deep dive: boho styles

It’s time for another deep dive! With festival season just about to start, we thought we’d introduce you to a world of endless creativity and self-expression with our spotlight on fashion’s most free-spirited styles! At Uptown Cheapskate, we’re head over heels for the vibrant and eclectic Boho style, along with its fabulous cousins. Here’s why we believe your wardrobe is begging for a dash of peace, love, and all things Boho – and trust us, it’s a journey you’ll want to embark on!

Embrace your inner free spirit with Boho chic – a style that dances to the beat of its own drum, echoing the psychedelic vibes of the ’60s and ’70s. It’s more than just fashion; it’s a rebellion against the conventional, a badge of peace, and a harmony with nature. Crafting your Boho look is a breeze with essentials like bell bottoms, maxi dresses, paisley prints, tie-dyes, and layers upon layers of jewelry. Whether you opt for bold colors or earthy tones, this style is your canvas to paint with freedom.

Saddle up for an adventure! It’s a style that perfectly captures the essence of the rugged outdoors, from the whispering desert canyons to the sparkling coastal waves. Every element of this look is pure Americana, with a deep-rooted connection to the wild, free-roaming spirit of the West. Be sure to deck out your wardrobe with denim, prairie dresses, peasant blouses, button-ups, belts with big buckles, and bandanas. Of course, no outfit would be complete without a cowboy hat and boots! Don’t shy away from adding splashes of color to your natural palette – it’s all about expressing your love for free-roaming adventures!

Step into a nostalgic scene right out of a Laura Ingalls Wilder novel with the charming Prairie style. A delightful mix of Boho, cottagecore, and Western, this style brings its unique essence to the forefront. Imagine yourself lounging on a porch, lemonade in hand, surrounded by sunflower fields and the gentle summer breeze. Whether you’re exploring a local farmer’s market or attending a folk concert, this easy-going style is both comfortable and chic! Look for puff sleeve blouses, lace-up boots, free-flowing dresses or skirts, cotton or linen pants, and straw hats. Look for elements adorned with calico, florals, lace, toile, and gingham in soft, natural colors.

It’s quiz time! What festival vibes do you give off? Are you a western cowgirl, a peace-loving hippie, or meant to explore the open prairie? Click the link above to find out!

deep dive: eco-friendly styles

Welcome to our deep dive into eco-friendly and sustainable fashion! These trending styles prioritize nature, environmentally friendly brands, clothing, and conservation. At Uptown Cheapskate, we believe that choosing resale is one way we can help save the environment. Let’s explore why these eco-friendly styles are so popular!

This style is perfect for those who love outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, or rock climbing. It is practical, comfortable, and interchangeable depending on the weather. Look for muted color palettes that complement your earthy activities. You can choose from a variety of clothing such as hiking boots, sneakers, cotton t-shirts, tank tops, flannel, sweatshirts, puffy coats and vests, comfortable jeans, shorts, cargo pants, baseball caps, bucket hats, backpacks, and cross-body bags.

This style is all about being mindful of the planet and having less. Capsule wardrobes consist of essentials that are versatile and last for multiple seasons. The color palettes for this style are typically muted and neutral colors, but you can add some bright tones to the mix too! Try looking for natural fabrics such as linen, cotton, hemp, and bamboo for a more sustainable wardrobe.

Despite its name, this style is all about the love of the European and Mediterranean coastlines, as well as the rich life, culture, and food found there! Think breezy styles with flowy organic white cotton and linen, sundresses, espadrilles, straw sunhats, and woven handbags. You can look for pops of bright red, blue, and green, as well as gingham, pinstripes, florals, and cute food prints, for a fun and vibrant look.

Summer never ends with this style! Think of beachy island and vacation vibes in bright and pastel colors. You can try crochet halter tops, bead and shell jewelry, tropical prints, save the turtles and other marine life on tees and sweatshirts, swimwear, flowy dresses, sandals, and comfy shorts! Although this style is typically saved for coastal, summer, and vacation outfits, don’t be afraid to incorporate this laid-back style into your year-round wardrobe.

Living an eco-friendly lifestyle involves making sustainable choices. Uptown Cheapskate is a store that buys and sells gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories. We strongly believe that by choosing secondhand clothing or shopping from environmentally friendly brands, you can help reduce waste and support sustainable practices. Regardless of your style, be it granola, minimalist, tomato girl, coconut girl, or a mix of everything, there are plenty of eco-friendly fashion options available that can help you look and feel your best while also contributing to a healthier planet.

wardrobe aesthetics

Do you want a new wardrobe? Are you looking to add to or redefine your style? Try shopping with us at Uptown Cheapskate. We have thousands of items at a fraction of the cost of department stores! We’re here to help you figure out what you want aesthetically and to help you look fabulous for less!

classic

There’s a reason it’s timeless. Classic is all about that effortless look. It seems to never go out of style and is super easy to keep pieces for long periods of time. Neutral and solid colors with minimal prints such as beige, creams, and greys, as well as black and white are the standard. Jewelry is usually dainty or simplistic. Remember simple and classic is never boring if you know how to work it!

cottagecore

Do you love frills and gardens? If so, cottagecore may be for you! This simple and feminine aesthetic is meant to look as if you’re walking through a blooming meadow and heading into your tiny country house for tea. Prairie dresses, peasant blouses, shirred tops with puffy sleeves, floral prints, dreamy pastel color palettes, ruffles, and lace make up the beautiful dream-like quality of this style.

streetwear

Streetwear is just how it sounds, it’s meant for the streets whether you’re just going to the corner shop, hanging out with friends, walking the dog, or skateboarding. It’s the best of comfort and style! It’s laid back but is still thoughtful when it’s put together. This aesthetic contains hoodies, sneakers, tees, sweats, athletic wear, and jeans preferably straight-leg. This is a very versatile style that always looks good paired with a hat and shades.

hippie or boho

Hey there flower child! This style is carefree with peace and love! This style hasn’t really changed much with its tracing of psychedelic origins from the 60s and 70s. Think of tie-dyes, natural and bright color palettes, paisley prints, flare or bell bottom jeans, crochet and hand-knitted items, boots, fringe, and suede, as well as jewelry stacked and full of statement pieces. A hint is the more vintage looking the better!

academia

Do you love libraries, museums, books, and the arts? This style is all about elegance and looking fresh out of a classroom. You won’t go wrong in plaids, neutral or muted colors, berets, khaki pants, sweater vests, tweeds, and collared blouses. Pair with velvet hair ribbons, loafers, boots, and simple but chunky jewelry. Don’t forget the messenger bag to carry all your important studies!

goth

Are you a child of darkness? This is all about finding the beauty in the absence of color. Black is your best friend with this aesthetic but super dark colors of blue, red, purple, and green can add a nice touch. Pair together things like crystal or silver jewelry, chains, chokers, lace, chunky or high-heeled boots, heavy metal band tees, and of course don’t forget the black eyeliner, polish, and lipstick!

Velvet is a classic material that will make any outfit look elegant and it has a soft and luxurious feel. Dresses are the most popular find because of the fabric’s gorgeous draping ability, but if you do find a top or bottom try adding a silk or satin piece in and use simple jewelry and strappy heels for that something extra!

One can never have enough plaid! It comes in different styles and colors and makes a statement when you walk into a room! Try a jacket or pants with a cream-colored top and chunky jewelry.

If you want something that’s edgy, modern, and futuristic all rolled into one look no further than faux leather. It’s making a big comeback in metallic shades! Try it in a jacket, leggings, a skirt, or a bag. Remember that this piece is the star of the show, so find other pieces that will help it shine in similar shades and colors!
