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.

Thrifting has been disrupting the global fashion market for the past couple of years. Shopping for pre-loved clothes is no longer a fashion stigma but a statement against fast fashion and overconsumption. If you are a newbie when it comes to shopping for second hand clothes, chances are that you have barely any clue about selecting and styling thrifted clothes. Here are some tips to help you along the way!
Knot it up
One of the biggest dilemmas that you will face while buying second-hand t-shirts, vintage jerseys and vintage tops is the size of the outfit. Sometimes retro t-shirts can look baggy on you if you are a woman, especially if you like shopping from the men’s section. You can either embrace the baggy look by styling it with tighter jeans and shorts or make a knot at the front that will elevate your look to another level.
Dress it down
Vintage dresses are eternally classy but can look over the top if you are wearing them outside on a casual day. The trick is to style it with a retro jacket so that it looks like you are not overdressed for the day. Putting a classic retro Harley Davidson jacket or t-shirt over a sleeveless white vintage dress will give you that cool yet classy biker babe look.
A good belt saves the day
Styling your vintage dresses, girly jumpsuits and even rompers with a belt will make you look effortlessly stylish. When you use a belt, it will not accentuate your waist but improve the way the dress fits your body. Belts can even be used as a statement piece if your dress or blouse is too simple.
