I am so excited to share this new series of posts that will demonstrate just how easy it is to create first-class style with secondhand items!
As Seen In is a feature that highlights how to recreate an outfit or specific item in a recent publication with pre-loved pieces. Having updated, on-trend style is achievable without always shopping new. Shopping secondhand is better for your budget, kinder to the earth, and awesome for creating a unique personal style.
The March 2019 issue of Real Simple magazine features a basic I love - high-waisted pants - styled three ways. The pants photographed are Paper Bag trousers costing $60 from H&M.
I found a bunch of similar options on thredUP (at about 1/4 of the cost or less) that will help you achieve the same look if you don't already have this essential in your closet. A straight, trouser, or wide leg will emphasize the narrow, high waist.
Each of the three looks - casual, classy, and professional - can be completely re-created using thrifted items from thredUP:
Tee and Sneakers
Scarf and Trench Coat
Which option do you like best? Could you spin any of these outfits using items from your own closet?
