2022 Wholesale Clothing Trends

The new year has arrived and with it comes the anticipation of warmer weather, fragrant blossoms and beautiful sunsets. Spring is around the corner, but if you find yourself in the last throes of winter, pour a cup of joe and forget your winter blues as we talk about new fashion trends starting to roll out for spring 2022. Top 2022 Trends Easy on the Eyes  Spring 2022 will unveil some of the dreamiest, wearable colors yet, and we can't wait to try them on and market our favorites. Expect hues that are subtle and easy on the eyes, like soft lilac with a touch of gray undertone. Other finishes you’ll see on every designer rack this spring will be tones of mystifying sky blue, shades of rose, stunning peach and sassy mint and sage. Upbeat neutrals will abound, such as classic tans and cool slate, with some designs mixing pastels and neutrals for contrast and dimension. This new pallet of spring colors are sure signs you are shopping from the latest collections.            It’s All About Texture and Dimension  For the upcoming spring season, we are also seeing new product lines with diverse textures, prints and patterns that create a sense of dimension and movement, such as two-tone, rib and textured knits. Patchwork prints will be hot this spring, with many designs incorporating lace, embroidery, eyelet and pleats. Woven, wool dobby rayon with a crepe-like feel will remain popular, as will brushed polyester knits offering buttery-smooth textures that drape beautifully. And kimonos made with silky watermark fabric will be go-to layering pieces and have knee-length or longer hemlines.                Ruffles, Cut-Out Shoulder, Surplice and Kimonos Look for dresses and kimonos to don three-quarter length ruffle sleeves, and tops with charming short flutter sleeves that create a sense of movement. You’ll also see more styles with surplice or square necklines and popular cold shoulder and cut-out designs. A variety of florals and patchwork blended designs with ditzy floral, paisley or ethnic print will abound. And don’t expect trendy prints like animal and camo to go away anytime soon.      Last year was challenging in many ways, and most of us are glad to end 2021 and welcome 2022. It's hard to imagine a post-Covid world, but history proves that innovation prevails during times of crisis, and we're hopeful that the fashion industry is no exception. Feast your eyes on lavish pastels and complementary colors like sunny canary or hot pink. Have fun showcasing new spring styles that mirror a sense of renewal with designs that are flowy, light and dazzle with texture. The best is yet to come!

3 Steps You Need To Take To Buy The Best Wholesale Clothing

Buying at low prices and selling at high is one of the essential tenants of business. In terms of the clothing business, it’s no different. That’s the reason why people who want to start their clothing business or boutique shop are desperately looking for ways to buy wholesale. It may not seem a daunting task for buying wholesale as there is a wide array of sellers available online. But, it can be challenging to ensure that one buys the best clothing at the lowest possible price. Besides, finding the best wholesalers online is not an easy task. It requires careful inspection, planning, and researching to find the best wholesalers and buy the best clothes. So, let’s take a look at the three critical steps that everyone should take to buy the best wholesale clothing for their clothing business, Steps to Finding A Clothing Wholesaler Many people think that finding a wholesaler that sells everything under one hood is a great way to start a clothing business. But it’s not. When a wholesaler sells everything under one hood, it lowers their capability of specializing in the clothing niche. It means they will not be able to offer a variety of clothing. However, for a clothing shop, it’s essential to provide a variety of trendy clothing to their customers. Else, they won’t be able to retain their customers for a long time. So, while searching for wholesale clothing online, it would be prudent to opt for a seller who offers a wide variety of clothing at the best price. Look For The Perks Every wholesale supplier offers unique advantages to their customers. These are the reasons why retailers or boutique owners decide to sign a deal with these sellers. So, it’s essential to ask for the perks before finalizing any decision. Some of them offer their customers a trial session. It means retailers can buy a single product to check its quality and materials. Some sellers provide the lowest price when retailers purchase more items from them. There are a lot of such advantages that every individual wholesale supplier offers. One must check these before they sign a deal with these sellers. Read Their Shipping Policy A problematic aspect for every business owner is to retain their customers. When customers visit a clothing store multiple times, and they don’t find their favorite item, they may not return in the future. This often happens due to not sourcing the clothing items within a brief time. Every wholesale supplier has an estimated time for delivery. But, retailers often don’t check for these essential things and place an order. Sometimes, it takes longer to get those products delivered than expected. And it leaves a negative impression on the business. So, people should read the shipping policies and delivery times before finalizing any deal with these suppliers. The process of setting up a clothing or boutique shop and sourcing the ideal wholesaler isn’t easy. However, these are the three essential steps to take towards creating a successful clothing business.

