There’s no better way to beat the Monday blues than shopping at ASOS. Asos is one of my favorite places to shop because I can find some unique pieces that can’t be found anywhere else. Asos also has pieces that look designer but for a fraction of the cost. When I first started shopping on this site, it was a little overwhelming. ASOS has all. the. things. and then some but I have learned a few tricks for shopping the site. The following tips will speed up the process of your online shopping experience and help you find what you’re looking for in a fraction of the time. So call out of work sick today and #treatyoself (I kid, I kid)
#1. Start a saved items list. A saved items list will allow you to look through everything with a quick glance. You can add things to the saved items list by clicking on the heart at the bottom of the photo. After you have looked through everything, you can go to the saved items list and narrow down your choices. The saved item list is beneficial in so many ways. It allows you to save all the items you like and then you can go back and look at them all together. When you look at them all together, you may notice that you saved three items that are very similar (I almost always do this when I shop). When you look back over the items, you can pick your favorites and add to your cart right from this list. This will also help you monitor your spending (I need help in this area).
#2. Determine what you’re looking for (tops, dresses, etc.). I always start with new in section. In the menu narrow it by size, and then further narrow it by range, I use Main Collection because I can’t wear tall or petite. Narrowing by size weeds out the items that are not available in your size eliminating the disappointment when you find a great item but it’s sold out in your size. You can continue to narrow down your choices by color and price range. For example, if I am looking for a white top in size 6 for $30 or less, I can narrow it down from 3,900 choices to 132 choices.
#3. Watch the video featured with each item. It allows you to see how the clothing moves when it is worn and will show you how the pieces should fit.
#4. Pay attention to the model’s height in the description. Some models are 5’10,” and some are 5’5″. Compare their height to yours to get a realistic idea of where each item will hit on your body.
#5. Use the live chat feature if you any questions about the product. You can also use this feature for questions about delivery, returns, and technical issues. This feature is accessed by clicking the Help & FAQS in the top right corner of the site.
#6. Sign up for the Premier Delivery. For $19/year you get 2-day delivery and free returns on every order you place. The return policy is 28-days, and the envelope that it comes in is resealable (open the package along perforated lines when you receive it).
#7. If you love an item, don’t hesitate. Items and sizes sell out quickly. If you have signed up for the Premier Delivery, you can always return it if it doesn’t work out once you receive it. The Premier Delivery allows you a little more freedom in your purchasing decisions because you can return it free or you can order it later with no additional shipping charge. On the flip side, if you’re unsure about an item, leave it in your saved items list and think about it. If you’ve signed up for the Premier Delivery, you can always order it once you have made up your mind. (If it’s sold out later then take it as a sign from the universe that you didn’t need it and move on.)
These are my shopping tips for ASOS. I spend 15-30 minutes a week shopping on this site, and I have found so many good things. My favorite for summer has got to be their dresses. So many cute ones.
