One of the many dreaded and long-avoided chores included in the big, annual spring clean is the closet purge. Like a good dietary cleanse, ridding ourselves of excess and the unnecessary is a good thing — healthy, even. But, unlike gulping down green juice, we're talking about tossing our clothes — ones that can be hard to part with, no less. And, we're not willing to sell our favorite (and, now, too-small) leather jacket to just any online marketplace.
Thankfully, we've found some guidance in the list of top-ranked resellers, curated by Teen Vogue. The thriftiest on the lineup is SNOBSWAP, where the experience is like shopping through your best friend’s closet: You take one, you leave one. Of course, you’re still able to buy (if you have nothing to sell) and sell (if you have nothing to buy — unlikely). The site specializes in mass-retailer faves like Topshop, Zara, and Nasty Gal. For those with a few higher-end items to part with, Shop Hers may be your favorite, as it authenticates every designer piece.
If your teeny closet is starting to fill up with items you're collecting but not actually wearing, click over for the full list of online consignment spots that'll make spring cleaning so much easier. (Teen Vogue)
