Putting Your Fashion Expertise To Good Use
Not everyone knows how to dress well. If you know how to put together an outfit that rocks, then you’ve got a skill. And when you’ve got a skill, you can make money from it. While it’s fine to simply keep your fashion expertise a hobby, it can be worth exploring whether you can use it to supplement your income. The benefit of doing this? You’ll have more money in your bank account that you can use to buy clothes!
In this blog, we’ll run through some money-making options for the fashion conscious. You might just get started on a part-time basis, but you never know where it might lead!
Become a Personal Shopper
Some people don’t have time to go shopping, or they just don’t know what to buy when they’re hitting the mall. But you? You do know what’s worth buying and what isn’t. So why not look at becoming a personal shopper? With this, you’ll take a look at a person’s style and the colors they suit, then hit the store with their credit card — and you’ll charge for your time, too.
Or a Stylist
If you don’t want to hit the mall every weekend (if you love shopping, then that might just be pure temptation), you can also consider becoming a stylist. This is when you use an existing wardrobe to put together an outfit, usually with a specific tone or outcome in mind. This can be an exciting career option, as you can end up working in movies and television shows. The clothes that people on the big screen wear don’t just come from thin air. The outfit has been put together by someone who knows what they’re doing with clothes, someone just like you.
Sell Clothing Online
If you’ve got an eye for trendy clothes, then why not look at starting your own online clothing store? This is relatively easy to set up; you’ll just need a website, some stock, and a payment and shipping process. There are two methods for running your own eCommerce store. You can buy stock from elsewhere, or you can sell your own creations. The latter is better, as it’ll help you to create a brand; plus, it’s easy. You can work with a jeans manufacturing company and create your own expertly designed jeans without having to do the manufacturing yourself. Just be sure to market your business well, because competition in this area can be fierce.
Become an Influencer
Another option, a very modern option, is to become an influencer. If you’ve been putting together great outfits and have built a big following, then now could be the time to monetize your followers list. With this, you’ll work with fashion brands to promote their clothes. This can be a tough job, of course, and competition can be very fierce, especially since everyone wants to be an influencer these days. But it’s also fun, and you’ll get the satisfaction of making a living doing something that you positively love!
