“A few months ago I bought this J.Crew camisole in another color from their store at full price, so when I found it on Swap.com in ‘Like New’ condition at 10% of the retail price I paid, I felt like I hit the thrift jackpot!”

– Taylor

“I usually wear at least one item from Swap.com every single day. My white button-up is from Uniqlo, the jeans are Levi’s and my sneakers are Pumas; all great finds from Swap.com. All together, the entire outfit is worth more than $100 retail, but I paid less than $50. You just can’t beat that.”

– Emily

“I found these black pants on sale for $3.50. For the price, it was a lot easier to justify testing out a new style and brand I might not have otherwise tried out. I ended up getting compliments all day when I wore these – plus they’re super comfy!”

– Heather

“I’m definitely not a super model, so it can be really frustrating to shop in a store and come away with nothing. I love that on Swap.com I can filter out by size, and even see the inseam on things (so helpful!). My only problem now is limiting the order so I don’t buy out the entire site!”

– Becca

Swap.com Fashion Tips & Tricks: How to Create the Perfect Cuffed Sleeve

On the hunt for a way to look perfectly undone, without looking completely disheveled? Try cuffing your sleeves with these 3 easy steps:

  1. If the shirt has multiple buttons, undo only the one closest to your hand- that way there is some tension as you fold the other layers.
  2. Fold the sleeve 1-3 times so it sits about mid-forearm.
  3. Fold the shirt again 1-2 times until cuff sits right above the elbow. Just remember, you can always play with the fabric to get a messier look, or evenly fold the cuff- for a more tailored effect.

Either way you go, this is a great way to get the sleeve out of your way and adds a funky feel to a basic long sleeve top!
