EBAY Shopping Tips: How to Build a Work Wardrobe With EBAY

Below I’m sharing a few EBAY shoppings tips to use when you want to build a work wardrobe. I shop EBAY all the time to find good deals. I first discovered the site as a college student and have found great work pieces during my transition from student to working professional. Here are the tips I used when building my work closet, I hope you find these helpful.

  1. Have an idea of what you want your work style to look like. Knowing what you want your work style to reflect and what pieces you need will help you narrow your searches and find what you want instead of performing blind broad searches . 

  2. Know your correct measurements/sizes: Before I started purchasing from EBAY, I ensured that I knew my exact measurements and size. If I was interested in a particular item or items and wasn’t sure about the size, I emailed the sellers for clarification. I also knew what size I wore in my favorite brands.

  3. Purchase from Reputable Sellers: We live in a world of online reviews, and it’s particularly important on EBAY. Read seller reviews and check ratings before purchasing from someone. When you find sellers that you like, remember to save the to your favorites. This will also help you to tailor your searches in the future. 

  4. Have a realistic budget for EBAY shopping: Be mindful that it’s more reasonable to build a wardrobe piece-by-piece when you’re just starting out. While you might be tempted to get everything in a single haul      

  5. Focus on foundational pieces first: When I first started purchasing work wardrobe pieces purchased suits,   basic separates and a few work dresses. I focused on the workwear foundations first and built  the rest of my wardrobe around them.
