4 Thrifty Fall Finds From Goodwill

Autumn is officially here, and there’s no better way to kick off the season than by updating your wardrobe and decorating your home for fall. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, now is the perfect time to try out some new fall trends. Luckily, you don’t need to break the bank to celebrate fall in style. Goodwill is your headquarters for fall fashion for the entire family, along with stylish décor for your home! Here are some of our favorite thrifty fall finds you can look for on your next Goodwill shopping trip:

Faux leather jackets

No fall wardrobe is complete without a stylish faux leather jacket. Along with the classic black ” biker” jacket, some top trends for fall include beige, red, and white faux leather jackets. You can dress up your jacket by wearing it over a fall dress with tights and boots, or dress it down with a simple tee shirt and jeans. The outfit possibilities are endless, plus you’ll stay warm all day while looking effortlessly cool. Because leather jackets are so timeless, you can often find them at your local Goodwill store for far less than department store prices.

All things plaid

In 2018, we’ve seen a return of the most iconic looks from the 1990’s, including plaid. From matching plaid patterned suit sets to plaid jackets, blouses, scarves, and handbags, there’s no shortage of ways to wear this fall trend. You can even incorporate the stylish print in your home décor with plaid tablecloths, bedding, curtains, and rugs. For a DIY project, give new life to gently-used furniture found at Goodwill by reupholstering chairs, sofas, or loveseats with your favorite plaid fabric.

Winter-ready boots

With wintery weather on its way, you’ll need a great pair of boots (or two!) to ensure you’re prepared for rain and snow. Some of the top footwear trends of this fall are animal print booties, low cut cowboy boots, and 80’s inspired kitten heels. Head to your nearest Ohio Valley Goodwill store to shop our selection of stylish footwear ““ including fall boots ““ at some of the best prices around.

Elegant jewel tones

Rich, luxurious colors inspired by jewels are another emerging fall trend that you can incorporate into your wardrobe or home! Look for clothing and accessories in emerald, navy, sapphire, ruby, fuschia, and topaz to add a pop of color to any outfit. Jewel tones are also perfect for decorating your living space and bringing some warmth into your home. For a vibrant Thanksgiving centerpiece idea, look for clear or colored glass vases that you can fill with jewel-toned flowers such as roses, chrysanthemums, or black-eyed Susans.
