We All Love Shopping, BUT…

 

 

Shopping for clothes used to be simple. We had our favorite, go-to stores where we could find that special something to wear for an upcoming event. We also had a sure sense of what styles and colors we liked.

But as we get older, our bodies change along with our lifestyles, and hence a wardrobe update is essential. A functional wardrobe includes clothing options for all occasions and should complement your persona.

Today there are tens of thousands of designers and stores to choose from, so your options are endless. It’s more important than ever to understand what you want to buy and how to go about buying it.

Here is a list of helpful tips based on my experience as a personal shopper:

1) Make a priority list of your immediate needs. Set some goals of what you will buy and when over a one-year period.

2) Try to shop when you are not rushed or desperate. It takes some thought to find all the right pieces to complete your wardrobe.

3) If you prefer to shop online, use the “sort and filter” options to narrow down what you are actually looking for. And be aware of the return policy before you purchase.

4) Read reviews before making a purchase. Check online reviews for specific brands or items you want. They can give valuable insights into the quality, fit, and durability of clothes, and help you make an informed decision.

5) Don’t shop sales only (this is something even I had to learn). Things go on sale for several reasons: overstock of inventory, leftovers from past seasons, damaged goods, unpopular trends, or simply, that it’s old stock. You deserve better!

6) Choose quality over quantity. Instead of buying cheap, low-quality items, opt for fewer but higher quality pieces. Investing in well-made clothes will save you money in the long run, as they will withstand regular wear and tear and last longer.

7) Try before you buy. Always try on clothes before making a purchase. This will help ensure a proper fit andavoid disappointment later. Don’t hesitate to walk around and move in the clothes to assess their comfort and functionality. This is where shopping in a brick-and-mortar store has its advantages.

8) Dress Comfortably. Wear comfortable, easy on/off clothing and shoes when you go shopping. This will make trying on clothes easier and more enjoyable, allowing you to focus on the fit and style of the items.

9) Try to shop alone or with someone who ACTUALLY WANTS to be there (like a personal shopper). This way you can avoid mistakes and impulse purchases.

10) Try to REALLY look at what you are buying. For example, the color may look different under normal light and under harsh store lighting. If you do not have time to try on the item, find a mirror and look at the item against your skin, up close and also far away. You’ll be surprised at how quickly this can either confirm your choice or change your mind.
