--- Off-Season Shopping ---Should you shop for fashions for the opposite seasons (Fall/Winter fashions during Spring/Summer, and Spring/Summer fashions during Fall/Winter)? It's up to you. It isn't in any way wrong to shop for the other season(s) while one is in progress. Go get you some shorts or sandals while it's still bitterly cold outside. Buy some scarves or some fabulous furry boots while it's still 90°F at least. It is all up to you. Only problem (if any) is if you shop for seasons ahead and feel like you aren't wearing what is anticipated as being the latest trend. For example, you shop for something you think will be the hottest trend for the upcoming season, all to find out something else will be the "it" clothes/shoes/trend for a later season. Other than that, I think there is nothing wrong shopping for clothes and accessories for seasons ahead.
You can even save money by purchasing clothing for a season other than the current one. It just means you'll have to wait a bit longer to finally get to wear the item(s) proudly, but you will still be set for the other season. I say "other season" because fashion regards Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter as the primary seasons of fashion. It is why fashion shows have collections for these two fashion seasons rather than clothing for just one certain season.
IN CASE YOU'RE INTERESTED...For some advice on off-season fashion shopping, try these resources:
• off season shopping (Broke and Chic)
• "Shopping Out of Season" (Peter Lamas)
• "Shop Out of Season" (The Domestic Fringe)
I may add more resources if I find more relevant material on this topic.
This is the discussion question I pose to all of you:
Is it okay to shop for another season while one is already in progress? Do you shop for seasons ahead yourself?
That concludes this commentary piece. I hope you enjoyed this blog post of mine. At least for this post, I've shown that I can do even casual and not-as-detailed posts. Thank you for reading!
