Secondhand Style Secrets: How Thrifted Pieces Can Elevate Your Outfit

If you’re looking for ways to make an outfit look more put together without much effort and without paying full price for classic pieces or trends, look no further than the racks at Goodwill Akron stores! These are some of my favorite staple items to look for when I’m thrifting that can serve as versatile pieces in your wardrobe and will instantly elevate a simple look:

  1. Embroidery: Embroidered items are intricate designs using thread, creating beautiful patterns and motifs. Embroidered clothing or accessories are timeless, add textural interest, and can make a statement in an instant!
  2. Blazer: Blazers have stood the test of time in the world of fashion and have been a closet staple for decades. They are versatile pieces of clothing that can be dressed up or dressed down, and effortlessly transition from professional to casual settings. Whether you’re looking for traditional single-breasted blazers to modern oversized or cropped styles, chances are, Goodwill Akron has options to suit every personal style and occasion.
  3. A Classic White Button-Up Shirt: This is the ultimate thrift store staple that will never go out of style. They can be worn on their own, layered under sweaters or blazers, or even tied at the waist for a more casual look.
  4. A Pair of Lifestyle Sneakers: Comfortable and stylish, a pair of lifestyle sneakers in either white or a bold color can be paired with a variety of outfits, from jeans and T-shirts to dresses and skirts. They add a casual, cool vibe to any look.

Remember, thrifting is all about being open to unique finds and experimenting with different styles. Mix and match these thrifted staples with items you already own to create a variety of stylish outfits.

Happy thrifting!
