Back to School: Shopping
Welcome back to my blog. Today’s blog post is going to be a continuation of my #BTSwithMatida series. Today we will be branching off from my last blog post was talking about picking the perfect backpack and clothing color schemes for back to school shopping. In this blog post I am going to be elaborating on the clothing part of back to school.
So lets start with what I was talking about Monday. Which was the clothing color scheme. A clothing color scheme is having a set theme of colors that you feel are versatile and can be worn together in many different ways. So more for your buck.
The clothing color scheme is a really helpful method. It allows for you to avoid buying unnecessary clothing, coming home realizing nothing goes together, and like I said before you get more for your buck (and who doesn’t love that). Not only is having a clothing color scheme good for clothing but as I brought up in my last blog post it can also help with finding the perfect book bag , accessories, and even shoes.
Once you have a color scheme. You can get to the fun part and that is actually going shopping.
(My clothing color scheme is black, white, cream, beige, denim, gray, red, yellow, and burnt orange.) (Not that you guys care)
While you are shopping something I would recommend going with someone you trust and will tell you the truth about the clothing you are trying on (does something good or bad on you). The trick with this is bringing someone who has similar style than you so that way the reason you guys don’t agree on style isn’t because you don’t have similar styles.
While you are shopping remember that it is important to remember practically. By practicality I mean that something isn’t to short and you are going to grow of it. Or that something is to tight and you will only wear once. This even apply’s to shoes and accessories. For example if you buy a leather jacket with silver hardware you probably want to wear a silver watch with it rather than a gold watch. An example for shoes would be if you are in high school or college you most likely can wear sandals but if you live in a city that has a more topical climate and rains a lot you most likely want to invest in 1 pair of sandals but you shouldn’t spend all of your money on sandals maybe buy more sneakers or durable flats.
Since we are on the topic of shoes let’s talk about some practical shoes. I do not feel that sandals and flip flops are that practical only because you wear them for a short time out of the school year (unless you live somewhere like Florida). So I would recommend something like sneakers they are versatile and practical.
It is fine if you are not a sneaker fan you can go for a versatile flat.
Now lets talk about some accessories. I know accessories that are practical and cute sounds like a fairy tale but I feel they’re are some accessories that are just that. A fairy tale.
So that is all for today. An overview of all the tips will be below. Every back to school post will have outfit post from now one.
