17 second-shopping hacks our Fashion Director swears by

From Cosmopolitan

There’s no better time to discover your love for second hand clothing than in, the aptly named, Second Hand September. But hey, second-hand/vintage/pre-loved – whatever you want to call it, there are so many benefits to buying clothes that have already been worn by someone else.
