  • Plaid

Although plaid has always been around, this style has started to be worn much more often in both professional and casual settings. Most people tend to associate plaid with warm flannel; however, the newest trend includes pants, skirts, and shorts. Complex in both colors and design, plaid is a great way to show off your ability to pull a matching outfit together. This summer, take a break from plain old denim and snazz up your outfit with some plaid!


  • Tie-Dye

Take a second to reminisce on the feeling of pure joy when tie-dying a t-shirt or being mesmerized by the colors and design of the clothing. Luckily for you, tie-dye is making its way back into the world of fashion and Goodwill has all the necessary items to create a DIY outfit! Through our wide selection of t-shirts, tank-tops, shorts, and every other article of clothing you could imagine, you will be able to take your own spin on this latest summer trend. P.S. You may be able to find a pre-made tie-dye item when you visit Goodwill so you don’t have to work as hard in the scorching heat!
