What is even more sustainable than shopping second hand? Easy: swapping or borrowing clothes. I have shown you items I have borrowed from my boyfriend quite often here on WHAT PIXIES WEAR already. That’s exactly right for this shirt you see in the pics too: It comes straight from my bf’s closet. I r-e-a-l-l-y like borrowing clothes!
Even some online clothes rental services have been made because more and more people like to borrow clothes instead of buying them. In Germany, there is Kleiderei for example, where you can rent clothes for a monthly flatrate. You can borrow up to four pieces at the same time and there is even the possibility of letting them fill your parcel for you by giving you a style consultation. There’s vintage, designer-coops and former go-to items of fashionistas at Kleiderei to choose from.
Unfortunately, given my size, there is not much there to choose from for me. But what about you, have you rented clothes from such a service yet? Maybe if there was a clothes rental shop, where you could try on things in person, I would be sold. Until then, I will borrow clothes from my boyfriend. ;)
