To help you get the most out of the fashion swap, the team at Look magazine have come up with their top tips to ensure you leave with a stylish new wardrobe!
A classic designer piece will last you a lifetime – avoid faddish trends and watch out for luxe fabrics like leather, silk and cashmere. Keep your eye out for good basics that never date.
Look out for spring/summer’s biggest colours – tangerine and bright blue – you can re-work pieces from this season. And have patience! Finding what you’re after takes time, but it’ll be worth it!
Look out for anything in parachute silk – trousers, jumpsuits and utility style dresses are all key for spring’s grown up sporty look. Suede fringed accessories are also worth grabbing hold of.
Get set for a proper rummage! Always keep an open mind, swapping is a great time to try a new look you wouldn’t usually pay for and you can be experimental without denting your bank balance.
For trying on at the event always wear clothing that’s easy to slip on and off, boots and a jumper dress are perfect (like Lilly!), there’s nothing worse than trying to navigate a pair of skinnies!
A girl can never have too many accessories, make a beeline for the bags, belts and vintage look scarves, they’ll go a long way – true fashion multi taskers!
Don’t panic and think carefully about what you need. A bargain that you only wear once is not good value! Go for basics that won’t date e.g. A check shirt, boyfriend blazer or even a LBD
