Lately I’ve really been looking for key pieces for my wardrobe. Clothes I can wear for a long period of time, like a timeless white shirt or black blazer. I used to buy things on a whim. Sometimes only because they where cheap. And a lot of clothes were only worn once and then found themselves on their way to the thrift store. So I want to share five tips that help me when I shop. If you can check of every point on this list then there is no doubt that you should buy it.
You have to actually like everything on that new piece you want to buy. If something throws you off or makes you question this new clothing then leave it, in the end it won’t be worth your money.
Find a price range you are comfortable with. Go shopping with a budget and it will narrow down your options.
Before you go on your shopping trip set yourself a limited amount of items your allowed to buy. That way you won’t go all crazy and your wallet will thank you later.
Go online window shopping first. Check out your favorite stores website and brows through their new merchandise. This will make your actual shopping go smoother and quicker. You know what you need, or want, and once you’re in the store you can easily ask a sales assistant to help you.
If you can’t stop thinking about it – buy it!
This is my best tip because if you really love something and still think about it after a week, it’s meant to be. So don’t hesitate to buy it once you can’t stop thinking about it.
