Never underestimate the power of a thrifty find.

This New Yorker had me stopped in my tracks. Her flowing faux leather skirt had me in awe, come to find out it was thrifted.

Digging and sifting through racks on racks of clothes is worth the search when you land a treasure like this one. Style a dramatic piece like this with more simple ones to create a balance. Tie a graphic tee at the waist to add some dimension and layer over a denim jacket. The distressing and patchwork on the jacket gives the outfit a signature street style feel, making you the ultimate cool girl.
