Should you shop for clothes on Amazon?
Some weeks it seems like my family is single-handedly keeping Amazon in business. After all they’re our go-to for books, toys, items for the home and electronics, but clothes? Should you really shop for clothes on Amazon? I’m here to tell you, the answer is yes! In fact, some of my favorite recent closet additions have come straight from this retail giant. When perusing the site, I was hesitant at first, especially when I didn’t recognize the brand. But after successful purchases of cute and affordable sunglasses, on-trend and well-made handbags, I took the plunge on sweaters, leggings and other cute pieces and have yet to be disappointed!
How to shop for clothes on Amazon
Shopping on Amazon can be super overwhelming, simply because there is just so many options. There are, however, a few strategies to make finding what you’re looking for a bit easier. First, be descriptive with your search terms. Instead of searching for “cardigan”, search for “oversized, chunky cardigan”. Next, if you’re an Amazon Prime member make sure that you check the box for “Prime” on the left side of the screen. This way you know you’ll get your shipment in 2 days. I also check the box further narrowing down the selection to items with at least 3 stars. Finally, read the reviews! In some instances, shoppers may even include photos of the item. I also always look for items that list “free returns” in case I’m unhappy or need a different size.