5 Tips to Improve your Boutique Photos

5 Tips to Improve your Boutique Photos

Boutique presentation used to mean billboards, racks, wooden floors, cute hangers, etc. Things have obviously split in the last decade and now boutique presentation can also apply to your online aesthetics. When it comes to your facebook, instagram, or website the difference maker between a good boutique and a great one is the quality of the images. In this article we will go over five helpful tips to improve your online presentation by enhancing your product photographs. The 5 Ways to Improve Your Photos 1.) Variety Maybe you managed to attain a great model and backdrop but if you don't mix it up with variety of models and scenery then you can come off looking drab. People love effort and they notice it instinctively, if you go through the time to switch it up with indoor shots and lifestyle as well as mix in a couple different models this energy will pay off with your audience.  2.) Image Quality and Consistency When online sites first became prominent one would have to hire a professional photographer or purchase an expensive cannon camera. We are so fortune with phone and camera technology as good as it is to utilize these devices to create stunning professional images.  I have two tips when it comes to snapping away on your phone. One, be careful on overdoing it with the filters. My suggestion is to always use the least contrast filter and gear more towards warmer then cooler. When you've settled on the filter you like be sure to apply it to all of the images (at least for that season) and don't mix it up the next week with a different filter.  Secondly, lighting is still extremely important. I'm sure you've noticed outside shots have a certain depth and richness to them compared to inside shots, so if possible shoot outside (overcast days are the best or mornings) or in a well lit room. 3.) Still vs Life Style I am writing this in 2021 and at the moment life style is very much in trend. So grab your models, put them on a sidewalk and let them stroll down the town while you snap away.  Off model shots that are done on hangers or laid flat on wood are also really in right now. You can add accessories, flowers, hats to the image and this "Pinterest" style photography can come across professional and save you time and money versus shooting on a model.   4.) Model Fit Plus size has been doing really well the last couple of years. If you can get your hand on a plus size model this will drastically improve your sales.  When it comes to shooting your regular sizes you might think getting the average sized girl is the way to go.  Perhaps for some companies it is but it's still my experience that you will have the most success when shooting on a size small.  This doesn't mean you can't mix it up with model sizes. See what works for you! 5.) Mix up Accessories We talked a little about accessories and putting effort into your shots but really this deserves its own category. You can enhance each photoshoot by adding 2-3 different totes or bags as well as mixing up the bottoms with pants and shorts. Pay specific attention to detail and don't short cut on the accessories.  I guarantee you will have more success with your images if you concentrate on the accessories, background and model then you do on professional image quality. Best of luck!

