A well-put-together outfit can do wonders for your overall mood and how the entire world perceives you. It shows that you take good care of yourself and are prepared to meet anyone along the way while leaving a good, lasting impression. In fact, there are studies supporting the theory that being dressed to the nines can help with a person’s overall mood and disposition.

However, high-quality branded clothes come with a hefty price tag and can quickly burn a hole through your wallet. But here’s a life hack you should know about: some places can help you look rich without going poor, and these places are branded ukay-ukay shops or branded thrift stores. While these places might seem like an unreachable shopper’s utopia, some of them could actually be found right here in the metro.

Check out five of the best shops where you can shop ukay-ukay in Manila and where you’ll get branded clothes and items.
