Thrift Fashion X Thrifting in Lagos : What to wear..

Thrifting is shopping through clutters of grades of second-hand clothing items usually at a really cheap price.

All through my university days, thrifting was a major part of my wardrobe diaries; my school was located close to a major thrift market and we had vendors bring thrift items to the hostel. I went thrifting the other day and at the market, this post idea just popped in. I saw some girls wearing trousers and because of that, they couldn’t try out some clothes. I used to make that mistake in the past, I love you guys so I don’t want you to make the same mistake. I don’t know of any physical thrift store in Lagos so, for now, we do road side and online thrifting ( mostly roadside) so you have to dress the part.

The best outfit to wear to a thrift market is a light long sleeveless gown. With this you can try on trousers, tops and even jumpsuits; the length protects your private area especially when you have to try those jeans on the road side.



Ps. This outfit is just packaging, when I was going to the market I ditched the accessories, jellies, and scarf, can’t be going there looking all expensive LOL.

PPs. I thrifted for my fans lol, my loyal and able followers. I’ll be posting the pictures on my IG, follow me so you don’t miss out @theblackwriter

  1. Some people wear leggings or jeggings to this is also okay because they cling to the skin so you can easily wear stuff over them. These are helpful tips asides not dressing expensive also bring your A-Game when it comes to bargaining and always check out the items you pick thoroughly before paying for them. I’m looking forward to the stuff you’ve thrifted for us. Thanks in advance 😀😀

    1. leggings doesn’t work for me. once I tried a jeans on my leggings it was too tight, I bought it with the hopes of giving it to my friend. when i got back home and tried it without the leggings, it was my perfect fit. yes oh bargain like your life depends on it. hahahahaha stay tuned, you’ll see them.