Are Wholesale Clothing Distributors Beneficial? A Complete Guide

The importance of wholesale clothing distributors to an apparel shop can never be ignored. Wholesalers are direct dealers who purchase clothing from apparel manufacturers in large volumes and then provide it to different retailers. They may also provide you with ready-to-wear garments or raw fabric materials or both, depending on your preferences.  However, the wholesalers also have to understand that it is important to maintain good relations with their customers. Good customer service and responsive pricing are two of the most important things any wholesaler should have. There are many types of wholesale clothing distributors, including foreign, local and through direct marketing companies. Guide to the Benefits of Wholesale Distribution How are wholesale clothing distributors important for business? Some wholesalers only sell in local markets, while others are global. They have to keep up with global changes in fashion trends and adapt to those changes. In order to stay up with business trends, wholesale clothing distributors have to find ways of diversifying and ensuring they keep themselves at the forefront of the business world. For them, the Internet can prove to be an extremely effective outlet. With the Internet, wholesalers can establish a strong presence online, reach a larger base of potential customers and increase their sales. How are wholesale clothing suppliers important? Wholesaling is a business and a very complex one, especially since clothing is considered a luxury. These wholesale outfits provide materials to clothing manufacturers as well as to other retailers and wholesalers who participate in reselling these products. It is common that when you shop for clothes you do so because you need something to wear on special occasions. It is also common that when you shop for clothes you tend to choose the ones that are cheap. Many tend to buy from the cheaper outlets, without really thinking whether they will last and with the economy the way it is today, you really wouldn't know how good it actually has to be until it is your turn to shop. And when you are the buyer, you tend to get fakes, since the fake manufacturers sell at much cheaper rates than the real ones. But when you work with a wholesale outfit, you will know how good it actually is. Final Take There are a lot of people who would love to try out the clothing line produced by a particular brand or manufacturer, but are afraid to do so because of the cost.

Can I Really Make a Successful Boutique?

Boutique Blog – by Krystal W

Can I Really Make a Successful Boutique?

I've been in the industry for almost two decades and I can't possibly imagine a market that has higher turn over then the boutique industry. I think some good questions to ask oneself are: Why does a boutique fail? If 8 out of 10 boutiques fail, what can I do differently to find long term success? Why A Boutique Is Not Successful The short answer is that any business usually fails when its cash flow has run out.  A flailing boutique usually gets caught in a vicious cycle of needing to purchase new clothing to get that bump in sales but then not able to sell all of the clothing to get the cash needed for the next batch of new clothing. The cash in hand gets smaller and smaller until eventually there isn't enough cash for continual new items and sales decrease as a result. This cycle repeats until the company has to close. I think its a good time to stop and say, so what if you fail and have to close.. At the very worse you might break even or lose a years worth of savings. But at least for 6 months to possibly 2 years or more you ran a business that you loved and had fun. I think thats an important lesson that I've taken away, that all of the women who failed making a boutique never regretted it. So what can you do differently to ensure a long successful business? There is no simple answer and even if you employed every technique in the book, sometimes the market just isn't open for new businesses to thrive. This may be because of over saturation of boutiques or an economic down turn. Either way what you want to do is closely watch your cash flow. Being that the reason one fails is diminishing cash flow, you want to make sure you always have enough cash. This means not over purchasing stock, over spending, reducing expenses and rent and ensuring that you take have a strategic mark down strategy to implement to sell all of your clothing by seasons end. There are more tools and advantages at a boutiques disposal than ever before. Advantages like: instant trends from shopping for wholesale online, massive marketing advantages with social media, an expanding amount of drop shipping companies that allows you to supplement tons of new styles at virtually no cost.  Who you should really be sorry for when it comes to the clothing market are big box stores. The days of big box stores advantages are closing fast, unlike boutiques they have very limited access to instant fashion and social media marketing and their cheap prices are not that far off in price for what a Mom and Pop boutique can offer.  If you're on the fence about starting a boutique then I don't think this is the right business for you to step into at the moment. One thing you will have to come prepared with is hard work and a willingness to endure a lot of tough adversity. ~Best of luck

