Sometimes one or two key clothing items found at a thrift shop can make a great costume. Visiting thrift shops this time of year in search of some thing specific can be tough, so it's good to go in with multiple ideas. Here are four simple and creative costumes that were put together with thrift shop finds!
Pencil skirt, retro top, scarf in the hair, keds or saddle shoes, and a scarf around the neck or hair. . .throw them together to create a simple, chic 50's look.
Find an epic wind breaker, throw on a white t-shirt underneath, add tennis shoes and maybe a clip board and a whistle. . . and you've got yourself a gym teacher costume.
FLOWER CHILD/PRAIRIE GIRL/EXCUSE TO WEAR A FLOWER CROWN
Find a flowy and flattering dress and construct a flower crown - boom! =)
Find a red trench coat or dye a light colored one red. (That's what I did with this one!)
Add some other red accessories and you have yourself a fab Carmen SanDiego costume!
These costume are fun and simple - but, they rely heavily on one or two items! When you're at the thrift shop, be open to what you might find as you keep these and other costume ideas in mind!
