Super Savvy Ways to Make Extra Income as a Fashion Lover

For those of you who don't know, I'm actually really into fashion. 

I started reading Vogue and Cosmo in Junior High School, and I knew ALL of the designers.

When I first paid off my student loan, I bought myself a Louis Vuitton bag.

Now, I want to sell that bag because honestly, I haven't used it in years. 

So, when this contributed post came into my inbox, I felt like it was answering my question... how do you make some money off of really mint condition designer clothes, handbags and shoes (I have a pair of Badgley Mischka's that I have never worn...and you know I am sooo proud of myself for spelling that name right on the first try)! 

What about you? Have you ever felt like your closet is an untapped resource? If so, this contributed blog post is for you. There are many ways to make money as a fashion lover...Set up a depop account and use Instagram stories to sell directly, for starters.

You can also rent out your wardrobe on HURR or send old jeans in for 25% off new jeans from M.i.h Jeans. Here are more ways you can make extra income from your closet...

Set Up a Depop Account

A depop account refers to an online shop where you can sell products. You must have a PayPal account to use depop, but it's free. Depop is available on their website and through the app, which you can download for your phone.

Setting up a depop account for your fashion products will allow you to make some extra money on the side. All you need is a few good-quality photos of your product and a short, catchy description.

Use Instagram Stories To Sell Directly to Your Followers

Instagram may be one of your favorite social media platforms because it doesn't require you to spend time editing pictures or waiting until you’re back at your computer. Instead, doing quick little videos in Stories are fun ways that fashion bloggers promote themselves on Instagram while still getting ready for work/school quickly in the morning without sacrificing too much time.

All you need to start selling with an IG story is an active shopping bag link (under 'share'). Once this is set up, you can post a picture of your product and then include the link in the description.

Renting Out Your Wardrobe on HURR

HURRY is an online marketplace that allows people to rent fashion items like clothing or shoes for short periods (usually days). It's perfect for those who want to make some extra cash by renting their clothes, besides, you can also browse this site for other ways to make money. You can either become a stylist yourself and list pieces from your closet or use it as another way to sell products without having to do any designing at all.

Send Your Old Jeans to M.I.H Jeans and Get 25% off a New Pair

This one is great if you have lots of old jeans lying around and you're unsure what to do with them. M.i.h Jeans is a company that will give you 25% off a new pair of jeans if you send in your old ones. All you have to do is fill out this form, and they'll email you back with more information.

The best part? They recycle all of the denim they receive, so it's a great way to help reduce environmental waste as well.
