Recreate Three Fall Trends Using Thrift Store Finds

Hey guys, its Marisa from New Dress A Day here!  New York Fashion Week is over and the spring 2014 looks have made their way down the runway, however we’re just starting to gear up for fall! I’ve put together three big fall trends using pieces acquired at Goodwill®.  Mission impossible? Nah, just like Tom Cruise, I was successful — and I didn’t have to scale any walls.

Look #1 Belted Blazers

The whole blazer/belt combination is on-point for fall.  Oscar de la Renta showed a red duo on the runway…

…and I created my own version using a Forever 21 jacket and Lux dress both from Goodwill in Los Angeles.  My duo was black, so by adding a bright and graphic belt on top of the coat, I was channeling my real life version of this trend.

Look #2 Masculine Whimsy

The mix of hard and soft is everywhere, including mixing feminine fabrics with a bit more edge.  I took Vika Gazinskaya’s leather skirt and white shirt combination…

…and recreated it using an H&M leather skirt (from Goodwill Boston), a vintage white blouse and black booties.

Look #3 Textured Outerwear

For a chic upgrade to a basic t-shirt and ripped jeans mix, ASOS paired a graphic tee with a boucle jacket for their current fall catalog.

Using this combination as inspiration, I took a t-shirt from my collection and paired it with ripped Todd Oldham jeans (from Goodwill Boston), a colorful Dana Buchman knit sweater with a vintage purse (both from Goodwill LA).

There’s nothing better than three chic runway looks created on a Goodwill budget that will have you on trend this season!
