Picking a go-to fitting room outfit is KEY to successful shopping. Here’s one of my favorites.
Keys: pick an outfit that flatters parts of your body you like, hides imperfections, and is wrinkle resistant through multiple on/off attempts. I always want to love my clothes as much as the ones in the store, and don’t want discomfort to derail my shopping mission.
1) flowy top, BCBG: comfy, flattering, and in a bold color. This will improve my mood and hide any bulges so I always am happy to get back in my outfit.
2) simple slacks. These are J brand midrise skinny denim: comfortable and easy to deal with in multiple changes. Basic black skinnies are always good for trying on tops. I think they flatter my butt which is a helpful boost after trying out unflattering bottoms.
3) fun accessories: I love my bright slip on J. Crew flats and they are easy for running through a mall. I’ll wear a necklace when I’m trying on tops to get an idea of neckline or accessory options.
