Take 5 – Clothes Shopping Tips To Create A Wardrobe You’ll Love

clothes shopping tips

Fall is almost here, and soon you’ll need some layers to keep you warm.

Take a look at 5 of the clothes shopping tips I recently gave to Bedford Magazine  for their fall issue.

  1. Change stores: If you keep saying you have nothing to wear, it’s time to try another store.
  2. Buy color. See which colors make your eyes sparkle and your skin look healthy. Don’t keep hiding in black.
  3. Go for fit not size. You will get compliments when wearing clothes that fit the body you have –  not the one you used to have or wish you had. Trust me, I know all about that.
  4. Step Back From The Rack. People tend to buy more of what they already have. Try on clothes that do not look like something already hanging in your closet
  5. Don’t Be A Slave To What’s “In” Even if it is the color of the season, or the pant of the year, if the clothes do not work for your coloring or body type, they are NOT for you. It can be very aging when you try to follow a trend, regardless of whether it fits your body.

Just pick one tip to try, and I bet you’ll be happily surprised. If you need help, you know who to call, right?
Hint: ME!!

 

3 Shopping Tips To End Your What Should I Wear misery.

 

Hate Shopping For Clothes?

 

 

Would you or someone you know answer yes, to any of the questions below?    

1. Find yourself wearing the same few outfits over and over again?
2. Want to lose some weight before buying flattering and well fitting clothes.
3. Find shopping for clothes very stressful? 
4. Are you one of those women who hate shopping?
5. Feel that your body shape ‘issues’ are helpless?                        
6. Struggling with any of these issues for more than a few or more years? 

Good news: You are not alone, and you can break free from these often very depressing issues.

Bad news: You need to take action, stop making excuses, and start looking at yourself more positively.

I cannot begin to count, how often I hear one or all of the above from new clients. I also can tell you, that after I show her how beautiful she can look in the right clothes and accessories, she never feels bad about herself again.

Enough with the negatives.

Below are positive and effective steps you can start doing right away that will change your pattern of not treating yourself as well as you should plus starting to realize that you are totally capable of looking fabulous every single day.

1. Do not wear the same outfit twice in one week. Force yourself on this one.

2. Stop putting off getting nicer clothes than what you have been wearing, even if you do want to lose some weight. If it takes you months, years, and sometimes never to lose weight, why put off looking good now?

3. Go to a clothing store you don’t usually shop in, with the goal of finding just one well fitting and flattering piece. If you hate a particular body part, then ask the salesperson what label as clothes that work with that issue. Turn your “I hate shopping for clothes” into an adventure of exploration and fun.

I know which manufacturers make clothes for wide hips, shoulders, short legs, long legs, etc. So, if you try a pair of pants on and you hate how you look in them, it could very well be that the manufacturer does not make clothes for your body type.

As an example, Theory, a higher priced label, makes beautiful clothes designed to fit very straight body shapes. If you have any curves or bulges, then you most likely will look awful in their clothes and might get stressed and depressed. But another designer does make clothes that will fit and flatter you and then you will feel relieved and pleased with yourself.

So go ahead and break out of your routine and take a little time to look and feel good about yourself.

Note: Just for the record, I do not work with women who love to shop for clothes. They don’t really need me, and I find helping the woman who has lost the feeling good about her personal image, so much more rewarding and fun to work with.
