Check out my online shopping list if you are always ordering clothes online and then return right back again.
I can’t remember when was my last time browse in store because this is very convenient turn on apps on my phone and shop online, so much easier. I still like to browse in store or buy specific pieces I can’t find online. Unfortunately, online shopping does come with its own downsides for example how to know if the item fits you, what the quality is like and what the colour exactly look like in real life. I wanted to share few of my tips for how to shop successfully online.
  1. Make sure you are shopping safely: Sometime this is hard to check if the shopping sites are safe, although most of them are safe these days. If you have found an independent boutique you have never shop before, check they have a privacy policy, a return policy and find the padlock to paypal symbol (usually at the bottom of a page). Those policies and symbols means your financial data etc will be encoded for security.
  2. Check the reviews part: I always look for review section when the shopping site is new to me. Reviews are normally very dependable and insightful. I pay attention to the star rating, also take the time to go through the best and bad reviews…sometimes you can notice everyone agrees on one issue and therefore decide if thats a matter for you or not.
  3. Know the returns policy: I always look for stores that have 28 days to return or at least store credit if an item doesn’t fit. Some will even cover shipping cost for free return. There is nothing lose to know more about the returns policy before you spend your money on something that possibly doesn’t fit or can’t be returned!
  4. Think through the fabric: read the items details and description or size information sections. Will it be too stretchy or baggy? How do you wash it? etc.
  5. Be aware of your measurements: Size charts are so important for determining what kind of size you tend to be in your favourite brand. They are generally placed somewhere near the item description. For instance, you may be a size 8 in Zara but a size 10 in Toyshop.

    I hope these tips will be helpful. Don’t forget to let me know in the comment if you have your online shopping experience to share.
