When we eagerly purchase something we simply have to have, it's hard to imagine there will come a day when we no longer want it. But as you probably know from experience, it inevitably happens, but it doesn't necessarily mean you'll end up in the red. You see, there certainly are brands that resale-loving fashion girls line up to get their hands on from sites like The RealReal and Poshmark. So, naturally, we asked them what they are!
You're probably aware that a Chanel bag will hold its value, but what about those less obvious brands that you might already have in your closet? To help you out, Senior Director of Merchandising Kate Franco for Poshmark and chief merchant Rati Levesque for The RealReal divulged which 12 less expected brands hold their value. We advise taking note, as this information can certainly help you make smart shopping decisions now, choose which brands to add to your wardrobe later, or help you with a little spring closet cleaning.
Keep scrolling to get the insider info on which 12 brands will bring in the most cash in the long run!
"Handbags are an obvious choice when it comes to items with strong resale value on Poshmark, but jewelry and accessories are also big contenders because, like handbags, they complement every outfit and are always in high demand. Plus, they are super easy to buy because you don't have to worry about size and fit! For sellers looking to make some extra cash this season, accessories from brands such as MVMT, Ray-Ban, Illesteva, Chloé, Nixon and Hermès hold value on Poshmark right now." — Kate Franco
"This season is all about the ladylike heel—think classic Manolo mules. An under-the-radar heritage brand that has always been making this style is Roger Vivier with their classic buckle pumps, and you can consign these when you are done at up to 90% of original purchase price!" — Rati Levesque
"Popular with the minimalist set, these pieces are hitting the mark on the architectural trend happening in jewelry. We're selling 70% of items in four days with price points over $2000." — Rati Levesque
"Not your typical fashion brand, but Moncler down coats are a number one seller on our site, often at 80% off the original retail price. Invest now!" — Rati Levesque
"Another athleisure brand that is highly covetable but not on everyone's radar is Prada Sport. Customers are snapping up sneakers and outerwear alike!" — Rati Levesque
"Versatile pieces with a California sensibility that take the seriousness out of fine jewelry. Sydney Evan jewelry is often seen on celebs in the L.A. set like Emma Stone and Bar Refaeli. We sell more than 70% of items we receive in four days." — Rati Levesque
"Search is up 38% year-over-year with shoppers, with belts and iPhone cases being some of the key items shoppers are on the hunt for. This logo-driven brand brings in whimsical accessories that our shoppers have an appetite for." — Rati Levesque
