Spring has finally sprung and I couldn’t be happier. As much as I adore my ever-growing collection of faux fur and teddy coats, I am also a big fan of sunshine, ice creams and mini dresses, all of which are not the most Winter- friendly! Now, I am not one to follow trends – I enjoy wearing what I want to wear and don’t want to repurchase a whole new wardrobe every season because that’s boring (and expensive!). Luckily, a lot of the key trends for Spring/Summer are purse friendly and ‘oh- so- me’, which makes being on trend more natural and fun. Without further ado, I’m going to talk you through my favourite key trends for Spring/Summer 2017!
Trend One- Gingham
Who doesn’t love looking like a picnic blanket?! In case you’ve been living underground, you’ve no doubt seen that gingham is everywhere this season. It’s been seen on catwalk shows including Molly Goddard and Shrimps and everywhere on the high street from Primark to Topshop; it is probably the key print for Spring.Read More »

Breaking dozen of hearts when One Direction took a break, Harry Styles has certainly been keeping himself busy. In between taking on Hollywood – thanks to his role in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming World War II epic Dunkirk – Styles has reportedly been putting the finishing touches on his first solo album, with the release rumoured for today!
He definitely knows how to grab people’s attention and his fashion choices are no different. While we wait with bated breath for today’s big release, why not keep scrolling and join us while we swoon over the British heart-throb’s best looks.

Hello, my names Ally and I’m super excited to be a guest blogger for The-Thrift today!
I’ve recently started writing about fashion, lifestyle, beauty and a little bit of travel on my own blog: Ally’s Style.
I’m an aspiring womenswear designer and I am a massive fan of charity shopping, bargain hunting, and sourcing genuine vintage clothing from anywhere and everywhere at the best price!
The best thing about thrift shopping and charity shopping in stores such as Barnardo’s, is finding the current catwalk trends at a fraction of the price!!!
So, here are a few S/S 16 trends and outfits I have created using pieces I have thrifted.
