10 Reasons to Thrift Off Trend

3:32 PM

Everyone always asks me if my skirt is on backward. It’s not. I realize that the style for skirts may be short in the front and long in the back but mine is the opposite of that. No, it’s not a mistake. It’s a different style. It is totally possible to find on trend styles at thrift stores however sometimes it’s fun to choose unique styles that are not popular.

Here are 10 Reasons You Should Thrift Off Trend:

1. Trends come back all the time so you could be the next trendsetter by choosing something unpopular today that will be popular tomorrow.

2. There is nothing more satisfying than doing something just because you want to do it.

3. Your style will undoubtedly be unique.  When you choose fashion that is not in style, you will probably be one of the few people wearing it. So go ahead and strut your unique self.

4. You have the freedom to choose what makes you feel the most beautiful. You can style for your body type or whatever is just most comfortable to wear.

5.  You can add a touch of uniqueness to your look. For instance, the outfit I have on for this blog post is not absurdly different from what is in style, but the cut of the skirt is that small change that adds a hint of originality.

6. There is a sense of adrenaline that comes from taking risks. Perhaps people will hate your chooses but then you must ask yourself, why do I care what they think? It’s turning into a cliché, however it’s true that you only have one life like the present so don’t be afraid to try something new.

7. Absurd thrifted fashion usually has a story attached to it. This may be something you never get
to discover (unless you shop at a small thrift store and talk to the owner) but either way the
clothing you are wearing has been worn by someone else and if they did extraordinary things 
in the garments, so can you!

8. By choosing unique pieces of clothing, you learn about yourself. Allow yourself to admit what you think is beautiful.

9. You can unlock an inner creativity that can be expressed in other activities.

10. Humans are by nature creators. Give yourself the opportunity to piece together different articles of clothing to create something wonderful.
