The 5 Best Sites For Selling Your Clothes Online

These Trusted Sites Make It Simple to Sell Your Designer Duds
Filed Under > Everyday

Lugging your old trench coats, slip dresses (though seeing this lovely one may inspire you to keep it after all) and designer handbags into a traditional consignment shop is a thing of the past, my friends. There are so many easy ways to sell your clothes online these days, and I have to say it’s quite satisfying as a seller to get that confirmation email saying I’ve just received an offer, or my item has sold.

Most of the best sites to sell your clothes online work in a similar fashion (free shipping is key), and they’re all straightforward in how they process and list your items. The only hoop to jump through, really, is being patient enough to take the photos and upload your designer duds!  But any true fashionista won’t be able to resist the chance to trade-in old favorites for new, right? Click through the slideshow above to find the five best sites to sell your clothes online (especially my favorites: Vestiaire Collective and The RealReal). Tell me, have you tried to sell online?  Do you have a go-to site you prefer over the rest?  Cheers, Kat

5 Winter Style Essentials to Own

Must-Own Classic Pieces for Winter That Don't Sacrifice Style
Filed Under > Fashion

With that little blip of spring weather earlier this week, I found myself yearning for warm days already.  Definitely wishful thinking on my part, but around this time every year, I’m itching to file my sweaters and scarves away for another year.  But reality has it that the temps have dipped again, and I’m still relying heavily on a few favorite cold weather staples.

Early on this winter season, I hunted down the exact black turtleneck I was on the hunt for (on major sale right now too).  This piece has proven to be just one of my favorite winter style essentials that I find myself reaching for again and again.  Like a favorite pair of jeans, this sweater makes me feel good the second I put it on…I can just depend on it to make me feel put together and like myself. I was specifically on the hunt for a lightweight option, and it’s proven to be a great buy (I bought it in grey too!).

Since I’ve recently been on a big fewer-better-pieces kick (probably in huge part due to one of my favorite brands, Cuyana), I’ve come to find that having a few basic winter style essentials that I really, really like (like said hat, a wool hat and a great oversized scarf) makes it easier to get dressed every day. So in the slideshow above, I’ve rounded up five winter style essentials that I think are crucial for anyone’s cold weather fashion game.  These pieces are classic, timeless and ones that will take your outfit up a notch or two…while keeping you warm and cozy.  Nothing crazy—we don’t need street style on the way to the office or happy hour—but practical pieces you’ll be glad you have in your closet.  What do you consider to be your winter style essentials?  Cheers, Kat

P.S. Any fellow Cuyana fans out there: can we talk about how good the spring collection is going to be?! I think I bookmarked every piece, and it’s just another reason why I’m counting down until warmer days.  xo
