Check the Measurements!

When it comes to shopping online and loving what you buy, it’s always helpful to know your measurements! Grab your measuring tape, and compare to the retail site’s size and fit tab. Keep in mind that different brands and styles will fit differently, so paying attention to all description details, photos, as well as size and fit notes is key! Does it run small or large? What size is the model wearing? Knowing all of these components will help determine the most accurate fit.

Tip: If you are need of an item in a pinch and are still unsure about size, order more than one and return the item that doesn’t fit!

 

Know Your Fabrics!

Going hand-in-hand with reading product descriptions thoroughly and knowing your measurements, it’s a good idea to know your fabrics as well. From cotton, rayon, polyester, and beyond, the weave and weight can play a huge role in the overall fit and feel. Lightweight fabrics are great for warmer temps, and thick knits make for great cold-weather staples. Some fabrics like nylon and spandex may help create stretch (allowing a little give to the fit), while other fabrics like woven cotton or poly may not stretch at all. Get to know what fabrics and blends you love most to find pieces you’ll treasure for seasons to come!

Tip: Compare the fabric of the item you are interested in to what you already have in your closet; or when in doubt hit the interwebs – Google is your BFF!

Still unsure if you can pull off that cape or those flare jeans? Now, more than ever, social media offers an endless supply of fashion tips and styling inspiration. Browsing fashion blogs and hashtags through platforms like Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook, will help you see the same (or similar styles) worn on a variety of fashionistas!
