Next time you’re having a negative body image day, try carving out time for fashion. Finding clothes you feel confident in can get your day started off on the right foot. And, finding a new ‘fit’ doesn’t have to break the bank.
Here are some ways you can have a closet full of clothes that can boost your body confidence (while also loving the planet).
Tip #1: Clean out your closet.
Finding an outfit shouldn’t feel like a chore; it should feel exciting! There is no reason to have clothes in your closet that no longer fit or don’t make you feel confident!
Like seriously…why have clothes that make you feel bad taking up space when you could have clothes that make you feel amazing?
Take the time to go through your closet. Find the clothes that no longer make you feel confident and comfortable, and get rid of it!
Tip #2: Give your old clothes a new home.
There are a few things you can do with the clothing you no longer need. One way to find your old clothes a new home is to donate them.
You can do some research to find a donation center that resonates with you. This can make for a very heartwarming experience.
Another way to get rid of these clothes is to sell them! You can do this by taking them to an exchange store. A great local one is Runway. Runway will exchange your clothes for cash or in-store credit.
You can also sell your clothes online through sites like Poshmark, Curtsy, or Depop. All you have to do is take a picture of your clothing item, add a description (size, brand, color, etc), and post it!
Once someone buys it, the site sends you a shipping label and you just package it and drop it off at the post office. You can even take packages to the post office on campus!
Tip #3: Revamp your wardrobe.
Finding a new wardrobe doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive! Clothing exchange places are a great way to not only sell clothes, but also to shop.
Runway has a great variety of brands and sizes for a fraction of the cost. It is also super convenient to be able to try things on rather than buying them online and hoping they look good when they come in.
Additionally, if you choose to shop online, selling sites (Poshmark, Curtsey, and Depop) have filters where you can narrow your search to specific sizes and brands, so it makes finding clothes you already know you like very easy.
