Everyone has their preferred method of shopping for their latest fashion wear, even those uninterested in fashion. A few of the most prominent types of shoppers follow. See if you recognize yourself below.
Strictly thrift store: Unwilling or unable to afford pricier clothing, some people will shop exclusively among other people’s discards for their latest clothing purchases. It’s not too much of a fashion statement, aside from uttering, “I’m practical.”
Consignment Shops: These boutiques generally offer nice clothing that’s been worn before, but not worn much. And it has especially not been worn out, as can be found at thrift shops.
Name Brands at Discount Store Prices: This is the realm of the true discount fashion artist. Most fashion brands either see a lack of demand for a particular product, or create far too many of a particular item. For whatever reason, including the ever-present seasonal push, they need to discard of surplus items quickly. They throw their sales to draw in willing discount shoppers, then push their inventory out the door to companies that specialize in offering off-season, discounted merchandise. Shoppers at these stores know they’ll find reasonable prices on slightly outdated, but new, merchandise.
Standard Retailers: Based in shopping malls, strip malls, and department stores, the outfits found here are sleek, stylish, up to date, and fully priced. Not a lot of bargains to be found aside of the occasional sale, but the price merely includes the freshness.
High End Fashion Stores: Full price, cutting edge fashion often not available anywhere else. For those who put fashion first.
