I’ll be the first to admit I’m a Zara devotee. But the thrill of finding a one-of-a-kind vintage piece that is unique is far more exciting than scooping up another Zara top. Vintage shopping is one of my favorite pastimes—my earliest (and fondest) childhood memories involve scuffling through racks of musty old clothes at the local secondhand store with my mother. It’s a shopping ritual I wholly believe led to my enduring love affair with fashion.
So today I wanted to share some of my favorite online vintage stores where you can find charming, pre-loved pieces that you can guarantee no one else will be wearing. Not only does shopping secondhand maintain individualism, but it also offers affordable access to designer heritage brands, it’s cost-effective, it favors quality over quantity, and it encourages sustainability.
Scroll below to see my favorite online vintage shops that range from Zara prices to investment-worthy discount designer rates.