How to Find Wholesale Clothing Suppliers Online

How to Find Wholesale Clothing Suppliers Online

The world of wholesale clothing is an expensive one. You can find clothes going all the way from high-end designer brands to inexpensive knockoffs and everything in between on sites. But even with these options for finding a supplier online, it's essential that you do your research before jumping into anything headfirst.  How To Find Wholesale Suppliers There are numerous advantages of shopping wholesale clothing. Firstly, you will be able to buy in bulk so that the price per item becomes low. Secondly, it may take some time before customers demand certain styles again on store shelves - this means if they ever do come back into style later down the line, then you'll have enough stock from when these items were sold at their peak popularity. The first benefit is cost-savings which means getting better quality at lower prices. Another perk is ordering customized goods without sacrificing quantity. You can keep up with the latest fashion trends without breaking your budget.  Shop online for a variety of clothing brands to suit every taste and size. Finding a wholesale clothing supplier can be difficult, but with these simple steps, it will become easy. Know what you want: Find out what you want to buy from the wholesaler and make sure they sell that type of product. When you're shopping for a new product wholesale, make sure the store sells what type of item you want to buy. This way, there's no question about whether or not they have your desired inventory in stock before placing an order with them. Consider your budget: You should consider your budget for buying in bulk - most suppliers have low minimum purchase amounts or offer discounts when customers reach certain thresholds. You should consider your budget for purchasing bulk clothes wholesale, especially considering the many benefits. You will be able to buy more clothing at a lower price point with less hassle and time spent shopping around individual stores.  Compare prices between different potential vendors: When you're looking to buy clothes for your store, it's a good idea to compare prices between different vendors so that you can get the most bangs for your buck. When choosing between different potential vendors for tops in bulk or just one top at a time, remember that the cheapest vendor may not always be the best option, and higher cost doesn't necessarily mean better quality. You should also keep an eye out for hidden fees like shipping when considering which site is going to offer the most affordable price overall. Look at pictures provided by the vendor: A customer must feel that they can trust you to purchase from your establishment, so every item must be in good condition and well-made. If any clothing items do not meet this standard or cannot hold up under regular wear and tear, then these clothes need to go back to the manufacturer for an exchange due to their faulty workmanship. Check availability: When you buy clothes for your shop from any online wholesale clothing suppliers, it's essential to make sure that they have what you need in stock.

