Even teens who focus on their summer beach time know about the looming U.S. debt crisis. On a personal note, they know that means another year of honing their ‘frugal fashionista’ skills when it comes to buying teen apparel.
While many local retailers are price-cutting left and right to improve the dismal summer sales, there are other options.
Check out the online options that may not have a presence at your local mall. Appearing easily in response to your Google inquiry tell you that you are dealing with savvy marketers who know online ‘real estate.’ If so, they’re savvy enough to offer competitive temptations to make frugal fashionistas smile.
Take, for example, the new fall fashion accessories trends. It’s all about ethnic, artisanal bracelets, worn alone or stacked up your arm. Many are selling at prohibitive prices at the mall teen apparel stores.
Go online and you can get the real thing-from the Maasai in Kenya or native Guatemalan women- in true colors that defy comparison with the more expensive copies. The colors can be mixed and matched or uniform, your choice. These are the same looks that have been spotted on the international runways, now brought to you online, often with free shipping. Why go to the mall and pay more?
This year, perhaps more than ever, it’s about value and quality in the teen apparel market. Don’t settle for less, when online offers more.
I have personally compared mall offerings with what I’ve been able to find online and online always wins-hands down. With a little bit of Googling, you can land in some great places without ever leaving home. (And let’s face it, since you Google for homework too, it’s not a bad idea to get in some early practice before school starts. That way it won’t be such a shock to the system!)
Check out the boho chic items online. If you mix and match them creatively, you’re going to be the envy of your classmates. Colorful beads and a lace skirt–with combat boots? It definitely works today. Read the rest of this entry »
