Catherine Woolfe, marketing director at CollectPlus says, 'January is the perfect time to declutter your wardrobe; our research shows that the number of people searching for specific items varies drastically depending on time of the year.

'Taking advantage of seasonal trends means you can drive more people to your listing, which in turn is likely to increase the final amount offered. In this case, it is definitely better to take a tactical approach to selling your wardrobe.'
