Summer is coming. All the shop windows sporting sales signs are finally up with offers you just can’t resist. All we want to do is go hunting for the desired trend of the season. But before you start shopping for the season, keep in mind these key points to make the best of the sales.
Make a wish list: You know your style better than anyone else. Before going to shop and picking up any random piece that will just rot in a corner of your wardrobe after wearing once, make a wish list for things that you want!
Get on the mailing lists: Signing up to the mailing lists of your favorite sites will inform you about sale previews, insta-sales and offers.
Don’t buy trend items blindly: A bright purple blouse with sequined collars will likely be a one-time wear item. Check for pieces you can wear throughout the year.
Pre sales discount markings: Many stores tag items that will go up for sale beforehand by numbering them. If you see a marked piece, note down its whereabouts and come get it later for half the price.
Changing room treasures: Many customers try on pieces with the best prices, and then leave it in the dressing room. Go through the collection at least once to check if there’s something you like.
Know the exchange and return policy: In case you buy something you dislike later on when you try at home, be wary of the return and exchange policy. Some stores may keep return on hold.
Don’t discard damaged pieces: Buying a cheap Gucci bag is like finding real treasure. Don’t be surprised to find small wear and tear. That is probably why the item is on sale. A $20 repair job will make things brand new.
