Is this the part where I write a disclaimer knowing how dangerous a click of a button can be once you start online shopping? Well, it doesn't have to be. I want you to think about what may be missing from your wardrobe after completing my task in my last post about how to 'Recover Your STYLE'. Here are some great tips to get you on your way to being a professional online shopper and think about the time you're saving.
Knowing the brand makes it easier to know your size straight away. You know what to expect when it comes to fabrics and fit. Even though this is the case always check the size guide of the garment you are purchasing. Always check the fabric content and washing instructions.
Look at the fit on the model. Knowing that you maybe long or short in the torso, legs or arms think about the fit on the model. Brands offer so many views of the products online that this makes it easy to see. I know my comfort zone for top lengths and wont wear them if they are too short.
If you're shopping on larger site such as David Jones or The Iconic its best to use filters to narrow down the search. This way 525 dresses becomes 24 if you select colour and style of dress your looking for.
Research the returns policy. Do they offer an exchange, credit or full refund within 14-30 days. Make sure they have contact details on their website so you can easily get a hold of them. Always keep the original packaging!

As a 'Personal Stylist', my job is to encourage people to start taking action and hit refresh, Once you take action, you can expect to start feeling more positive. You will start to feel better about yourself because you’re taking action. Small wins every day lead to great transformations mentally and physically. Then you will begin to CRAVE new STYLE habits because you LOVE the way it makes you FEEL.
Sounds easy? To some maybe, others may just need a little help which is why you have me in your lives!
Choose out 3 of your most favourite garments, be it a jacket, top, dress, jeans, blouse. Think of garments you're likely to wear in the next month.
Select from your existing wardrobe another piece of clothing of similar tone (eg: winter or summer colours) that you wouldn't normally wear together OR try pairing a complementary colour. (eg: nude, tan, rust is amazing paired with blue tones, OR green colours, either sage, olive or forest are amazing paired with pinks or deep berry tones.
Now that you have completed 3 new outfits try them on! If you need to tweak them, try not to go back to your same old look. Be adventurous and try on boots or shoes, scarves and even pair a handbag to complete the look.
This is a great way to work out what maybe missing from your wardrobe and you can even try wearing these looks for a coffee date now we are allowed out or the next school pick up! don't be afraid to take it up a notch and feel the spring in your step.