Let's go through each Wholesale Distributor: Distributors provide clothing sourced from other manufacturers. Distributors could be referred to as middle men. You might think these companies simply get a cut of the action by offering higher price goods, but this isn't always the case. Distributors offer unique benefits, like consolidating multiple brands in one shipment and offering cheaper clothing that they liquidate from clothing vendors. Only these sites seem to be the companies offering these unique lucrative deals. Manufacturers: Manufacturers or brands are the businesses that design and produce clothing.  Drop Shippers: Drop Shippers are specialized companies that purchase from brands a large amount of inventory and then ship these individually to your customers. Drop shipping has come a long way in the last ten years and offers an incredible opportunity to build a boutique with little to no capital.  Wholesale Showrooms: Have you ever attended a clothing show and walked the long aisles of brands soliciting their newest designs? Well that's what a wholesale showroom is but virtually. These companies and sites offer a place for boutique owners to view and purchase directly from all of their favorite vendors on one site. Top Ten Boutique Wholesalers 1.  Bloom Wholesale Bloom Wholesale is hidden gem. I friend told me about this site years ago as a place to find really great deals. Not only do they have some great finds but they ship fast and their shipping is capped at $9.95 for all shipments and orders.  Bloom is interesting in that they are one of only a couple companies that provide closeout deals. The bulk closeouts prices can be as low as $7.00.  Drop shipping is another service they provide, with drop shipping you can grab their pictures, sell the items and have Bloom ship them out.    2.  Mio Wholesale   Mio falls under the classification as a Distributor. Mio has been around for over a decade and their successful longevity speaks volumes to their great service.  The things I like about Mio Wholesale is you can get a lot of great brands and consolidate the shipping in one order, this will save you a lot of money and time. They only work with quality boutique brands and have great customer service. Price is moderate and discount codes are not offered. You get what you pay for with Mio and if you want to be sure to have a quality product for your boutique this is a great vendor.   3. Judson & Company   Judson & Company is family run manufacturer out of Alabama. They have been around since 1989 and they might hold the crown for the older manufacturer in our boutique industry.  I love Judson, they concentrate on all things accessories from hats, jewelry, scarfs, kimonos, bracelets, screen prints to some clothing. If your a boutique not maximizing sales with accessories then you aren't doing it right.  Their warehouse is in Alabama, so that central location means they can deliver wholesale items to your boutique sometimes within 1- 2 days! If you plan on brining in accessories to your boutique definitely give Judson a look.   4. Wishlist Wishlist Apparel is a young women’s contemporary manufacturer that specializes in staple classics. If there is a league of boutique brands, Wishlist might just reign supreme. They are one of the top brands in the boutique market and you can chalk this up to two reasons, quality and price.  Wishlist makes the top 10 list as the only wholesale brand  not because of special discounts, amazing customer service or any other perk but solely because their quality and trends are top notch.   5. KatydidWholesale   Katydid landed the last top five spot because they are an easy-to-work-with company that delivers great quality boutique clothing. Hear from them in their own words   "The apparel we offer is made for beautiful women who love to live life to the fullest. With so many styles at Katydid Wholesale, there’s something for everyone! We have the best women’s clothing for retail stores and boutiques of all sizes. Our women’s clothes and accessories are the perfect addition to help your customers fall in love with your store!"    6. Fashiongo FashionGo is likely the first virtual wholesale showroom to exist.  You might have seen FashionGo at a fashion event show or boutique gathering, they have a new partnership with the Magic show fashion event that makes them ubiquitous in the wholesale clothing world.  FashionGo is a marketplace that hosts thousands of individual wholesale vendors, brand and distributors. Since FashionGo is a one stop shop for everything what would be a reason not to shop with them?  Prices Prices can be higher shopping through FashionGo rather then going direct because of the commission fee's Fashiongo charges its vendors to use the website. Unless you go direct, there will always be a middle man :)   7. LA Showroom Like, LA Showroom is a wholesale marketplace that specializes in offering a huge assortment of wholesale clothing and accessories. They claim to also be one of the first wholesale marketplaces, so if anything we have them to thank for helping to radically transform the wholesale boutique industry. If you would like to register with any wholesale showroom is worth noting that you will need a business license, sellers permit and previous invoices with brands. Once you have all of that in place you can scroll through the endless pages of wholesale clothing vendors and distributors that will supply your boutique with more then enough goods to stock your shop.  Like Fashiongo, LA Showroom has commission fees charges to its vendors.    8. Faire The new girl on the block is Faire. This company is making waves in the wholesale boutique clothing marketplace by being the first site to offer 60 day terms. Their goal is to give the small boutique owner all of the same competitive advantages that a big box store like Walmart and Ross has.  Sounds great! But Faire has yet to convince and migrate a majority of the top USA wholesale brands and distributors to use its platform. The reason is simple, high commission fees. Faire has a high vendor commission fee. The cost of providing those wonderful benefits like 60 day terms for the boutique means the vendors have to raise their prices and thus you will pay more for the same clothing found on other platforms like Bloom or FashionGo. As it stands Faire has a large selection of wholesale clothing vendors and time will tell if their bet on 60 day terms is one that boutiques desire.     9. Wholesalecentral At Buywholesaleclothing my list of vendors and distributors is curated and condensed but if you're ever curious to see the whole list of wholesale vendors, Wholesalecentral has that for you. Wholesalecentral likely has every wholesale clothing and accessories provider in the world.  Not only can you browse the endless lists of wholesale suppliers but they do a great job of listing all minor and major fashion gatherings in the USA. In their words "Wholesale Central provides premium sourcing tools that help wholesale buyers find wholesale suppliers and products."   10. Orangeshine  Orangeshine is another great wholesale showroom on the market. It does everything right from attracting wholesale vendors and distributors with low commission fee's and provides an easy-to-use layout for easy boutique purchasing. There was a time when Orangeshine was my go-to wholesale marketplace because of its consolidated shipping. This was a great perk that only they offered but have since discontinued this great resource.  Why might you choose Orangeshine over FashionGo and others? This is their pitch.  "From an online marketplace with exponentially growing number of registered users, new users and purchases to professionally photographed product images while providing full customer service and order processing for buyers, we have everything you need to get your foot into the booming online business with minimal effort and costs."    Advice on utilizing online wholesale boutique sites There was a time not too long ago when everyone did their purchasing at fashion shows like Magic and the Off Price Show.  These shows still exist today but the advent of online wholesale shopping has made them somewhat obsolete for many.  With that said I always implore my ladies to go to at least one clothing expo a year and here is why. Attending a fashion show isn't really about purchasing clothing and perhaps it never was, its more about building connections and establishing relationships with not only the brands but also other boutique owners.  These invaluable relationships offer the support and advice you will need if you want to make it in this business.

