Clothes Shopping 101: Finding Good Quality Clothes
We all have our favorite stores or websites where we buy clothes, for example King Louie. But what if you find yourself at a mall and don’t know which store to go into? How do you know whether the clothes will fit, look good on you, and be within your budget?
First, you need to use the right shopping strategy for your body type. Are you tall and thin? Are you shorter, plus-sized or do you have a belly that hangs over your waistband? This is important because how we shop depends on our shape.
Next, determine what kind of clothing makes sense for where you spend most of your time. For example, if it’s summertime and very hot outside then lighter fabrics will be in style and comfort may be more important than looking trendy. If it’s winter and very cold out different materials would make sense as well as layering pieces so nothing feels too tight! Also consider whether buying used items makes any difference at all – this can save money but also help reduce waste by keeping clothes from ending up in a landfill.
After you decide on the best shopping strategy, go to stores that specialize in your type of clothing (e.g., Old Navy for relaxed fit; H&M or Forever 21 if it’s trendy pieces). Use this time as an opportunity to try new styles and figure out which clothes make sense for everyday life. Sometimes having someone else help can be very helpful when trying things on! If you don’t like something about how it looks then ask yourself why? Maybe there is too much going on with prints or colors, maybe you just feel uncomfortable because tying the halter top around your neck feels awkward – these are important cues from our body so pay attention to them! Lastly, once you have bought some items remember to wash them before wearing to get rid of chemicals that may be on the fabric.
