Plato's Closet Highlights Hot Trends for a Cool Start to the New School Year

Fashion Reseller Is Ready to Help You "Recycle Your Style" With the Latest Back to School Looks

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - (Marketwired - Jul 31, 2013) - What's cool about going back to school? The chance to update your wardrobe at up to 70% off original retail with great, on-trend looks from your favorite brands at Plato's Closet, the fashion reseller that offer teens and twenty-somethings a fun place to buy and sell barely-used, in-style clothing and accessories.

"We tell our shoppers that Plato's Closet is the place to 'Recycle Your Style,'" says Renae Gaudette, director of Plato's Closet. "Not only can you sell current fashions that you no longer wear, you can update your style with a selection of current trending fashion ideas from your favorite brands, at a fraction of mall prices. It's recycling with a twist -- turning your old looks into a new, stylish take on you."

The buy and sell approach at Plato's Closet gives teens and twenty-somethings a value-priced way to stay on-trend and on-budget, making the fashion reseller just as popular with parents.

Teens and twenty-somethings can check out the Plato's Closet's website for their Style Blog and What's Trending section, and then stop in to sample some of these cool back to school styles:

  • Printed Jeans: Go a little print-crazy for those end-of-summer parties, or make a more subdued choice in black and gray to see you through the fall.
  • Florals: In September? Really? Sure -- colorful prints will put you and everyone who sees you in a sunnier mood. Want to tone down the print and amp up the style? Add a preppy blazer or leather jacket.
  • Boho: Channel your free-spirit vibe and stake out your personal style in global prints and earthy shades on everything from easy maxi-dresses to little shorts and suede booties.

With styles, trends and personal preferences in a state of constant flux, Plato's Closet offers an ever-changing inventory of barely-used, current styles and fashion accessories from today's hottest brands -- at up to 70% off original retail prices. This combination of style, quality and price makes it easy for teens and twenty-somethings to find and develop their personal sense of style and self with fashion that looks expensive -- but isn't.

"It doesn't take a whole new wardrobe to 'Recycle Your Style,'" says Gaudette. "Sell a few of the items you don't wear anymore at your local Plato's Closet store, pick out a couple of new looks you're dying to try, and keep experimenting. It's fun and it's affordable, too."
