEED ACCESSORIES! I am not talking about jewelry (even though that's easiest way to transform any look). I'm talking about hats, gloves, and scarves. Think of these items as your new add-ons to your already fabulous thrifted jewels. Now is the time, if you haven't done so already, to start looking for your thrifted outer coat accessories.
Thrift Tip: It's always great to go rack by rack, but if you want to have the best thrifted outer coat accessories, go to that section first. Since it's typically the smallest category in any thrift store, you want to be one of the lucky ones to thrift the good stuff. This section is usually sprinkled throughout the store. I have seen it near the register or in a small metal bin hovered over a random rack, but even I, the thrift store guru, have trouble locating it at times. If you're having issues finding this section, ask an employee. They are always willing to help and they know the thrift store like the back of their hand.
If this Atlanta weather is any indicator of what is to come in the winter, I need to start preparing TODAY! I thought I start spoon feeding you some interesting trends for this upcoming winter.
Let's Talk L E A T H E R!
The first 'must-have' to staying fashionable despite colder temperatures is a few decent leather pieces. That includes jackets, jeans, skirts, gloves, hats, etc. You can never go wrong with any black leather piece, but that can get boring QUICK. Mix it up and have fun on your thrifted hunt for leather pieces. Having a wide range of color in your thrifted leather selection would put you ahead of the pack. Trendy colors for the fall are going to be , of course, the neutral colors, but try stepping outside of your comfort zone. Add some PLUM and Emeralds! Don't forget the BURNT ORANGE and the vibrant REDS!
You'll have better thrift store luck when you have an idea in mind. These are a few items I would love to score on my next thrift store run! Uses these images as inspiration for your thrift store treasure hunt!
_3 Things We Love About This Look:
1. The Pants
Burnt Orange is a popular color for this season. I am not sure if they are thrifted but, if so, AWESOME!
2. The Blazer
It's Fall! This is the perfect time to stock up on your thrifted blazers. Vintage blazers are perfect for Fall and a perfect addition to any outfit
3. The Vest Shirt
Floral print is very popular for this season & converting a vest into a top is GENIUS.
