Now that summer is well underway, we're already looking ahead to next season. We're certainly not wishing our lives away, but getting ahead in the outfit department can only ever be a good thing, right? 

That means taking stock of what we already own and making a note of the areas in which our wardrobes are currently lacking.

Vestiaire is ideal for luxury items

Vestiaire Collective, great for selling pre-loved designer pieces, is super simple – all you need to do is upload a photo, add a brief description and the site actually recommends a data-driven price. Plus, if you're looking to raise some quick funds, there is a buyer-seller chat function that can be used to negotiate a price. They even offer pre-paid shipping labels to make your life that bit easier.

Vinted is great for selling lower-priced labels

Vinted ought to be your first port of call if you're looking to sell pre-loved high street or mid-range pieces. The vibe is defo more DIY than some of the slicker sites dedicated to designer resale, but it is still super straightforward. There are even options to boost your wardrobe's visibility and offer a discount for bundles if you're staging a sartorial mass exodus.

Cocoon champions a community approach

If you have a penchant for killer arm candy, you might want to consider signing up to its bag rental subscription service. Accessory aficionados, listen up. If you sell your pre-loved treasures with Cocoon you can earn cash as well as credit towards your membership.

You can sell your item in exchange for store credit

Selfridges' resale service is an excellent option if you know you're looking to invest in another treasure either in-store or online as you sell your pre-loved bag in exchange for credit. There is a list of accepted brands – suffice to say they're on the upper end of the designer spectrum – all you need to do is upload images, receive a quote, schedule a collection date and enjoy spending your Selfridges credit.
