It's that time of year when great new fashions have hit the stores, and you'll no doubt want to snatch it all up. But before you do, some of my top shopping tips to consider...
1) Ignore the numbers on the tag. You need to take at least 2 sizes of the same item into the change room with you because different designers, styles, and materials will affect the sizing.
2) Do a proper wardrobe audit at home, and make a list of what you really need in order to avoid impulse purchases.
3) Shop alone. This may sound boring to those of you who choose to use shopping as a bonding time with your friends. But the truth is, you know what you like and what looks good on you. Your friends are well meaning, but they can often accidentally steer you in the wrong direction because of their personal tastes...instead of considering what really works for your personal style and body shape.
