A brand-new year is here and everyone is busy making resolutions to get fit, eat right and look good. Fitness resolutions can be heavy on your pockets with all the workout gear that you need to buy and an all-new diet with a good chunk of money spent on groceries. One of the ways to cut costs without compromising on quality is to shop for second-hand active wear. You can thrift for classy and sophisticated active wear from all the major brands without spending an exorbitant amount of money. Here are some basic must-have pieces that you must thrift for your wardrobe.
T-shirts and Shorts
You should be prioritising comfort while shopping for your workout gear. Good quality cotton activewear t-shirts absorb more perspiration from your body and don’t hold on to foul odours. At the same time, second-hand polyester shorts from name brands like Nike and Adidas will give you a lightweight feeling while working out. If you are feeling like showing off a bit, you can even opt for a vintage or retro t-shirt to wear to the gym.
Leggings and Sports Bras
Good quality leggings and a supportive sports bra must be one of the most favourite gym staples of the ladies. We all know sports bras are expensive but you can thrift Puma and Nike sports bras and Lululemon leggings at a much cheaper rate at thrift and second-hand stores. Leggings are the better option if you want to try your hands at Yoga or Pilates at the gym.
Sweatpants for the Win
Not everyone is comfortable showing off their curves at the gym. Sweatpants are the perfect options for those who don’t want to stand out in the gym and would like to sport a more modest look. Sweatpants can speed up the warming up of your muscles since they hold heat close to your body and thereby reduce the risk of injury while working out.

The thrill of finding a great one-of-a-kind second-hand outfit is incomparable.
Minimalism and sustainable shopping
The era of overconsumption is over. People prefer minimalist lifestyles and capsule wardrobes where you can create as many new looks as possible with fewer but higher quality clothing. If you own a couple of classic vintage and retro t-shirts as well as jeans, you can create countless styles out of them. People are mindful of what they buy and are concerned about the environment. So second-hand clothes perfectly fit the bill of futuristic fashion sensibilities where less is more.
Being the Trendsetter
Trends used to start on runways. But nowadays, many of the viral fashion trends start from Instagram or Tik Tok.

Many celebrities are now reselling their used clothes to appease their young fans who are conscious shoppers.
