Shining a light on secondhand summer style

Shining a light on secondhand summer style

The fashion forward are thinking ahead, not only about what’s on-trend this summer, but also about making more sustainable and ethical purchase decisions.

Secondhand is not just for seasoned thrifters; it is swiftly becoming the first choice for many of us whose go-to has been hitting the high street first.


What has been well-known among high-street-charity-shop rummagers for many years, and that many of us are discovering, is that the secondhand market is chock-full of diverse, high-quality, nearly-new - and vintage - garments to suit every taste.

The secondhand market offers size inclusivity as well as a range of styles. Search our own online shop for plus sizes and feel confident that every garment has been thoroughly assessed for quality and condition.

Making the choice to support a local charity makes your money go further too; your new-preloved look even helps to save lives, making secondhand fashion the ethical choice for the conscious consumer.


To help our online shoppers find a style that suits them, we offer accurate product descriptions and photography with each garment listed falling into a minimum of our top silver and gold label categorisation, which ensures their quality.

But shopping online isn’t the same as popping into a changing room, which is a plus if the prospect of public changing is one of the less enjoyable aspects of shopping!

A fun way to put together your own unique summer online look is by assembling garments, shoes and accessories using screenshots. Simply crop your shots and pop them together to get a sense of the look you are going for.

We compiled this summer outfit which features a versatile Hollister denim jacket, a Lindy-bop cotton floral frock, white M&S ankle-sling heels, a corresponding vibrant Sarah Miller Clutch, plus real silver starfish necklace for a fraction of what the same outfit would cost new. In fact, quite a few of the garments we sell still sport their original swing labels!

Have a go! And share your uniquely curated looks with #FoundAtDAAT! We’d love to see how your creativity plays out on Instagram. And don’t forget, with every purchase you are giving a new lease of life to a preloved garment and making an important difference to people and planet. Affordable ethical clothing is available in as many styles as there are tastes.
