The Wardrobe Update: Shopping For Your Closet

Posted by Natali on Jan 15th 2015

Sometimes we all need a little retail therapy, but we only have so much space in our closets! To maximize your shopping and closet, the Vintage Fashionistas have a few easy tips for shopping for your closet!

Make a list of what you need.

Have you ever walked into your favorite store and wanted to buy everything? A list is useful in these situations to avoid buying things you will regret later. Avoid shopper’s remorse by making a list of all the items you need. Make a short list for specific days when you know you’re going shopping. Make a longer list for items you want to buy in general. This list method is a foolproof way to make sure you’re satisfied with your purchases in the long run.

Set a budget.

Though it may seem counterintuitive, setting a budget will ensure you focus on better quality clothing. If you only have a certain amount of your budget devoted to shopping for your closet, then you will be less likely to give into impulse purchases. Your closet will thank you when its filled with quality pieces and not so many lesser items.

Don’t think about an outfit, but a closet.

Lastly, when shopping, don’t look at a piece of clothing or accessory as part of an outfit. You should be able to envision it as fitting into your wardrobe. While that neon bracelet may work with one of your outfits, does it fit into the rest of your wardrobe? Can you wear it more than once? These questions will keep you on track when you’re shopping for your closet!

With these tips in mind, head over to Back in Style to keep you and your closet happy!
