Put Together a Great Outfit From a Thrift Shop

STEPS
TOOLS

Thrift shopping can be very overwhelming. I like to start from one side and work my way over to the next side making sure to go through every aisle. It's very time consuming.

I do a lot of mixing and matching with my clothes. I mix consignment, thrift and clearance/sale.

The oversized shirt is from goodwill for $5. The bandeau was on sale at UO for $3 and so was the tights. The black shorts are old navy and are also from goodwill

It's okay to get something oversized. Just remember to balance out the look. I,e. If you wear an oversized sweater wear fitting bottom so you don't look frumpy. Unless that's the look you want.
