As the winter chill makes way for the warmth of spring, it is time to give your wardrobe a breath of fresh air. Let’s talk about transitioning your wardrobe from the chilly days of winter to the bright, cheerful season of spring—all while being kind to both your wallet and the planet.  

Here is how you can find new-to-you spring essentials at your local Deseret Industries (DI) thrift store and give your winter clothes a second life by donating them back. Let’s make it simple, sustainable, and, most importantly, fun!

Goodbye Winter Bulky Coats, Hello Light Jackets 

Wave goodbye to the bulky coats of winter and welcome the delightful light jackets. Keep an eye out for classic denim, versatile utility jackets, or fashionable windbreakers to seamlessly shift your style from the cozy comforts of winter to the fresh flair of spring.

Layering with Light Sweaters 

Spring can have unpredictable weather, so layering is key! Search for light sweaters or cardigans that can easily be thrown on over your spring outfits. Go for pastel shades or neutrals to maintain a springtime vibe while staying cozy on cooler days.

Versatile Denim

Denim truly stands the test of time and effortlessly transitions through the seasons. Look for versatile denim items like jeans, jackets, or skirts on your next thrift store trip. A comfortable pair of denim jeans with a breezy spring shirt is the perfect ensemble for anyone looking to achieve a laid-back yet stylish vibe for those sunny spring days.

Donate Your Winter Clothes and Make a Difference 

As you refresh your wardrobe for the new season, consider the joy of giving. Round up winter wear or other clothes or shoes in your closet that are still in good condition to donate to DI. Not only will you make space for new thrifting finds, but you will contribute to a more sustainable fashion cycle and help. 

Embrace the practicality of sustainable fashion without compromising on style or budget. Visit your local DI store, where every piece tells a story waiting to be discovered. Consider a fashion journey that elevates your style and contributes to a sustainable future. So, grab a friend, hit your local DI store, and embark on a fashion adventure that is good for your style and the planet. Happy thrifting!
