If the thought of hitting the sales leaves you feeling wiped out, check out our simple do’s and dont’s to help you get the most from your sale shopping experience..
- Dress appropriately, shopping can make you hot so dress in layers that are easy to take off and put back on.
- Consider having items altered – if you have spotted your dream dress in a size too big, a seamstress may be able to work wonders and won’t charge too much.
- Plan what you are going to buy and think forward to the next season, while you may not want jumpers today, in three months you will!
- Shop online, many retailers, including Shoe Zone, have web exclusive items!
- Stock up on basics such as vests, underwear, tights and sleepwear, as these items are less trend driven they will be wearable for a long while.
- Take a chance, sales are a great way to try new looks!
- Buy it just because it is in the sale, if it is just going to sit in your wardrobe for years it is a waste of money.
- Buy it with the intention of slimming down to fit in it; it will only add pressure, best to treat yourself to something you love when you reach your target.
- Forget the accessories! The right necklace or handbag can complete a look, so stock up and plan accessories to match various outfits.
Finally, when hitting the sales, make sure you know what the rules are for each store when it comes to returning items and wherever possible try things on before you buy, to avoid having to make another visit to the store if they do not fit.
Happy bargain hunting!
