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.

OOTD: Casual Style

I took these photos the other day in London. The weather was nice and I was in the mood for some outfit photos. I am loving the casual style look this summer. I find it dead comfy and so easy to style. It literally takes me minutes to put an outfit together, and as a busy mum of 2, every minute counts.

I need my outfits to be totally comfortable, but yet very stylish! The kids are on summer holidays for the next few weeks, so that means we are super busy, trying to make the most of what we have left of summer (weather permitting), and juggling all sorts. Life is incredibly busy at the moment, but I won’t have it any other way.

 

How to Rock the Casual Style Look

Here are 2 style tips I stick to –

 

Focus on the Accessories

Keep everything else cool, and focus on the accessories. In my case, I am drawing all the attention to my sandals and my sunnies and it works. For you to get the Casual Style look right, your accessories have to do the talking. So scarves, sunnies, hats, footwear, bags, should be the focus, and not the actual outfit. And not all at once. I see some people rocking their accessories collection all in 1 outfit. That is not a good look.

Stick to a maximum of 2 colours

For you to get the casual styling look right, you should stick to a maximum of 2 clothes (not counting black or white). Anything more would be a little too much for a casual look. I would also avoid colour blocking for a when it comes to nailing a casual style, and I rather opt for monochrome colours as they are safer and easier to style casual.

How to Find Bargain Fashion & Skip the Junk

Everyone wants to look great! There’s really no doubt about that. But when you’re operating on a tight budget, you’ll need a lot of creativity and keen skill to find the best pieces at a bargain. That is why it is important to learn the ways of how to find bargain fashion & skip the junk.

The good news is that the options available for the fashion conscious is unlimited. There are so many places you can find the best bargains when it comes to fashion items. The only thing that you need to make sure you do is to focus.

The key to finding the best fashion bargain is to do your homework before you even start shopping. Here is just how you can do it.

 

Go through your wardrobe and have a clear definition of your style

Most times when you go shopping you go there with no clue as to what you are looking for. In the end, you buy things that neither fit you, nor appeal to your style. The worst of it all is that you spend a lot of money on a piece or an accessory that you’d probably never wear.

The best way to go bargain shopping  is to go through your wardrobe before you even think of going shopping. Take a mental note of what exactly you need and the true definition of your style. This will give you a clear definition of what exactly you are meant to look for when you go shopping.

 

Bargain fashion shop during off-season

Like I mentioned in the How to Look Stylish on a Tight Budget post, shopping during off-season is the way to go. Shopping during the off-season gives you a variety of choices to make. The only thing is that you’d probably have to wait for the coming season to actually wear the clothes. That means that you need to make sure you plan ahead before you do your shopping during the off-season, but it is definitely worth it. Shopping during the off-season opens you to quality clothing at discounted rates. You end up buy high quality clothing at a really low price.

 

Scout for coupon codes

Yes, there are coupons codes for quality and stylish clothing. These coupons give you the clothes at a discounted rate, saving you a lot of money, so they are worth looking into.

 

 

 

Find out when your favourite store will stock new merchandise

This will require that you go undercover, well kind of. Clothes stores stock regularly at certain times during the month. If you want to get bargain fashion, then you need to keep up-to-date with when they actually get new merchandise. When the store gets new merchandise, the old stock gets pushed to the back of the store and their prices drop considerably. This gives you access to quality, yet cheaper clothing.

 

Check out clearance stores for bargain fashion

Contrary to what some people think, you can actually find a lot of stylish clothing items from clearance stores. You may even get a chance to see a couple of designer outfits. The best part of it all is that they come at affordable prices, making you look stylish on a budget.
