4 Back to School Second-Hand Must-Haves for 2022 (and Cases to Match!)
Jul 29, 2022
Ok, it's 2022. That means buying brand new, cookie-cutter clothes off the rack is OUT, and finding yourself some unique, custom-curated outfits from your favorite consignment store is IN.
But, just because your clothes are second-hand doesn't mean your phone cases have to be. We all have different shoes to perfect every outfit: why let a bland phone case ruin your mirror selfie?
Here are some thrifty back-to-school finds and the cutest phone cases to go with them.
1. Vintage Denim
By now, we all know that high-waisted mom jeans are on trend, and so are baggy bell bottoms. The great thing about fashion is that it's cyclical: what goes out of style comes back in, and until it comes back in, it ends up at the thrift store. So, consignment stores are the best place to get these old-turned-new denim styles.
Pair your new jeans with this gorgeous blue and pink hued Land & Sea Marble Swirl iPhone Case case. The blue tones complement vintage denim, and the pink adds a splash of color to inspire your accessory choices.
2. Vintage Bags
Something you wear to school every day for 180 days should be a little more unique to you than your average sporty backpack. It doesn't even have to be a backpack—let the consignment spirits guide you through the forgotten treasure troves! You can find well-loved leather messenger bags, totes, purses, etc., that fit your style and budget.
Anyone who cares about their daily backpack has a little bit of “artsy” in them. Let your love of art shine with this delicately designed Van Gogh Case. This gorgeous teal color pairs great with a cognac-colored messenger bag and a “dark academia” vibe.
3. Vintage Sunglasses
Oversized sunglasses have taken a backseat to newer trends like the Micro Cat-Eye sunglasses. This retro design originated in the 1920s and has cycled back every few decades. If you're lucky, you'll find a pair of these fashion statement pieces in your local thrift store (if someone else hasn't gotten to them first!).
An elegant and fiercely feminine frame like the Cat-Eye deserves a phone case that is equally fierce and feminine.
This beautiful We're All Human case showcases the delicate femininity of the female facial silhouette and pairs wonderfully with any vintage sunglasses of your choice.
4. Vintage Accessories
Whether it’s a one-of-a-kind piece of costume jewelry, a cute vintage fanny pack or a mint Swatch watch from the ‘80s, the perfect accessory can make or break an outfit. This metallic All Smiles | Smiley Face Sticker Case has silver and gold metallic flecks to complement any vintage jewelry selection, a fun retro ravey vibe, and a variety of denim and pastel colors that will pair with almost any vintage accessory. Pair your handpicked vintage accessories with this eye-catching All Smiles | Smiley Face Sticker Case.
Consignment stores are a blessing to those who value fashion and showcasing our flair but don't value breaking the bank. Casely cases also let you keep your flair at an affordable price point. So, get that extra case that matches your new vintage bag. You deserve it.
