1. Decide on a budget before you shop. Make a list of what you need to buy the most at the moment, otherwise you could spend a fortune. Figure out how much you can afford to spend on new clothes and make sure you stick to your budget. Know roughly how much to budget for each piece of clothing. Go back to the store that corresponds to your needs. Consider how the items are put together when buying to get an idea of what kind of style you want to wear.
2. Choose the items that catch your eye at first glance. Pick out what you are automatically drawn to, the items you really like. Trust your instincts. Don't worry too much about current trends or styles. But do need to consider how you will match it and whether it will become unused. 3. Be selective. Don't blindly buy something you don't fit and may not need to use, whether it's doing a price cut or not. You also need to consider whether you have similar items; if you have 2 or 3 pieces of the same or similar clothing, there is no point in buying it again even if you like the color. 4. Check the label Check the care level of the item and whether you are willing to care for it the way it needs to be cared for (e.g., hand wash only, dry clean, etc.) If you know you are unlikely to take an item to the dry cleaners, don't buy it if it can only be dry cleaned.
