18 of the trendiest thrifty and ethical fashion on Instagram

Okay, thriftin’ sounds pretty fun, but will you end up looking like you fell out the back of someone else’s wardrobe?

Beyond taking inspiration from fast fashion look books (which can also be kind of fun to try to recreate in a susty girl way), Instagram is a cool hub to uncover everyday street style that’s tagged with some susty cred – be it #ethicalfashion, #thrifty, #charityshopchic, #vegan or otherwise.

I’m actually pretty new to the photo-sharing network, but now I’m a little addicted to its behind-the-scenes, often “filtered as f**k” culture, as my recent feminist interviewee Emma Murphy words it.

To save your some mindless scrolling time, I’ve picked some of my fave thrifty and ethical looks that I absolutely want to steal. Enjoy!

A white shirt never goes out of style. Throw it on and off you go.

Possibly the fastest route to long, tanned legs.

I know this is technically for blokes, but could rock the oversized thing.

Funky shirt day at work yesterday💃✨#charityshopchic

Everyday should be funky shirts day.

Love a good dungaree dress!

High-waisted is the new black, in my books.

This skirt cost £5 from a charity shop and that's all I've got to say about that ✌🏻️

I have a maxi skirt that I need to rock like this lovely lady.

Everyone should have a denim shirt.
