Thrift shopping is my favorite way to get new clothing. Giving new life to piece of clothing that still has years of wear left in it is a great way to update your closet while staying sustainable. One great way to start secondhand shopping is with some of the many apps, websites and instagram shops out there. Online thrifting is an especially great way to shop if you don’t have access to a car or live in an area without many good thrift stores. I especially love Poshmark and Depop.
However, shopping online or with an app presents a major problem for many of us: you can’t try the clothing on! And with many apps and sites, you can’t return or exchange items. As a seasoned online thrifter, I’ve rounded up some tips for how to find great pieces that will fit you well even if you can’t try them on.
