It is a dilemma to keep your hands off from spending more than the budget when you’re out shopping. It is natural for one to get impulsive and feel like buying pretty much everything they come across. However, it’s not a wise idea to get broke for just a moment’s satisfaction. At the same time, we don’t mean that you should stop shopping altogether. All you have to do is that shop smartly!
Now, how could you do that?
In the following blog post, we bring you seven great tips to look your best and be able to get some awesome short dresses without breaking that bank.
Draw a budget
First and foremost, sit and make a list of what you want. Once you have a listing, you will know how and where to allocate your money appropriately.
Decide an amount keeping in mind your money stash. And, once you have decided, no matter how tempted you feel, stick on that figure. It is the only key to success!
Have a thoughtful review
It is human nature to hoard a pile-up in their wardrobes. People have this weird concept of accumulating things they feel they are good to use later in the future. And, that ‘later’ never comes, or that stuff is something rarely used.
Speaking of this, next time you head out to purchase a short dress, make sure to have a quick mental rundown of how many you already own and in light of that, how should this new piece you buy look different. This review will also give an idea of what needs to toss aside.
Shop the classics
Always remember that a closet full of quality clothes will always make you look way better than a collection of cheap articles of clothing.
We, therefore, suggest to invest your hard-earned money in classics and see your fashion game turn stronger than ever.
What do we mean by classics?
Well, a classic might be a short dress in color back. Team the dress with some statement earrings or necklace.
Other than this, you can also add a pop of color by pairing it with an infinity scarf in colors of your choice.
Sell or donate
It is an absurd idea to have clothes that serve you no purpose at all to keep sitting in your wardrobe. Nowadays, it has become increasingly common to auction off one’s stuff in good condition on online buying and selling platforms. And we highly recommend that to you! It can get you some extra bucks, and you can shop till you drop.
It will be decluttering at its best as it will make some room in your closet. Similarly, you can also donate and contribute to a good cause this way.
Avoid shopping online
We would recommend buying in stores than shopping online. We do agree that shopping online from the comfort of your home is a plus point in addition to the deals. However, it can prove to be problematic sometimes. We believe online shopping works best for someone who has a sound knowledge regarding size and fabric.
Moreover, it isn’t inexpensive as most people think considering the shipping charges one has to pay. Furthermore, if the purchase does not fit or does not fulfill your expectations in general, it gets quite nasty as you got to pay the charges to have the item returned or exchanged.
Take someone along
If you are someone who cannot control your spending no matter what, it is best to take a friend or colleague with you. Having someone come along can help you in two ways. Firstly, you will have someone to suggest to you which is the best short dress amongst all. Secondly, ask the same shopping buddy to stop you from overspending. To sum it up, you would have someone that will hold you accountable right at the moment.
And of course, it is always fun to have someone you trust around for a great, fun-filled shopping experience.
Shop out of season
There are always going to be some happening, “end or out of season sales.” The stores, this way, rotate their inventory and gives you an ultimate chance of finding fantastic stuff on equally amazing prices.
For example, it is best if you buy short dresses in winters when stores carry out their “out of season sales.” As mentioned earlier, you can enjoy some great pieces at unbelievable prices. Moreover, you will still be with some extra bucks, which are another plus point.
We suggest that you sign up for store mailing lists to be the first person to know about new sales, discounts and other offers.
