Spring Style Staples 2024: Thrifted Edition

April 1, 2024

From florals to denim to pops of red, from brooches to clogs, there are lots of spring trends to consider when adding to your warming-up-weather wardrobe this year. But why buy new when many “staple” items—pieces that will put you right in the sweet spot of style this season—are available secondhand? Nicole McConnell, owner of secondhand boutique Woven, is always sourcing with the latest trends in mind, and her shop is bursting with fab finds that will surely put a spring in your wardrobe. Below, our top picks from her East Vancouver-based business; to purchase, visit her at 2244 East Hastings or DM her on Instagram @shop.woven (open hours are listed there, too). Note: prices are negotiable (within reason)! —Noa Nichol
