Since spring is in its full swing, so as with spring fashion rollout, with so many clothing retailers wooing you with the latest stylish and beautiful clothes for play and for work. It can be daunting and challenging buying a new set of spring wardrobe especially when you do not have unlimited funds. In order to avoid compulsive buying, ending up unnecessary clothes collecting dust in your closet, allow us to help you shop smart. We have interviewed several personal shoppers and we sorted out important points we can share with you to help you choose the best outfit this spring without hurting your budget.
First, know what are your needs and priorities, and once you have figured these out, invest in simple and versatile pieces that can work for the office and can be paired down with a dress for post-work outings. Set your goal depending on your budget to match new clothes your existing clothes, those that can be worn regularly, than investing on trendy clothes or splashy prints but are not wearable regularly. It is good to have a base wardrobe, something classic like a black skirt, pants and other items of the same fabric and color, to allow you to mix and match. Once you have the basic set, then you can use the leftover in your budget to buy more expensive and stylish pieces. It is important to invest in quality materials to make sure you have pieces that will last forever and are comfortable to wear. Good quality clothes may sound expensive but it saves you cash in the long run because you are prompted to take care of them so they last longer. Store promotions may include vouchers such as Forever 21 coupons and other discount gimmicks you can take advantage buying high-quality clothes at a cheaper rate. Invest in non-synthetic fabrics like cotton, silk and cashmere because they tend to last season after season through washing and wearing.
As much as possible resist trends and fads and create your won style because fashion trends can be dangerous when it comes to shopping with a tight budget, allowing you to spend more than what you originally planned. It is also a good idea setting up a different e-mail account for shopping or consumer promotions so you are always on top of sales, thus saving you so much money. Social media plays an important role in information dissemination or marketing, so it is a good idea setting up a separate account for social media to be able to follow fashion bloggers, stylists, retailers, clothing dealers, and manufacturers, for you to know the latest trends and offers in the market today. It is worth a good investment splurging sometimes to quality and beautiful items such as a flowy dress or a pair of sandals that really caught your attention, most especially if you think this would bring out more of your confidence.
