Over the years I’ve taken notice that the style I see on the street OUTSIDE of the New York Fashion Week shows is often more chic and wearable than what is being shown INSIDE on the runway! The people who actually attend the shows pull together looks representing what’s in style for THEM.
Isn’t that just what we do when we shop at Goodwill? We’re looking for new ideas, new ways to try out unfamiliar styles and we’re keeping an eye out for classic pieces we can use ALL the time. In the slideshow this week you’ll see a variety of styles represented, but they all have a common denominator–CONFIDENCE!
STREETWISE STYLE TAKEAWAYS:
Dresses always work if they fit and flatter.
Unique jewelry accessories will make any simple tailored pieces into instant high fashion.
Skirt lengths are up to the individual, not the fashion magazines.
Handbags should be just as interesting as your clothing .
Sunglasses should be a vital part of your wardrobe. Have quite a few pairs on hand to coordinate with your outfits and your mood.
Prints are always in style, whether it’s stripes, florals, or abstracts in dresses and separates alike.
Shoes, shoes, shoes! Don’t forget that a great shoe will take your look to the next level!
Black and white is always in style, and you just can’t go wrong with a strong combination from the opposite ends of the color spectrum.
Why not make YOUR everyday style into more of a statement like these folks did? At our Goodwill prices, you can afford to have fun, and fire up your fashion passion for spring and summer while supporting our mission. That’s a WIN/WIN!
