What is dress crossing and what are its advantages?

Every girl wants to regularly update your wardrobe. But what if there is no money to buy new things? Dress-crossing will help you to always be bright and different!

What it is?

If you are familiar with the concept of "dress-crossing", then you certainly want to find out what it is. Translated from English, this phrase is translated roughly as "exchange of dresses." And the essence of this direction lies precisely in this, that is, in the exchange of clothes. In other words, you can exchange any of your things for someone else.

There was such a direction in the UK about ten years ago. There girlfriends and classmates often organized parties and brought with them clothes. They tried on other people's things and could exchange them. Not so long ago, dress-crossing came to Russia and other CIS countries.

How to participate?

There are several options for dress crossing. Here are some of them:

  1. Specialized events.

Participation conditions, characteristics and features of things can be different. So, you may need to pay an entrance fee. Clothing selection is mandatory, for example, by season, appearance, and size. Most often organizers are limited to the most common sizes, that is, from 42 to 48-50. But in any case, all the clothes exchanged must be in good, perfect or new condition. So the "shreds" are definitely not exchanged. Some organizers assign each item checks and points, which makes participation more than fair. For example, if you bring a very expensive item, you can get a whole lot for it.
