You Can Find These 7 Currently Coveted Fashion Trends At Your Local Thrift Shop

Fashion is cyclical, so, eventually, what’s old is new again. And with the latest focus being on fashion’s effects of the environment, it’s important to support sustainable shopping trends. Thrifting has been a long tradition, but more recently thanks to shopping sites and apps like Poshmark and ThredUp, you don’t even have to sift through racks if you don’t want to.

If you’re afraid you won’t find any current styles, then rest assured that trends won’t be hard to nail, even if you are buying resale items. We bet you won’t have any trouble finding something fashion-forward for the season, even if it was previously loved by someone else.

If you don’t already have a pair that you kept from your mother’s closet, then there’s a good chance you’ll find some great vintage bell-bottoms at your local thrift store. If a full-on bell-bottom is just too wide a leg cute for you, then go for a slim cut with a flair.
