Have you already planned out your outfits for the upcoming Holiday events? If not yet, we’ve got some cool tips on where to buy the trendiest fashion items you would love to have!

Fashion is a timeless concept that people embrace regardless of background and culture. Outfits and trends are not restricted only to a particular country. Nowadays, anyone can wear whatever they want to. Moreover, with the increasing number of fashion influencers from different social media sites, more people are getting more inclined to improve their styles - visuals-wise and in quality. 

Many may not know it, but Canada is a big influencer in the fashion industry. According to recent data, an average Canadian household spends nearly $3,400 on clothing and accessories. Additionally, Canadian consumers do not only purchase from stores in Canada. Some travel to neighboring countries to get more access to a wider range of clothing brands, especially the United States, which ranks fourth among the leading countries in the fashion industry.

With online shopping, purchasing goods from the US has been made easy! And with Shippsy, shipment from US to Canada is designed to give a great shipping experience every Canadian customer deserves.

Read this article to get more ideas about where to purchase your next fashion item from the US and how to use Shippsy’s services to send your shipment from US to Canada.
