Have you ever gone shopping and been completely overwhelmed by ALL the choices? Nowadays purchasing even the simplest item can be complicated. But when you shop for clothes, you can whittle your way through the racks by answering five questions.
The other day, I had a hard time even picking out a multivitamin:
And when I go down the bread aisle, I sometimes have a panic attack.
There’s even BARE bread.
Or Dave’s EPIC EVERYTHING bread. (Nice arms, Dave.)
Sheesh, I even have trouble choosing lightbulbs: Soft white, warm white, or daylight LED?
But when it comes to clothes. There is a surefire way to shop, whether in a department store or online. All you have to do is answer these five important questions:
First ask this question: What style am I looking for (e.g., bohemian, classic, casual, romantic, business)?
After you have determined which style you want, answer the following:
- Is it a great color for me?
- Is it flattering for my body type?
- Is the print/pattern a good scale for me?
- Is it appropriate for my lifestyle and/or the event I’m shopping for?
If the garment meets the criteria above, then take it to the dressing room. If not, don’t waste your time on it.
It’s all a process of elimination. When you look for clothes, you can narrow down your choices so much that shopping becomes both a science and an art.
Truth be told, I’d rather shop for clothing than pick out a lightbulb. How about you?
Thanks for the shopping tips Sharon. I don’t like shopping for clothes because I get so frustrated.
