I Recreated 25 Celebrity Looks For Pennies, And Here’s The Result

I believe that everyone should be able to have fabulous style without breaking the bank. Personally, I love putting together groovy celeb outfits from my thrifty closet, as well as preloved and vintage garments!

Secondhand fashion is a wonderfully affordable way to fill your wardrobe with the looks you love, and it’s also eco-friendly!

Unfortunately, many people continue to think that the laundered clothing donated to swaps, thrift stores, and charity shops is somehow dirtier and less hygienic than a “brand new” garment that has traveled through many different factories, hands, and machines worldwide without being washed even once.

Secondhand items that have been gently used by one or two people (and thoroughly cleaned before being resold) are usually much more hygienic than, for example, restaurant cutlery that, while washed often, has still been in multiple customers’ mouths or hotel linens and towels that have touched the intimate areas of numerous guests, ew!

The next time you’re coveting a celeb outfit, look no further than your own closet and your local secondhand shop – with a bit of imagination you’ll be able to put together something similar for next to nothing!

All of the ‘copycat’ looks below were put together from items I already had in my closet and a new-to-me purchase from the thrift shop.
