A great back-to-school wardrobe can mean different things to different age groups. Usually mom or dad is helping their little ones pick out the best styles, but when kids get a bit older they become more opinionated—even when parents still hold the purse strings. When it’s time to head off for college, young adults are looking to find themselves and a style that’s all their own, so they’ll buy what they like according to their whims.
I went to my local Goodwill and found a lot of things that are not only on-trend, but fashion-forward as well. I couldn’t picture everything, but I hope you’ll get some inspiration from my list and my photos!
Metallic shoes and accessories
Bright backpacks and (yes) fanny packs
Tops with unique designs and details
Long-sleeved sweatshirts and t-shirts with bold graphic designs
Denim of all sorts—but look for bib overalls, distressed finishes and blazers
Athleisure—including dresses, leggings, tops and jackets
Lumberjack—meaning classic flannel shirts
Animal print accessories, as well as shoes
Plain t-shirts to layer under other items
Goodwill is THE place to get a lot of fun wardrobe items for your kids—and maybe even yourself! Now is the perfect time to shop our well-organized stores, because you never know what you'll find, but I'm sure it will be AMAZING!