Three Unavoidable Reasons to Buy Wholesale Boutique Clothing

Three Unavoidable Reasons to Buy Wholesale Boutique Clothing

Buying wholesale clothing online can be a tricky business. The quality of the clothes you receive will vary wildly, and there's no guarantee that you'll get what you ordered. However, buying wholesale is the only option to start a boutique business with minimum investment and earn maximum profit Three Reasons To Buy Wholesale Clothing  1. Buying in bulk saves money Buying clothes is a tricky balancing act. A great way to save money is by buying clothes in bulk. If you purchase more than one item at a time, the cost per article of clothing decreases because you are able to buy items that would normally be out-of-stock or unavailable for retail sale. On the one hand, you want to save as much money on clothing purchases as possible, it would be a prudent ideal to partner with a reliable wholesale boutique clothing store. This can help solve both problems because they offer competitive prices and styles tailored precisely towards their customers' needs. 2. You can sell the clothes you purchase at a higher price point The best reason to buy from wholesalers is that one can sell clothes at a higher price point and earn a decent profit. An attractive piece of clothing can be sold for a higher price point by adding details that are difficult to do. Consider taking it in or out, layering with an accessory at the waistline and hemming both sides so they hit just below your knee. With these additions, you'll have something worth investing more time into! 3. Buying wholesale is easier than shopping retail and online for boutique clothing Another reason is that buying wholesale is easier than shopping in retail and online for boutique clothing. The benefits of buying wholesale clothing can be found in the ease and convenience of one-stop shopping. Buying retail is a hassle, going to various stores for different types or sizes, while online you have to wait until it's shipped then deal with returns if necessary which makes things doubly inconvenient. If you have a small store, buying wholesale will allow you to offer more variety of styles and sizes without breaking your bank. With increased production rates, manufacturers are able to produce more goods which means lower costs per item. These are the reasons behind partnering with a wholesaler and buy clothes from them to lead a boutique business to success.

Top 3 Colors of Spring 2022

Boutique Blog – by Anna M

Top 3 Colors of Spring 2022

Top 3 Colors That Are Trending In 2022 1.) Denim  Blue is one of the top colors we are seeing early in Spring 22'.  The buzz word used is denim and this can refer to anything with a light blue tint. In the image below we can see the pairing or floral and blue which looks delightful. Rather than seeing a ton of Mint (as we usually expect in Spring) it appears it has been swapped out for a color just next to it on the color wheel.  2.) Lilac  This first showed up in Spring '21 and we think it will make its biggest impact in 22'. Anything with that light purple hue with pastel inspirations can go for Lilac or as described below, Lavender.  This color works on sweaters like the one imaged below and looks stunning laid over a ruffle dress. 3.) Fuchsia Diverting from the soft pastels, our third color choice for Spring 22' is the vibrant fuchsia. This eye-popping color can be worn across an array of styles including tops, tanks and dresses. An attention getter at heart, this color gives all the sparkle without the need for a print.

