Without doubt the easiest and most convenient way to shop is to buy clothes online. And it’s not just women’s fashions that are available at the click of a button, but even men and children, who loathe shopping, can get fully kitted out without having to get off the sofa.
While most high street shops now have an online clothing store, it means if you see an advert for something you like, you don’t have to hope it will find it way to your branch, but instead can have it straight away, no worrying about them having your size or large check out queues.
And, unlike catalogues, when you buy clothes online, you can return them in store, which means if you don’t like something, you don’t need to go through the hassle and cost of posting it back and waiting for a refund – you can get an immediate refund by simply taking your garment and the receipt to any branch of the store. Most websites even remove the postage costs once you have spent over a certain amount, which means you pay absolutely no more than you would in store. And a lot of high street online clothing store websites offer a function at the checkout for students to enter their NUS number, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on discounts. Even sales now tend to go online first, and are much less crowded, and give a far better option for sizes available, and other hard to find pieces like accessories.
