It's #secondhandseptember and we've found some exciting ways to incorporate thrifted fashion into your life. But first, here are some serious facts to motivate you!
Now, here are five easy ways to embrace secondhand fashion:
1 Consider renting pieces for special occasions. A new rental site, Wardrobe, allows users to borrow luxurious pieces from the closets of celebrities and influencers.
2 Gift your outgrown favorites to people you love!
3 Host a virtual swap party on zoom! Or, broaden your swap search and trade via Rehash.
4 Commit to wearing secondhand as many days a week as you are comfortable.
And remember one of the best ways to lessen your impact is to look after your things. Wash clothing only when necessary. Mend holes and rips. Disguise stains with visible mending techniques. Commit to wearing new purchases at least 30 times. And most of all, love your clothes-- because loved clothes last.