Top 3 Professional Tips to Create A Successful Boutique Business

Top 3 Professional Tips to Create A Successful Boutique Business

During the initial stages of starting a boutique owners often struggle with financial limitations. Therefore, thriving in the boutique business may seem an impossible task during this stage. However, with these pro-tips, one can easily create a successful boutique business with minimum effort. Top 3 Tip To Create A Successful Boutique  1. Find A Reliable Wholesaler Choosing an ideal wholesaler is the smartest move rather than designing the clothes on your own. There are wholesale dresses in USA that offer exclusive collections to match the taste of the customers. Firstly, one must choose a target customer group. It becomes a mess when people try to store clothes for all age groups, especially in the beginning. It’s better to choose a target customer group, understand their cloth preferences, and then search for a reliable wholesaler. A wholesaler allows people to buy exclusive collections in bulk without breaking the bank. Generally, they have an established network with all the trusted manufacturers. So, they can offer quality clothing at the lowest possible rate. So, a reliable wholesaler can easily lead a business to success.  2. Define Your Budget Limitations  There are several factors that determine the success of a boutique business. One can’t thrive in the industry just by buying in wholesale. Often, people start feeling overwhelmed as they partner with a wholesale distributor for running the clothing business. As there is a range of collections available at a great discount, business owners often don’t set any limitations to the budget. They buy excessively from these distributors but end up making losses. So, it’s important to set budget limitations before purchasing from these wholesalers. 3. Focus on Marketing  Marketing is everything in today’s time. Without marketing, there will be hardly any chances left for people to thrive in any kind of business. It’s because people won’t know about the business without an effective marketing strategy. A proper marketing strategy helps people to reach out to the target customer group and make them aware of this business. So, one must focus on marketing and invest more in it. These are the three tips one must apply for creating a successful boutique business.

Top 3 Trends of Fall 2021

Boutique Blog – by Anna M

Top 3 Trends of Fall 2021

Fall buying is upon us!  We've examined the charts and gathered the data and it's time to get an early look at the hottest trends for fall 2021. 1.) Button Jackets (Fleece and Denim) Oh my these are hot. Usually at this time of the year we see imports (jackets, coats, acrylic sweaters) bought up first, but even more so this year there seems to be a mass frenzy for import goods and fleece jackets currently reign supreme.You can see in the image below, this jacket reeks cool and cozy vibes.  You can never go wrong with fleece and customers are willing to pay $40-$60 to add one of these winter hugging garments to their wardrobe.   The below button down jackets have the same look and feel as the fleece but give the customer a hipper heavier material in denim and cotton.  2.) Plaid Plaid is always a hot seller in Fall but I'm seeing a lot of surprising early action in this trend more so then years past. Currently plaid jackets are doing amazing; long sweeping, pocket equipped button down plaid jackets are a can't miss.  Plaid ponchos, sweaters and blouses will also be an amazing hit. Gingham plaid will still be great for the midwest boutiques and the plaid design like the one imaged below can play in any region. These items can range from $30 - $60, the great thing about plaid is it's never considered a cheap trend style.  3.) Tribal Not only does fall bring plaid fever but it also make tribal the go-to print a top fall garments. Tribal ponchos and jackets like the one below are a can't miss but I also expect to see this print take over where the animal print left off last fall. Expect cardigans, color blocks, vests and blouses to adorn this exotic and flavorful print.  Below is a sharp example of a take on a tribal blouse. It just gives me the fresh vibes and I'm confident in saying your customers will likely feel the same.  We are really only one to two months into the fall pre order buying and I expect things to develop a bit more trend wise. However if the past is any marker for the future, the trends we see dominate in the first month of fall preview buying should hold strong through the season.  Happy shopping shoppers!

The best wholesale clothing distributors are the ones who offer you competitive pricing for both single items and bulk orders. How do you know if a distributor will be good for your business needs? There are many factors to consider, such as customer service, quality of product, and variety. It is also important that the company offers products at wholesale prices to match or beat any competitors' prices. If a wholesaler does not offer these qualities, it might not be worth doing business with them to save money on production costs, which could greatly hurt future sales potentials by giving customers an inferior experience when making purchases from their site certain items. Because they only carry stock in small quantities before selling out too quickly.  Do they have any special offers that may be beneficial? Choosing the right wholesale clothing distributor can seem like a daunting task. The most important thing to remember is that you are looking for someone who has your best interests in mind and will provide an excellent customer service experience - worth it. A distribution company should have all of these features, but people ask themselves when searching around if they offer any special offers or deals? To find out more about their incentives with clients, contact them today. Choosing the right wholesaler may not be easy; however, certain characteristics help determine quality, such as reputation and past performance.

