Stylish Sweats & Where to get them

As a uni student, spending most days reading in the library requires loungewear, but its increasingly difficult to find stylish sweats that aren’t boring! So I wanted to write this article to help those like myself find comfy sweats whilst maintaining that expensive styled look that Hailey Bieber constantly emulates!! (I know I’m a little gel at times).

For those lucky readers that have a little extra slush to play with these are the shops I would recommend for stylish and — oh so trendy street sweats these are the brands I would suggest:

  • Erys

Erys is the merch website for Jaden Smith, and along with his music videos these sweats do not disappoint! Filled with vibrant colours, edgy slogans this is total streetwear for guys and girls alike. Worn by Jaden himself these aren’t too pricy for the celebrity name they come with, and unlike Beibers Drew House, Jadens Erys is much easier to get hold of – for now. But I predict in a year or two when he has reached the height of Beibers fame these too like Drew will be almost impossible to get your hands on.

  • Drew House

However, these although they aren’t too pricy, are incredibly hard to get hold of, so I would advice to join the mailing list if this style is calling you.

  • MKI MIYUKI ZOKU

For those of you like me — Uni students who still lust for the nice bits but can quite afford the price tags just yet these are the brands I would suggest taking a sneaky peak at:

  • Collusion

Collusion is a recently new brand to hit the street but it has done so with extra passion and edge that even the likes of Drew House are needing to compete with. Their styles feature bold bright colours, edgy designs suitable for guys & girls with a price tag suitable for us all! So for those of you who would like to wear sweats like the Kardashians or Supermodels then you need to check out this brand, its styling is unreal.

  • ASOS Design

ASOS Design is a brand within the clothing house ASOS, it features both male and female categories although I still shop in the guys sections because they have some seriously cool stuff too. ASOS Design has an epic sweats range tho, you need to search for this via the search bar tool, and you will not be disappointed, there are so many hidden gems its unbelievable, and at a mixture of prices too.

How to shop the sales like a Diva…

marc jacobs bags .jpg1.Research the shops

On the day of the sales, you most likely not have time to look around different shops, for the best price, so look online the night before so you know where the deals are. This will be more important if your after a particular designer piece as they are often in multiple outlets.

Sign up to your favorite shops mailing lists as they might include hints of whats going to be in the sale, & you will be  in the know of when the sales are coming first. Also create accounts for your favourite shops, so you can checkout online faster to place your order, as some more popular shops don’t save your items until you’ve payed for them.

2. Look through your wardrobe

This is very important for successful shopping, ask your self just two questions when clearing your wardrobe; What do I need ? & What do I want ?

This will make your investments have much greater use, as you will be buying what you lack. Meaning next week when you’ve spent all your money you don’t find yourself with 15 pairs of shoes and no tops.

3. Does it fit

Don’t fall into the category of buying something a size to big because you love it, Only buy what fits your body perfectly. (this doesn’t mean it has to be skin tight) Try on your favourite items before the sale season, to perfect your size and you will be much more likely to buy something in the sale that you love and wear all the time, Just make a note of the size and colour.

4. Only buy what you love

Its easy to see everything as a bargain when sales shopping, and make out that your actually saving money. Wrong. Sales shopping is when you’re more likely to buy because its on sale, rather than because you love it. Therefore even though the items are discounted, its not a bargain if your only going to wear it once. You have to love what you buy for it to be a bargain.

5. The question for every purchase

When your in a crowded store its easy to come out with lots of different items that don’t work together. And thats not successful shopping, it’s not how much you buy, but what it goes with. How many outfits you can create.

So before grabbing everything ask yourself…What 3 pieces of clothing would I wear it with, and is it my style?

 6. Up style

The sales are the perfect time to be able to buy items you would never normally buy, so use this time to but statement designer pieces that would add to your wardrobe.  You don’t want to just buy more of what you already have, so look for items which would update your wardrobe, sales isn’t a time for bulk buying. Use it to find unique designer discounts too, which are normally much more expensive.

7. Style it classic

Don’t buy the trends that are going out of style, during the sales you want to keep it simple and classic, to your style, so you will be able to wear it even when the trends change. Stick to your style, fashion can only look good if it fits into your style and body shape. You need to buy the items that add to you, not because it’s trending.

8. Don’t be late

Weather your online or instore, the most popular & most discounted will sell out very quickly. Faster online then instore, popular online items can sell out it the first 15 minuets of the sale launching. Large popular brands like Zara close their store a couple of hours before launching the sale to maximise the site capacity. This will mean there are more purchasers on site and items will sell much quicker, so be prepared.

9. Online shopping tips

-Have your debit/credit card out, many shops during sale time won’t save your items until you’ve paid, so make sure your cards out for a quick transaction- or for even faster payment use Paypal, as it saves all your details.

-Have access to good WiFi, sites may often be running slow with the large volume of customers on their site, so make sure your Ipad/computer is near fast good quality WiFi, for that faster loading time.

-Have the websites already open on separate tabs, This will allow you to flick quickly through the e-stores you’re wanting to shop from much faster then searching each store individually.

10. Don’t worry

If one of your favorite items is sold out before you’ve been able to get your hands on it, for whatever reason. Don’t panic, many stores start to receive stock back, about a week after their main sale day. As thats the time when customers begin to send their unwanted items back. This is often when you can find your favourite sale items at much cheaper costs, as some shops apply multiple discounts after their main sale date.

All my l0ve hope this helps…Dotwiz X.
