For those who are on a budget, or who enjoy shopping at thrift shops such as Goodwill or Savers, there are ¬†infinitely many ways to revamp what is bought to make it your own. For example, if a design on a shirt appeals to you but the cut of the shirt doesn’t, there’s nothing that a pair of scissors can’t fix.

Adding additional accessories such as purses, high socks, cardigans or jewelry can also give your thrift shop outfit extra emphasis.