Wholesaler or retailer: Know the difference

Wholesaler or retailer: Know the difference

Do you know the difference between a wholesaler and a retailer? If the answer is no, don't worry! You're not alone. The distinction isn't always clear to people who are new in the industry. In this blog post, we'll discuss what these terms mean so that you can make an informed decision about your future business endeavours. Who is a wholesaler? A wholesaler is a person or company that sells goods in large quantities to businesses. It can also be an individual who purchases and resells items, typically at a markup, for various reasons, such as the need to make more profit on low-priced goods.  A wholesale women's clothing business model relies on buying products in bulk from manufacturers and distributors at prices lower than retailers would pay. They will then sell these items to retailers with higher margins because they are buying them wholesale.  A typical example of this would be if you have an online store and want to buy something: You'd go through your favourite retailers like Amazon or Wal-Mart, but when you find out that the price is too high! The next step might be finding a wholesaler that can support your business and help you reach out to average customers. Who is a retailer? Retailers usually buy goods from a manufacturer, wholesaler, or other distributor and then resell them to the public. Large retailers such as Walmart and Target purchase goods in huge volumes from manufacturers or wholesalers through their stores with brick-and-mortar locations all over the country. If you are interested in getting into retailing but aren't sure which type of business is right for you, take some time to explore your options by determining what kind of retailer will best suit your needs. You also need to figure out the best wholesale women's clothing seller you want to choose. Whether it be online sales only or opening up an actual store near where people live, they can visit whenever possible. They should be able to provide you with timely deliveries and a variety of options to choose from. How to choose the best wholesaler from being a retail brand? Designing and manufacturing clothing is a multifaceted business. There are many factors to consider when starting your clothes line, but the most important one is figuring out where you want them made. You can either work with domestic manufacturers in your own country or overseas factories like China and Hong Kong, which will have pros and cons depending on what they specialize in making! After you are done deciding on the merchandise, the next thing should be your production capacity. We will always suggest you start small and increase gradually. This article has offered some insight into the differences between wholesalers and retailers. If you are looking for a new business opportunity, know that there is much to consider when choosing whether or not this type of enterprise may be suitable for your needs and wants in terms of lifestyle, finances, products/services provided, etc. We hope that our insights have helped clarify any questions you had about these two types of businesses so you can make an informed decision on which best suits your present situation as well as future ambitions.

Why Drop Shipping Can Save Your Boutique

Boutique Blog – by Anna M

Why Drop Shipping Can Save Your Boutique

What is one word that can encapsulate the struggle of a brick-and-mortar boutique and be a non-issue for a drop shipper? Answer, clothing rotation. In this blog posts let's take a look at the sole reason why drops hippers have a competitive advantage over brick and mortars. Why Dropshipping Could Be Your Best Choice Any boutique that exists today or has come before has experienced the rotation death spiral. This is where a boutique needs new product for new sales but can't get rid of pre existing product to free up cash for new product. The cycle can be viscous and continues until a boutique is out of business.  The great thing about drop shipping is that this is a non-issue, a drop shipper usually has more rotation and product than they need. With the popularization of drop shipping I've been noticing the success they have had in the transition periods of the market (The period of time when the season changes.) This would confirm my theory that the ability to have maximal rotation of clothing is benefiting drop shipping and hurting the traditional brick and mortar businesses. This is because while brick and mortars are putting on sales and trying to get cash back from previous season items, the drop shippers are already positing new seasonal trends and spending no unnecessary time trying to sell off merchandise that was slow to move. This is valuable information to utilize whatever position you have in the fashion market, but for brick and mortars this means adopting drop shipping to your arsenal can be a huge help.  Rather than sacrificing rotation and losing customers, drop shipping will allow any business to continue to market new products and trends coming right off the designers table.
