Top 8 fashion trends to help you make more sales this fall

Get ahead of the trends. Learn what styles will be hot this fall and how to list them for maximum visibility and potential sales.

Team Mercari

Cue the pumpkin spice lattes. Autumn is just around the corner, and Mercari shoppers are already looking for the latest trends for their fall wardrobes. So, if you’re looking to declutter, make space for new clothes and shoes, or earn extra money, now’s the time to check your closets, storage units and that bottom dresser drawer for items you no longer wear. Here are 8 top trends to list for fall and how to tag them for maximum visibility on Mercari: 

1. Oversized blazers 

You may have rocked the oversized blazer in the 80’s or again when it resurfaced in 2019. But if yours hasn’t been worn in awhile and you’re ready to retire it, now’s the time. Oversized blazers, especially made of tweed, wool or other quality material, are in demand for fall.

Use these tags: #oversizedblazer #boxyblazer #blazer #fallfashion

2. Patchwork, plaid or patterned pants 

Got a pair of patchwork, plaid or patterned pants from the 90’s or early 2000’s that you no longer wear? A new wave of trend-setters – both men and women – are looking for these unique pieces to make their OOTDs pop.  

Use these tags: #Patchworkpants #patchwork #y2k #fallfashion

Fashion Selling Tip: Detailed descriptions, including approximate measurements, material information, unique details (such as silk lining, faux pockets, embroidery) and condition, can help get your stuff sold faster.

3. Sequin staples 

If you’re no longer sporting your sequin dresses, jackets, purses or skirts, list them! Fashionistas are looking to dial up the glam with a standout glitzy piece.

Use these tags: #Sequins #sequindress #fallfashion

4. Chunky and oversized knit sweaters 

Do they ever go out of style? Nothing says fall fashion more than a cozy, chunky sweater. If you’ve got a few you’re no longer wearing, list them. You might even bundle a few together in one listing to help save on packing and shipping time.

Use these tags: #Oversizedsweater #Chunkycardigan #dolmansleeves #fallfashion

Fashion selling tip: Use a sweater shaver or razor (gently!) to remove pilling from sweaters or knit materials. 

5. Off-white and neutral tones

Did you know that “off-white” is one of Mercari’s top-searched keywords this season? Whether they’re searching for the brand or the color, neutrals are always in season. Shoppers are on the hunt for shirts, pants and accessories to complete an outfit in full monochrome. 

How to tag: #offwhite #monochrome #tonal #neutraltone #fallfashion

6. Leather jackets

Leather or vegan leather jackets of all styles are trending, especially trench and moto. 

Use these tags: #leatherjacket #blackleather #motojacket #fallfashion

Fashion selling tip: Mercari Authenticate makes it easy to sell preloved luxury goods

7. Work-style overshirts 

Is it a jacket? Is it a shirt? Both – it’s a shacket! Heavier work-style overshirts are the perfect added layer for crisp fall weather, and both men and women are on the hunt. Got one that’s well-loved and already broken in? Bonus points – it’s even cozier that way.

Use these tags: #shacket #shirtjacket #overshirt

8. Vintage oversized band tees

Everyone loves a good band tee, especially old-school ones from the 80s and 90s. These iconic tees layer well with overwear (*ahem*, like those leather jackets and oversized blazers you’re listing, too).
