College Student's Guide to Cheap Clothes

Edit: This is mostly women’s, mainly because I haven’t been able to find any decent online thrift stores for men, but please, please, please message me with any suggestions!

Let’s start with some great online thrift stores. Using the credits offered, you can even possibly snag some free clothes. When you’re shopping online, it’s probably best to figure out how much wear is on the item and also do a search for a sizing guide for the brand you’re buying.

If you find any item you’re interested in and it’s from a popular brand, I highly suggest comparing prices on a couple different sites if you can. Sometimes you will find the same item a couple dollars cheaper on a different site. Feel free to message me if you want help with this - just include link of the item you’re thinking of buying. It may take a few days for me to respond.

Ebay - Takes a lot of searching, but I’d suggest looking for brands you know you like; that will make it a lot easier. You can customize your search limits a lot, including by total price. By wary of items Buy It Now Prices because a lot of them are jacked up. If it’s from a popular brand, try cross-searching for the same item on Poshmark/Vinted, as you may find it cheaper there and vice versa.

Threadflip - This one has free shipping and one of the best search engines that you can choose size/style/price/etc. If you use my link, you’ll get a $5 credit just for signing up. If you have trouble getting the credit, just message the site and they should fix it.

ThredUp -  Using this link will get both of us a $10 credit. Lots of clothes for low prices and juniors and kids as well.

Poshmark - This is where I’ve found the best stuff, with the largest selection, 4.99 for shipping.

Storenvy - A little more expensive, shipping for each item is separate, not too much selection.

Vinted - this is probably where you’ll find the cheapest clothes. It has tons of cheap clothes, especially cute shirts. You may get a free credit when signing up; it’s randomized. Shipping is the biggest worry here - but it depends on the weight/location of the item. Shoes/Coats are probably going to cost more to ship here than on Poshmark, but lighter items will be cheaper


Target - If you get a RED debit card, you get 5% off and free shipping on a lot of the clothing. It may be better to just see what they have in store though.

Forever21 - Usually pretty cheap, but not always great quality. Shipping online probably isn’t worth it.

H&M - Has lots good clearance and has free shipping specials often.

In Store Thrift Shops - probably going to be your cheapest option

Plato’s Closet - usually has lots of cute clothes for cheap, along with really cheap accessories.

Do a search for nearby thrift stores and if there’s a wealthy/big city near you, check stores out there because they generally have better quality/bigger selections. One near me has brands like Free People and J. Crew for under $10.

Looking for specific items

Polyvore - Use the price rank to see the cheaper options

Shopstyle - Updated frequently with sale prices

Site that lists daily deals in a variety of stores

Hip2Save - a daily deal site, often updated with sales.

Check for current coupon codes.

If you’re a little cautious about an item, feel free to message me and I’ll try and vet it for you.
