We are ordering online now more than ever. Personally, I’ve made purchases at places that I would’ve never shopped from before. From curbside pickups to free shipping, it is so easy and convenient. It is kind of hard to turn it down.
But how do you know you’re picking the right size, color, or even if it will look good on you when you get it home??? Here are some tips that can make virtual shopping easier…
Picking The Right Color
I have never been one to say whether or not a color looks good on someone based on their skin, hair, or eye color. I don’t really believe in that theory. Although, I do feel like certain colors can make your hair, eye, and skin color pop! I don’t think a color looks bad on anyone. My only rule of thumb is to not wear a top or dress that is the same color as your hair. That is if you are rocking a bold hair color like purple, blue, pink, etc. Your outfit doesn’t need to match your hair. It really shouldn’t.
Picking The Right Length
If you’re looking for a new skirt or dress, read the specifics of the item you’re thinking about buying. Check the length and measurements of the top, skirt, or dress. Or check the inseam if you’re shopping for pants. Don’t forget a tape measurer!
Picking the Right Size
Taking your proper measurements will ensure that you make the right size selection when you have the “add to the cart” moment.
How To Take Your Measurements :
BUST: Measure under the arms at the fullest point of your bra cup. Make sure to go underneath your arms.
BRA: Measure underneath the bust area.
WAIST: Measure your natural waistline (the smallest part of your waist.)
HIPS: Standing with your legs and feet together, measure around the fullest part of your hips.
Know Your Fabrics
Understanding even a little bit of fabric will help you tons. For instance, fabrics like silk, satin, and leather are not forgiving. They have no stretch so you must order your true size. However, any textile mixed with spandex will definitely give you some stretch so look for pieces like cotton mixed with spandex, rayon, polyester, etc.
