When online shopping was not as prevalent as it is today, we often wondered, how easy will it become to order trendy fashion gear online? You in your room, on a hot summer day, in your pajamas, waiting for the delivery boy to hand over you the package which has the world’s most perfect pair of socks. Great, isn’t it?
We wished it was always this simple. Sadly, this is not the case and shopping online is not a cent less than sitting for an examination. Everyone walks out with marks but only a few will get what they planned for.
Shopping for fashion online is just as taxing as offline shopping. If the barrage of online sales, fashion trends and countless options makes you feel dizzy then you are not alone. There are specific fashion stores, then there are general fashion stores and then there are big giants like Amazon or Flipkart with their myriad of options.
We can agree, online fashion shopping is not easy but let’s not deny the fact that shopping feels like a therapy. So to help you do it like a pro, we have prepared some tips. Here they are-
Create a Separate Account
One quick way of always being up to date with the latest parts is to subscribe the newsletter of these online shops. They will timely reminders on when a sale is about to start. But there’s a catch here. The moment you enter your email address there, your inbox will be spammed with countless promotional emails taking away the focus from your more important emails.
To prevent this, you should have another mail account that is solely dedicated for subscribing to newsletters. Some discount codes are only shared to the newsletter subscribers. So whenever you feel the need to get that trendy dress, open the mail and see if there is any discount running or not.
Don’t Forget to Compare
So you found an amazing pair of jeans on a site. But before proceeding to the checkout section, wait for a while. Do a quick Google search with the product name and see if the same is available for less somewhere else. Unless the product is exclusive to that particular store, you should easily get some deals on other sites.
Maybe the product is available for the same price but coupons are available for the other site. With just a simple Google search, you saved some cash. Congrats.
Focus on What You Need
As we said earlier, online shopping can be confusing. There are so many options.
Do you know what all successful people have in common? They are organized. Organizing and planning are not just for serious stuff, shopping can also benefit from it. If a big sale is running then prepare a list of all the products you need. And when jumping on the site, only focus on the products you need and forget the rest.
Not only would you save a lot of time gazing the product you don’t need but makes it easier to find what you need by making use of search and filter options.
Size Charts are There are for a Reason
How many times have you dealt with the size problems and unwillingly return the product? All that waiting was in vain. And if you needed that dress for an important event, then we feel sorry for your soul.
This could have all been avoided easily if you paid a little attention to the sizing chart. Every online fashion store has a specific sizing chart that you can refer to exactly see the size of the piece that you are ordering.
You can measure yourself and see if the clothing will fit you or not. Easy, right?
Use Coupon Sites
While the sites have their own discounts running all the time, using coupons racks up your savings even more. These discount sites are easy to use and provide you with all the updates for new deals and offers. There are many sites out there now. You have Jabong Coupons, Myntra Coupons, Amazon Coupons and many more.
