IT'S SUMMERTIME

“FASHION HAS TO REFLECT WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU FEEL AT THE MOMENT, WHERE YOU’RE GOING”

PHARRELL WILLIAMS






SUMMERTIME IS BEGINNING SO BRING ON THE TRENDS OF THE BEADS, THE SPARKLES, THE VIBRANT AND BRIGHT COLORS, ALL THOSE STYLISH WHITE CLOTHING, THOSE COMFY OVERSIZED TOPS, THOSE FLORAL FEMININE DRESSES (IN MINI/MIDI/MAXI), THE CUT-OUTS (TASTEFUL), AND PLATFORMS ETC.












SO, MY QUESTION TO YOU, IS IT TIME TO UPDATE YOUR SUMMER WARDROBE?

PEROUSING YOUR CLOSET, YOU MIGHT FIND THAT SOME OF YOUR CLOTHES ARE TOO SMALL, OUTDATED, OR COMING APART DUE TO TOO MUCH WASH/WEAR. IF SO, IT MIGHT BE TIME TO UPDATE YOUR SUMMER WARDROBE. HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO CONSIDER:







1. FIRST THINGS FIRST, CREATE A BUDGET. I MUST ADMIT, I DON’T ALWAYS START OUT WITH A BUDGET WHICH GETS ME IN TROUBLE AT TIMES WHEN SHOPPING BECAUSE LIKE ME, YOU MAY TEND TO OVERSPEND.


2. ONCE YOU GO THROUGH AND EDIT YOUR CLOSET, YOU WILL BECOME CLEAR IN WHAT ITEMS YOU WILL NEED TO UPDATE/SHOP FOR SINCE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THOSE ITEMS THAT YOU MAY NEED OR A FEW TRENDS THAT WILL ENHANCE YOUR WARDROBE.


3. WHEN EDITING YOUR CLOSET, DON'T FORGET THAT IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT TO ALSO REPLACE OR ADD SOME STAPLE PIECES TO YOUR WARDROBE. I.E. CLASSIC BLAZER, BOTTON DOWN WHITE SHIRT, LOAFERS, OR LITTLE BLACK DRESS.


4. BE PREPARED TO KNOW YOUR SIZE SINCE SIZES CAN VARY BASED ON DESIGNERS, VARIOUS STYLES/CUTS AND FROM STORE TO STORE EVEN WHEN SHOPPING ONLINE. IN ALL HONESTY, YOU MAY FIND THAT YOU WILL HAVE DIFFERENT SIZE MEASUREMENTS BASED ON THE DESIGNER, STYLE OF CLOTHING OR STORE YOU SHOP. NOW WHEN SHOPPING VINTAGE CLOTHES, REMEMBER THESE CLOTHING ITEMS MAY HAVE A SMALLER FIT.

TIP: YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR MEASUREMENTS IN YOUR PHONE ETC.


5. WHEN SHOPPING IN PERSON OR VIA ONLINE, YOU SHOULD PILE

R IT ON REAL THICK WITH CLOTHES SINCE YOU CAN ALWAYS NARROW YOUR CHOICES DOWN LATER WHEN YOU’RE READY TO PURCHASE.


6. DON’T BE AFRAID TO TRY ON CLOTHING ITEMS WHEN SHOPPING IN PERSON. YES, IT WILL ADD ADDITIONAL TIME TO YOUR SHOPPING EXPERIENCE BUT YOU’LL THANK YOURSELF LATER BECAUSE IT WILL DEFINITELY HELP YOU AVOID THOSE POSSIBLE RETURNS.


7. SINCE YOU ARE TAKING A MOMENT TO TRY THINGS ON, DON’T BE AFRAID TO STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND MAYBE TRY ON VARIOUS STYLES OF CLOTHING OR COLORS THAT YOU’RE NOT USE TO WEARING. YOU MAY FIND THAT HIDDEN NUGGET THAT COULD EASILY ADD SOME ADDITIONAL STYLE/FLAIR TO YOUR CURRENT WARDROBE.


NOTE: SOMETIMES WE MIGHT THINK A STYLE DOESN’T WORK FOR US BUT IT’S GOOD TO TAKE A MOMENT TO TEST IT OUT. YOU MAY FIND THAT IT LOOKS GOOD ON YOU OR FITS YOU VERY WELL.


8. WHEN UNSURE ABOUT AN ITEM(S), SEE IF YOU CAN PUT THE ITEM(S) ON HOLD. TAKE SOME TIME TO THINK ABOUT IT AND IF YOU ARE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT, YOU CAN THEN GO BACK AND PURCHASE IT.
