Online vs. In-Store Shopping

20, Mar, 19

In-store or online shopping, which one do you prefer? For some people, they love the thrill of going into a store and seeing items they want in-person. Other individuals try to avoid the stores as much as possible. It could be because shopping in stores takes too much time, or maybe because the stores can get crowded. With tons of online store options, you can easily do all the shopping you need to without ever leaving your home. Whether you are shopping for clothes, home accessories, appliances or even toys for your kids, you can find anything both online and in-stores. How you do your shopping is all a matter of preference.

At Heirloom Clothing, we know that not every woman has the time to go shopping for the things they need. This is why we have created both in-store and online shopping options so that you can shop for your favorite layering shirts anytime, anywhere. Here are a few benefits of both online and in-store shopping that women love.

Online Pros

One of the best benefits of shopping online is the convenience. You can quickly order everything that you need either for you or your family and have it shipped right to your house. Essentials like cap sleeve shirts, accessories, pants, shoes and jackets can all be found online. You can get clothes for the whole family without having to deal with crowded stores.

When shopping online, many brands offer free returns or in-store returns, so if the product you bought doesn’t fit right or isn’t quite what you wanted, you can easily return/exchange it. More and more stores are also offering free-shipping, making online shopping cheaper and more convenient than ever.

Another benefit to shopping online is you can get the best deals. Many clothing stores have special online-only discounts or will send coupons right to your email. Although some companies can clutter your inbox with emails, it's always a good idea to sign up for email lists so that stores can notify you of the best deals — how else will you know when your favorite layering shirts are on sale?

In-Store Pros

If shopping is one of your favorite past-times, then you probably love going into a store and looking at all the items. Even with all the online shopping options, in-store shopping will probably never go away because of how much people love shopping. You get to leave with your items right away, and if shopping for clothes, can try them on right in the store and not have to worry about making returns. It can be frustrating waiting a few days for that cap sleeve shirt you purchased online to arrive, all to find out it doesn’t fit right in the first place and you need a different size.

When you shop in a store, you also get the expertise of the clothing associates. Some stores offer free sizing or tailoring, something you won’t find when you order online. They can help you find the right sizes, as well as recommend certain items above others. Store associates aren’t just there to help you check out, they are trained to know how to help customers in any way possible.
Whether you enjoy shopping online, in-store or maybe even a combination of both, there’s a variety of different brands that offer all the products you could ever need. Whether you are searching for some new layering shirts to add to your closet or even a birthday gift for your best friend, there are lots of shopping options right at your fingertips.

Casual Date Night Outfits

20, Mar, 19

Everybody loves date night no matter how old you are! That feeling of a night out without any other distractions. No work, no kids, and no other commitments. However, after an exhausting day, the last thing you probably want to do is get all dressed up just for one night. Well, the good news is that you don’t have to. Dates now are very casual, so you should dress casual too.

With Heirloom Clothing’s wide selection of comfortable and flexible layering shirts, you can look chic and stylish on your date without even feeling like you changed out of your cozy t-shirt. Here are a few ways you can wear a casual yet fashionable date night outfit.

Jumpsuit or Romper

Not only are jumpsuits, rompers and jumpers really in-style right now, they are also really comfortable. If your jumper or romper has thinner straps, a solid colored layering shirt underneath can provide you with a little more coverage, so you can feel confident in your outfit all night long. If it’s a little bit cooler outside, throw a jacket over top and you will be good to go!

Black and White

Black and white is a classic combination that looks both great in casual and formal styles. A pair of black jeans with a white blouse and a white cap sleeve shirt underneath will be the perfect casual date night outfit. You can pair this with your favorite pair of sandals or fashionable sneakers, and add a pretty gold necklace for a bit of shine.

T-shirt and Jeans

You can never go wrong with your favorite pair of jeans and a simple cap sleeve shirt in your favorite color. When you wear clothes that you love and feel confident in, you won’t have to worry about feeling uncomfortable in your outfit. You will just be able to enjoy your date’s company and feel relaxed all night. A pair of fashionable sneakers or even a cute ankle boot will be the perfect shoe to complete your effortless look.

Denim Jacket and Skirt

If you are needing something slightly nicer than a casual outfit, a simple skirt paired with a denim jacket is the way to go. You can choose to wear more of a structured midi skirt, or something more straight and flowy. Add your go-to layering shirt and your denim jacket over-top for a casual yet classy look. Any pair of shoes will look great with this, but a wedge sandal will look fantastic and help show off your legs.

All Black

We mentioned that black and white was a classic combination, but black on black is another classic look that will result in a stunning outfit. A black long sleeve layering shirt tucked into a pair of black jeans or pants will look great on just about anyone. Add your favorite pair of black shoes and some metallic jewelry to get that chic black on black look.

For the most fun and exciting date night, a casual outfit is the way to go. By following these tips, you can create a bunch of different date outfits. The more outfits you have means more date nights! If you need some new casual pieces in your wardrobe, head over to Heirloom Clothing to view our selection of fashion and essential items.


Common Shopping Mistakes

20, Mar, 19

Have you ever left a clothing store feeling extremely frustrated? Maybe it was the lack of finding items you love, the extremely high prices, or even the feeling of nothing looking good on your body. Shopping is portrayed to be this exciting activity where you leave the stores with a bunch of attractive items. However, shopping can also be exhausting and discouraging. You can blame the store as much as you want for their lack of variety and low prices, but what many women don’t realize is that they are making shopping mistakes themselves. In this blog, we will cover some of the most common mistakes that women tend to make when shopping.

Don’t Know What You are Shopping For

Although its fun to just shop for no reason, you can really make a dent in your bank account if there’s not a specific item you are looking for. Before you hit the stores, really analyze your closet to see if there are any items you could use. Are you in need of a new cap sleeve shirt? Or maybe even a new pair of heels? Find your needs and purpose before anything else.

When you wander into a store without a goal in mind, you will find that you either buy stuff you don’t need, or you don’t buy anything because nothing appeals to you. Shopping is much easier and more productive if there are specific items you are looking for.

Focusing Too Much on Trends

There are some women who don’t pay attention to fashion trends at all, and some women who focus too much on fashion trends. You don’t want to be either of these women but rather somewhere in between. When you focus too much on trends, your clothes will quickly go out of style and you will find yourself shopping a lot more frequently than you need to.

Instead of only buying trendy items, look for more staple pieces. A few layering shirts can really expand your wardrobe options, as they are versatile and go with just about anything. Essential shirts like these will never go out of style, and will also look great with any trendy items you choose to buy.

Not Knowing What Looks Good on Your Body

Every woman should have a good idea of what their body shape is, as well as know what items look the best on them. If you venture into a store not knowing what items will look flattering on your body, you will spend a lot of time in the dressing room. You might even leave the store feeling frustrated that nothing worked for you. In addition to knowing what looks good on your body, you should know what brands look good on you as well.

If you don’t know what your body type is, there are many online sources that can help you figure out both your body type and clothing items that will flatter you best. One clothing item that is flattering on every body type is a layering shirt. Whether you prefer a cap sleeve shirt or more of a tank, you will fall in love with any essential shirt you wear. Start by shopping for a few of these until you are able to figure out what other clothing pieces you will look fantastic in.

If you make one of these shopping mistakes, it’s not the end of the world. By being aware of these mistakes, you will be able to improve your shopping experience and invest in pieces that will help you feel both confident and stylish. If you are shopping for some new staple pieces, check out Heirloom Clothing’s selection of comfortable and affordable layering shirts.
