How to style Charity Shop Items | Thrift Made Fun

Welcome to a new series on my blog, YouTube channel & Instagram. I have created Thrift Made Fun as a way to inspire fellow thrifting enthusiasts. It is a community for fashion and craft lovers who love to shop second hand, save money and turn something old into something new. This post is all about Charity Shop Items I picked up for under £15 and how to style them.

How To Style: Charity Shop Items

  • Mans shirt: A man’s shirt is an extremely versatile piece of clothing and often the perfect unisex item. I picked this one up for £2.99 and its near new quality. To style up an oversized shirt it is super easy. Button it up leaving 3 or 4 buttons undone and push down the neckline onto your shoulders. Creating this off shoulder style makes it look instantly more stylish and sexy. Roll up the baggy sleeves and add a waist belt to cinch in at the waist. The finished result is a shirt that looks much more expensive then it is. It is perfect for changing up your workwear or for casual summer days.

  • Leather Belt: The leather belt is such an everyday wardrobe essential. I picked up the one in the photos above for only £1. If it’s a bit big create new holes yourself with scissors or a hole punch. It’s perfect for adding detail to any piece of clothing and makes anything look more expensive and stylish.
  • Roll Neck Jumper: A roll neck jumper is another basic that everyone should own. They are great for layering under pinafore dresses and in so many other outfits. I purchased this one for £3 as well as the pinafore dress for £3.99. The outfit is so cute and with a few small accessories, you can turn a basic look into a great stylish look.

  • Pinafore Dress: This dress above is a cute basic and can be worn for many occasions. I loved it worn over the cream pinafore for a relaxed look.
  • Silk Scarf: I love collecting silk scarves as you can wear them in so many ways. In my video below you will see I show 3 cool ways to wear them. This one cost only 50p and has such a lovely autumnal colour palette.
