12 Months of Thrifting: How to thrift a cozy sweater

Cozy, slouchy, chunky sweaters are an absolute must-have for every wardrobe. They are comfortable, practical, and extremely stylish.

Tips for thrifting a cozy sweater:

Be Inspired: 

A simple “cozy sweater” search on Pinterest or Google will yield hundreds if not thousands of results.  Take a screen shot of your favorite one and use that as a guide next time you go to the thrift store.

Try Things On

Some sweaters may look awful on the hanger but don’t be afraid to try things on! You will be surprised how different they can feel and look once you style them.

Go Bold!

An oversized sweater will serve as the focal point of your outfit so why not go for a cool, unique pattern? The thrift store carries tons of one-of-a-kind textures and prints that can elevate a casual look. Personally, I’m a huge fan of 1980s chunky sweaters.

Stock up on Basics

Stock up on a couple oversized cozy sweaters in cream, tan or gray. These neutral colors will work well with practically anything you own. You can throw on a pair of black skinnies, wide leg jeans or even tights.

Check All Departments

Steal your grandpa’s style and take a walk over to the men’s department for an even bigger variety of cozy sweaters. Pick a style you like and make it your own.
