Most of the girls fall into the situation of fashion over-buying. So what causes you to foolishly waste money on such purchases? Let us help you to find out why.
1. Due to the Diderot effect
The Diderot effect is one of those concepts that are not very familiar to many people in. However, this effect can be roughly explained as “newly opened.” You feel that after buying a new item, the old item is no longer suitable for this new item, and you immediately think of replacing all the new items.
This effect creates a shopping spiral that makes you want to buy more and more day by day, and you cannot stop. What’s worth mentioning here is that things you buy are often things you’ve never needed before or bought but never used.
2. Due to the Snob effect
For many girls, seeing their friends own things that they do not have is a really uncomfortable feeling. It is so uncomfortable that they have to decide to own it, regardless of whether the item is suitable for their hobbies, body shape and above all their economic conditions. Your logic is that you have to follow the trend, you can’t be inferior to anyone else.
3. Buy now, use later
Many girls have very positive thoughts. It can be seen by the fact that they are willing to spend on not suitable size fashion items with the desire to be possible to wear them in the future. Or they just buy it for special occasions. But in fact, on such occasions, girls will often forget these items and go buy a new one instead.
