Yesterday I went with two of my best girlfriends to Woodbury Commons, one of the best outlets in New York. A day of shopping with good friends- of course I had a great time! I decided to give some fashion advice because it really is crucial when preparing for these kind of shopping excursions to wear the right outfit.
|I wore my Lilly Pulitzer Belle Top yesterday. It was super comfortable and bright enough for my friends to spot me!|
Personally I find it easiest to wear a top and bottom and not a dress. I love dresses, don't get me wrong, but when it comes down to trying on different items of clothing its hard to try on a top without pants! If you do make a trip while wearing a dress you can always make sure to pick out bottoms before entering the dressing room but when your tired or in a rush its just easier to have separates on.
|I wore my trusty pair off Hudson stretch shorts in the Cindy Wash. Ive had them for about three years and they are seriously the most comfortable denim I have owned.|
If your planning on going to a shopping mall that tourists frequent- like Woodbury- it is important to wear clothing that will make you stand out in a crowd. I usually try to wear a bright color or something so that if by any chance a store is too crowded my shopping partners can spot me easily.
Another tip is to make sure your top or bottom hits you at a good spot. A tunic is not the easiest top to wear when trying on a lot of clothing because it is too long to correctly show you how your bottom really looks and the same can go with high waited shorts, skirts or pants.
As for shoes wear something comfortable, you cannot go wrong in flats! If you have a specific occasion your shopping for and want to wear your favorite shoes- bring them! A dress can look completely different with different heel heights. But if your like me and don't know what your shopping for until you hit the stores then going with flats mean you at least can go on tiptoes to imagine some height.

Yesterday at Woodbury I ended up buying a lot from J.Crew, Barneys, and Last Call Neiman outlets. J.Crew is actually having 50% off clearance right now in their outlet stores.
STUDENTS: Always bring your student ID to go shopping. J. Crew always gives a 15% student discount on your final purchase and thats a savings you dont want to miss!
These were just a few of my fashion tips! What do you like to wear when shopping?
