Wardrobe Tips for Teens

Influences on Clothing Decisions:
by Sarah Woodworth
VP Teens Fashion "BayBayz"

Each day is a new outfit whether it's the new shirt you just bought or last year's jeans. Everyday people, especially teens, ask themselves the same question.

What am I going to wear?

For me, it takes me at least 20 minutes to decide on what I'm going to wear. Planning your wardrobe ahead of time, saves time. You're also not so stressed out each day about your outfit.

Assessing & Building Your Wardrobe:

By assessing your wardrobe, you're bassically getting rid of the old and in with the new. For starters, go through your wardrobe and sort out your garments. Find the items you don't wear & identify the problem. There may be creative ways to save the garments & make them to your liking again. If there isn't, get rid of them. Selling or donating them are two goods choices. Now you know the items you wish to add to your wardrobe.

Where to Shop:

Places to shop are unlimited. There are so many options out there that represent you, trendy and cheap. Department stores carry a wide variety of styles and prices. If you're looking for a particular style than try a specialty store. Wanna Save a Buck? Discount stores offer the same brands as department stores but the prices are lower. Outlet stores sell a particular brand at a reduced price. These items come directly from the manufacture. Finally, want a unique style that will most likely guarantee originality? Thrift stores offer used clothing and most finds are very unique.

Evaluating Garments:

There are lots of tips to keep in mind while shopping for clothing. I'll only give you a few tips for evaluating garments.
1. Does it fit? Sizes vary from different manufacturers.
2. Does it look good? Choose colors that compliment you.
3. Is the price right? Are you paying the right price for the garment?
4. Care Needs? Can this item be machine washed?

Physical Factors:

Physical factors are things like the weather, comfort and safety. Seasons change and if you live in an area where there are dramatic weather changes, you will want clothing that you still like and compliments you but also protects you from the cold and warmth. If your family takes you for a hiking trip, you want to be smart about what you wear. You want to look good and be comfortable.

Psychological Factors:

Psychological factors are the ways you feel about yourself. How confident you feel with your choice whether you wear the latest styles or decide to go for more traditional. These factors show who you are and what you're comfortable wearing.

Conclusion:

I believe the information I have provided here will help teens with smart clothing decisions. Planning your wardrobe ahead of time, saves time and leaves you less stressed out. If a teen tried this, they would have more time in the mornings or sleep in longer.
By taking the time to look through your wardrobe and eliminate items you no longer need and to plan ahead for the items you do need, is important. Teens don't know what they have until they've given it a look.
Where to shop is stressful especially if you're not a fan of big crowds which is why I suggested multiple choices for teens to use the next time the they shop.
Lots of teens don't evaluate the garments before purchases. By doing those simple steps, they will be more satisfied with their purchases.
I added physical factors and psychological factors because teens need to dress smart for any occasion like school, going outside & sports. They also need to be comfortable and confident in future purchases so what I'm trying to achieve is making teens smarter and more aware when buying clothing. I want them to ask themselves some of the tips I suggested and to save themselves and there money from bad decision making.
