A new study suggests it’s no longer too expensive to buy stylish clothes for under $1 million, but that you should avoid expensive designer clothes as they’re likely to be too hard to find.
“The fact that you can buy inexpensive clothing online is not just good for the consumer, it’s good for retailers,” said Robert Schulz, co-author of the study, published by the Association for the Advancement of Sciences.
“You have to be very selective in your shopping and you have to make sure that you’re going to get what you need.”
Schulz and his colleagues at the Institute of Advanced Study at Harvard University conducted their research using data from nearly 20,000 online shoppers.
Their study looked at items that consumers had bought online from retailers, including the brands used in high-end clothing.
“For most people, there is no reason to be worried about buying clothes online, because of the large selection of brands available,” said Schulz.
“We are now seeing a trend towards buying clothes from brands that are widely recognized in their country and around the world.
This is an important trend and one that is going to continue to evolve.”‘
We’re still a bit lost’Schulz said that consumers have to pay more for clothes because of inflation, and they’re often looking for brands that they know.
“When I buy clothes online in Australia, the prices are going up quite a bit, but in many cases, there are still cheaper prices out there,” he said.
“It is a bit like a buyer’s market, where you have some great bargains and you want to get as much as you can for as little money as possible.”
While the majority of consumers are happy to pay a little more for clothing, there’s still a lack of awareness of the prices.
“There is a lot of confusion around these prices.
We are still a little lost when it comes to what it costs to buy a piece of clothing online, and we have a lot to learn,” Schulz said.
The research comes after a similar study found that consumers were paying $10 per square metre to shop online, with online shopping increasing the number of shoppers who could afford to pay this much for clothes.
