The changing of the seasons comes with a major wardrobe shift. It’s out with the light summer pieces and in with heavy winter coats, chunky knits, and lace-up boots. Instead of rushing to the stores for a new-season fix, we’d love to propose a different way to get your closet fall ready: by re-inventing existing pieces in your wardrobe with vintage and thrift-store finds, that is.

My wardrobe philosophy has changed massively over the past seven years. I used to walk into a store or visit an online shop and fall head-over-heels in love with an item. An impulse purchase would follow, and once home I would either realize I had nothing to wear it with or that I already had very similar versions of the same piece hanging in my closet.

Want to Upgrade Your WFH Style This Fall? Look to These 6 Stylish On-Screen Characters

  Want to Upgrade Your WFH Style This Fall? Look to These 6 Stylish On-Screen Characters From movies to TV, these 6 fashionable characters nail work-from-home style.In the hunt for fall WFH inspiration, why not look to stylish on-screen characters who have nailed the look? Vogue has found six of them, in particular, who have perfected work-from-home fits that are both stylish and completely easy to recreate. Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City, is of course, the master of glamorous WFH looks—but your look needn’t be so over the top. From tie-dye sweats like Zendaya in Euphoria, to a buttoned-up blazer look from Regina Hall in 2005’s King’s Ransom, there’s an office look for all types of workers and personal styles.

After reading about the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh in 2013, I drastically changed these shopping habits. The building in Dhaka, which housed several garment factories, came crashing down, killing more than 1,000 people and leaving thousands more injured, making it the worst industrial incident to hit the garment industry in history, according to the Clean Clothes Campaign. After watching documentaries like The True Cost and reading Dana Thomas’s book Fashionopolis I could no longer ignore the fashion industry’s devastating working conditions and environmental abuse.

Besides avoiding fast fashion all together, I took a pledge to always try to find a garment secondhand first before buying something new. After all, opting for pre-owned clothes and therefore extending the lifespan of a product is the most sustainable form of consumption. I also came up with a new wardrobe strategy: Nowadays I treat my closet like a showroom. I’m building a capsule collection of long-lasting, versatile pieces that all go together and that are easy to update for a new season with the proper styling, the right layering, and relevant accessories. Blazers, for instance, I wear all year round. Over a minidress with mules in summer and as a suit paired with tailored pants, a turtleneck, and sneakers in autumn.

  The Best Men's Clothing Subscription Boxes of 2020 to Build Out Your Wardrobe Shopping for dudes who hate shopping.Here’s the thing: if you’re even a semi-regular reader of this magazine—if you come to us to read up on hot sneaker drops, or the waviest new labels to check out, or whatever’s popping off in Paris right now—these men's clothing subscription boxes are probably not for you. That is, they aren’t really for anyone who already considers themselves to have a discernible sense of style, or is actively working towards developing one. There are no wild grails to be found within their thoughtfully-designed cardboard confines.

Need more inspiration? Let me introduce you to five young people from Amsterdam with amazing style who are all about re-wearing their clothes and updating fall looks with secondhand finds.

Amy Pham Thi, co-founder of online vintage shops Nho Girl and Buyitnow.club

Teen Vogue: Which piece in your wardrobe did you re-invent for fall?

Amy Pham Thi: A black leather trench coat that I found in a vintage store in Italy. When I tried it on, I instantly knew I had found the perfect fall staple. I style the coat with a linen button-up, jeans, and a striped pink wool Ralph Lauren sweater that I bought from an old lady at a flea market. When the weather allows it, I like to wear the jumper loosely over my shoulders as a scarf. The brown pointy-toe ankle boots are vintage Chanel and are without a doubt my best secondhand find, ever. I bought them for just 195 euro ($230) in a vintage shop in Japan.

55+ Long Weekend Sales to Help You Celebrate Anything But Christopher Columbus

  55+ Long Weekend Sales to Help You Celebrate Anything But Christopher Columbus Shop deep discounts on clothing, furniture, mattresses, and more.Despite all the hemming and hawing surrounding the original namesake of the holiday weekend, it tends to fall right around the time of year stores are looking to offload a whole lot of inventory. And offload they are, in the form of some pretty sweet deals on electronics, homewares, clothing, accessories, and basically anything else you can get your hands on.

TV: Where did your love for vintage and thrifting start?

APT: I grew up in Berlin, and every Sunday my dad would take me to a flea market. It was our weekend tradition. Nowadays I go through piles of secondhand clothes on a daily basis for my vintage businesses. After three years of doing this full-time, I have learned to dig up treasures faster. When I find an item and immediately start styling a full outfit around it in my head, I know it’s a keeper.

TV: What is your remedy for the ‘closet full of clothes but nothing to wear’ syndrome?

APT: Every once in a while I put all my clothes on my bed and start mixing and matching until I have lots of new outfit ideas.

TV: The future of fashion is

APT: … Hopefully more sustainable. And weird.

Tatjana Almuli, journalist and photographer

Teen Vogue: Which piece in your wardrobe did you re-invent for fall?

Tatjana Almuli: Growing up as a plus-size girl, I was taught to wear clothes that were flattering, aka all black and baggy. A few years ago I reached a point where I was done hiding my body. I felt the urge to start experimenting with colors, shapes, and sizes to discover my personal style. Enter: colorful and playful pieces like this Clueless-inspired suit. I updated this set for fall with a vintage Fleetwood Mac shirt and Dr. Martens. I hesitated for a long time whether or not to get Docs. I was afraid they would look too bulky on me as I’m tall and big and have huge feet (U.S. size 10). But my new fashion mindset also comes with a big “f-ck you” attitude. I’m so glad I finally bought them.

