We love to shop as much as we love finding a bargain, whether it is on the high street or online. But it is that love for shopping that often gets us in trouble because once we start we cannot stop.
With the new season upon us and the summer sales a big temptation we will be hitting the shops and filling up our closets with all the newest and latest trends and summer sale bargains. But many times we end up spending much more money then what we budgeted for and ends up with an overflowing wardrobe of things we do not need.
So before you hit the shops, here are a few tips to shop efficiently and to create stylish outfits saving you money and time.
Start by shopping online, make a list of all the new season items that you like or want to buy. Then shop around, you will find that many of the online shops like Romwe, Choies and Shein have similar pieces at different prices.
Buying pieces that are a bit more expensive, shop for it in-store that way you can try the items on and get a feel for how it looks on you. Sometimes online photos can be really inaccurate, so shopping in-store allows you to touch the fabric, look at its movement, and see how things fit on your body.
Save money and time by making a list of what you want and where to buy it. This saves you from walking around all day going from one shop to the other and “impulse buying”
Three key points to remember;
• Shop your style personality
• Shop your body shape
• Shop your colours
Before you step into a store ask yourself;
Does this shop offer items that suits my style personality? If you are more of a stiletto and bodycon dress kinda girl, then GAP is defiantly not the store for you
Does the shop offers items that suits my body type? The great thing is that now most shops offer clothes that suits all body types from petite, to curvy.
Does this shop offer items in colours that suit my colouring? The bigger the store, the more chance you have of finding your items in colours that suits your colouring.
