First of all, only get into second hand stores when you have time. If you’re in a hurry you might not be careful what you choose.

Check the price-quality balance, and don’t buy something just because it’s cheap, if you don’t need it then or it doesn’t fit.Focus on more distinctive clothes that you can’t find anywhere else. As for basic clothes, you can find them in almost any store and these are the ones you wear most often, so you should feel comfortable in them and they should be of good quality.

The diffrence between second-hand clothes and vintage clothes

vintage clothes
Vintage clothes are also second-hand clothes , but not always.
Vintage clothes can be also garments you bought long ago, even your high school uniform.
In other words, clothes that are now out of fashion or correspond to an older style of dressing, and once upon a time they were a popular trend.

Vintage clothes are grandparents’ clothes too, but you know who they were worn by and certainly if they belonged to a loved one, they have positive energy.

Remember that any coat that you resonate with and feel comfortable in is right for you and looks good on you.
