While the idea of thrifting may not appeal to some, those who are willing to do dive in and wade through the racks know that thrifting can yield some amazing, sometimes high-end, fashion finds. Chantay of Pineapple Serenade rocks a 100% thrifted outfit, proving that thrifting can have you rocking some pretty major brands for way less.

Outfit Breakdown:

Dresss: Helmut Lang (similar here)

Style tip: When thrifting, keep an open mind. If something catches your eye but it’s not your “norm,” try it on anyways. You might discover something new about your style!


Hair Tip: If you want bangs, sans the scissors, simply pull forward the hair you want in your faux bangs, twist the ends, roll the hair under and secure with a pin. If you’re more visual, check out this faux bang tutorial from The Pin-up Noire.

Chantay, and boyfriend Chris, have plenty more thrifted styles on their blog, Pineapple Serenade, and you can catch them on Instagram and Twitter.
