If there are two things that I thoroughly enjoy, it’s thrifting and helping people build a more functional closet. Both of those combined is why I love Poshmark so much. Since I started using the app, my main Poshmark strategy has always been to give people great clothing for a great price. Yes, making money is great, but that’s not the sole purpose that I’m on the app. That’s why I decided to change up my Poshmark strategy to make my goal even more clear.
When I first got on Poshmark, I listed unwanted items from my closet. The tactic worked fine. Well, okay more than fine. It paid my student loans and went towards building my own sustainable closet. Then I decided to pick up some good finds thrifting and post those on Poshmark, so that someone else can reap the benefits of a good deal. But eventually the tactic of posting whatever I found got boring.
That led me to slacking on Poshmark, feeling uninspired, and, ultimately, taking a little break from the app. I got back on to list a few things for Dressember, with all money going to the non-profit, but I didn’t feel the same joy that I did before. Honestly, stepping back from the app gave me the ability to see my Poshmark tactic more clearly.
Now I’m onto a different Poshmark strategy — building capsule wardrobes.
What is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is basically a starter wardrobe. It’s a handful of items that you can mix and match to create different outfits. You can add as many items to the capsule collection as your little heart desires, but this is the starting point. Some people use this for a minimal clothing collection and others just use it as a base to find their personal style. There’s no wrong way to do it, but there are a tons of ways to create one.
I have grown to be very passionate about capsule wardrobes, especially the deeper that I dive into fashion. No matter who you are or what your background is, you can benefit from a capsule wardrobe. That’s why I decided to make a strategic plan to curate different types of capsule wardrobes for Poshmark.
It’s a win-win for me. First of all, I get to continue to thrift and put together Poshmark listings. I also get to make people’s lives a little easier by finding a cohesive wardrobe for them and giving it to them for a great price.
It’s a passion of mine combined with a hobby that is really, truly fun. That, my friends, is the key to Poshmark.
But enough about the “why” of it all. Let’s talk clothing. I spent some time going through my past listings, new finds, and some unwanted items from my own closet to put together four different collections. I call them my “edits.” There’s the EVERYTHING EDIT, BLUES EDIT, TURTLENECK EDIT, and COLORBLOCK EDIT.
Each one is made up of a variety of items that all go together. Think: the same girl would wear every single item in the edit. If you like one of the items, there’s a good chance that you like them all. That’s the idea that I was going for. You can buy the pieces altogether for a steal, if I do say so myself, or purchase the items individually. the choice is yours, but both are there for you on my page right now.
Capsule collections are not easy to create.
First, you have to figure out what your personal style is. After that, you have to figure out what items are the most important to include in your wardrobe. The last, and what I would argue is the hardest part, is actually finding the items. You have to decide where you’re willing to look and be patient. Finding the right items takes time and dedication. Lucky for you, I’ve done all of that for you.
If you can’t tell, I’m a little geeked out by capsule collections. I love every single thing about them. But it’s time to break down my two favorite capsule collections that I have listed so far — the EVERYTHING EDIT and the BLUES EDIT. All four edits on my page are very different, but theses two are the most cohesive and complete.
THE EVERYTHING EDIT.
This is a full summer collection. It was designed for the cool-girl who loves fashion, but isn’t willing to spend a lot of time and money finding the perfect look. It’s a fun, laid-back meets put-together style that has everything you need for casual days, nights out, and, when you add a pair of black slacks or white jeans, gives you enough work options, too.
The colors are black, white, and rust red. The pop of color is there, but the rest of it is classic and modern. You are going to be able to wear these items for years to come, but will also stand out in a crowd.
THE BLUE EDIT.
If you’re looking for something a little more feminine, this is the edit for you. The collection was made for the girl wants a clean, effortless look at all times. The bright white and light blue colors make for a great spring to summer collection.
The five tops in this collection can all be work so many different ways. Two of the shirts can be worn at least two ways and the light blue tank makes for the perfect layerable piece. But what I really love about this edit is that you can build different neutrals and layers right into your closet. If this is your style, you likely already have a few other items that will blend seamlessly.
There are two other edits on my page, just waiting for you to check out. I’d love to hear what you think of my new Poshmark strategy and what strategies that you have on the app, too. Everyone Poshes their own way, and that’s the beauty of the app.
