We are all aware of the woes of shopping… You spend half an hour putting together your ‘look’, only to spend a frustrating 15 minutes or more in the trial room trying to peel your legs through your skinny jeans to try on new pants! Beyond the naivety of donning something just to “wow”, you need options to make your shopping experience a little easier. I’ve curated this super fun guide that will help you decide what to wear for a day of shopping. Read on…

Why am I randomly writing about this you may ask? Shopping is pretty high on my list of things to do while Vikram and I are visiting new destinations. Yeah! That being said, I do schedule my outfits for our day to day activities accordingly.

First and foremost, wear clothing that’s easy to slip on and off {read ~ fuss-free try-ons}. Since I’m not a compulsive shopper and would always prefer to try on what I intend to purchase, you’ll probably find me in a pair of comfortable paper bag-waist trousers {read ~ loose fitting bottoms with an elastic waist} in cotton or linen, paired with a racer back {especially if I’m planning to go shopping for the whole day}.

In fact, for most outfits that beckon me in a store, the unmatched comfort this ‘uniform’ offers, added to it being a breeze to slip on and off without breaking a sweat, ergo makes an excellent case for the perfect shopping outfit! If trousers do not fit your “ease of removal” philosophy, then I would suggest wearing either a skirt or a dress. A seamless bra, like a t-shirt bra, and a panty set in nude, is also a no brainer.

A shopping day also means that a lot of walking is on the cards. Carrie Bradshaw might be the only woman in history who can effortlessly shop in towering heels! For us mere mortals, mindlessly picking “style over comfort” isn’t going to cut it ~ unless your heels are in-soled the heck out for comfort! So, do your feet a favour and reach for either comfortable flats or sneakers, that tick all the right boxes.

What the occasion also calls for is a crossbody bag. Because the last thing you want is a bulky bag that restricts your movements while you explore. Another smart trick ~ always go shopping with your hair and makeup done. The rumour is that you’ll get better service, but more importantly, along with your cool accessory {read ~ crossbody bag} that goes comfortably around your body, this will help you picture the potential of a fully put together look in the mirror.
