Why You Should Buy Your Next Outfit Online
Updated: Sep 10, 2018
Did you know that there was a time where buying stuff online was not as quick and convenient as it is now? There are the obvious reasons like not knowing if a place was legit or not being able to try on pieces before you buy. And the not so obvious ones like bad return policies. Luckily, retailers realized the difficulties of shopping online and came out with things like size charts and better return policies for the customer.
Now, its honestly my favorite way to shop!!
Still, I know there are some that still love going to an actual store to see and feel how different clothing items fit. So, I'm here to help show you just what you are missing out on (;
whether you’re looking to add to your summer wardrobe for next year or want to prepare a beautiful winter outfit, here are a couple of reasons why you need to start buying your fashion online.
The internet is full of inspiration. Be it fashion blogs, Pinterest or even social media, there are countless places to find inspiration for your next outfit. You can save images, look back through your collection for inspiration, and there are even some people that post what they’re wearing in pictures so you can replicate the look or pick and mix different pieces.
Accurate Size Guides
The worst thing about buying clothes nowadays is that sizes don’t mean anything. An “XL” for one store could be an L for another, and the numbers are hardly representative of anything. Instead, get yourself a tape measure, measure yourself and look at the size guide of the retailer that you’re buying from. They’ll have accurate measurements to ensure that your clothes actually fit properly, so there’s no more loose dresses, no more tight jeans and no more hassle with returns. Instead, you’ll get the right sizes every time and you can simply save your measurements and compare them on each site you buy from.
You’re no longer limited to just buying from your local stores. Websites like Filly Flair allow you to purchase beautiful boutique dresses in the comfort of your own home and they’ll be shipped to you no matter where you live. It’s a huge convenience and you’ll be surprised at how many unique fashion trends and brands there are on the internet. Some are even internet-only, selling their wares through the web instead of having a physical store. Some of my favorite online boutiques are Pink Door Boutique, Shop 12th Tribe, Vici Dolls, and Shop Lux Clothing.
So Many Discounts!
If you’re looking to save money, then buying on the internet is a great option. By simply signing up to the mailing list of brands (regardless if they’re big or small) you’ll get weekly or monthly newsletters telling you about the latest collections, the newest items and also receive discounts and coupon codes. If you follow these brands on social media, they might even hand out free gifts or tell you about flash deals. In fact, even big-name brands will hold online sales where they can slash prices by up to 70% or more on expensive pieces that are due to be replaced by a new seasonal collection.
