For a long time, much of the joy of shopping second-hand clothing was simply the thrill of finding one-of-a-kind pieces you loved, discovering vintage gems, and enjoying the experience alongside the close friends you shopped with.
It was also a much more affordable way to fill your wardrobe with pieces that caught your eye.
Now, while these benefits still prevail, there’s a new and very significant reason more people are moving towards shopping used clothing stores.
And that’s climate change.
As one of the biggest contributors to environmental damage, as well as significant issues regarding human rights, the fashion industry needs to take urgent action to reduce its devastating impact on people and the planet.
But unfortunately, this need is often falling on deaf ears within the industry as many brands make little effort to improve their practices, seeing profit as more important than ethics and sustainability.
So instead of continuing to contribute to this damage by purchasing new fashion, many fashion-lovers are making a steady move towards second-hand clothing.
Some using it as their main resource when it comes to adding ‘new’ pieces to their wardrobe.
And with the change of times there are now hundreds of second-hand clothing stores available online.
But finding the ones that suit your style and your budget or that help you shop closer to home can be very difficult and often seems too much trouble.
This is the very reason I decided to add used clothing stores to With Bogart: to help you find the best used clothing online, find the stores that work for you, the stores you enjoy.
I went searching for used and vintage clothing stores, luxury consignment, and op shops offering valuable circular and sustainable fashion.
And not just valuable according to price, but stores that share useful, wearable, and enjoyable fashion for all shoppers no matter their style.
Whether you’re a lover of romantic lace vintage dresses, 70s style, punk-rock pieces, or minimalist, timeless fashion you’ll find stores offering what you need and want.
There are now over 200 second-hand clothing and luxury consignment stores available to shop on With Bogart.
These stores are organised by their price range, the styles they offer and their location so finding the ones that work for you is so much easier.
Below you’ll find my selection of 37 of the best used clothing stores from around the world available on With Bogart now.
So scroll down to find ones you love.
Keep reading to see how you're helping the planet when you shop circular fashion.
1. Extending a garments life cycle: Rather than your wardrobe filling with pieces you no longer wear circular fashion means passing those clothes forward, giving people the opportunity to buy second-hand rather than new.
2. Promotes sustainable fashion: When people ask you where you found that great wardrobe piece or when conversations pop up about this topic you can share your experience and encourage others to move towards more sustainable fashion choices.
3. Saving resources: Whether it’s the millions of litres of water used in manufacturing, the land that’s cleared for farming, or the pesticides damaging river ecosystems there are many valuable resources that could be protected if less new fashion was being produced.
4. Reduced manufacturing: This has so many benefits including reducing manufacturing waste, poisonous pesticides, water usage, energy consumption and so many more.
5. Lessening the demand for fast fashion: So many thrift stores share brands such as M.N.G, Zara, Topshop and ASOS. So instead of buying these fast fashion pieces new, you can grab the ones appearing on the slow fashion scene.
6. Reduce landfill: One person’s rubbish is often another person’s treasure, and this is how it is in the world of second-hand clothing. We all tire at some stage with pieces in our wardrobe, but when that’s new to someone else its attraction is reborn!
7. The positive feeling you get: This may sound insignificant, but there's also a personal benefit with shopping used clothing stores and that is you're left with a positive feeling of not only supporting circular fashion but lessening the negative impact your wardrobe has on the planet.
Now scroll down to start discovering some of the best places to shop circular second-hand clothing online.
And make sure you save these stores to your Favourites list on With Bogart so you can find them easily time and time again.
