How to Achieve Shopping Success on ASOS

Online shopping is just part of modern day life and something most of us take part in daily, but sometimes it can be hard to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Some online sites are easier to navigate than others, so I thought I’d share my top tips for achieving shopping success on different popular sites, and I’m going to start today with ASOS.

Start with a Plan

ASOS is often a first stop when you want new clothes, and I often find myself wandering on to ASOS when I don’t really know what I want, which can often lead to finding nothing because I have no plan.

The best way to not get overwhelmed by the selection of clothes on ASOS is to go on with a plan. 

Use social media like Instagram or Pinterest, or magazines to decide what look you want and what items you need so you know where to start on ASOS.


One of my favourite parts of shopping on ASOS is how specific you can filter your results.

If you have a clear idea of what you want, you can filter down so you only see results that match you size, Budget, brands you like and more. 

Adding as many filters as you can will help you maximise your chances of finding your perfect item.

Search by Brand

One of the selling points of ASOS is how many brands you can shop in one place, and I find one of the best ways to find some great pieces on ASOS is the shop by brand.

You can scroll through all the brands on both the app and the website, and then just browse the products from your chosen brand, meaning you’re not distracted by brands that don’t work for you.

You’re more likely to find some great buys that fit well and look good when they arrive if you can shop the brands you like the most.

The best way to feel like you’ve had a successful shop is to save money, so bagging a discount online is a great way to do that! 

ASOS offers so many different discounts, including a 10% student discount so you can pretty much always save money, even on big brands that you’d usually struggle to get a discount on! 

Size Guides 

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending money online, waiting for it to arrive and then trying it on and realising it isn’t a good fit.

We often just guess our size and hope for the best but size guides are the best way to ensure online shopping success because they can help you pick the perfect fit.

ASOS has a great selection of size guides, and a lot that are tailored for different brands so you can get the best possible fit in every item.

ASOS is a great place for all your online fashion shopping and they also have a free returns policy which is great if you’re not quite sure what you’re looking for. 

I hope these tips have helped you if you’re breaking into the world of shopping on ASOS or you want to have a little more success.

Let me know if you there’s any other online shops you want some shopping tips for!
