I am a self confessed online shopping addict! In the past year I have only made one purchase in-store and the rest my shopping has been done in the comfort of my own home (usually on the couch in my pyjamas).
Here are my tips for winning at shopping on the world wide web.
Have a plan.
Approach online shopping just as you would hitting the grocery store. Know what you need to add to your wardrobe and shop with purpose.
The great thing about online shopping is the competition between stores. If you find a particular item that you love, google it and 99% of the time you will be able to find it on sale.
Know your size.
The advantage of knowing a particular brand is knowing your size, making your online purchase a guaranteed winner. If you are trying a new brand, make sure you read the sizing guide and the item description for fit, length and fabric.
Read the online reviews.
Most online stores now have reviews written by real customers who have bought that item. These are fantastic and very helpful.
Don’t be afraid of returning your clothes.
So many stores have simple, free return policies that make it easy to try before you buy.
Here are a few of my favourite online stores that I regularly purchase from. They all have either Afterpay or Zippay and have very fast shipping and returns.