Donating Your New and Gently Used Clothes Can Save the Planet and Help People in Need

  Donating Your New and Gently Used Clothes Can Save the Planet and Help People in Need Fashion friendly? More like friendly fashion.Ahead, we've compiled a list of places to donate clothes.

And for more ways to give your gently used items, here are all the places to donate toys.

TV: Best vintage, or thrift store, find ever?

TA: The selection of plus-size vintage clothing in the Netherlands is small. Larger items are often snapped up by slimmer girls who want to wear oversized items. I totally get that — I also love oversized fits… but it’s really annoying if you actually are a larger size and can hardly find anything. I do occasionally get lucky though. A few years ago I was visiting a friend in Antwerp[, Belgium,] and found a beautiful red knitted cardigan with shoulder pads and studs: granny meets ’80s glamour.

TV: What is your remedy for the ‘closet full of clothes but nothing to wear’ syndrome?

TA: I love collecting photos of cool outfits on Pinterest or Instagram that involve garments similar to pieces in my own wardrobe, to fall back on on days when I don’t know what to wear.

TV: The future of fashion is…

TA: … Hopefully more sustainable and inclusive for people of all different shapes and sizes.

Giuliano Bolivar, graphic and visual artist

Teen Vogue: Which existing piece in your wardrobe did you re-invent for fall?

Giuliano Bolivar: This camel coat that I got as a gift from my best friend. It’s the perfect warm, cozy coat to throw over your pajamas for a run to the deli on lazy days. But when I do dress up, I love to layer a secondhand leather waistcoat on top. I’ve gotten very into layering vests over coats since last winter. The extra fabric helps block wind and it makes any coat feel new and different. This look has a Phoebe Philo–era Céline vibe to it, don’t you think?

TV: Best vintage, or thrift store, find ever?

GB: First thing that comes to mind is a pair of vintage navy blue motorcycle trousers that I got for 20 euros ($23). It’s a staple piece that earned its place in my autumnal rotation. The pants match everything else in my wardrobe perfectly, and they fit me like a glove.

TV: What do you love most about fall fashion?

GB: I specifically love the early stages of fall, when temperatures still allow you to wear jackets open so the full look is visible. I look forward to wearing more hats and other kinds of headgear this autumn, like my leopard bucket hat. Coco Chanel’s rule to look in the mirror and take one thing off before leaving the house certainly does not apply to my fall-style book.

TV: The future of fashion is…

GB: D.I.Y. culture. I often cut up pieces I’m bored with or reconstruct them into a new shape or silhouette. I also love to customize pieces with fabric dye and textile markers.

Sheila Janet Pinas, visual artist and art director

Teen Vogue: Which existing piece in your wardrobe did you re-invent for fall?

Sheila Janet Pinas: My mom’s leather pants from the ’90s. Some mothers pass on jewelry to their daughters to celebrate milestones in life, but mine knew I’d be much happier inheriting her trousers. I cherish the pants even more ever since finding out how harmful the leather industry is for animals and the planet after watching documentaries like Cowspiracy and What the Health. I decided to stop buying new leather altogether, which is also quite unnecessary as there are so many amazing vintage leather pieces available. P.S.: Mom, if you’re reading this, I’m ready for jewelry now!

  The Coolest National Park in Every State How many of these have you visited?

TV: Where did your love for vintage and thrifting start?

SJP: As a little kid, I loved going through my mom’s closet and dreamed of wearing her clothes in order to look like one of Eddie Murphy’s girlfriends in the movie Boomerang. I still get the most inspiration from old family photos and movies and soap operas from the late ’70s and ’80s.

TV: Is there any specific trend/item you look forward to wearing in autumn?

SJP: I’m planning on wearing lots of monochromatic outfits in primary blue, red, and yellow.

TV: The future of fashion is…

SJP: … Digital.

Chaima El Haddaoui, model and journalist

Teen Vogue: Which piece in your wardrobe did you re-invent for fall?

Chaima El Haddaoui: A black Acne Studios skirt that I love to layer over pants. Speaking of which, digging these black trousers up in a thrift store felt like winning the lottery. I had ripped my favorite pair of black trousers the week before and was in desperate need of a replacement. Not the easiest task, as I’m very specific when it comes to tailored pants. They need to have a fitted waist, a razor-sharp crease and pant legs that either completely cover my heels or ones that end right above my shoes. Finding a pair that ticks all these boxes seemed impossible, but I managed to succeed. My better half was wearing this green sweater the day we met. I knew right then and there I would claim it as mine at some point.

TV: Best vintage/thrift store find ever?

CEH: A dark brown, small waist bag from the Prada SS91 collection. I can tell from the cracked leather that the previous owner(s) wore it a lot, which I love. Now it’s my turn.

TV: Besides secondhand shopping, are there any other sustainable closet tricks you fall back on to avoid buying something new?

CEH: I have seven sisters and we all wear each other’s clothes. What I love about sharing clothes is that our personal scents start to blend. It creates this sort of nonphysical proof of our bond.

TV: The future of fashion is...

CEH: … Uncertain. The current fashion industry is exploitative, to say the least, and in desperate need of major changes. I hope we will all be reminded of the true essence of fashion: harmless self-expression. Another important thing is: you can fall in love with and appreciate certain items, without necessarily having to own them. And this applies to more than just clothing, by the way.

Allbirds Now Makes Super Soft Tees Made From Crab Shells .
The brand's new clothing line is as comfortable as their mega-popular sneakers.Over the past years, I've seen how Allbirds has been able to distinguish itself from most other clothing brands in the market today—and any guy who’s worn a pair of Wool Runners or Tree Dashers understands why they've become so popular. While competitors hop on the hamster wheel of limited-edition, trend-driven, overly-hyped-up releases for the compulsive shopper to forget about in a month’s time, Allbirds’ offerings are classic, ageless, and thoughtful for both the consumer and the environment.
