Winter fashion Trap

Here are a few tips to avoid the winter fashion trap and to purchase clothes that will fit well and remain in style for more than a week.

1- Buy a recent fashion magazine and check out the new spring trends and colors. Flip through it and take notice of the new collections before heading to malls in order to avoid purchasing outdated styles. A fashion trend usually lasts for three years; therefore, try to catch a fad before it reaches its peak. Only avid trendsetters pay premium prices for first-year collections; thriftier, stylish people should wait until after the holidays because that's when prices drop drastically.

2- Always check that garments do not have any manufacturing defects. Scan the items for unwanted color fading or defective stitching. It is better to be safe than sorry because discount bargains usually have a no-return policy. Also if minor defects are found, they can be used as bargaining chips and prices could drop even lower.

3- Try things on. Generally, when buying on impulse, men will not try clothes on and regret it later. The importance of trying things on is only logical; off-the-rack clothes are not haute couture and may not suit your body. A common error is purchasing clothing a size too big or too small assuming that weight gain or weight loss will occur in coming weeks. This speculation drives men to purchase items that hang in the closet until they're given away.

Remember: Time is money; unless you're a shopaholic it's not worth spending hours searching for bargains. Is it ultimately worth spending hours hunting for bargains simply to fill closet space? No. But if you happen to stroll around the mall and discover a shirt that fits perfectly and is heavily discounted, buy it.
