Whoever said you have to sacrifice personal style when shopping on a budget?

Seasoned resale shoppers would tell you no statement could be further from the truth. And we agree. Secondhand has been the fashion industry’s best-kept secret for decades. But turning to the stylish archives of seasons past is no longer reserved for the runways—it’s becoming the new go-to for recreating all of the latest looks without burning through your budget. Here’s how it works.

Everyone from busy moms to style seekers are turning in their retail shopping habits for online resale sites like thredUP to find clothes they can live in at prices they can’t live without. If you only shopped secondhand for a year, you’d save a total of $1,350…not to mention several trips to the mall. What does that look like exactly? Let’s break it down and do the math.
