Are you in search of ways to slow down fast fashion? One way is to choose ethical shopping brands. The other method, which is pretty easier, is by shopping through online consignment stores. It gives well-made clothes a new life, allowing consumers to recycle, reuse and try something new in style. Sweet moves.
From casual wear to luxury items, we’ve rounded up a few of the leading platforms to help you get started on your consignment journey. And by the way, in case you didn’t know, consignment involves the sale of products through a third party (you can thank us later).
First up, we have the store named THE REAL REAL. Arguably the most recognizable name in the consignment business, The Real Real is a leader in luxury resale online. One of the most trusted in the business, the platform is known for curating high-quality, gently used luxury fashion.
Another consignment store is the DEPOP. This store is tailor-made for folks who have funkier taste and are always on the search for eclectic accents. It is a platform for secondhand and vintage items with an edge. You can buy, or even sell, and discover their stylish pieces through their app.
Next, we have TRADESY. Tradesy offers more fashion-forward items, with top designer brands ranging from Tom Ford to Gucci to Chanel, so it is a lot like shopping in the closets of top fashionistas.
Finally, there’s thredup. As an online thrift store and consignment shop, ThredUp allows you to shop items for as little as $3. They also have a wide range of brands spanning from Uniqlo to Gucci, so you have a diverse set of options.
If you want to stick to the classic shopping method, instead of the online route, you can as well check out Clover in Richmond, Virginia. Besides, it has a great selection, range of sizes, and great prices, and the interior styling is also really great.
