Who doesn’t love a luxury fashion item once in a while? It turns out a lot of people. 2019 has brought us puffed shoulders, textured dresses and a lot, I mean a lot of that white Zara polka dot dress.
It’s all too easy to window shop and end up in a luxury brand getting wrapped up the beauty of it all, channeling Carrie Bradshaw throughout the entire series of Sex And The City, but it turns out that actually buying these items could be a great investment to resell.
We’re not talking Hermes Birkin bags where the resale value is ridiculously out of price range for the average person here. Pieces from Gucci and Dior, whilst still expensive, are the bags to get if you have the stamina for saving for it. They’re great investment pieces for your fashionable self and eventually your financial self should you choose to enter into the resale game.
A website managing the secondhand resale marketplace, Thred Up, has placed the value of £16 billion for this year and is set to be worth over a staggering £41 billion by 2023. I think we all need to take a minute to digest this.
