Second-hand clothes can come in a lot of different forms; whether you’re looking online, in a charity shop, in a vintage store, or even in an app, everyone seems to be interested in the not-so-new for a variety of reasons. If you are someone who doesn’t feel comfortable with the idea of used clothes, read on and see if you don’t change your mind.


Buying clothes new all the time, unless they are made with sustainable fabrics can often lead to waste. As of 2016, 50% of Americans were still throwing away clothes in the garbage rather than donating them. Donating your clothes and buying second-hand makes sure that cycle ends.


There will always be one crazy trend that seems like it can only be accomplished with new clothing, but that is almost never the case. The fashion industry always recycles styles so why don’t you recycle the clothes to make it come full circle!

Clothing Swap

A great way to start off your journey into second-hand clothing is by organizing a clothing swap with your friends. Have everyone bring their old clothes together and have a free shopping spree! That way you will know where the clothes come from.
