If you are on budget, or you are just not willing to spend a lot on shopping but you do enjoy it. Buy stuff off season. YES !! let’s say, we are heading toward autumn/winter. And all the summer clothes are on sale. Buy them for the next season. Or the other way around.
Tip # 6 :
Go for shopping alone. Yeah it does make a lot of difference. Take your time and go for shopping alone if you can. If you are thinking of taking your bf/gf or friend with you than don’t. A lot of people suggest that take a friend a long for opinion. No i find that when you take your friend with you, you’re more attracted toward doing fun shopping than getting what you actually want. However if you are going for fun shopping do it. If not Go Alone, take your time. Try everything on and decide by yourself what makes you feel better about yourself the most.
Tip # 7 :
Don’t be overwhelmed by all the stock there is in the store. When you first enter the store and you see so many clothes. You kinda get overwhelmed as for what to buy and where to start. Just stick with your style. Try the colors you are sure looks nice on you. And if you are looking for experimenting with new style. Take your time in trying room.
