Abstract

All those compliments about the Levi's we found at the local flea market weren't for nothing—new data reveals that people who shop second hand are likely to be more stylish. Yep, that means opting for second hand clothing is not only better for the planet (bye bye, fast fashion), but it also justifies the satisfying humble brag of telling someone that the jacket they just complimented was $5 from Vinnies. The study, shared via The Conversation was conducted by two researchers at The University of Tasmania, Louise Grimmer and Martin Grimmer, who found that in the 2020-21 financial year, 72 per cent of Australians purchased at least one item of second-hand clothes.
