Whenever I move to a new place, I feel the urge to buy some fashion pieces that the locals often wear. It’s just my way of integrating into the new culture and at the same time, looking less like a tourist. However, it is extremely difficult to do a wardrobe makeover on a student budget. So if you want to know a fun and cheap way to explore new style without going bankrupt then read on.
Every month, the Nürnberg night market (Nachtflohmarkt) takes place from 18:00 till midnight at PARKS Nürnberg. My flatmates and I went there around half past 20 and still managed to find a plenty of decent clothes. After paying the entrance fee of 3 euros, you have access to the giant second-hand warehouse of various styles and sizes. Here you could find anything from shoes to dresses, bags to accessorizes at a very reasonable price. Even though, the clothes are second-hand, they are in good condition and some have been worn only once or twice. I found a Zara dress that still had the tag. I am guilty of buying expensive formal dresses just to wear them once because I don’t want the same dress showed up twice on my Instagram. So here you can find that formal wear or even Dirdl (traditional German dress) for less than half of the original price.
