I believe that everyone should be able to have fabulous style without breaking the bank. Personally, I love putting together groovy celeb outfits from my thrifty closet, as well as preloved and vintage garments!

Secondhand fashion is a wonderfully affordable way to fill your wardrobe with the looks you love, and it's also eco-friendly!

Unfortunately, many people continue to think that the laundered clothing donated to swaps, thrift stores, and charity shops is somehow dirtier and less hygienic than a “brand new” garment that has traveled through many different factories, hands, and machines worldwide without being washed even once.

Secondhand items that have been gently used by one or two people (and thoroughly cleaned before being resold) are usually much more hygienic than, for example, restaurant cutlery that, while washed often, has still been in multiple customers' mouths or hotel linens and towels that have touched the intimate areas of numerous guests, ew!

The next time you're coveting a celeb outfit, look no further than your own closet and your local secondhand shop - with a bit of imagination you'll be able to put together something similar for next to nothing!

All of the 'copycat' looks below were put together from items I already had in my closet and a new-to-me purchase from the thrift shop.

In this case, you get what you pay for. That suit needs to be tailored, it's too boxy and those boots are terrible with it.

It had to cost something originally. Just because you had it in your closet already doesn't mean it was free.

About the blocked comment, Is not sustainable to throw clothes away while they still having a purpose and can be used. Is not sustainable to pay much for something that is more a price tag than something useful to you. Thrift shops are not crumbs for the poor. This is capitalism brainwashing giving status to things that shouldn't be used as status quo. If you like something, and is cheap, and suits your wish, and if you don't mind repurposing something that would go to become waste despite being totally useful, the only difference from a regular shop and a used clothes one is the price and your capability of purchasing something someone gave a purpose before. Consumerism is not an obligation despite this being bombed to you all the time and your life becoming a tool for it more than your own.
