How To Shop For Vintage Clothing

Posted by on

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love thrift shopping. Why you ask? It's because thrift shops are the best places to find one of a kind items that will make you stand out from the general population :). In addition, buying vintage and preloved clothing save you some money and saves the planet. 

Vintage/Thrift shopping can be either fun or overwhelming depending on who you are, so in this post I will give you a few tips on how I make thrift shopping fun and easy for myself and maybe for you too:
  1.  Always have a specific idea of what you need to buy in order to save you time. 
  2.  Remember that if you find something that is a bit too big, you can always use the money that you saved by shopping at a thrift store to tailor that garment.
  3. We all know that thrift stores' clothing are a mixture of garments from different years and fashion eras so it's important to choose your clothes wisely, pick garments that are timeless, versatile and practical, especially if you are a fashionista on a budget. 
  4. When it comes to prints be careful. Stick to prints that are always in vogue, such as animals prints;  or choose prints that are unique, yet timeless, or something that you love and that fit your style. If you are not into prints, monochromatic garments are always a good choice.
I hope this will be of use to you and I hope that the next time you go shopping you won't let the clothes intimidate you :).

Love always,

Précindy.
