With many of us still currently working from home, you might find that a large portion of your wardrobe is being neglected.

In fact, a survey by energy comparison website Saveonenergy.com/uk/ found that, during lockdown, we are only wearing 10 per cent of our clothes.

They also found:

• The average number of items in a women’s wardrobe is: 103

• However, women admitted to not wearing 58% of their clothes in the last six months

• 24% had not been worn in the last year

• The average cost of one item in a woman’s wardrobe is £32

• A woman’s wardrobe is worth around £3,296

Fast fashion is becoming a big problem for the environment, with the textile industry accounting for an estimated 25% of the global carbon budget by 2050.

A study by clothing resale website thredUP revealed that if you shopped second-hand exclusively for one year, you could save a staggering £1,652.

Add this to the £2,966 worth of saleable clothes you have in your wardrobe and you could end up with £4,618 in the bank – and help save the planet.

To help you declutter - and make money in the process - here are seven quick tips for reselling clothes online:

1. Offer discounts: An astonishing 94% of female shoppers rarely buy clothing that isn’t on sale, so try and offer a discount or deal on items.

2. Take great photos: Always provide pics and make them as clear and detailed as possible. Ideally, take a picture with you wearing the clothes so potential buyers can get a feel for how it looks on the body.

3. Get social: Almost 40% of shoppers say social media is the main inspiration for purchases. To get ahead of the curve, make sure your social channels are up-to-date and relevant – pay particular attention to Instagram trends! Promoting your online resale store in this way will work wonders.

4. What’s trending?: Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Tory Burch are among the brands with the best resale value. In short, “young” designer labels can make you the most money. Keeping an eye on what’s trending with shoppers is essential.

5. Honesty is the best policy: There’s no point in trying to hide wear and tear; unforeseen faults will only make you an unreliable seller and you could risk losing your account due to disgruntled customers.

6. Sell activewear: Don’t overlook gym chic! Due to the growing demand for fashionable fitness attire, gym and sportswear is one of the fastest growing categories of clothing.

7. Upload items at the right time: According to research, most second-hand thrifters are night owls that shop between 9pm and 10pm.
