What to do with the sales period

What to do with the sales period

The holidays are behind us and the glitter dresses can go back into the closet. Yet they still hang in the shop windows everywhere. The winter sales have started again: the most beautiful pieces can be bought at attractive prices throughout the month of January. Good news for fashionistas, but also challenging, because a bad purchase is of no use. Axent comes to the rescue with bargain tips.

Always good

Sales are a nice snapshot to see what you really miss in your closet. Good basics such as shirts, a good walking sneaker, little black dress or a nice white blouse are always a good idea. Sooner or later you have to get it in house, so why not now that everything is just a bit more affordable? 

Moreover, basic clothing is a sustainable choice. In recent years 'sustainability' has become an important theme in fashion, because buying without awareness does not benefit nature. Precisely by choosing 'staples' – essential, minimalist items that are easy to combine, you can really make a statement as a fashion-conscious woman.

Who you want to be

It's exciting to look honestly in the mirror and say out loud what you see. Perhaps things have changed in your life or in your body that have given you a more distinct taste or want to appear more timid. Fashion is the ultimate tool to experiment with and to show the outside world who you are. 

The sales offer a good time to ask yourself what you're missing before being able to express yourself. You can invest in something that feels new or maybe even challenging without too much risk. Buy a bright pink jacket, or add that tight pencil skirt to your wardrobe to finally give your beautiful round shapes the attention they deserve.

Price tag check

The danger of bargains is that impulse purchases lurk. Trying things out is a good idea, but you have to stand behind your choice. That does not mean that you have to stock up on everything that is cheap - just because of the attractive price tag. Such an item will soon only be dyed on the back shelf of your closet.

With a clear bargain item, ask yourself: If this item was for sale for the original price, would I still consider the purchase? If your honest answer is no, you better leave it alone. There is bound to be something else that suits you better. Moreover, a cupboard that is too full is a waste of the overview. Then you forget what you have and your ensembles become chaos.

You have to do double

We all have favorite things that make any ensemble a success. Maybe it's that nice fitted top that shows off your curves beautifully, or a certain color that always works for you. Those are the items that you should take an extra copy of, because you know they will come into their own anyway.

Some women choose to buy exactly the same piece of clothing again. Double clothing may not be the first thing you think of as a trend-conscious fashion woman, but it says a lot about your sense of style if you know what works for you. So do you see your favorite item with a discount sticker? Just do it.

What the heart dictates

Actually, this rule always applies, but if you know yourself a little, you can trust that it is all right with that fashion sense. Ultimately, all items in the store have been approved by a fashion team – especially at a beautiful store like Axent where everything has been carefully selected with expertise. It is a matter of taste whether it warms you up or not.

Gianni Versace once said: don't let fashion rule you, but decide who you are and how you want to show it by the way you dress. Walking with friends and fashion people around you is fun, but the most important thing is that your look matches your inner world.
