No Seller Fees For the First Time Ever 💥#ReverseBlackFriday

We’re flipping the switch this Black Friday. To encourage cleanout over consumption, we’re waiving ALL seller fees on new items listed from Friday, Nov 25 through Sunday, Nov 27.

#ReverseBlackFriday

Over 85% of textiles produced end up in landfills. In America alone, that amounts to about 81 lbs of clothing per person, yearly. With Reverse Black Friday, we’ve envisioned a fun way to keep fashion out of landfills and help folks earn extra money for the holidays.

This is the perfect time to do something about that pile of clothes you don’t wear anymore… the ones that you’ve been meaning to do something about for months. List any item on Curtsy from Friday, Nov 25 through Sunday, Nov 27 with no seller fees.

Questions about Reverse Black Friday?

Check out our FAQ below or send us an email at [email protected]

  • When is the promotion? You can start listing items for zero seller fees anytime on November 25. All items must be listed by midnight November 27th to have no fees
  • What are seller fees normally? Our seller fees are $1 + 5% of sale price + 2.9% payment processing fee
  • Are seller fees waived for all items? Yes, all items that are typically allowed on Curtsy are included in this promotion. You can read our Seller FAQ to learn more about what items we allow on Curtsy

5 Ways to Style Your New (or Old) Uggs

Uggs? Crew socks? Puffers? An Ugg campaign featuring our girl CHER?! ❤️‍🔥 This is sounding a lot more like 2009 and less like 2022, right? But don’t worry, whether you want to revive your decade-old Uggs or managed to get the new Ugg Mini II, Ugg Ultra Mini, Ugg Neumel, or platform slippers (Ugg Tazz, Ugg Tasman, or Ugg Disquette), we’ve seen it all at Curtsy and we are here to help you out.

Read on to see how to style your sweet sherpa kicks! We’re ranking these looks from dressed up to the most casual…

  1. Wide or straight legged trousers. Since we gave skinny jeans the kiss of death last year, we’ve been on the hunt for new ways to style our new favorite pair of trousers. Well, the good news is that the possibilities with Uggs are endless! Treat your trousers as you would with a good combat boot or your favorite sneaker: cuff your pants (show a little skin..or sock 😏) or flaunt the wide legged look by just letting them casually drape over the boot. This look works with any Ugg style.

    how to style uggs: trousers

  2. Denim. Take your favorite mom jeans or crisp white pair of denim and style them however you want with your Uggs. Similar to trousers, cuff ‘em, leave ‘em hanging, whatever you like. The fun part here is you can dress up your look with a button up and an oversized blazer or take the more casual approach with a hoodie and a statement coat.

    how to style uggs: with denim

  3. Leggings. Leggings? With Uggs? Groundbreaking. In all seriousness, this sounds like a no brainer, but dress up your Uggs with leather or wax-coated leggings or your favorite Gymshark, Lululemon, or Nike pair you snagged from Curtsy. Have fun with cool crew socks or a classic pair of socks from Nike. Throw on a cropped puffer or favorite wool winter coat.

  4. Flared yoga pants. Another comeback piece, yoga pants are no longer just for walking the dog or doing the downward dog. Style your Uggs and flared yoga pants with your go-to turtleneck sweater and an oversized blazer or a vintage crewneck and chunky gold jewelry. 🔑

  5. Sweatpants. This is a great way to continue the monochrome outfit look (remember all the neutral sweat suits you acquired in 2021?) and break up your look with Uggs. Tuck your sweatpants straight into the Uggs or layer them with crew socks. 🧦

    Did you catch our last Weekly Sale? 15% off all sweatpants and joggers. Catch it next time!

    how to style uggs: sweatpants

PS. Want to know how to clean your Uggs and care for them? Most of the recent styles will come pre-treated by Ugg directly but we’d recommend looking for a kit that has a cleaning AND weather treating solution. The kits with a brush and stain eraser are clutch. 💯 Now your Uggs are ready for all the elements!

3 Ways to Make Your Closet More Green 💚

The fashion industry is one of the most profitable industries in the world because it crosses global lines. 🌎 People use fashion to express themselves and to relate to different trends, pop culture references and friend groups so of course it produces a lot of waste!

The average person throws away 70 pounds of clothing per year which equals 13 million tons of waste just in the US! The rise of social media, influencer culture and  overconsumption has made way for new trends to come and go overnight. People’s closets are constantly growing and adding the newest piece to keep up with the times. The rise in clothing purchases has made the fashion industry a huge source of waste globally so we wanted to share our top 3 ways to make your closet more green!

girls if you like thrifting, download @curtsy and thank me later -@larissaguerra08

♻️ Thrifting

Thrifting is something that has always been done of course, but over the last few years, it has made its way to mainstream fashion in ways that no one would have expected! As more people become aware of the wasteful practices of the fashion industry, many teens and young adults have been starting to go thrift shopping to find ways to reduce clothing purchases. 

In New York City alone, 400 million pounds of thrifted clothing were tossed out in 2018 – now imagine that worldwide! There are so many perfectly, unused and gently used clothing items to be found by going thrifting so why not make a day of it with your friends! Trends always repeat themselves so you can always find some hidden gems at the thrift shops!

👗 Renting

We all love fashion but it is not possible for most people to purchase everything under the sun because it isn’t sustainable and we don’t have endless amounts of cash to get it all! Renting has been an amazing way to get some of the best brands and empty out your closet because you return the pieces when finished with them!

At places like Rent the Runway and Nuuly, you can rent designer pieces every month for under $100 and return them when you are finished! No need to purchase tons of clothes for special events, date nights or casual weekends when you can rent something and give it a long life by passing it on to someone else! And did you know that Curtsy started off as a renting app?

🛍 Shopping Second Hand on Curtsy

Of course we couldn’t talk about a green closet without mentioning secondhand shopping! Everything has become digital and so of course shopping has too. On Curtsy, you can find some of your favorite brands – with the tags still on!!! – at such a discounted price. There are weekly sales, you can get up to 70% off on some items, and you have a whole community on Curtsy where thrifting is made easy. The experience is super user friendly and the app is one big closet share! Happy Earth Month Curtsy gals! 🌎
