If you’re looking forward to what’s to come this year in fashion, we’ve got you covered. This year’s fashion style trends are all about looking chic while curating the perfect “found” look. That means original pieces, lived-in denim, and throwback patterns and accessories are ready to make their way back into your wardrobe. Lucky for you, these trends, like vintage denim and classic cardigans, are better off purchased at a thrift store. While high-fashion designers are charging a pretty penny to achieve thrifted looks, why not go for the real thing, and save some money while you’re at it.
Check out some of the top fashion style trends you can find at a thrift store. It’s time to start thrifting for 2020 fashion!
Skinny jeans have dominated this past decade, but the next year is poised to bring on some new denim style trends. The best part is that there’s something for everyone. With a variety of styles gracing the runways, looking modern and on-trend will be easier than ever when it comes to denim. One thing’s for sure, thrifting is the way to go for these throwback denim trends.
Many fashion brands are designing jeans with a vintage, lived-in look. However, for a true upcycled look, shopping at a thrift store is a must. Vintage denim is usually characterized by a faded or acid wash look. Front seams are also in this year, where the stitching runs down the fronts of the legs. Combined with a straight leg and high waist, you’re sure to nail the vintage denim trend.
Boot Cut & Flares
The denim silhouettes from the 60s and 70s are making a comeback. Embrace your inner Donna Pinciotti and let your jeans flare out at the bottom. While this trend may not please all fashionistas, many designers are already on board. Paired with sneakers, or dare we say clogs, look for a higher waist to keep this trend modern and fresh.
Distressed denim will be big again next year. Think high waists, straight or skinny fit and perfectly placed rips in the knees. Beyond the everyday look, designers are pairing distressed denim with chic blouses and fancy blazers to give ripped jeans a high fashion look. You can always do your own distressing with a seam ripper tool and little creativity.
Evolution of Athleisure
Two-piece sweatsuits are the new weekend yoga pants. Brands like Champion, The North Face, and other outdoor clothing brands will dominate the athleisure trend next year. This chic comfort trend isn’t just for casual days. Some stylists are pairing work-appropriate sweatpants with designer footwear and elegant tops to create an athleisure look fit for the office.
French Girl Cardigans
Simple, dainty and chic. Every French girl loves a classic cardigan for her everyday look, and now this trend is making its way to the American wardrobe. The trick to this look is to wear the cardigan as a top, rather than as a second layer. Keep the buttons dainty and smaller. Button all the way up and tuck in the cardigan to a skirt or pair of jeans to get the true Paris-inspired cardigan look.
Lots of Leather
Incorporating leather into your everyday look will be on-trend in 2020. Especially worn in unexpected ways like as a top instead of a coat or a headband instead of a purse. Genuine leather and leather-like materials give an outfit an added elegance that doesn’t feel too off-the-runway. Since leather has been a popular trend over the years, scoring a great pair of shoes or a pretty new handbag at a thrift store is bound to be easy.
In 2019, the return of the two-piece set for women came in hot. This year, suits are here to stay. This trend is especially fun because you can play around with patterns and colors that express your personality in a big way. What’s not to love about wearing a plaid skirt and matching blazer? Or how about hot pink pants with a matching jacket? Whatever you desire, hit the thrift store to score an original suit that will last you all year.
Backpacks Are Back
A trend that most millennials will remember from middle and high school, designer backpacks are making a comeback. Look for small- to medium-sized backpacks with simple pockets in mostly neutral tones. The great thing about this trend is that you don’t have to spend a lot to get a designer look. Many budget-friendly brands have designed knockoff backpack looks over the years. The backpack trend is great for replacing your usual carryall and it works for the office and weekends. What’s not to love about a hands-free handbag? We’re here for it!
Polka Dots Are The New Gingham
While gingham is still definitely a must for your wardrobe, we’re loving bold polka dot patterns for this year. Flowy polka dot dresses and blouses are the perfect look for spring and summer, and so much fun to wear. There’s something so feminine chic about a polka dot pattern, as long as it doesn’t appear too childish. Keep it modern and fresh, but don’t be afraid to be bold with this fashion trend.
