ASOS Top Shopping Tips

*Collaborative post.

ASOS (AsSeenOnScreen) are one of the leading worldwide online fashion retailers and target the 20+ market. We have compiled some of our top tips when it comes to shopping on ASOS to make your life as easy as possible.

 

Know Your Style

ASOS is a full of different styles, so before you go in, know what it is you are looking for otherwise you could get lost and be trying to navigate your way round the site for hours. ASOS is home to over 80,000 different products from a whole host of different brands.

Just make a note of different styles, and the specifics you are looking for. If you are wanting “black ripped men’s skinny jeans” then try that in the search bar, it’s likely to bring up the results you want straight away. You can use the tool bar to sort the range you are wanting, or to sort the different styles they offer.

Use Klarna Wisely

Klarna is one of the best things about shopping at ASOS. If you don’t know what it is, essentially it is a service used by ASOS and other brands to allow you to have 30 days to pay for the product your purchase. So, if you’re struggling towards the end of payday but really need that new dress, Klarna to the rescue.

You have to remember however to live within your means. If you know you’ve got a busy month next month, then maybe those £50 boots aren’t the best idea. It may feel like free clothes, but eventually you have to pay! If you’re struggling to understand how Klarna can benefit you, then you can get in touch with ASOS customer services team.

 

Sort by Size

There’s nothing worse than finding that perfect dress, and they’ve run out of your size. You can use the sort tool so that the results only show what is actually in stock in your size, to save yourself from the heartbreak.

The great thing with ASOS is they stock a whole variation of sizes, with a tall section and a plus-size section available if needed. It’s always a good idea to order a couple of different sizes to try on, as you can always send the wrong size back free of charge. You have a month to make sure you aren’t charged by Klarna.

Stick to your Budget

Not everyone can afford a new £100 pair of trainers, so make sure you know your budget before you go in. Maybe switch the range from low to high, starting with the cheaper items and working your way up. There really is some gold dust in the cheaper items, and it often brings up the sale items.

Don’t rule something out just because it’s cheaper than the budget you’ve set, you can either use it for an accessory or save it for next time!

 

Are you on Instagram? Follow #ASSEENATHOME

This is a great place to see what others are wearing, and you never know you might find the latest style that you can’t ignore.

It’s also a great way to see how a product looks before you actually go out and buy it. It saves the awkwardness of the product arriving, and it just doesn’t feel right.

They are some of our top ASOS shopping tips, if you take these on board before heading to the ASOSD website you are sure to find the outfit of your dreams.

Stress Free Shopping with Grandparents

Shopping is one of my favourite things to do. I enjoy shopping in the malls when I get the time. There is something amazing about going from shop to shop, looking at the pieces and accessories in flesh. I do most of my shopping online these days, but when I have the opportunity to pop into a mall, I go for it. I recently came across the Fenetic Wellbeing website and I was on the website for some time.

I shop with my mum a lot. We both enjoy it and the kids love any activity with her around.  Plus having an extra pair of hands with the twins whilst shopping is essential. It means I get to grab every item I planned to buy in peace, and not have to deal with the kiddies alone. It also means they get to spend time with their Nan, which is a win-win for us all.

Shopping with grandparents can sometimes be a bit of hassle for everyone involved. Especially when mobility is an issue. Which is why I am super excited to take part in this Fenetic Wellbeing Campaign. For those who have never heard of Fenetic Wellbeing, it is a mobility company who exist to provide customers with the right mobility products for their individual needs.

Spring time is here, which means it is finally time to spend my time outdoors. Which is why I am promoting ways elderly parents, grandparents and anyone with mobility needs can enjoy some stress free shopping.

Here are a few ways you can enjoy some stress free shopping with the grandparents this season –

 

Get a Mobility Scooter

If mobility is an issue, the best way to solve it is to get a good mobility scooter that would suit your needs. With a good mobility scooter, and buggies if needed, you are guaranteed to have a stress-free shopping session with the whole family happy.

 

Plan your day

I always like having a plan, so planning my shopping trip is important. I usually have a list of what I need to get so I don’t miss out any items. Also, I prefer large indoor shopping malls. Having all the shops under 1 roof makes it easier to move around and I don’t have to deal with the unpredictable British weather.

 

Go when it is quiet

I prefer shopping on weekdays in the morning when it is quiet. It is easier and quicker to move around when there are fewer people in the shops, so I target the quite times.

 

Make sure there are lifts available

Having lifts in the shopping malls are essential, especially with mobility scooters and buggies. I won’t bother shopping with the family in a mall with no lift.

 

Accessible friendly restaurants/cafes

We usually need a break midway into our shopping. Having accessible friendly restaurants/cafes available means it is easy to get in and out of a restaurant/cafe. So I make sure these are available before deciding on a shopping mall.

How to Shop for the Right Shirt

Shirts are wardrobe essentials for both men and women. And for this reason, many of us own quite a few shirts in various styles and colours. There is a wide variety of shirts to choose from in different stores. So it cam be tricky to shop for the right shirt. Here is how I go about it –

 

Shop for the right shirt by focusing on the material

Shirts come in a variety of styles and fabrics. And it can be confusing when deciding on which shirts to shop.

Style Tip – Opt for shirts with fabrics that are stretchy so you don’t lose it in the wash. But not too stretchy, or they will hug the lumps and bumps, you rather hide. It can be tricky to get this balance right. The only way you can be 100% of the fabric before you buy is to try it in the stores, so online shopping is a gamble when it comes to shopping for shirts.

 

Have a classic white shirt

A classic white shirt is a wardrobe essential, and everyone should have at least one in their wardrobe.  It can be worn to the office and dressed down with jeans for other occasions.

Style Tip – When shopping for the right shirt, it is best to go for good quality cotton for crispness. Anything less won’t cut it.

 

Opt for fashion shirts

Fashion shirts are still in vogue and I like them. I have a few in my wardrobe, and plan on adding some more to my collection. They are great for taking you from AM to PM with ease and style. Fashion shirts can be teamed up with skirts or trousers, to add some softness to a tailored look.

Style Tip – When shopping for fashion shirts, go for pieces that are lined to avoid see through issues.
