Thrift Inspiration, Benetton Way

Colours and Stripes in combination are everywhere, from Marc Jacob to Prada its a really vibrant trend for Summer 2011.

Marc by Marc Jacob

I bought my March edition of Elle on Wednesday and a free United Colours of Benetton Summer 2011 flyer came with it. Who better than Benetton on the High Street to regularly follow this trend, they have also been synonymous with all things bright and colourful

I love the bright jeans and skirts, my recently thrifted Versace jeans are a similar colour to the ones below

So I was pleased to find on Thursday at my local Sue Ryder charity shop this fine knit sweater by Benetton for only £2.95

I love all the colours in it and it will go with anything-I'm after some white jeans for summer so I'm sure it will go really well with them too.

Are you going to be in colourful stripes this Summer?

Dear Sharon, yet again you manage to find something perfect for this season. I love that Marc jumpsuit and the colours are gorgeous. Your interpretation is brilliant as ever. That will look great with your new jeans. Have a lovely weekend xx

It will be so cheerful and vacation-y with white jeans!

Ofelia said...

I'll be in colorful full skirts and sandals!

You are so talented in finding such steals - car booty season should be upon us soon. Can't wait to see what you find then

That Benetton is so much like the catwalk creations, you are so clever at finding things. I don't know about you but I rarely find Benetton in charity shops, maybe it's because they are classically styled pieces that people never tire of. xxx

Oh yes! I love stripes and I love color!

What an adorable jumper. I saw it and right away I was transported back to the 80s (in a good way), on a windy dorset beach flying kites in the sunshine! It's so summery but just warm enough for a British kinda summer ha ha!

Comtesse de ferveur said...

Great jumper! I have always loved Benetton. Will definitely rock out the stripes this summer. xxx

Right that's it, I'm off to scour the local charity shops! What an inspiration you are Sharon. (BTW want tickets for Frock Me on 13 Feb?)Cx

Great bargain to match one of the key seasons trends, I'm not sure if I suit stripes so might have to try a few items on to see. Have a lovely weekend! xx

You couldn't make this stuff up!! Thrift queen by osmosis!!

Penny Dreadful said...

What great colours, you'll also be able to tuck it in and wear it with a big swingy skirt in either red, blue or yellow, so it is going to be so versatile for you x

The Seeker said...

What a great find, my dear!!!!
I'm loving the idea of bright colours for S/S, despite I'm not ready yet to wear them, but I'm sure I will.

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend, dear

xoxo

Great find I love benetton I used to have a lot of pieces from them back in the 80's ~Oh summer is going to be bright ~Love Heather

Lenya said...

that top is soo cute!

Pearl Westwood said...

I love a bright stripe and picked up a lovely vintage dress which I am looking forwards to getting out!

Looking Fab in your forties said...

I can't believe you picked that up! I reckon people know their fashion in these shops and put the good stuff out when you come in! If I went to my local charity shops, I wouldn't find a thing remotely on trend!

I'm never so sure about stripes, but this is lovely, I especially like that the stripes are irregular.

Oh yes, I'm loving those soft stripe pieces by Marc. He is always so on point! Great look-4-less on the stripe top, you can easily pair those with a pair of navy blue sailor pants!

Caroline said...

Hi Sharon - loving the stripes. And the front cover of that Benetton booklet is SOOO 70s, it's got a real hippy chick vibe going on. Love it!
