When you were a kid, the countdown to summer was the best part of the year! Now as an adult and reseller, prepping for summer means sourcing the perfect products for your shop. Check out what’s sizzling this season and keep your customers stocked up with the top trending categories of summer 2021.
Apparel & Accessories
Lucky for us this summer, the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions will be lifted in time for outdoor fun. As everyone starts looking for “real” clothes that make a fashion statement, the Apparel & Accessories category will be a perfect first stop for sourcing.
Dresses, shorts, skirts, and blouses are summer wardrobe-essentials. According to Cosmopolitan, these items in pastel shades will be trending this summer. These light, eye-catching colors work for all bodies, making them accessible for all your buyers and versatile for any style. If you want to learn how you can dress your mannequin to make your listing more appealing, or how to pair these soft-colored styles, Elle Muse has got you covered.
High-waisted trousers/pants are also a hot commodity this season. This ‘80s throwback look has made a strong comeback. Even Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, knows that this look works for a semi-formal or casual day out! Crop tops can also be dressed up or down and pair well with these trendy pants. Throw in some stylish accessories and you’ll have the perfect outfits available to your fashion-forward customers.
Health and Beauty
Summer 2021 is just around the corner and your buyers are planning to look their best while enjoying fun in the sun. Help them look flawless while driving sales by sourcing from the Health and Beauty category.
Makeup will never go out of style, but the trending look this season is the roaring ’20s. Harpers Bazaar notes that this style is back and better than ever, with bold lips, highlighted cheekbones, and a complete glam look. Focus on lots that carry beauty products and you might just score the perfect items to create this iconic look for your customers.
Skincare is also top of mind as everyone returns to a natural skincare routine. There is a high focus on finding the right cleanser, hydrating serum, and moisturizer specifically. For those interested in refreshing their skincare, the perfect find may be in your BULQ box. Our Health and Beauty liquidation lots include a little bit of everything to effortlessly help you meet your customer’s needs.
Similar to any other season, there are specific items tailored to the warm weather and your buyer’s needs for summer. Pro-tip: you can find hidden gems and specialty items in our General Merchandise category.
When sourcing this category, you can source items like vacation essentials. This includes beach towels, pool toys, water bottles, water guns, games, and much more. Since they’ll likely fly off the shelves this year, stock up on these hot ticket items ahead of time to make a big splash in your sales.
Now that people can be closer together and hold larger outdoor gatherings, outdoor furniture and additional backyard accessories will be in high demand for anyone ready to host the neighborhood BBQ. Backyard must-haves, including inflatable pools, outdoor lights, and lawn games to name a few, can be found in either BULQ General Merchandise or Home & Garden liquidation pallet. Shopping early for these cases and pallets will help you score a sweet deal and get your customers what they need at a reasonable price!
Summer sourcing is heating up and these top summer trends for 2021 will help you stock up on the items your customers are craving. Plus, our team at BULQ is always here to help you get started or answer any questions on seasonal reselling.
