Good Question: What to Know Before You Shop

May 11, 2007 by Adrienne

You can save time and headaches by arming yourself with certain bits of key information before you even begin shopping.


First, if you don’t know your colors by now, do your homework or hire someone to help you. Each season a designer changes their palette, so some years will be better for you than others. But resist the urge to buy that coral-orange jacket if it’s not in your color range. Use it as an accessory instead of a base item – as a purse, pin, ring, necklace, bracelet, scarf, sunglasses, hair accessory – you get the idea.


Secondly, know the designers that work well for your body type. Lines like Anne Klein, Alfani, Jones New York, DKNY and Ralph Lauren are good for pear-shaped ladies, for instance. Personal shoppers at large department stores are a great resource to help you figure out what works best for each body type. Use them– it’s their job!
