Look Your Best, Spend Less

Building a fresh, fun and fashion forward wardrobe can put major dents in any student’s wallet. However, with apps like Vinted, HauteLook, and Poshmark, buyers can find creative and cool new looks with cash to spare!

HauteLook, a self­–proclaimed “retail aficionados,” works for fashionistas on a budget. Acquired by Nordstrom in 2011, HauteLook offers daily, limited­-time flash sale events on name brand women’s and men’s fashion apparel, beauty, home décor and more. New sale events are launched every day, beginning at 8 a.m. and typically lasting 48-72 hours, during which customers can find great flash sale deals up to 75% off. With the site’s free mobile app, HauteLook notifies users on new listings and daily discount offers, and all items are eligible for return or refund unless explicitly marked “Final Sale.” Whether it’s upgrading your wardrobe, or refurbishing your home, HauteLook allows shoppers to cash in on hot looks for even hotter deals.

Vinted is the ultimate online swap and sale second–hand treasury for clothing and accessories. With a Vinted profile, users can post photos of clothing they want to trade or sell with other subscribed members. Sellers on Vinted earn 100% of the profits on their sold items, and buyers pay a small service fee of 5%. All items can be made payable via PayPal and credit card, and with Vinted’s prepaid shipping labels, shipping and selling items is easier than ever. Using a symbiotic system of trading, selling, and sharing, users can make money as well as find thousands of name brand items for a fraction of the price. From $20 Vineyard Vines shirts to $40 Patagonia fleeces, Vinted is a true treasure trove, allowing shoppers to declutter their own closets while purchasing low-priced quality items to refill them.

Another quality swap and shop site, Poshmark, is a large “social commerce marketplace” where shoppers can find high-end new or gently-used brands for up to 70% off the original retail price. Top brands include Brandy Melville, Anthropologie, and Lululemon Athletica. While currently only available in North America, Poshmark is a reliable trading post for jewelry, handbags, and clothing. Plus, with Poshmark’s “Posh Protect” policy, buyers and sellers alike are insured with guaranteed refunds should the item not meet the original description, arrive damaged, or did not ship at all.

Launched in 2009 in Nanjing, China, Romwe seeks to take looks “from the catwalk to real world,” via the sites acclaimed affordable prices. Catering worldwide, Romwe offers items at up to 80% off, most notably in their extensive “Sale” category, where buyers can find tops, winter wear, or bottoms for as low as $2.99. With Romwe’s “Daily New inventory intel feature, shoppers can be made aware of the thousands of daily steals on Romwe.

Creating a cutting edge and stylish wardrobe doesn’t have to be done on an expansive budget. With these apps and online sites, the only thing that will be expanding is your closet.
