Surely, you have a lot of clothes that you rarely put on, or that you've received as a present and you didn't like it so much. Don't let them stacked in your closet! You can sell them online on different marketplaces.
Firstly, take a look at your stuff: clothes, shoes or accessories. They've to be quality items and also be in good shape. If it has stains or holes, or if it's stretched, you could donate them or use them for some DIY projects. If not, put it into the washing machine and get it ironed if necessary, so it'll be in its best possible condition.
After that, take great pictures of each item, if possible with natural light. Try to use clear backgrounds. Shoot many photos of your product, including some details that you'd like to highlight.
You need to write a description for each item, which should include its brand, size, and condition. You can name some other attributes that can't be seen in the picture, like “it feels really comfortable” or “the coziest coat you'll ever wear”.
Ir order to price your stuff right, you can look in the brands' stores for the new clothes' prices, and compare them with other second-hand prices that you'll see on different marketplaces. You should also calculate the shipping costs and fees before establishing the prices.
Once you've posted your items in different marketplaces, if time goes by and you don't get an offer, consider lowering the price, or combining products as another strategy. Try always to think like a buyer, and what you'd like to get as an extra when purchasing any of your stuff. You can even sell matching clothes and advertise them as a great outfit!
