1. Pops & Prints
A cute corduroy mini skirt can easily become a wardrobe staple for the late summer and early fall months. As you ease back into your class schedule, you can show off the last of your summer tan while also playing into some of the big trends of the season. Pops of color will continue to be big – whether you’re a fan of neon or enjoy some of the more muted pastels that continue to be popular – and repetitive prints continue to dominate the market too, like the adorable croissant top from Pull+Bear for sale at this awesome Chicago Goodwill for under $5.
2. Day to Night
Back-To-School can mean the return of a packed schedule. If you’re running from class to an internship to the cafeteria to a club meeting and then have plans to destress at a party day to night outfits will be the decision that keeps you going throughout the day without stopping back at your dorm. That, and coffee of course! This corduroy Free People jumpsuit – new with tags that tout an original price of $148 – was spotted at a Chicago Goodwill store for $14.99. A steal!
3. Old School Tops
For a more casual but still put together look, leaning into the vintage print top trend is going to be your new best friend. Whether you opt for a vintage or vintage-esq band t-shirt or an expertly faded cool print like the NASA sweatshirt in the picture above, you can dress it up or down to showcase your own spin on the trend. This look is versatile too – perfect for class, date night, or even logging a few hours at the library. And there’s no better place to look for old school tops to add to your collection than your local Goodwill.
