Have you ever seen a look you love and then headed straight over to eBay to see if you can find a similar item at a fraction of the price? If so then you’re just like me, you want a quality item but know that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get it.
I’ve recently bought SO many things from eBay which I’ve seen for sale elsewhere but am just too tight to buy, now I’m not saying that eBay is ‘cheap’ or doesn’t provide good quality products. What I’m saying is they provide products that are of equal or better quality than items that I’ve paid nearly an arm and a leg for!
That’s why I’ve chosen to talk to you about eBay’s ‘Shop the Look’ feature that not only allows you to buy items you love but it allows you to see them as part of an outfit and click directly on links to buy the item, whilst seeing what the item would look great paired with!
What I really love about this feature is that for example in the middle ‘look’ above there is a black knit jumper, rather than showing you just one jumper you can buy it gives you a couple of options so you can choose your favourite. This is perfect as you no longer need to compare items when eBay does this for you with little or no effort on your behalf… plus it shows you other items such as shoes, jackets, bags and accessories which you MUST have if you’re planning the perfect outfit.
If you wish to expand your search further you can do this by clicking ‘shop’ where you can; select your size, location, brand, style, price & well you name it…the options are nearly endless! By looking at the image below you can see that the options are on the left hand side.
Whilst writing this post I too have found several items to add to my eBay wish list through the ‘save this search button’ and by adding them to my watch list. You can never have too many clothes and accessories right? Especially when they are affordable it’s acceptable to have them in multiple colours isn’t it? Yep, okay I thought so too… one of each for me.
Another thing I LOVE about the ‘Shop the Look’ feature is there’s a category for every occasion for example: I’ve been struggling with Winter inspiration so clicked on the ‘Big knits looks’ tab on the left hand side (see below image) and was presented with multiple cosy looks that I could use as inspiration for the upcoming months and by hovering over the items I could start shopping for the looks straight away without leaving the eBay site.
If you follow me on social media you’ll know that whenever I need new bits and bobs, comfy tees or something to wear out that often the item of choice has been bought from eBay, so this post shouldn’t come as a shock to you or be far from my usual posts.
Okayyyy maybe I shouldn’t have clicked on knitwear because I want EVERYTHING… Anyway back to telling you how much I love this feature. It’s coming up to Christmas (yes I said it and no I’m not sorry) and if you aren’t already planning your outfits for Christmas do’s and nights out then eBay has got you covered. There’s a section on ‘Cocktail party looks’ with outfit choices for all ages, styles and fashions. As I’ve mentioned before, the feature is really easy to get around and narrow down your search whilst giving you visual inspiration.
This was a look I created by styling my £4 mesh wrap top bought from eBay with some of my favourite pieces to create a look perfect for ‘going out’.
If you’re wondering if this look is available on mobile I can’t find the section on the app however this is the link that works best for mobile, so what are you waiting for?
That’s all from me today and I’m hoping you too will now head over to eBay and browse their ‘Shop the Look‘ section for some easy & fun shopping, this link is the best link for desktop browsing.
Thank you for reading,
