Tips to Think of Before We ‘Add to Cart’ Online

The arrival of technology in the fashion industry has changed the way we shop today. The options are endless and all outfits we dream of are only a click away.

Shopping online definitely has its benefits — no need to wait in line, leave the house or even change out of our pajamas. But, with so many options available, it can be confusing and we could get sucked into a never ending browsing dilemma.

Here are some tips to skip the store lines and frustration and quickly buy the right outfit online:

Know What You Want

Considering our phones are with us 24/7, a lot of us shop online on an impulse. We add to cart when we are bored, we add to cart when we are waiting, etc. While it works sometimes, it surely helps to find what we are looking for if we know what we want. Try making a list to make sure we get the essentials (because the extra outfits are added anyway!).

Think of a Budget

Having pre-set filters in your mind, like a budget, helps to narrow our options and makes the buying process quicker. Instead of looking at a 100 products with multiple prices, we can look at 35 products that actually fit in our budget. Quick and effective. Invest in brands you trust when purchasing expensive products but we must try and experiment with new brands that are more affordable like The Missy Co.

Match Sizes

Sizes vary depending on the brand. Keep a note of your basic sizes for bust, waist and hips. We could always whip out a measuring tape and check it in case we don’t remember. A lot of brands have their own size charts as well. Match your measurements to the brands size chart to get the best size and fit.

Check the Return Policy

So many times, we are a hundred percent satisfied only after we have tried the product ourselves. A fair point! Brands have realized this customer need and thus, offer great return policies. If you don’t like something, you can always return it. Don’t forget to check the time frame of the brands return policy.

Picture it

Be flexible and think of ways you would pair that particular top/ pant. This adds another layer of surety because we are literally picturing ourselves in that outfit. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Trying new looks is always fun. And for any reason if we don’t want it, we can always return it.

Edit your cart. 

After browsing for hours, we may forget what we have added to our cart. We should review and edit our cart before placing the order to really know what we are ordering. If we find ourselves still obsessing over those ruffle pants a few days from now, we can always go back for it.
