Did you know that 73% of used clothes are sent to landfill or incinerated? One man’s ‘trash’ is another man’s treasure and second-hand clothing is no exception. We love browsing preloved garms and bagging a bargain. Here are a few outlets we frequent.
‘Where fashion lives on’. Loopster sells both women’s and children’s clothing; the latter is available as a bundle by the ‘Kids Kilo’. 12 of this season’s pieces for your little one for just £20.
Hundreds of items are added every day to the Thrift+ platform, with everything from Boden to Burberry. You’ll find clothing for women, men, and an area especially for high-end designer brands. As a seller, half the profits are given to a charity of your choice (from an extensive list). Bingo.
Not only does Re-fashion have a wide variety of pieces, it also encourages upcycling with its ‘Rag Bags’. These £8.50, 2kg bags contain items that cannot be sold on due to minor defects. Re-use and recycle as you wish.
One Scoop Store
A store of carefully curated gems, One Scoop Store is home to labels including Joseph, Isabel Marant and Zara. You’re guaranteed to find a gem without breaking your bank balance.
One of the first luxury resale sites, and still one of the best. This web-only shop is home to a broad range of labels and allows you to browse weekly ‘edits’ and search for trends. There’s also a lifestyle section full of homewares and furniture.
It’s time to say goodbye fast fashion, hello sustainable style. Who’s with us?
