2024 Fashion Trends At The Thrift Store

Trends change almost daily but staying up to date with 2024 fashion trends doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. Thrifting is the best way to not only stay ahead of coming fashion trends but also to sustainably build your wardrobe.

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the biggest fashion trends coming in 2024 and tips for finding them in your local thrift store.

Trend #1: “Peach Fuzz” The 2024 Pantone Color Of The Year

Color is everything when it comes to fashion. And no one knows color like Pantone. The company specializes in color, and they showcase this annually by picking a color of the year. This color is often used as a loose style guide for fashion designers, fashion magazines, and influencers. But it isn’t just fashion, the Pantone color of the year will crop up anywhere and everywhere from household goods to artwork.

The 2024 color named “Peach Fuzz” is the perfect soft orange with subtle hues of pink. Pantone describes the color as “cozy” and they believe it represents a desire to nurture kindness, compassion, and connection. We’re not sure if a color can do all that—but one thing is for sure, within the next couple of months, this color will be everywhere.

While it might seem difficult to find this exact color trend at the thrift store, remember that fashion is all about self-interpretation. This means finding items that are evocative of this color will still hit the mark. Look for light oranges, light pinks, or anything that’s warm-toned and soft.

Trend #2: Girlcore

2023 was the year of the girl. With cultural phenomena like the Barbie movie and Taylor Swift’s Eras tour, everyone was not only embracing womanhood, but girlhood. This trend may have started in 2023 but it’s still going strong in 2024. And it’s going to dominate fashion in a big way.

But what does girlcore mean? In short, girlcore is a return to simple and cute styles that are usually seen in children’s fashion. Things like bows, ruffles, lace, embroidery, and even pastel colors like pink and peach. With so many women embracing this girlcore aesthetic, many fashion designers are leaning into it with their new collections. Which will only spark more enthusiasm for the trend.

So if this trend is new, how are you supposed to find items for it at the thrift store? Easy, this 2024 fashion trend isn’t as new as many people believe. Design elements represented in girlcore fashion like ruffles and lace were popular in the 80’s. While elements like bows and embroidery were popular in the 90s. That makes the thrift store the best place to find second-hand fashion-forward outfits for this growing 2024 fashion trend.

Trend #3: Body Positivity

The self-love and body positivity movement that started in the late 2010s only continues to pick up movement and remain popular as we move into 2024. Gone are the days of dressing a certain way to fit into a particular societal box. Being self-conscious of yourself is out—while loving yourself and your body is in.

That means dressing in a way that’s authentic to your style and personality. If you want to wear big bold prints with lots of fun colors, do it. If you want to sparkle in all your outfits, have at it. This trend focuses on recognizing everyone’s individuality and accepting people for who they are and how they want to dress.

That’s why the thrift store is, and always has been, the place to shop. Thrift stores have something for everyone, regardless of shape, size, or style. Thrift stores also have whatever you need to complete a full outfit—everything from clothes to accessories.

So if you’re trying to bust out of your shell in 2024, consider building a trendy wardrobe at a local thrift store.
