Dedicated: Shop Smart for Summer Pieces

Fashion and trends are ever changing from season to season. And trying to keep up can take a toll on your wallet, especially when you opt for high-quality products. Luckily, there are ways to stay on trend without breaking your bank. Summer is upon us and we’re ready to take on the challenge of finding quality pieces at an affordable price. Here are a few ways to do it.

Shop on Poshmark

When you’re in need of fresh new styles, rely on your smartphone to shop online or even shop someone else’s closet. Poshmark is an app that can be utilized to buy and sell quality pieces that have been previously worn. It’s a great marketplace to sell items that no longer fit or you don’t care for anymore and it’s equally great for shopping. By selling, you generate revenue that you can in turn use to purchase more discounted clothes that fit your style and preference.

How Does Poshmark Work?

First, you snap a photo, or Covershot, of the item that you want to sell. Choose a filter to give the item an editorial feel. The better quality photo that you take, the more likely it will be purchased by another Poshmark shopper. Use a high-resolution camera from a smartphone like the Galaxy S7 to take a professional-quality photo. Upload and simply wait for someone to discover your fashion gems. The trick of getting more sales is to take a quality picture that portrays the stylishness of your closet items.

Whatever styles you’re searching for this summer, you can be sure to find something that suits your taste online or in-store. Keep in mind that when you seek to buy more pieces at a cheaper price, you’re likely to be forgoing quality. You can find great pieces on Poshmark by searching up certain brands that you trust or by starting up a dialogue with the seller and inquiring more about the details of the item.

Shop the Sales

There is plenty of potential in the sales section, but it’s not always a walk in the park to find items that you love. Sale shopping requires patience and stamina. There could be one or two pieces that are absolutely perfect for you, but buried under a pile of undesirable items. Remember that it takes some scavenging in the sales section, but with a bit of luck, you can find quality pieces to add to your summer wardrobe.

Shop Off-Season

One method of finding affordable clothes is to shop for items that are off-season; look for winter clothes in the summer and summer clothes in the winter. It takes a bit of foreknowledge of which items will still be on trend, but when you shop for off-season items, it’s likely that you’ll get a substantial discount.

Shop Basics

Invest in clothing items that are classic and will never go out of style. For instance, a pair of cute denim cut-offs and a crisp white shirt are two pieces we see every summer. When you begin to invest in quality pieces that transcend trends, your closet will have more pieces that you can wear for many seasons to come.
