Second-hand shopping is fun, hunting for that special designer item you love allows you to put together a unique wardrobe, with good-quality clothes and accessories, and some vintage ones that only you have, also, with so many online second-hand shops, you have the opportunity to scour shops from all over the world and find some amazing luxury pieces at affordable prices. We've seen on the latest catwalks during the Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan and Berlin that the '80s and '90s fashion is very much on-trend, so why not look for some original vintage clothes?
Here are my favourite and chicest addresses to buy pre-owned clothes online:
