1 – A list:
Before you leave the house, have a wardrobe clear out and see what items you’re missing. Make a list and take it with you to the shops to focus your mind on things that will work with your existing looks.
2 – Think ahead:
Sale shopping is brilliant, but so is new season fashion, which will come around sooner than you think! Before you head off, divide your shopping budget so that you’ve got some to spend in the sale and a little left for any new season purchases you might want to make. And think ahead to the next season, it may be winter right now but spring/summer is only around the corner, so check out some warmer season items in the sales too.
3 – Shop classics:
As well as buying what you want to wear now, think about timeless pieces. A statement coat that’s classic in style will get worn again, so that’s an ideal sale purchase.
4 – Experiment with your style:
If there’s a colour or style you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t been brave enough to, the sale is the ideal time to do it at a fraction of the usual cost.
5 – Shop Online:
If you shop online then it’s easier to shop around as well as compare prices in a number of stores. Not only that but you are more likely to find your size and you will also save yourself time by not joining the huge sales queues. I find you have a lot more control when you shop online and are unlikely to make an impulse buy.
