Hey beauty ♡
Have you ever asked yourself how you could upgrade your wardrobe but on a budget?
Then this blogpost is for you!
I’m going to list my 6 tricks on how to thrift a feminine wardrobe and nobody would notice it.
1. Know your color scheme
Before you get into a thrift store, you should think about the colors which look amazing on you. Therefore you can focus on these colors when you get into the thrift store. When it comes to a feminine wardrobe many would assume that a feminine woman would only wear pink. But I think that there are plenty of more options to choose from to look like a polished feminine woman. I would recommend finding pieces in one color, therefore it looks clean and more expensive.
2. Imagine what you would pick for a date night
The next tip of mine is, to think about what you would wear if you would go on a date. Would it be a nice pair of heels? Then you could look at the shoe section of the thrift store to perhaps find a treasure there. Thrift stores also carry jewelry, with which you could upgrade your look.
3. Keep an eye out for the business section
The can be such amazing pieces in the business section. Every woman should own at least one blazer.
When you have a corporate job, dressing professional and looking polished is a part of your job. When I worked at a private bank, I thrifted many pieces at thrift stores and I got many compliments for my looks. Just keep in mind, to only pick up clothes, that have barely been worn and don’t look used, so you won’t get in trouble at work.
4. Don't sleep on the classics
Have you ever dreamed of owning your own ‘Clueless’ outfit? The thrift store might make this happen. Always look for matching pieces. Sometimes they don’t hang together, so you will eventually find the matching piece somewhere else. Moreover there is a chance of scoring a beautiful looking evening dress, which would enhance your feminine appearance.
5. Keep treasure hunting for designer items
This is the golden part of thrifting! It does not happen too often but when it does, it’s magical. Always remember, when you find a designer good, take it instantly and don’t let it go. My ultimate tip is, to go to a thrift store in a wealthy area, therefore the possibility of finding designer items, is way higher than elsewhere. I scored this Gucci Blouse for only 5€, which would retail for more than 1000€.
6. Between oversized and seductive
Of course you can also wear comfy sweaters as a feminine woman. There are some beautiful sweaters out there, you just need to find them. And remember to try them on and leave them behind if they are itchy.
Furthermore, the lingerie section is also worth a look. What’s more feminine than a pretty nightgown?
I hope you got some useful tips on how to thrift a feminine wardrobe. Thrifting is always a journey and you’ll never know what to expect. It will take time to have a complete feminine looking wardrobe, but by thrifting it will at least not break your bank account. Happy treasure hunting!
