If you’re looking to start shopping more sustainably, vintage and secondhand fashion is the perfect place to start.

Not only is it environmentally friendly and offers a second life to beautiful clothes, but each garment comes with an exciting history and a story of a life well-lived before you found it. Chosen well, vintage pieces can be great investments that last a lifetime too.

As vintage lovers ourselves, we know how time consuming it can be to scour through the rails looking for the best pieces. However the UK lockdown has meant that many vintage businesses have had to move online, so the pick is better than ever.
