A Guide to Shopping
Have you ever go shopping buy a lot of clothes only to find out that you don’t like it very much or you can’t incorporated it to different outfits? Do you find yourself wearing a piece of clothing just once and then shove it in the closet that is full of clothes you will never wear outside of your house?
Yes, we are all guilty of this. However there are many ways to prevent this.
Here are my most useful tips on how to shop:
1.Think first: The most important rule is to think before you buy! Before buying an item you should picture what you would wear it with. You should think of at least have one outfit you can make with the item. If you can not think of an outfit then don’t buy it. Impulse shopping is how you get your wallet empty.
2.Write a list: Write a list of what you actually need. Do you need more shirt or jean or both? Write it down! This will give you a clear idea what you need when you are at the store. By making a list it will save you time and the headache of just browsing the aisle not knowing what you really need.
3.Basic clothes: Basic clothes are clothes that you can wear with almost anything. For example, a black tank top or a white t-shirt. It is always a good idea to stock up on the basics. This will help you to make outfits.
4.Figure out your style: Knowing what you like and dislike can save you time and money. However, don’t be afraid to try on something new! You never know what you like without trying it first.
5.Treat yourself: If there is something you have desired for a long time but didn’t buy it because it’s too expensive or you feel too stupid buying it, Buy it! Its okay to treat yourself once in a while. If you want that cute chanel handbag or that stylist louis vuitton.
6.Check for damages: Before you go to the register check the item for damages. Is it dirty? Is it missing a button? Is there a hole somewhere? It’s a sad feeling when you make a plan to wear only to find out it is damaged.
7.Shop at different stores: Do you only go to the same story every time you shop? Don’t limit yourself, go to various of stores. Going to different stores is a great idea because you never know what you are going to find. You might find somethings that you love. You may even fall in love with a new store.
8.Shop online: Shopping Online isn’t the same as shopping in the actual store but they sometimes have more discounts and have more items available online then the physical store. Plus you don’t have to leave your house or wait in line.
9.Try on the Clothes: There is a reason why stores have a fitting room! Try your clothes on before you leave the store. Trying on clothes is a great way to see if the item looks good on you and if you would actually wear it. You can also see if you have the correct size for you.
10.You can always return it: In the end you are bound to leave the store with an item that you really love only to realize a few days later that you don’t really like it. It’s totally okay. We are always changing our mind. The good news is that you can return it! So alway keep those receipts!
