Shopaholics & Fashionistas! Learn up these rules and you'll know exactly what to do on your next 'fashion' shopping spree!
Walk in, find something nice, bill and walk away. If only fashion shopping was that simple. This fashion season, the variety is crazy, the trends are changing every day, and every occasion demands a different style. What's more, you have to find something that suits your personality to the tee (pun intended!) every single time you shop. Sounds hard? Not anymore!
Presenting the 10 commandments of fashion shopping – our collection of must-know rules that will help you make sure that everything you buy is an eyeball grabber waiting to happen.
Ever postponed buying something you need, or love, just because it isn't SALE season yet? More often than not, waiting for the sale is waiting to fail. Very few sales going around, actually put up their freshest styles. If you love it and it's hot, just buy it – trust us it's worth every rupee. Which brings us to our second commandment…
Didn't you love those capris while they were still in fashion? If you bought them back then, you're a genius. It's smarter to pick things that are hot and trending (maybe a great pair of culottes instead of capris) rather than something that is cheaper because it went out of style.
But if you love something a lot, and it's out of style, don't worry. A trend, like history, always repeats itself. It'll be in vogue again some other season. And speaking of seasons…
Trends change every season, but what doesn't change is that there is always a 'must-have' style for that season.
Unsure what the must-haves for this season are? It's always a safe bet to log onto Max Fashion online to know what's hot and what's not right now.
They say knowledge is power. It's surely the best way to make a powerful fashion statement. Knowing what's in trend means you're already half way to picking the perfect thing to buy or to wear for the occasion. We often find that the Max Fashion blog, Max Loves offers the latest insights into everything from the world of fashion.
When you're picking what to wear – it's as much about what you wear as where you're going to wear it. Open your wardrobe and see whether you have the right ensemble for every occasion – casual, formal, semi-formal, party wear, work wear, beach wear or gym wear… you've got to be prepared for everything.
You could hear tons of advice on what to wear, and what not to. But in the end, it is you who has to wear it and look good. So when you're trying on a new outfit, make sure you are the focus - show off your style, your personality and the things about you that you love to flaunt. After all, you are what you wear.
There are just SO many styles! What to do? Make them all work for you. Mixing different styles gives a unique twist to your fashion and grabs attention. Ethnic Kurtis paired with denim jeans in college, or wearing crop tops under a saree to office are really great examples of how a mix of styles can be both unique and trendy at the same time.
It doesn't hurt to experiment a little with a few hues and shades. When you're shopping, make sure you buy all the right colours for the season that are so far missing from your wardrobe. Or you could just log on to Max Fashion online and use the 'shop by colour' filter.
Your outfit is always more than just your clothes. Give your style a well-rounded personality with accessories to complete your look. So go ahead and pick out your shoes, belt, jewellery, handbag, wallet, scarf, etc.
Fashion trends change faster than you change clothes. But don't bother about changing styles at the whim of every fashion expert out there. Find your own unique style, stick to it, and you never know when the people around you start looking up to you for fashion advice.
