Here’s a Style Guide for Getting Back in the Swing of Things

share this:

Let’s address the elephant in the room. It’s been a while since any of us have had a reason to update our wardrobe. Our closets are looking like who we were before the year that shall remain nameless. The amount of time that has elapsed between then and now has left a gap in our closets waiting to be filled with clothes that reflect just how fabulous we are now. You know what that means? We now have a valid reason (dare we call it a duty) to not only update our closets but do it with the planet in mind. In true thredUP fashion, we got you covered. Read on for a thrift guide that will help you get back to important aspects of life with a rejuvenated wardrobe. 

1. Back to Restaurants



In need of updated looks for a meal out? There’s an outfit for every cuisine. If you’ve already had dine-out looks on the brain try maxi dresses or mini dresses with an empire waist. Silhouettes that cinch higher up on the waist give you plenty of room for first course, second course and dessert (or course). Dresses not your vibe? Wear flowy blouses with necklines begging to be accessorized. And don’t forget your handbag! Try a shoulder bag that accents your outfit perfectly without overpowering the look. 

2. Back to Work

Whether you’re thrilled to be back in the office or not so much, use your wardrobe to get you excited to take on the day’s tasks! For a workwear pick-me-up try having fun with your blazer selection. A blazer with a bright colored hue can be the pop of color you need to energize you for the day. Pair your statement blazer with a neutral top and straight-leg pants. Got enough blazers? Try a midi sheath dress instead that gives shape back to your body and pair it with loafers or kitten heels

3. Back to School

Whether you have kiddos headed back to school or you’re in need of a fresh new look for the upcoming semester, look no further for your one-stop-shop for back-to-school shopping! Thrift your way to a stylish school year by shopping totally-you styles. Keep it casual and playful by shopping for tees and sweatshirts adorned with fun graphics. For warmer days try T-shirt dresses! They go great with a staple lightweight denim jacket and statement white sneakers that go with everything. Bored of backpacks? Thrift a roomy tote to load all of your school essentials into that’s the perfect addition to any look. 

4. Back to Weddings

Headed to a wedding in the near future? Make sure you come with a gift in hand, but most importantly dressed to impress! Wedding guest and bridesmaid filters, your time has come. Select these filters and shop endless pages of dresses that are perfect for the big day. Let the length do all the work for you and shop maxi styles that elegantly elongate the body. Top off the look with a dainty heel and a statement clutch. You save sooo much money, meaning you can buy more without breaking the bank!
