Dig 'N' Swap: The Eco-Chic Way to Build Your Wardrobe

Clothes swapping parties have become increasingly popular as women look to renew their wardrobe without breaking the bank. Now, a year-old start-up called Dig N Swap ( is looking to complement the real-world parties by creating an online community where fashion-conscious women can communicate, share insights, and trade clothes and accessories.

How it works: Users list items they are looking to trade and accept or decline trade offers from other users. It looks easy enough, and while I haven't tried it yet, I have a couple items I hope to post soon.

Why it rocks: Perfect your wardrobe without putting a strain on our planet's resources. It's an eco-friendly, fashionable way to reuse and recycle!

Are you a fan of any clothes-swapping websites?

This concept is really cool. I just wish it was easier to navigate like organizing the categories by size. I found some great Michael Kors shoes but to my disappointment they weren't in my size.

Thanks for keeping us in the know.

This IS a great Paperbackswap for wearables. Makes a lot of sense!

As long as things are in good condition and clean...

I've done clothing swapping events among my friends, and it is just a great way to not only spice up your wardrobe, but give the quality things you don't want anymore to people who want them.

The only reason why I hesitate when it comes to online clothing swaps is that you could deceived into believing that something is in better shape than it actually is. Hopefully, users upload as many pics as possible.

What a cool concept! Do they list the condition of the items and anything about the "seller" rating of various members?
