How to Determine the Resale Value of Your Designer Items

Thinking of unloading some of your designer wares? Vestiaire Collective has just launched its new Resale Calculator that lets you find out the resale value of your items. You'll be asked to make selections about the brand name, category, product type, model, material, and color, and the calculator will give you an estimate—it's that simple.

You can use it in a myriad of ways: If you're contemplating making a splurge, you can use it to make an informed decision about how much you could sell the item down the line. Or if you already own some pre-loved pieces, the calculator will help you determine how much you can sell it for on sites like Vestiaire.

Every heavy-hitting brand is included in the tool: We're talking Chanel, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, and more. And while bags are hugely popular on the resale market, that's not all you can research—shoes, jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, watches, wallets, and hats are just some of the other categories you can look up as well. The more information you have, the better!

Gucci is still one of the buzziest brands in fashion right now, so it would be a good pick for an investment.
