Ok, we know how exciting it is to receive that new box at home and hang your findings with a label in the closet, but confess it: how many clothes have you bought impulsively and then you have never worn? We help you to shop in the best shopping mall. So, you should leave these habits.
Buy the trend, even if it does not convince you
Do you really look with a patent leather XL boots in blood red? Are you sure you’re comfortable with shiny socks? Let’s see, it is clear that we love fashion, mix and innovate but let’s be honest, sometimes the trends are VERY far from our taste and personality. In that case, abstaining is better than feeling ridiculous.
Do not review the shipping policy
You have discovered a brand that you love and that is on the other side of the ocean, but are you clear about the final amount including taxes and customs? Sometimes the shipping or fees may cost more than the garment itself, so review the conditions well before launching into the ‘shopping’.
Take something you DO NOT LOVE
How can you not buy that blazer for less than $10? And that coat at $20? Okay, the rebates of some brands ‘low’ are very, very tempting, but now seriously. If you need a basic black jacket, do you really think that purple cardigan will give you use? Two or three fleeting purchases like that equals one that really solves the closet, so next time resist, friend.
Do not review the return policy
Be careful with that ‘I already try it at home and I decide’ because there are garments that cannot be returned, and we do not just talk about underwear … also some accessories, party clothes, headgear, look before!
Make an investment without thinking it through
If you have decided to destine that peak of your savings to the purse you always dreamed of, congratulations, but beware! Think well which is the model that you will use the most, the one that will last forever, and the one that will continue to be revalued over time. Look at the conditions of purchase, return, guarantee … and do not buy it lightly. Remember all that it cost you to save for him!
Buy on impulse
You arrive home after a long day in the office, turn on the computer and start the ‘wine moment’: that moment in which women relax and pull the credit card to give us a break with our online purchases. Yes, we know that you deserve it but, do you really need and want that item or do you just want to spend and give yourself a whim? Ahem..
Do not combine what you already have
There are more possibilities in your closet than you imagine. You probably always end up wearing the same tops with the same jeans, or inevitably joining that dress to those shoes, but … what if you saw your wardrobe with other eyes? Try to let a friend combine your clothes, sure it does differently to you and gives you new possibilities. Take advantage of the galleries of street style, there you will find a thousand ways to take what you already have but with a ‘twist’. Reuse!
The infallible rule
Would you wear it today to go out and have a drink with your friends? If the answer is no, maybe you’re buying because it seems like a bargain, on impulse or because you think you’ll find use someday. Do not kid yourself, if you do not feel like putting it on today, you may never want it.
