Summer style 101

Your summer calendar is full – Concert tickets purchased, wedding RSVPs submitted, road trips planned and time off work scheduled. Now, the big question: What are you going to wear? Goodwill of Central Iowa stores have a massive variety of high quality and on-trend clothing at unbeatable price points. Shop one of our 18 Central Iowa stores and get ready for your most stylish summer ever!


Festival and concert season is in full swing and our stores have the unique pieces you need to stand out from the a crowd.

A romper or dress in a vibrant print looks great and keeps you cool during those long days in the sun. This vintage dress/shorts piece is truly fabulous! We love adding quirky accessories for a unique statement look.



Road trip dressing 101: It’s all about layering.  

Stopping to scope out roadside attractions means you’ll be in and out of car air conditioning. Bring a light sweater or jacket you can easily remove or add on so you’ll be comfortable no matter the temp.

Our stores have plenty of tote bags which are essential for keeping everything you need in one place (snacks, reading materials, snacks). We like how summery this woven one looks.



August brings the Iowa State Fair – make sure you’re ready! Our pricing allows you to experiment with channeling your inner cowgirl without going whole hog.

Pick a pair of fun boots to pair with a double denim look and hit the fair in style!



We love weddings, but we don’t love the idea of spending a small fortune to attend. Skip the mall and get your look for less at Goodwill. Because they don’t get reworn frequently, we frequently receive special occasion dresses that are in like new condition.

Our everyday inventory includes options that range from black tie to casual attire and everything in between.


We hope this inspires you to get out and thrift your summer looks for less. Our stores receive new inventory each day, so there’s always something new to discover. Any time you shop our stores, be sure to share with us on social media. Share on Facebook or tag us (@dmgoodwill) on Instagram
