Fall is one of the best fashionable seasons in the year, where we see the best of the best outerwears from cardigans, sweaters, blazers and coats. While these pieces are enticing to have and buy in every color, it is best to do it sustainably and by this I mean from second-hand pieces, thrift shopping, swapping with friends and family etc.
On today’s blog post, I will be sharing tips on how to build an efficient Fall wardrobe in a sustainable way. This post is in collaboration with Goodwill Industries of Oklahoma.
Most of my readers/audience across my social media channels, know by now that I am an advocate for sustainable fashion and one of them is thrifted items. I love a good thrift find. It’s the thrill I get from finding an amazing item in excellent condition, quality and fit. Most times, I am lucky to find new items, never worn, incredible brands and great vintage pieces. Speaking of incredible brands, I found this Haggar cognac blazers with gold buttons in my local goodwill store. Perfect lining, everything in tact and the fit is incredible. Blazers like these go for around $100, but I got mine for less than $7. Definitely a great pair with this Old Navy maxi dress I also found new and under $7.
While thrifting may not be your thing, I encourage you to take ONE trip to your local goodwill store to see what you can find for your Fall closet. Don’t go with a particular item in mind, but have an open mind to shift through the racks in search for something worth including in your Fall collection. I was at the verge of giving up when I found these pieces and also a Tommy Hilfiger blazer with great fabric and details. (can’t wait to style that).
Another great tip is by styling your pieces as your shop. The last thing you want to do is leave the thrift shop without knowing how you plan on styling your pieces. Remember, there are no refunds or exchanges when you shop thrifted items. These are the best times to thrift pieces that are made of wool and goodwill has a stash of those items.
