Fall 2022 Fashion Trends You Can Find at Thrift Stores!

Article below

1 - Plisse

This cheetah print plisse top was $1.00 at my local thrift outlet. I have it layered over a mesh super cropped shrug that I upcycled (tutorial here) and a free Zara faux leather pleated mini skirt that was gifted to me by a friend clearing out her closet. All in all this outfit cost less than a cheeseburger.

2 - Slip Dresses

I also thrifted this Victoria Secret nightgown at my local thrift outlet. I'm styling it with a few new in pieces. The cropped shearling bomber jacker in from Zara and the cream cargo pants are from Boohoo.

3 - Romantic Sleeves

I'm an absolute sucker for a good sleeve. It's just my luck that puffy and flowy sleeves are having a moment. This Kanji off the shoulder floral peplum top was thrifted at Buffalo Exchange for $19.50. I styled this really simple with some long wide leg plisse pants that I upcycled from a thrifted dress (tutorial here) and a Brandon Blackwood croc suitcase bag.

4 - Sheer Dresses

Another Buffalo Exchange find is this H&M sheer polka dot dress I bought for $12. I've styled it my denim bralette that was upcycled from old jeans (tutorial here) and flair leg jeans from Boohoo. The jeweled pointy toe flats are from Zara and I made the bucket bag from an old coffee can (tutorial here).

5 - Fringe

I'm giving all the drama with this Dictionary tweed and faux leather fringe jacket that I thrifted at Buffalo Exchange for $36.50. And to really make it pop I styled it with a lime green ribbed sweater from Forever 21, split ankle slacks from Nasty Gal, and ankle wrap heels from Zara.

6 - Maxi Skirts

I'm not always crazy about long skirts, but this one had me at Hello. I found this Ralph Lauren silk monochrome Vallauris maxi skirt at Couture Blowout, a high end consignment shop in Houston, TX. I also found this Tov white pointed shoulder faux leather jacket that is definitely screaming runway ready.

And of course I won't gatekeep the added little details of earrings, smartwatch, and lip stick.
