Pre-Loved Coats for Fall

The Thrifty Six Styling Pre-Loved Coats for Fall

There’s nothing I love more than styling coats when the autumn weather hits. And what could be better than finding a perfect, ultra stylish pre-loved coat for fall?! With this cozy flannel beauty, I feel chic even when dressed down.

I snatched this plaid pre-loved fall coat at my nearby Village des Valeurs– I just love to go peek in there regularly. When I spot out a gem, I grab it immediately before another style savvy fashionista gets her eye on it! Such purchases have me never looking back; just like with this one that I wear on the repeat.

How to Style Pre-Loved Fall Coats

There’s no magic to styling up pre-loved except for a few things you should keep in mind:

1- It’s important to find an item that is well-made and that was well cared for. This takes away all notions of it appearing as old. It’s ok to find items that need some minor repairs or tlc- but nothing major; unless you’re looking to give it a total make-over conversion.

2- Try to choose items that are different (not what everyone is wearing)- items that speak out to you in terms of excitement, creativity and that go with your personality. It’s fun to do this because this will add flair to your wardrobe as well as originality- and that never goes out of style! (Remember Dopamine Styling HERE – AND – HERE).

3- You don’t want to look ‘costume-ish’, but you do want to look current (not out-dated). The best tip for that is to pair the old with the new! Meaning, you should wear your pre-loved, or vintage item with something new. This will add a touch of uniqueness to your style, while keeping you on trend. And this is exactly what I’ve done with my pre-loved fall coat: I paired it with my brand new Wild Fable Jeans from Target (and of course some white booties just to shock since it’s after Labour Day LOL!). Can you see how the two work magically together that makes me look on trend?

And now let’s move on and see how my creative Thrifty Six Fashion Blogger friends are styling up their pre-loved fall coats!

“I have so many pre-loved coats and jackets but this is one that I wear frequently. I bought it on eBay a couple of years ago (it’s from Asos originally). The rich golden colour goes with so many outfits. Here, I’ve teamed it with a thrifted turquoise sweater (also from eBay) and bright blue trousers for contrast.”

“I have a couple of thrifted blazers and the faux fur coat I bought in Scotland, but I’ve shared all those pieces in previous Thrifty Six collabs… I wanted to challenge myself to style this secondhand coat instead, which was my mom’s when she was a kid! I paired it with my thrifted jumpsuit, thrifted belt, and vintage clip-on earrings. This outfit is very “out there” for my usual taste but it somehow felt quite stylish and on-trend.”

This is my Autumn statement…
 …and what a statement it is!
 Scarlet red faux fur can’t fail to turn heads.
 Autumn outerwear is October’s Thrifty Six theme…
 …not sure this meets the brief but it’s what I’ll be rocking this Autumn!

“The gorgeous leopard print trench coat that I bought last winter on Vinted. And that I never had worn because it was too cold in the winter. And as soon as the sun starts to shine in spring, I wear my denim jacket with leopard print scarf. I only had worn it twice this autumn, so I kind of forgot about it. But it is such a treasure, I adore this coat!”

I found this classic Talbots trench coat at my local Salvation Army many years ago. I think I paid $18 for it and it has proven to be such a versatile coat for both fall and spring. The light taupe color goes with everything and the loose fit makes it work if I gain or lose 25 pounds! It isn’t the most exciting coat, but it is perfect for statement dresses like this newly thrifted Zara dress that I have been dying to share!
