5 Tips to Wardrobe Shopping
by Barbara Myers
Shopping can be a pleasure or a chore. However you look
at it, use these five tips to be an effective and organized
1. Dress well. In order to spend less and buy wisely,
dress up in comfortable clothes. It's the same concept
as going to the grocery store on a full stomach.
2. Shop with a plan. Know exactly what you need and how
much you can spend. Write it down. Create a budget.
3. Keep an ongoing list of needs in your closet. As you
dress each morning, make notes of specific items you need
to complete outfits such as a wider, brown belt or a white
tee with a v-neck.
4. Before you make a purchase ask yourself, "Does
this match my wardrobe in terms of color, style and price?
Is this on my needs list? How versatile is this item?
How many ways can I wear it?"
5. Shop first at high-end mass merchants, outlet malls,
and off-price stores for basics such as tees, shirts and
pants. You'll then have more money for seasonal updates
such as jackets or accessories.
