It will depend greatly on the season.

“Live my life as a shopper”, no need to tell you that shopping is easier in summer than in winter, when you just take off your flip flops rather than boots, socks, a woolen coat in an overheated cabin!

Of course, too, we prefer an outfit Comfortable.

It’s the b-a-ba.

We all have in mind this unbearable vision of the girl who pulls big bags on the pavers with her stiletto heels (yes it was already the same at the airport, in this article!).

We will therefore opt for flat shoes or shoes with small heels.

You will also be able to equip yourself with a beautiful shopping bag or a tote in which you will slip your purchases.

For the practical side, you can carry a small shoulder bag with your wallet and survival kit.

Needless to say, the CB is THE indispensable accessory. Yes it’s true, it’s even better when it’s your darling’s 😉.

Then only wear clothes that are easy and quick to put on and off.

And the must: basics that will fit easily with the pieces you’re going to try!

How to dress for shopping ?

It depends on the season of course!

Dress up for shopping in winter

Lookastic Here are boyfriend jeans, a small sweater, a coat and Converse, all in neutral colors. we forget the pouch that will not be practical.

Forget the skirt and the dress.

Because who says skirt or dress says tights, with the risk of spinning them out and taking them off.

In mid-season and winter, we will therefore opt for the trousers or for his cousin the leggings (fleece in winter).

If you prefer trousers, avoid skinny if it is harder to put on and prefer the boyfriend (or regular jeans if it’s more your style), it will go faster.

For the top, drop the shirt that you need to unbutton and put on the blouse or on a small fine cashmere and silk sweater for example, or on a sweatshirt or a small sweater with a round neck.

Drop your big sweater Irish shops are often overheated.

You are a rebel and you don’t care about Cristina Cordula’s opinion: you can opt for leggings.

I’m not against leggings, it’s ultra comfortable, but only on the condition that you do not see the crotch.

So we prefer the ups quite long and to balance the volumes we will choose them rather large and especially not close to the body.

You can wear your leggings with a fairly long woolen maxi sweater or a long unbuttoned tunic or shirt worn on a long t-shirt or cardigan and a long t-shirt too.

Personally, I love leather leggings that are top in winter because they keep warm!

In both cases, you will be able to wear sneakers, Converse, slippers, flat boots like chelsea boots for example, rock boots or when it’s cold rider boots or UGG fur boots.

Drop derbies and brothelieu or lace-up rangers.

Depending on the outside temperature, you wear a leather jacket, a blazer, or a 3/4 coat that will go with many pieces.

If you’re tall, you can bet on the long coat too.

And of course we do not forget the maxi scarf that will keep warm outside and that can be slipped into the shopping bag inside the shops.

Slip in your shopping bag a pair of opaque tights for your dressings and skirts, because trying them bare legs will not give an idea on the actual rendering since you will necessarily wear them with tights.
