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.
- Incorporating shapes into your wardrobe is a fun and easy way to add an interesting statement element to your outfit.
- 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!
