When it comes to sustainable fashion, one quick and easy way to refresh your wardrobe is through second-hand fashion. It's cheap, often in brilliant condition, and there are so many places to find it (if you know where to look!)

Here at ebloggers, we like to celebrate being part of the second-hand fashion space. We sell pre-loved clothes from over 200+ VIBs (that's Very Important Bloggers) on our site, ranging from high street to high end. And the best part? Many of the items are in perfect condition, with style inspo from some of the best fashion influencers!

Best second-hand fashion sites for UK

When it comes to shopping for second-hand clothing, these sites are our top picks:

ASOS Vintage - Vintage pieces from individual sellers

Beyond Retro - Retro and re-made garments

Cudoni - Luxury resale site for members only

Frockery - Retro dresses and vintage items

ebloggers - Shop influencers' pre-loved clothes, bags, shoes, and beauty

ebloggers Luxury - Luxury and designer picks from style influencers

Edit Second Hand - Hand chosen second-hand designer find 

The Dresser - Couture and vintage designer shop

Hardly Ever Worn It - Independent site selling almost new designer items

Loopster - Second-hand children's clothing

Oxfam - Online charity shopping

Vide Dressing - Portal for designer and luxury pre-worn fashion

 

We love all of these sites because they are easy to navigate and sort through. In fact, they may make second-hand shopping even easier than if they were stores! Alongside that, they are all creating a more circular economy by increasing the popularity of second-hand clothing, and reducing the amount of clothes that go to landfill each year.

Finally, if you're looking to support charity when shopping for second-hand, stick to ebloggers, where a percentage of every sale (between 5-100%) goes to charity, or sites like Oxfam, with all the proceeds going to charitable causes.

 

Best second-hand fashion apps for UK

If you prefer second-hand shopping direct from your phone, these apps are a must:

eBay - Large auction site selling all types of fashion

ebloggers - Shop influencers' pre-loved clothes, bags, shoes, and beauty

Vestiaire Collective - Big resales site for luxury brands

Vinted - Online marketplace for second-hand clothes

 

We recommend downloading all of these, and spending time scrolling through each until you find the perfect pieces to revamp your wardrobe with!

 

Top tips for shopping for second-hand fashion

Finally, if you're new to shopping second-hand, here are a few tips to help you get started:

- Look for composition of the item - this will tell you what it's made from, and how to best look after it (for example, washing at a low temperature).
- Check whether the item is Brand New or not - on ebloggers, we put a special pink 'Brand New' tag on items that are still new with tags. 
- Set yourself a budget - you'll be surprised at how far it goes compared to buying new items
- When you get your pre-loved pieces, tailor them to your body shape and style! Add a belt or some jewellery, or even get them altered to really suit you.
- And finally, if you're saying goodbye to items in your wardrobe, try reselling them too! This reduces the number of clothes going to landfill. If you're an influencer, you can also start selling through ebloggers!
