A Breakdown of Spring's Biggest Trends to Buy Used and New

With a new season comes a smorgasbord of new trends—great for jazzing up your Insta feed. Not so great for confronting your credit card bill. So how can you hit some of spring’s biggest trends without spending your whole paycheck? One easy solution is to veer away from buying everything new and venture into buying certain items used. Especially when it comes to designer and luxury brands that can set you back a pretty penny.

Luckily, some of spring 2019’s biggest trends are an ode to vintage styles. Think top-handle bags on the runways at Prada and Miu Miu as well as pretty pearl jewellery as seen at Oscar de la Renta and Chanel. We here at Who What Wear take pride in mixing modern with vintage, so we’re breaking down the new season’s best trends to buy new and what to score secondhand.
