How To Make The Most Of Fashion And Shopping Online

By Andrea Dilea

Finding the latest fashion and shopping online gives many consumers added convenience, especially for those who would prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of the local mall and clothing stores. However, buying clothing online can also be tricky when it comes to find the best overall fit, style and color from what we assume based on the item’s description and picture.

Knowing your measurements is more important than you might think, especially when it comes to ordering off the internet. Often times, sizes can vary from one brand to the next, even by color, often leaving things either too big or too small. Since you can’t try on clothing as easily as you can in stores, unless you want to pay return fees in most cases, you can better your chances for finding the right look and fit by making sure you’re prepared.

You can enlist a friend or relative to help assist you with taking your measurements, or even have a professional do the job for you such as a tailor. There are also numerous tapes available online that are inexpensive and some that are designed for one person to use, whether for weight loss benefits or clothing, and lock into place for an accurate reading. Measure your bust or chest, arms, shoulders, inseam, hips, waistline, from neck to hemline, and neck to hips in order to get more accurate sizing.

You can achieve a lot with your appearance by making sure that the clothes you buy fit properly and complement your figure. Often enough, people tend to select pieces that don’t fit correctly or even make them look heavier than they actually are. By selecting the right shapes, you can actually appear more lean and slender. For example, someone with a large bust size or who is broad shouldered may benefit from halter or v-neck tops versus ones that bear a high neckline.

Knowing what colors go well with your skin tone is also key, though keep in mind that pictures online may vary from how colors actually look in reality. Colors are broken up into 4 different categories that are based on the season: spring, summer, autumn and winter. Winters, for example, are usually rich, jewel tones such as sapphire, ruby red, emerald and often suit are those who have cool or blue undertones to their appearance. Summers are also bright in color, but a lighter version of cool-type hues, while spring and autumn have more yellow in it, being anything from warm pastels to burnt, fall-like colors and browns.

Try to hold an off-white or ivory-colored piece of paper or fabric under your face while in front of a mirror, then try a pure-white paper. Make sure that you stand in front of natural light, such as sunlight, and avoid florescent lighting. The trick is to see which version brightens your complexion and eyes, and which one makes you appear sallow-looking. It may also help to also wear a shirt in the same hues to avoid confusion, or even just the shirt.

If you do well with the pure-white material, then you have cool, blue undertones and would do well with either summer or winter color palettes. If you happen to do well with ivory or off-white, then you are more than likely better complemented by warmer, more yellowish undertones and fall under spring and autumn. Summer and winter colors are often bright colors or jewel tones, while autumn and spring are often anything from pastels to burnt oranges and red, or fall-like hues with yellow undertones in general.

While you’re shopping for clothes, regardless of which site you opt to go with or prefer, it’s always a good idea to read fashion and shopping reviews that are left by customers who have previously tried the item. This is a great way to see how they felt about the product and it gives you a head’s up on what to expect when it comes to the actual color, fit and quality, which can sometimes be off when viewed through a monitor screen or with descriptions.
