Posh Tip: Spring Clean to Stock Your Closet

Spring is in full swing and for many this sparks the urge to freshen up and unload clutter in your life, especially in your closet! Right now is the perfect time to lighten the load of that closet rod while stocking your Poshmark closet—and wallet! Not sure where to start? Here are five tips to help you make the tough call on what should go to a loving new home!

1. It Doesn’t Fit You Right Now

Whether it’s too big, too small, or just not right for your body type, life is too short to hold onto clothes that you can’t wear. Try it on and if it’s just not the right size or cut, list it to your Poshmark closet.

2. It Doesn’t Suit Your Personal Style

Personal style is ever-evolving, so your favorite pumps from last year may be collecting a bit of dust now since you reinvented your style. If that boho top doesn’t quite fit your new ladylike vibe or it just simply doesn’t go with anything else in your closet, snap a covershot and list it!

3. You Wouldn’t Buy It Now

Take a good look at the item and ask yourself: If you saw this on the rack at your favorite store today, would you buy it? If the answer is no, it’s time for it to go to a new home! 

4. It Brings Up Bad Memories

Everyone has a piece in their closet that they associate with a not-so-great moment or experience. Whether it’s a piece of jewelry from an ex or that dress you were wearing when you had your most embarrassing moment, make some room for good memories by parting ways with it.

5. You Never Actually Wear It

You know that item in your closet that you keep trying on, but never actually leave the house wearing? It’s a sign that it’s meant to be in your Poshmark closet. And if the tag is still on it after months of hanging in your closet, you should definitely make some room for something you’ll actually wear by selling it!

By thinking through these five points when spring cleaning your closet, we’re sure you find lots of new inventory for your Poshmark closet all the while making room to shop for new summer kicks and flirty frocks.
