12 Months of Thrifting: Shapes

Welcome to the 12 Months of Thrifting Challenge! The goal of the challenge is to help you add a “dash of thrift” to your outfits using 12 themes that you can easily find at secondhand stores. This month’s thrift and style prompt: shapes

What do we mean by shapes?

Exactly what it sounds like! Thrifting and styling clothing, accessories, prints, and patterns in interesting shapes. Squares, circles, 3d shapes, triangles, and so on.  

Why shapes? 

  1. Incorporating shapes into your wardrobe is a fun and easy way to add an interesting statement element to your outfit.
  2. You can find a lot of interesting pieces with shapes at secondhand stores. 

How we like to wear them


One of my favorite ways to add a simple “dash of shapes” is by thrifting purses, jewlery, and accessories in fun, basic shapes. For example, a round or square purse. Triangle-shaped earrings, or v-shaped scarves.


For the next level up with this theme, I opt for bolder pieces like a dress with a heart shaped or geometric pattern.


When I’m feeling bold, I’ll search places like Goodwill for things with asymmetrical shapes or even fun kitsch finds like a phone-shaped purse!
