Sharita is a classic study in the power of a black-and-white color palette. Contrast is never out of style when it’s done as well as this look is. Start once again with a great dress from Goodwill, like this animal print from Kate Young for Target for $7.99. We topped it with a faux leather motorcycle-type jacket to toughen the look up a little. The structure of this rocking jacket from Elle was a steal at $6.99. Don’t forget to add some accessories too! Accessories are the quickest game changer in the fashion business. Here, we used some drop earrings that were $6.99, a necklace for $6.99, and a cuff bracelet for $1.49. TIP: Always carefully scan the jewelry cases at your local Goodwill for pieces that will complement items you already have. The shoes are also show stoppers, just like our model Sharita! They’re a classic Mary Jane-style in patent leather with an animal print by Anne Michelle—and they helped pull this entire fashion-forward look together for only $4.99!
The models you see in this blog are actual Goodwill shoppers who donated their time to participate in our annual Amazing Looks photo shoot. All clothing was selected from our very own Goodwill Store & Donation Centers and styled by Goodwill Fashion Expert, Bjorn Nasett. Hair and makeup was provided by Kitty Tierney of Impressions and all photography was created by Jessica Kaminski of Refinery Milwaukee.
All images for Goodwill's Amazing Looks prior to 2019 were supplied by John Grant Photography.
Rose is demonstrating why Goodwill is a great place to shop! Sometimes it only takes one fantastic item to transform your style. TIP: Dresses are one of the best values to seek out at our stores. In our photos, you’ll see this denim dress from Forever 21 for $7.99 is perfect for year-round wear. All you really need with a dress this great are some fun accessories, such as the statement necklace for $9.99, the large gold cuff bracelet for $3.99, and classic tortoise shell wayfarer-style sunglasses that were $6.99. That great leather clutch handbag is also from Goodwill and it elevates the look even more (and it was only $4.99). The strappy platform shoes are from Rose’s own personal collection and work fantastically well with this winning look! Denim works for each and every season so keep an eye out for some great pieces on your next shopping excursion!
