In a bid to shop more sustainably, eBay has emerged as a fashion destination in its own right. While you can still find hidden gems from its traditional peer-to-peer reselling platform, the retailer is also bringing the outlet experience to the comfort of your own home.
Cast aside all preconceived notions of these traditional jumble sales, eBay is putting new items from over 200 brands at your fingertips. In its Brand Outlet, you will find the likes of River Island, Puma, Timberland, Joules, Superdry and more to help you make considered, cost-saving purchases with discounts of up to 70 per cent.
Creating a capsule wardrobe is one way to shop in a more considered and environmentally-conscious way. Fashion is the second most polluting industry after oil, and accounts for 10 per cent of global CO2 emissions – but this doesn’t need to be the case. By streamlining your wardrobe to staple pieces like a cosy winter coat, a timeless pair of fitted jeans and some trusty Chelsea boots, you will not only create the building blocks to endless styling opportunities but it will save you precious minutes in your morning routine.
Instead of agonising over outfits and leaving a floordrobe in your wake, you will be able to decisively pair the elements together whether you are heading to work, on a night out or to a formal occasion.
Opt for quality, long-lasting pieces in trend proof designs that will stand the test of time. Neutral colour palettes like navy, black and grey will always goes down a treat and help you create the foundation where playful pops of colour can be easily mixed and matched for hassle-free dressing.
