Did You Know?
Here are some fun facts to get you in the shopping mood. Did you know that the average woman in America will spend $125,000 on clothing and accessories in her lifetime? In other words, you better make that next shopping excursion really count! If you’re a fan of t-shirts, you’ll be pleased to know over 60% of Americans today own more than 10 t-shirts in their wardrobe. Every year sees over 80 billion articles of clothing, from jeans to sweaters, produced and sold around the world.
There’s nothing like a classic to make your next purchase easier. Knit hats are adorable additions to any ensemble, whether they’re striped or a bold basic to match your socks. An interesting study found over 60% of American women and girls struggling to find a cute new look on a daily basis. When you want to simplify the process as you’re rushing out the door, add knit caps to your to-buy list. These give off a nice winter vibe and pair nicely with a pair of knitted gloves or a scarf!
If you’re a little more on the sporty side, a pony cap might be your next big thing. These are perfect for keeping the sun out of your eyes when you’re at soccer practice. They can also be tossed on top of a t-shirt and shorts for warmer weather in general. The back to school shopping season has been found to be the second largest seasonal shopping period in the United States, right after Christmas. The pony cap can come in all sorts of fun flower patterns or simple colors to give your outfit more personality.
Let’s go right on back to the festivities. Maybe you have more than enough accessories, but want to make sure they’re actually paired with nice tops and bottoms. Clothing accounts for over 55% of the budget for back to school supplies, particularly when it comes to practical wear that’ll keep you cozy on the bus and in class. A knit shirt can come in a button-up or a pullover, perfect for layering beneath your jacket and complimenting your knit beanie. Experiment with different types of knits, like the classic cable knit or the stretchy rib knit.
This last one might just be your next great idea. It doesn’t matter if you love sweater dresses, huge pullovers or simple knit shirts. Leggings are a stretchy and soft addition to supplement your jeans and shorts. Their wide variety of patterns, colors and textures mean you can mix and match with ease. In fact, it’s hard to think of outfits that don’t look good with leggings. Throw them under a pair of shorts, a skirt or a baggy top that you won’t grow into for a few years. The sky’s the limit when it comes to you and your fashion!
