The Black Friday is approaching and the pre-BF deals are already flooding my digital space, but I somehow feel terribly uninspired. How is that even possible? The problem is that I’m being bombarded by sporadic fashion offers pushing random pieces, brands and discounts. Not surprisingly, the lack of personalization can’t spark a tad of excitement on my end, let alone trigger action.
On one hand, I definitely need some seasonal essentials to spice up my looks, but on the other I find everything utterly boring, basic and mundane. Like I said, fashion retailers are unaware of (or uninterested in?) my personal taste and style preferences so it’s only natural that I feel overwhelmed.
The point of course is to cut through the clutter and pick items that I WILL actually wear and that will make sense in the context of my closet. Also, my goal is to invest in pieces that reflect my style and express my individuality.
Luckily, La Koketa App has a special feature to help me shop smartly – the unique algorithm considers my personal taste in fashion, the clothes I already own and then suggests new pieces that enrich my closet and are based on my prefs. Having a smart shopper by my side for Black Friday is just priceless!
So armed with the perfect tool, I’ve devised and tested a 3-Step Outfit Plan on my digital closet that has proven to be very efficient in alleviating my shopping dilemmas.
I have a few items on my wish list whose blissful addition to my closet is long overdue so I decided to stick to this simple strategy that has worked so many times.
I just filter my fall-winter pieces on my digital closet and see what I can work with for the upcoming season. Classics, basics and luxury accessories are all IN. Also, I check which of my existing pieces will do this season according to the trends below. These are the perks of having digitized you closet, you know. Check how to easily upload your clothes with La Koketa app so you can see all your clothes on the palm of your hand.
I’ve done my research and added to my Wishlist trendy seasonal pieces that are missing from my wardrobe. This season I’ve spotted that the defining trends I can utilize are the high-neck dresses, the micro blazers and the boxy jackets preferably in black, tan or white.
This is the fun part and the right decision is just a button tap away with La Koketa app. The special “What to Wear” feature is everything you need to get through the Black Friday deals.
So, here’s the drill:
1. I go to my Wishlist section on La Koketa app.
2. Select the big jacket and then tap the “What to Wear” button.
3. Review all the outfits I can pull up with the selected jacket and my OWN clothes.
4. Rule of thumb: if I see at least 3 gorgeous outfits, then and only then do I tap the buy button!
You can repeat the drill with the other pieces on you Wishlist.
The point is clear. Do you really want to invest in a bright bag to accentuate your style? Why splurge on a shiny new dress that you would get to wear once on the New Year’s Eve?
Having a curated closet that works for you and suits your fashion needs is times more valuable than simply having many pieces hanging underutilized in you closet. Plus, by having more than one way to wear an item in an outfit would surely minimize your cost per wear. Also, don’t forget that shopping smartly is good for the environment too, not only for your budget!
