Fall wardrobe refresh: Apps for buying and selling clothes

Jasmine France | Sept. 23, 2013
If you can't find the time or the nerve to deal with your local thrift shop, try taking your second-hand civvies online.


Pros: Site offers a unique way to browse items. Comment field lets you ask sellers questions. Selection is generally in style.

Cons: Selling requires establishing a storefront (of sorts). No Android app.

Features: Poshmark (Web, iOS) differentiates itself from the herd with a browsing experience based on sellers' "closets"--essentially, their storefronts. Buyers can choose favorite closets based on style and follow those sellers. The service also hosts online parties, which take place at a given date and time, and feature a particular style or type of clothing. At this writing, a "Bold & Beautiful Party" for buying and selling clothing in graphic prints or bright colors was in the offing. This service isn't the best option for once-only selling, and it offers very little clothing for men and children, but plenty of specialty items-- such as wedding, bridesmaid, and prom dresses--are listed.
