Are you tired of looking like last seasons fashion model this season? Is your personal style old and tired? Do you need a little pick me up? Well it’s time to find out more about women’s fashion, how to find the latest trends, when to use coupons and how to shop online. So, let’s get started!
Some women find that it takes only a couple of months for their wardrobe to take on an old and tired appearance. Especially when a woman is in the public eye on a consistent basis, she must be aware of the most current fashion trends and how her personal wardrobe and personal style measure up. When you aren’t in front of the camera you will be able to infuse some of the newest trends into your current wardrobe in order to reduce your financial outlay and stretch your current wardrobe even further.
But how do you figure out what is in fashion this year and what is just a quick fad?
The first trick is to know when to look for the newest fashions that will be available the following season. For instance, the best time to look for spring fashions are in the middle of the winter because the new spring lines arrive in the stores around March. The best time to find the newest winter fashion is in the early fall.
The most reliable sources for fashion trends are the best fashion magazines such as Vogue and Elle. While you may see some celebrities sporting a new look be wary of whether are not this particular trend will take off or if it’s just a quirky nature of that particular celebrity.
Watch for the color combinations that fashion designers are using for that particular season. You may not be able to afford designer clothing, but if you choose the right color combinations in a classic style you will continue to look trendy.
If you have a favorite designer look for their particular line to be published on their website. Just about every well-known designer has a website where you can see, and sometimes purchase, their products. Here again, look at the color combinations that designers are putting together as well as the structure of the dresses, pants and tops. You may be able to duplicate the clothing colors and structure add to your favorite department store without paying designer prices.
Visit the mall when the new season of clothing has arrived. Take note of the handbags, shoes and accessories that are used from store to store. If you see a particular type of jewelry or color of handbag that is used consistently then you have found one of the newer fashion trends for the season.
Once you have identified what you would like to purchase, it is time to figure out how to fit it into your budget. Shop online at some of the outlet stores or department store websites for the products you would like to purchase. Now go to your web browser and type in “coupon code favorite department store”. Take out the quotation marks and insert the name of your favorite department store. Your computer should come up with any coupon codes which may be available for your department store that will discount your purchases, if there are any available.
If you want to shop off-line try calling your department stores ahead of time to to determine if they will be running sales in the next couple of weeks. Many times the sales clerks will be aware of sales that are upcoming and will let you know how much you would be able to say if you wait just a week or two.
Remember to that fashion trends will be different for teens and women. Trends for women will be found in Vogue and Elle magazine while Cosmo, Cosmo girl and 17 will all carry teen fashion trends are the older teen and young 20-year-old.
While it is fun to shop for new items in your wardrobe make sure to include these shopping sprees in your budget. It is no fun to receive your credit card statement the next month and realize that you cannot return the clothing which has already been washed and worn.
For the truly budget conscious and handy woman you may be able to grab one or two sewing patterns for the newest fashion trends and duplicate these dresses and pants at home. And, if you aren’t handy at the sewing machine, having your designer clothes made by a seamstress will still be less expensive than buying a designer fashion straight from his website.
