Discount stores

Ashley Graham loves shopping in discount stores

The model opened up about her shopping habits in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar Magazinerevealing that she often picks up bargains and will visit consignment stores that sell second-hand goods before trying her luck with high-end brands.

She explained: “I love The RealReal, I love Amazon. It’s like a mix of high-low for me. I’m the epitome of high-low – like, I just went to Target and I bought a bunch of stuff. I’m all over the place. And durability is a big deal too.”

However, she admitted there was one item she had splurged on – five shirts from R13 which sell for around £350 (R6,800) each.

She added: “I’ve invested in, for me, the perfect oversized white shirt, the R13, and I’ve got three white ones of the same, and I’ve got it in blue pinstripe too – and there’s a short version. Don’t come for me!”

Ashley also explained in terms of durability, she tries to buy pieces that she will wear multiple times rather than succumb to fast fashion.

She added, “I don’t necessarily buy big, trendy things,” she says. “I love classic, timeless pieces that I know I can use – like, even if I put away a bag for a few years, I always go back to it.”

The former ‘America’s Next Top Model’ judge has revealed her summer 2022 must-haves – indicating she’ll be wearing lots of linen pieces and lots of athleisure.
