Shopping Tips for Teens

With spring just a few weeks away, it’s time to start thinking of updating your wardrobes to make sure you have everything you need for the new season. If you’re a teen, or have a teenager, you know what a difficult task that might be. Before you head-out on your next shopping trip, try to keep these tips in mind to keep you on track, while also crossing off your latest must-have list!


Check Your Inventory 
Before you spend your hard-earned money, take note of what you currently have in your closet. Weed out clothes that are too small, or will no longer use. Then you can have a clearer view of what you really need to buy.

Set a Budget 
With a financial game plan in place you’ll be able to prioritize and avoid overspending on things you might not necessarily need.

Start a Fashion File 
Scan through your favorite magazines and take note of any outfits, trends, or styles you might like. If you see an outfit with great palazzo pants, or high-waisted jeans that you simply must have - use it as reference so you can re-create your favorite looks!

Check for Sales 
Before heading out, print out coupons, and check for sales or promotions that are currently available. This little bit of research beforehand can save you a lot of money, and make your wallet stretch even further.

Have a Game Plan 
The mall can be magical maze of clothes, shoes, and accessories. If you don’t have a game plan, you can end up spending an entire day just browsing, instead of buying. Have in mind the types of stores you want to visit, or check out stores like rue21 that will cover all your bases.

Shop Online 
Save time and gas money and shop online! It’s easier than ever to buy online with stores like rue21.com offering everything you need at a click of button. Affordable fashion at your fingertips, what can be better?
