Top 10 Fashion Shopping Tips

1: Most people will probably head straight for the designer rails so beat the rush and make a beeline for the best of the high street- as always you can get so much more for your money (or tokens!)

2: Don’t panic and think carefully about what you need. A bargain that you only wear once is not good value! Go for basics that won’t date e.g. A check shirt, boyfriend blazer or even a LBD

3: For trying on, always wear clothing that’s easy to slip on and off, boots and a jumper dress are perfect (like Lilly!), there’s nothing worse than trying to navigate a pair of skinnies!

4: A girl can never have too many accessories, make a beeline for the bags, belts and vintage look scarves, they’ll go a long way – true fashion multi taskers!

5: Get set for a proper rummage! Always keep an open mind, swapping is a great time to try a new look you wouldn’t usually pay for and you can be experimental without denting your bank balance.

6: Look out for anything parachute silk- trousers, jumpsuits and utility style dresses are all key for springs grown up sporty look. Suede fringed accessories are also worth grabbing hold of.

7: Look out for spring/summer’s biggest colours – tangerine and bright blue – you can re-work pieces from this season. And have patience! Finding what you’re after takes time, but it’ll be worth it!

8: A classic designer piece will last you a lifetime – avoid faddish trends and watch out for luxe fabrics like leather, silk and cashmere. Keep you’re eye out for good basics that never date.

9: Now’s the time to snap up some bargains for Spring. Head for oriental prints as seen on the Dolce & Gabbana catwalk, candy colours and all things ’80s and you’ll be a step ahead.

10: Go armed with a belt – the best accessory for nipping in cardies, frocks, jumpsuits or tops to totally transform them and also you’ll be able to be slightly flexible with sizes.
