3 Ways to Avoid Impulse Shopping

Struggling with impulse shopping? Here are the things you need to do –

Don’t shop when you feel stressed

If you are dealing with any emotional issues, it is best to stay away from shopping completely until you start to feel like yourself again. Research has shown that our brains react differently when we are stressed or dealing with emotional issues, and these changes in the brain cause us to make reactionary decisions instead of thoughtful ones.  If you have to shop when you are feeling low, take a break and ask yourself if you would buy the item(s) on a different day. This question would allow you to reassess the situation to ensure you are making the right purchase.

Have a budget and stick to it

This sounds easy but many of us shop without a budget and this is when it becomes tricky. It is important to have a budget and stick to it, that way we don’t get carried away while shopping and overspend. Having a budget also helps in making sure we stretch our money even more because when we have a budget we tend to look for sales and discounts to get more for our money.

Shop online

Online shopping is a great way to avoid impulse buying because we only search for items you want and buy them. You won’t have to go through aisles and aisles of tempting products when shopping online and that is one of the main reasons why it is such a great idea to shop online. Plus, shopping online is also super convenient. I don’t have to physically leave the comfort of my home to get what I need which is amazing.

Incorporate Different Colours And Patterns Into Your Wardrobe

One way to diversify your style is to experiment with different colours and patterns. Instead of sticking to the basics, try adding some brighter hues or bolder prints into the mix. Not only will this help you stand out from the crowd, but it will also give your wardrobe a more unique and exciting look.

If you’re not sure how to incorporate different colours and patterns into your wardrobe, start by picking one or two key pieces that you can build your outfit around. For example, if you find a pair of printed pants that you love, try pairing them with a solid-coloured top and some simple accessories. From there, you can experiment with different colour combinations and prints until you find a look that you love.

Mix And Match Different Styles

Another great way to diversify your wardrobe is to mix and match different styles. Instead of sticking to one particular look, try mixing and matching different pieces to create a unique style that’s all your own. For instance, you could pair a bohemian blouse with a pair of ripped jeans and some edgy jewellery. Or, you could mix a preppy cardigan with a pair of distressed shorts and some funky sneakers.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to mixing and matching different styles. Pairing different styles can also help you create a more versatile wardrobe that can be worn for various occasions. In addition, mixing and matching different styles can also help you save money in the long run.

Add Some Statement Pieces

Statement pieces are a great way to add a touch of personality to your wardrobe. Whether it’s a bold piece of diamond jewellery, a colourful scarf, or an interesting pair of shoes, adding one or two statement pieces to your outfit can make all the difference. Not only will this help you stand out from the crowd, but it will also help you express your personal style.

When choosing statement pieces, it’s important to pick items that you love and feel confident in. If you’re looking for a new favourite statement piece, consider a pair of diamond earrings or a diamond pendant. Before making the purchase, ensure that you read a review about the purchase you want to make. For example, this Blue Nile review will give you all the information you need to know before buying diamond jewellery from the Blue Nile or any other jeweller. Statement pieces are a great way to add personality to your look.

In conclusion, these are just a few tips to help you diversify your wardrobe. By incorporating these tips into your wardrobe, you can create a unique look that’s all your own. So start diversifying your wardrobe today!





 



 

How fashion shopping will look like post lock-down

I do most of my shopping online and I have done so for many years. It is a lot easier for me to shop online and have my items delivered. I am still learning how to drive, so moving around isn’t the easiest. However, even if I could drive, I would still prefer shopping online. Going from shop to shop is draining even when I am fashion shopping alone. So my shopping life won’t change at all post lock-down. I will continue shopping online whenever I can. However, for those who love shopping in the stores, window shopping will change once the shops open here in the UK. I have gotten a few emails from various stores and I can picture the changes already. Many people have taken to online shopping as expected, and I believe the demand for online shopping will carrying on increasing even after the restrictions have been lifted because of the ease and convenience.

No changing rooms

Changing rooms may likely not be back in most stores post lockdown for many reasons. It would be harder adhering to social distance rules with changing rooms. I was never a fan of changing rooms. There is a whole post about how I hated using changing rooms back in the day. So I won’t be missing this hight street feature when it becomes unavailable. One thing I wonder about is how returns will be carried out post lock-down.

Hand cleaning stations

In some of the emails I got, hand cleaning stations will be introduced all over the stores. There will likely be a hand cleaning station at the entrance of every store and all customers will have to disinfect their hands before shopping.

Limit to number of customers in the stores

There will be a limit to the number of customers that will be in a store at every given time. This should be expected to stick to the social distancing rule or it will be impossible to shop the sales rack for example and keep your distance.
