How To Shop For Trending Clothing In Los Angeles
Posted on February 10 2019
Sure, you can go to the mall and aimlessly wander the hundreds of department stores, but in the end, it is more than likely that you will walk out of the store with something that you don’t really want (or need). In order to make a point of our “bold” statement, we would like to bring up the clothing pile that every single person in Los Angeles is guilty of having. Of course, we are talking about the “I liked it when I bought it, but now I am unsure pile.”
In an effort to avoid having, or building upon, that pile of clothing, it is important to shop smarter — and it is not nearly as hard as you might think. In today’s blog post, your source of the latest styles and trending clothing in Los Angeles, Laced., will be discussing a few tips that you might want to consider next time that you are out shopping for a new outfit.
Don’t Be An Impulse Buyer
When it comes to shopping at local clothing stores, everyone has the same issue — they buy something out of impulse and then they end up sitting on top of “that pile” for the next few years. Now, we aren’t saying that you shouldn't feel the initial impulse to buy certain trending clothing items, but we are saying that you should slow down and think about it before you buy it.
One of the best ways to not be an impulse buyer is to only buy what you set out to buy in the first place. For example, if you need some new t-shirts you shouldn't be in the jacket section — and if you are, the impulse buy might have already gotten you.
Try Things On
All too often people go into a store confident that they know their size. While we have no doubt that you know if you are a size small, medium, large, extra large, or double extra large, different brands might have different sizing charts. Now, this doesn’t mean that you might not be a size large across the board or a true size small — what it means is that certain aspects of the clothing fit might be marginally different than other brands.
Rather than realizing that the shoulders of your new coat or the calves of your new joggers don’t fit when you get home, simply try them on in the store to make sure you are buying the right fit.
Build The Outfit From The Ground Up
Being that we also specialize in the sale of limited release shoes, we like to think that an outfit is built from the ground up — or at least inspired from the ground up. Before you purchase anything in a local clothing store, it is important to consider the other pieces of clothing and the shoes that you already have. All too often people go into a store to buy the latest trendy clothing, only to buy it and then realize that they have nothing to wear with it.
At Laced., our solution to this is mentally building the outfit before you purchase the clothing. You can start from the ground up, considering the shoes you already own or are shopping for, or you can start from the top down. The important thing is that you visually build the outfit so that you don’t end up buying another piece of clothing for “the pile.”
Never Shop Alone
Whether we are talking about shopping for designer clothing, or anything else in life, it is always nice to get a second opinion from someone that you trust. Naturally, when people go shopping by themselves they tend to think that they look good in something even when they might not — and that is not a surprise being that you can only see so many angles using a mirror.
By bringing a friend or a family member with you can have a second, and more importantly honest, opinion about the clothing item that you are considering buying.
