Need an Outfit for a Theme Party?

Apr 2, 2008
Have you been invited to a theme party and you have nothing to wear? Theme parties have been popular for centuries, allowing us to play a unique character for a night. Popular theme party concepts include 1960's, 1970's, rock star, punk, movie stars, and super heroes. Looking for a costume to wear to this type of party can be challenging, especially if it is not around the Halloween season. Consider shopping for used clothing to complete your ideal theme party costume. Used clothing stores can offer you a variety of items, often in great condition, at affordable prices and from all time eras.

Before you start shopping, give some consideration into the type of clothing that would fit within the selected party theme. If you can, do an online search of that topic or theme to help stimulate your creativity, to get some visual photos and to find pictures that will stimulate your creativity. Print some pictures out to take with you and create a potential shopping list before you visit any stores. Many themes can be achieved with simple clothing items such as hats, scarves, jackets, shoes and belts when they are combined with basic clothing items such as a simple pants or shirts.

As you begin to shop for used clothing, search your local thrift stores, retail stores and consignment shops. You may want to use your local yellow pages and ask for references from people that you know to help you locate the best store with the largest selection of used clothing. When you get to the used clothing stores, ask the sales clerks for ideas, explain to them what your party theme is, and what ideas that you currently have. They should be able to lead you to several options that you can consider. Be creative and have fun when you are creating your theme look. Be sure to try everything on and look the items over for defects. Many simple things can be fixed, but try to notice any stains that will be unable to remove or any tears that are too large to fix before purchasing. You will be able to fine a great collection of used clothing items for your party and often for really great prices.

If you prefer to shop online, search for "used clothing" to view a comprehensive list of stores or items listed in an online action. If you are in a hurry, look at used clothing sites where people have listed their items for consignment. Shipping will generally be quicker when working with a consignment shop than an auction site, since you can purchase the item immediately instead of waiting for bidding to close. When you are shopping online, be sure to review the item description to determine the condition of the item. You can also read the seller's feedback to learn more about their customer experiences and the accuracy of their listings.

No matter which shopping method that you decide to use, used clothing can be a great choice to create your theme party look.
