Thrifting Through Summer
Let’s be honest, thrifting has gotten us all some amazing pieces! Some of the best pieces are found in the treasure hunt you endure when stepping into your local thrift store. Thrift stores can be heaven for someone who loves DIY, turning someone else’s loss into your gain. When you find that rare piece no one else is going to have this summer it will all be worth it. This is the thrifting guide, filled with tips to make you an expert on what to pick up this summer.
What To Buy #1: Jeans/Shorts
Shorts are a must have and most thrift stores carry good quality brands. You may find an old pair of Levi jeans which can be turned into the perfect summer shorts.
What To Buy #2: Denim jackets
Instead of buying that expensive denim jacket with a vintage tag, you are bound to find a similar item for way less while thrifting. Denim jackets are a staple for day and evening or for that late night walk on the beach.
What To Buy #3: Vintage Sunglasses
You can never go wrong with a pair of sunglasses and the thrift store is the perfect place to find them. Thrift stores will have the cheapest option when it comes to vintage sunglasses. When shopping, keep in mind that bigger cities may overprice. You may have better luck in your local town finding the perfect pair of sunnies.
What To Buy#4: Baseball hats
Baseball hats are the perfect alternative to sunglasses. They add an edgy look to your ensemble; some of the best finds are at your local thrift store. If you stumble across a great hat while thrifting, soaking the hat in some laundry detergent for a couple of hours will get all the bacteria and stains out (if there are any). In the end, you are left with your summer hat.
