Instagram Thrift shopping-clothes edition
The thrifting trend is gaining momentum in the Indian market and slowly becoming the latest trend in the Indian Instagram shopping scene.
What is thrift shopping, you may ask? Thrift shopping is basically the process of using pre-owned/pre-loved clothes or upcycling them to use them further rather than throwing them out.
What makes thrifting so attractive to Gen Z? It's 2 significant points, The first one being Affordability! Obviously, everyone knows cute clothes almost every time puts a dent in your bank account. Thrifting gives an option to purchase vintage and fashionable clothes at affordable rates. The second reason is the aversion to fast fashion; Gen Z knows it is all about sustainability, and thrifting is one of those little things they can do to help the environment.
