JONESBORO — What’s cool about going back to school? The chance to update school year wardrobe at up to 70 percent off original retail with great, on-trend looks from favorite brands at the Plato’s Closet location in Jonesboro.

The fashion resale store offers teens and 20-somethings a 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,’ said 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.”

Plato’s Closet gives shoppers 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 the 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: - colorful prints will put shoppers and everyone who sees them in a sunnier mood. Want to tone down the print and amp up the style? Add a preppy blazer or leather jacket.

• Boho: Channel the 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 percent 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,’” said 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.”
