If you are looking for men or women's apparel and accessories department stores. You can also choose stores that specialize in specific types of apparel and accessories such as dress clothing or sports apparel. Shopping at the appropriate store will narrow down your options and make your shopping trip faster and easier.

Step 2

Size

Know the size of apparel and accessories you wear and are looking for. If shopping for yourself, have an idea of the size you wear but try on the items before purchasing them to make sure they fit properly. Sizes can vary by store, so if you wear one size in one brand or store, you may not wear that size in another. If shopping for someone else, ask they what size they wear and find appropriate size in the store. Save the original receipt or ask for a gift receipt when checking out in case the item doesn't not fit the person you bought it for.

Step 3

Price

Always compare products from several different stores to make sure you are getting the best price on the apparel and accessories.

Step 4

Convenience

Shop at your local malls and department stores first and if you cannot find what you are looking for, consider traveling to malls and stores at nearby cities or shopping online. Shopping online for apparel and accessories may provide more style option and be more convenient, but it will take longer to receive your items and you will have to pay for shipping. You can take advantage of online coupons to help you save money on the items and on the shipping cost.

Shop are apparel and accessories store that you know sell or produce good quality products. If you do purchase an item that is not good quality, check the return policy to see if it can be exchanged or refunded.
