12 Months of Thrifting: Metallics

Welcome back to the 12 Months of Thrifting Challenge! This month’s prompt is: Metallics.

Metallics are a great way to add some shine to your outfits. Metallic textures are often associated with formal wear, but from suits to shoes, you can easily incorporate this metallic theme into your everyday outfits. 

When I’m thrifting at Goodwill, I always find both new and vintage metallic pieces. Not sure how to wear this trend? Don’t worry! Every month we share three “levels” to wear the challenge theme, ranging from mild to bold. Here’s your thrift check list, based on your comfort level:
