1. DE­CODE YOUR BODY

It is im­por­tant to know what shape and size you are dress­ing for. Al­ways re­mem­ber your cor­rect size. It gives clar­ity on what you should be pick­ing up for your­self.

2. KNOW YOUR COLOURS

We all have our favourite colours, but there’s a dif­fer­ence be­tween a shade you like and a shade that looks good on you. Dif­fer­ent colours are flat­ter­ing for dif­fer­ent skin tones, so fig­ure yours out and stick with them.

3. PICK ONE TREND AT A TIME

It’s tempt­ing, but don’t pick up every­thing you see in a store. Don’t buy the en­tire col­lec­tion, but pick pieces that work for you. When ex­per­i­ment­ing with un­usual pieces like prints or colour block, pur­chase one at a time. Wear the look a few times, then buy more in the same cat­e­gory if you’re keen.

4. IT’S SMART TO HAVE A LIST OF GO-TO-STORES

Keep a shop­ping list handy. An emer­gency store visit or a last-minute al­ter­ation only comes with build­ing good re­la­tions, so the next time you go shop­ping, don’t for­get to say thank you to the store as­sis­tant.
