You could be sitting on a fashion goldmine, sis.
Alexa, play "Cleaning Out My Closet". The average Australian only wears half of what's in their wardrobe, according to 2021 research from Levi's. So if you're feeling both seen and ashamed like me, it may be time to give your closet a spring clean. As well as donating or doing a clothes swap, selling your old threads is a fab way to keep them out of landfill. Plus, it's a great way to make some cheeky cash on the side.
If you're deciding what goes into the "sell" or "donate" pile, you should know that some sought-after labels typically fetch higher bids than others. So to help you rake in the dough, we've rounded up the popular fashion labels that go for big bucks on eBay in 2021.
✨ Popular items: Dresses, tops
💸 Price range: $80-$150
Aussie label Bec & Bridge is coveted for its gorgeous dresses and adorable sets, but they do tend to be a little on the 'spenny side. Many savvy shoppers turn to resell sites like eBay to pick up a Bec & Bridge number on a budget, with used items generally going for between $80 and $150. Not behd.
✨ Popular items: Dresses, skirts, baby tees

As the unofficial "it girl" brand that's hard to get your hands on in Australia, Réalisation Par is a sought-after label in the resale space. It's not uncommon to scroll past Réalisation Par listings going for between $150 and $300 depending on the style. Some of the most popular designs that go for a pretty penny include The Juliet and The Valentina dresses in the daisy or polka dot prints. But it's items from limited edition collections (such as the 2020 Elton John collab) that are the real big kahuna.
✨ Popular items: Dresses, playsuits
