This doesn't mean grab the first pair of pleated pants or floral vest you find on the rack-- instead, thrifting '90s styles means carefully searching for just the right item. These are the things that I am looking for right now on the racks of my local second-hand stores.
>> button-up blouse: From denim ones to plaid ones and great solids-- I love button-up blouses for the versatility they offer. They're great layered or worn just with a nice pair of jeans. (Pictured button-up blouse from Gap)
>> plaid skirts: Plaid is everywhere-- plaid pants (love, love these ones from Loft), plaid tops and plaid skirts. There are definitely some plaid or tweed skirts to be found in the depths of your local Goodwill. (Pictured plaid skirt from Madewell)
>> slouchy sweater: Slouchy, comfortable, loose-- sweaters are in and they don't have to be perfect. Snag a comfy one for a casual day at work or get a thicker cabled one for layering over your thrifted blouse. :) (Pictured sweater from Nordstrom)
>> leather skirt: Leather is everywhere this fall and I really like it in a longer skirt. Definitely don't go for a shorter leather skirt-- unless, well, I won't go there. But I've already found a few leather and suede skirts but have yet to find one in my size. Don't worry-- I'm still hunting. (Pictured skirt from DKNY via Macy's --this Karen Kane skirt also looks great.)
>> turtlenecks: People with cold necks, rejoice; the turtleneck sweater is back. There are lots of these out there and perfect for the chillier months ahead. (Pictured turtleneck from Banana Republic.)
are you a thrift-store shopper? Anything you're hunting for? I should mention that I am also constantly on the lookout for an army-style jacket and blazers.
