People always have a thing for fashion trends. However, fashions trends don’t work for all people. And just because a certain trend looks good on someone, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it will look good on you. So, how exactly do you make sure you are not spending money to be some fashion victim? These guidelines will help you with that:
Dress for yourself not for people. Do not take many people with you while you shop for clothes. Consult mirrors, not people. And make sure what you are buying suits your size, body type, skin color etc.
Learn and know what you are buying your clothes for. Are they for casual meetings or professional occasions? Are you wearing them for this season? Or are you planning on keeping them for the next few years? How about the material? Do you need your clothes to endure some rough handling? Or do you need them to be light and airy?
Shop smartly. Don’t just pick the first thing you like how it looks in a vitrine. Consider the colors and how they look on your skin. Consider the size and how the piece can complement it. Try to think whether you have or can buy the accessories that suit it. Think about the prices to and the difference between buying the piece online or from a store.
Don’t stress over shopping and take your time doing it. Shopping is supposed to be a stress relieving – not causing – activity. So look carefully for that wonderful piece that will accentuate your looks and bring you that thrilling feeling of victory.
Concentrate on the look rather than the brand. Don’t you find it silly to pay ten times what a piece is worth just because it is a brand?
