What To Wear When ShoppingBy Style Counsel / May 3, 2018 / Blog,Style,Stylists / 0 Comments
Shopping centers and high streets are overcrowded sweatboxes with the potential to trigger multiple meltdowns. While there are some tactics to make shopping a more relaxing experience, what you wear whilst browsing the aisles is crucial. Here are our top suggestions:
Try to wear light and airy tops while shopping to keep you nice and cool. If it’s cold outside you can be certain that the heating will be blasting inside the shops, so wear layers such as a t-shirt, blazer and then your coat so you can strip down easily. Additionally, wear a top that is easy to get on and off such as a button-down shirt, so you don’t have a nightmare in the changing room.
Avoid wearing your tightest jeans as they are a nightmare to get back on when you are trying on clothes, instead opt for a pair of tailored trousers or some mom jeans or flares which are easier to slide back into.
When you are in and out of shops the chances are you are going to be switching between temperatures so wear a lightweight jacket that you can fold up and put in your bag to save yourself holding a huge coat that will only get in the way.
Slip-on shoes are the best when shopping, such as mules or backless loafers. This means that trying on clothes and shoes will be super easy when you don’t have to fiddle with laces. However, you need your feed to be comfortable, so trainers that are easy to get on and off are a great option too, as they will cushion your feet to prepare for plenty of roaming around deciding what to buy.
This might seem like a strange one but wear simple underwear that is either white or black, extravagant underwear can affect how an item of clothing looks and can be uncomfortable when swapping between items you want to try on. Plus, you don’t want to be trying on a white shirt with a luminous pink bra showing through!
When shopping some prefer a small cross body bag that fits all of the essentials, this leaves both of your hands free to sift through the clothing rails and to hold shopping bags. Alternatively, (ironically) shopper bags are great as they can fit your coat in and items you have bought to save getting a plastic bag.
