You may be thinking of shopping for clothes to celebrate the end of the state of alarm or you also want to make the most of the summer sales, but the pandemic is still latent and we may find fashion stores where you can try on clothes you do not possible or have too many hygiene and safety measures.
All this may make us have to buy the clothes without being able to try them on, so we are going to help you with some tips so that you can be right when buying the clothes.
HOW TO SHOP WHEN YOU CAN'T TRY ON CLOTHES
When it comes to going to stores in times of coronavirus, trying on clothes can be a problem and although normally stores leave us a margin of between 15 days and 1 month to return clothes that is not our size or that we finish convincing once we have bought it. We can also be guided by some simple guidelines that will help us to get right with all the clothes we buy.
LOOK FIRST IN THE ONLINE STORE
Before going to the store to buy you can take a look at the garments in the online store. In this way you will be able to see images of how the model wearing the garment that interests you fits, and what sizes are available. It will be a matter of then going to the store and asking the clerk for the garment in question, thus reducing the time you spend in the store and without the need for a fitting room.
COMPARE WITH OTHER GARMENTS OF THE SAME FIRM
If, for example, you go for a Zara dress or a Mango T-shirt and you already have similar garments from the same firm, check the size of these before going to buy. The design or fit may vary slightly, but it is rare for you to make a mistake with the size.
ESTABLISH YOUR BODY SHAPE
There are four different body shapes, namely apple, pear, hourglass and rectangle, and you need to understand which category you belong to in order to choose the right clothes for you. Each physique, in fact, suits a different style and it would be good to avoid some garments that do not enhance the strengths. The best way to understand the shape of your silhouette is to trust an expert, but alternatively, you can easily find directions online. For example, if you have a large bust, you would do well to focus on a V-neck, while if you have wide hips, you can opt for a short dress.
ANALYZE SKIN TONE
To choose the right dress or garment, it will be essential to establish what your skin tone is and in this way, find the colors in the clothes that best suit your complexion , improving the eyes, hair and silhouette. In addition, we must bear in mind that the different tones manage to send different messages: red is very striking; pink evokes sensitivity, while black is sophisticated and is perfect for formal occasions.
SEE THE SIZE GUIDE
Each brand or firm seems to carve differently (when in fact it should not be like that), therefore, it is necessary to analyze the special guide that is provided through the online store before buying a garment without trying it. It would be good to write down your measurements on a sheet and compare them with those of the chosen garment, so as not to find yourself in the hands of a garment that in the end you end up changing.
DON'T MAKE RANDOM PURCHASES
After confinement, it is natural to want to go shopping to celebrate the end of the state of alarm, but you must be very careful, you must not give in to the temptation to buy impulsively. In fact, you run the risk of spending unnecessary money on clothes that are not really necessary. Before you go shopping, therefore, it will be good to make a list of everything you need.
