I can be your online shopping guide. Born to shop. No matter where I go, shopping has always been my superpower. The way we all shop now has changed, and we find the most online. These are the secrets to online shopping success.
First, you have to have an idea of WHAT LOOKS BEST ON YOUR BODY. One of the biggest mistakes we make online is deciding on something for us based on how good it looks on someone else. Try to look at details like color, proportion, construction, and silhouette instead.
Look how much shorter the same jeans are on the model than on me at 5’4″.
Since all bodies aren’t the same, the best way to know if a pair of jeans will fit you is to know your numbers, or measurements. Check out my DENIM DIRECTORY for more details.
Stores like Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdale’s share all the measurements and offer free shipping and free returns.
If you want to cut to the chase these styles are my best sellers and come in a variety of washes. Most are a flattering mid rise and ankle length. I’m 5’4″ and wear a 26, but sized down in FRAME and up in MOTHER.
PAIGE | CINDY
FRAME | STRAIGHT LEG
MOTHER | INSIDER CROP
You can play it safe by shopping for shoes online from brands that you’ve worn before. These brands are my go to for style, price, fit, and quality. I linked all of their sites for future reference, and highlighted my 4 favorite styles.
TOP TOPS ONLINE
Adding a fun new top to your wardrobe is a fast way to a whole new outfit. ASTR , VERA MODA, ENDLESS ROSE, AVEC LES FILLES, and AQUA are some of thee best budget brands that offer great styles on trend.
Bonus Tip -Make sure you look at all the color choices so you can pick the one that looks the most expensive. At these prices, they aren’t all created equal. For example the top I’m wearing comes in a darker color combination, but the lighter looks more expensive.
This top looks like so much more than $59 in the neutral animal print or solid black, verses the gingham.
This V-neck from FRAME is phenomenal. Its been mercerized, so it glides on and doesn’t cling. You can’t beat the price on Madewell Tees. Their wisper cotton V-neck without a pocket is perfect.
A crew neck T-shirt will always be a staple in our wardrobes. My Nordstrom 6 girlfriends swear by this crewneck ATM T-shirt. James Perse is a personal favorite of mine. I found it here in stock and 53% off.
Graphic Tees add print and personality. Splurge on styles from ANINE BING. Styles from DAYDREAMER will add to your arsenal too.
