There are two kinds of thrifters: the ones who buy what they like and the ones who seek out high quality brands to add to their closets.

I’m a little bit of both and try to keep an eye out for companies that jive with my style and have consistently worked on my body in the past. They include Lands End for solid staples, H&M for testing trends, and Old Navy for classic pieces with a twist.

I know I’m not the only one so I polled some of my favorite fashionistas to learn more about who they’re wearing.

Some of these girls are seasoned thrifters and others simply have an eye for good taste at mainstream stores. I think this balance will offer interesting insight into what we should be buying! I know I was surprised by some of their answers.

Let’s take a look at their picks and find out what makes their outfits so drool worthy on the ‘gram!

Bryanna | @_cominginclutch

Bryanna has a knack for mixing colors and patterns all in one outfit! I think we could all take a page from her style notebook. ?

When asked where she gets the best pieces, she responded with Anthropologie because of it’s fun aesthetic. Their creative pieces make it easy to experiment with your style, plus you just can’t find stuff like it anywhere else!

Jamie has a super adventurous style and is always open to trying new things. Her ‘gram really keeps you on your toes because you never know what she’ll wear next!

But I did learn about some of the labels she rocks like..




Lane Bryant (Fun fact: LB has been around for 115 years so it’s possible to find real vintage & antique gems by them!)

Diane Freis, which is a designer who made frocks in the ’80s that went up to a 2x! (She’s rocking one in the image below)

And even homemade!
