Second-hand clothing Spring Trends 2015

2nd Take Review- Fashion News and Second-hand clothing

This Past Week at 2nd Take – We take a 2nd look


Colour blocking is a major trend for this spring/summer 2015. For the last two weeks we took a closer look at this major 2015 fashion trend. We were happy to see that our second-hand clothing merchandise was in line with other major Fashion retailers, like Zara or Alexander Wang.
We saw the most spectacular and interesting shades of colour during the recent range of fashion shows.

Classic Blue is once again having a moment, with a range of diversified and really interesting shapes and designs, turning from classy capri’s over suit jackets to outerwear garments.

Red is one of those colours, which never cease reflecting passion and energy and again it attracted the attention of the designers in 2015.

For the coming season white also seems to be really noteworthy and frequent. The Fashion designers are coming up with the catchiest design interpretations and unique styles in terms of textures, patterns, and shapes.

Try out colour blocking to give all those amazing shades a chance in your wardrobe!
We also took a look at what went down on Social Media this week. Take a look at what we at 2nd Take have put together for you in Look of the week, Accessories post and an environmental post. There are also some fun facts that fashionistas ought to know.


Look Of the week

Make a statement by simply pairing your favourite colour blocking shorts or jeans with a shirt and blazer, match it with a pair of cool shoes to complete your 2015 colour blocking summer look.

2nd Take accessories post

Shop the look in store or online.

Please note: All these items are quality second-hand clothing and we only have one of each.


Second-hand clothing and accessories are a winner!

Everyone knows – accessories make the outfit!

Choose the right accessories to match your outfit. For example, if you go for bolder & brighter colours, chances are you will need minimalistic accessories, you can also try the trend vica versa. When you are wearing neutral colours, you can go for brighter accessories to give your look that extra pop.

Complete your look with stunning accessories from 2nd Take, like this black purse, braided belt and of course these amazing #Steve Madden shoes. Get your designer items in store or online.



These are quality second-hand clothing items and we have only one of each item available.


Who wore it best?

Marion Cotillard looks quite stunning in her colour block Christian Dior Resort strapless dress. She added a pair of ankle strap Dior pumps to complete her look.

Spanish actress Aura Garrido wore the same strapless Dior dress with a pair of white pumps and a matching Jimmy Choo clutch.

We think they both look gorgeous. What is your opinion – who wore it best?

Do you know your Fashion facts?

Clarity – finally!! An item of clothing is considered vintage designer clothes if it dates back from 1920 to 1960. Anything after this date is considered retro.


In 1922 a Washington DC law required bathing suits to be not shorter than 6 inches above the knee. You were arrested if you wore a shorter model…


Environmental Concerns

We still love this! Environmental worthy Oscar Fashion Trivia!

Livia, the wife of Colin Firth, who received an Oscar in the category best actor for his performance in “The King’s Speech”, wore a Gary Harvey gown made from 11 different vintage dresses for this special night!

We love environmentally conscious people and actors, wearing second-hand clothing – recycling rocks, just like they do!
