Thrifting the Trends: Satin Flower Mini Skirt

As much as I love classic, vintage pieces, I’m a trend-lover at heart. But I’m also keenly aware of how wasteful and unethical the cycle of fast fashion can be. As quickly as they come, the trends disappear. Because of that, I try to wait until I find them at places like the thrift store or the Goodwill Outlet because the trends tend to cycle through pretty quickly. Thrifting an ultra trendy pieces is a lot more sustainable than buying it retail, and saving it from a landfill is one of the most sustainable things you can do.

  1. Research Trends: Stay updated on current fashion trends through fashion magazines, websites, or social media platforms like TikTok and Pinterest. This past season I was really into the retro flower print.
  2. Resist the urge to buy it retail: Trends cycle through very quickly and end up at thrift stores within months or even weeks. Resist the impulse to buy fast fashion by giving yourself a little time to find them at the thrift store.
  3. Visit Thrift Stores Regularly: This is key! Thrift stores receive new inventory frequently, so make it a habit to visit them regularly. This increases your chances of finding trendy pieces.
  4. Explore Different Sections: Don’t limit yourself to just the women’s or men’s section. Explore all sections, including children’s, plus-size, and even the accessories aisle. You never know where you might find hidden gems.
  5. Mix and Match: Get creative with your finds and experiment with mixing them with your existing wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to layer pieces or combine different patterns and textures. In order to get more wear out of this trendy skirt I found at the bins, I opted for a more casual look I can wear multiple times🌸🌺
  6. Patience is Key: Thrift shopping requires patience. It may take time to find the perfect pieces, so enjoy the process and keep an open mind.

Remember, thrifting is all about the thrill of the hunt and finding unique pieces that reflect your personal style. Have fun exploring and experimenting with your thrifted treasures!
