Get Your Best Look at the Mall with These Fashionable Clothing Tips

Many of you probably don’t spend much time at your local mall. But for those who do, it can be a refuge from every day, a place to get away from it all, or all three at once. However, not everyone is thrilled with how the malls have evolved over time, and fewer people frequent them as frequently as they used to.

There’s just something about them that doesn’t feel quite right; too many chain stores and not enough independent businesses catering to the needs of their community. But what if I told you there was hope?

Fortunately, it seems like some forward-thinking retailers have come around to the idea that the best way to attract new customers is by creating an accessible shopping experience that appeals to various demographics.

These include things like offering discounts on clothing and cosmetics throughout the week in order to draw more customers into their shops and encourage them to return when other sales opportunities arise. Check out these great tips for dressing your best at any mall with fashion-conscious clothing!

Bring a Listening Device

No one likes to be talked at while they’re shopping. You don’t want to waste your time listening to a salesperson trying to sell you something you’re not interested in; the last thing you need is someone breaking into your personal space and interrupting your line of thought. Instead, try bringing along a listening device like an Amazon Echo. If, for some reason, the mall stores are giving you difficulty, just ask Alexa for help. The Echo can order anything from Amazon, and it will find the closest location to deliver it.

Dress in Movement

One tip that I found particularly helpful was the idea of dressing in movement. This means wearing a piece of clothing that will look great when you are walking but also has the ability to transition well into more formal occasions. For example, a pair of leggings would be perfect for this idea as they’re casual enough to wear during your mall excursion but may also be able to be dressed up with a cute top and heels once you leave the mall.

Mix and Match Basic Pieces

When you’re shopping at your local mall, you want to be sure that you look your best. You don’t want to stand out as the only person not wearing a neon pink sweater, bright green skirt, and bubblegum-pink tights.

In order to avoid being singled out, it’s important to wear clothing that is going to blend in with the rest of the crowd. This means choosing pieces that are neutral colors like black or brown and avoiding clothing that's too busy or has catchy patterns.

Don’t Forget About Detail Work

It’s a funny thing about fashion. People often associate it with a certain image and rarely think of the wide range of options that can be taken, from trendy to classic. The key to getting a fashionable look, regardless of your style preference, is paying attention to detail and personalization.

Dressing well can be as easy as focusing on what you like in clothing and accessories and matching them up with your wardrobe. For example, if you love how some blouses or sweaters make your outfit pop, stick with those pieces of clothing and don’t worry about following trends when you get dressed. That said, staying on trend is always important by investing in new clothes that complement the current season.

Get the Right Belts

Belts are essential pieces of clothing. From a fashion perspective, they can be used to add pizzazz to an outfit and make the wearer stand out. But in terms of function, belts play a crucial role in keeping your pants up and your shirt tucked in properly. So if you don’t have one you like or know how to wear, think about checking out some tips for dressing your best at any mall with fashion-conscious clothing!

If you don’t want something too bulky or heavy on your waist, go for a thinner belt that will still offer the same functionality. If you want to go the opposite route, look for a thick belt that has some heft without being clunky and cumbersome. This way, it will balance out a baggy outfit and make sure everything stays put.

Keep Up With Heeled Shoes

It’s a given that most malls carry heels. It’s also a given that not everyone wears them. This is where you should cut loose and take the time to appreciate your shoes! If you have an outfit that calls for a pair of heels, you should keep them on hand so you don’t have to worry about looking for sneakers when it’s time to hit the mall. But if you don’t have any heels in your closet, it might be hard to find a pair that will work with your outfit. That's where these six tips can come in handy:

● Keep up with heeled shoes by checking out deals online and going out of your way to find them.

● Check out stores like The Limited or H&M when they go on sale in order to find cheaper pairs of shoes

● Keep an eye on clearance racks at places like Macy's or JCPenney; they offer up some really great discounts.

● Consider going barefoot if wearing heels is too much of a hassle

● Find comfortable flats that still look fabulous by browsing through something like Nordstrom Rack

Sneakers are an inevitability at the mall

All indie and high-street stores should consider having their own sneaker section. Not only will it appeal to a younger demographic, but this will also ensure that they’re always on hand if you need a new pair of shoes in an emergency.

Bottom Line

The mall is still a popular destination for many people, but not everyone is pleased with how it has evolved as of late. The good news? Some retailers are coming around to the idea that the best way to attract new customers is by creating an accessible shopping experience that appeals to various demographics. Bottom line: Know what you’re looking for when you go shopping at the mall and dress your best!
