Every person has the ability to manage his purse strings effectively. The shopping game definitely has a few rules, and you follow them if you don’t want to regret what you spend on,

    For instance,

    • Buy prudently
    • Give your ‘impulsive behavior’ a break at times
    • Purchase things that suit you, your body type, personality, etc. When you are absolutely confident about the fact that you are investing on something worth it, go ahead with the decision
    • It’s fine to be a shopaholic, but refrain from making it an incorrigible habit

    Generally women are synonymous with the term ‘mindless shoppers’. It’s high time the contemporary woman breaks the myth and shows the world that if she is capable of taking home an exorbitant pay cheque, she also has the ability to handle her finances in the most prudent way.

    Here are a few tips to on how to spend judiciously on the most essential things that make a woman look good,

    Dress - There are a variety of trends thronging the fashion arena and there will be a new ones cropping up every now and then, but what would remain unchanged is the fact that the dress will only look good on us if it suits our body type and personality. A body hugging sheath dress wouldn’t look good on someone who is plump; likewise a flowing A-line dress with an empire waistline wouldn’t accentuate the curves of someone with an hourglass figure. Determining what looks good is only possible if it’s bought with the right amount of patience, application of knowledge and experience and incorporating a mish-mash of unconventional personal taste.

    Hairstyle -Hair is the most integral feature of our body and it plays an important role in highlighting our sex-appeal. Go for a hairstyle that suits your face cut. Styles like bob with layers, long straight hair with bangs, contemporary geometric styles, etc. are very much in vogue lately.

    Accessories – Don’t accessorize for the heck of it. There are certain dresses that don’t need to be accessorized at all. The plain look is considered quite chic these days. Carry bags that complement your body structure. Large sized bags look hideous on women with small body structures. You can experiment with stylish sling bags; designer hobo bags etc. anything that suits your personal taste.
