So, as more and more people try out online second-hand shopping for the first time, what do they need to know to get it right? Here are some top tips from the leading second-hand online clothing platform Thrift+ that will help you find your perfect thrift fit from your sofa.
We are listed as one of the charities that people can select when selling their second-hand clothes through the platform. The supporter can select Breast Cancer UK from a list of charities when they set up their account and chooses whether we receive 100% or 50% of proceeds when their items are sold.
When wanting to buy a new brand second-hand item, it can be hard to know if it will fit. Check sizing guides on the original website of your favourite brands to make sure what you buy fits like a glove.
When shopping second-hand, you can find designer brands for a fraction of the price. Stay open-minded and explore – you might find luxury brands you haven’t tried before. Head to the ‘Boutique’ on Thrift+ and sort by ‘low to high’.
Trends repeat – so you’ll likely find current season trends in vintage. Browse an online spring fashion guide for some inspiration and then head to your chosen second-hand fashion shop to recreate the look – at a fraction of the price.
Filter for natural materials like cashmere, wool, linen and cotton to ensure you’re finding clothes that will last. You might be able to sell them on yourself – keeping them in circulation for even longer. Plus, natural materials won’t release synthetic microfibres when washed.
Ensure your finds are the perfect fit with tailoring services.
Your thrifted clothes can do good. Try Thrift+ where you can support Breast Cancer UK!
If you find something you love the colour, material or pattern of but isn’t your style (or doesn’t fit) – get creative! Search Thrift Flips on Youtube, Instagram or TikTok to get inspired.
