5 Tips To Help You Shop For Clothes Online

Although online shopping has become very popular in the last number of years, with more and more people flocking to the Internet to buy anything from groceries, to furniture, people are still a bit apprehensive when it comes to shopping online for clothes. A lot of people cannot understand how you can decide a garment would look good on you without trying it on first, which is understandable. But there are many benefits to shopping online for clothes, including massive deals, which should tempt anyone to try clothes shopping online.

In this article I would like to share my 5 tricks to help you shop online for clothes, so that you are satisfied with your experience, whether you choose to keep the items you buy or not!

1. Read The Product Description Carefully

At first this might sound pretty obvious, but I myself am very much guilty of ‘quick glance shopping syndrome’. When shopping online you browse around the websites looking at pictures of products, and once you see a picture of something you like, you might not read the entire product description in detail. You might simply read the item summary, without going into the nitty gritty detail of the product. This is a big mistake, as the description might contain information about the product which might not appeal to you, and which would influence your purchasing decision. It might also give some clues about the sizing and fit of that particular garment.

Once in fact, I bought a …

5 Reasons to Fashion Shop Online

5 Reasons to Fashion Shop Online

When the Internet was young, people didn’t shop online. There were many reasons for this; not least because the general public didn’t have a clue how to use the Internet (or indeed a computer), but also horror stories of card fraud and identity theft populated the headlines.

Then, with the advent of sites such as Amazon, consumer confidence increased as did their knowledge of how to navigate websites. But it wasn’t until the late 90’s that clothing and fashion websites started to appear.

Having being dismissed as a potential online business model, clothes shops began proving that people ARE willing to buy their t-shirts, jeans and whatever else through websites, and not just in-store. This paved the way for a great many websites offering their products online, and with it, a shedload of consumer advantages…

Shopping for clothes online is brilliant because:

1) You can browse all the brands under the sun in the space of 30 minutes – which would certainly take you all day on the high street!

2) Comparison shopping has been made much easier, with the introduction of specially designed websites that compile regularly updated lists of new products and where to find them at their cheapest prices.

3) Giving away your e-mail address to a mailing list gives you regular access to offers and news. This is better than receiving it through the post as it’s more up to date and is more environmentally friendly.

4) Short of actually trying the clothes on, more and …

My Vintage Spring/Summer 2011 Vintage Trend Report

My Vintage Spring/Summer 2011 Vintage Trend Report

As London Fashion Week draws to a close and New York seems a distant memory, we give you all the best tips for dressing on trend the vintage way…

70’s Chic

This season, the catwalk is full of seventies inspired designs – and we love it! But this revival is less disco and boho secretaries are sexier. Imagine thin and smooth pussybow blouses paired with long pants or high waisted shorts. Large floppy hats and hippy dresses will certainly be a summer staple and maxi dresses are here to stay. Another recent resurgence trend is a jumpsuit that will be bigger than this year. And don’t let us forget wedge heels – summer footwear must!

Bold color

Black is good and good but we are very happy to see the bright and bold colors return to the runway! Especially orange, yellow, blue and pink beams! There are some great vintage findings in bright colors. For oranges and yellows, the best era is the swinging sixties era and the electric pink and blue colors are no more than eighties and separate cocktail dresses. Take color and experiment – the brave will conquer this summer!

Elegant bare

To get a finer trend in 2011, being naked and sheer is a must. If you are pale-skinned, then stick to creamy white nudes, tanned and olive-skinned girls should turn toward peach-skinned nudes and mixed races and dark skin color should be used to bare with golden color. Think of light chiffon, thin silk and …

Vintage Style Clothing – Making a Fashion Statement

Choosing vintage style clothing allows you to create the image you want to create, one that is uniquely you.

Making a statement means not finding others wearing your same outfit. We all cringe at the thought of seeing ourselves coming and going. I remember, at my high school graduation party, seeing another girl wearing the exact same dress as me. I wanted to disappear.

You can avoid that disaster by choosing a vintage style dress and pairing it with a genuine vintage handbag or shoes.

Vintage Style Clothing - Making a Fashion Statement

Or choose vintage-like accessories to add to an authentic vintage dress.

In either case, you are placing elements that surprise and add to the costume. You are making a fashion statement. You are recognizing truly dated clothes and adding the touch that brings them up-to-date.

There’s lots of leeway for you to personalize your style by picking what is comfortable and looks right on you.

You can also create your own vintage style clothing by using something you currently own and redesigning it with a updated flair.

Or you can take a picture of a genuine vintage dress and make it or have someone make it for you adding an up-to-date fabric and design.

By going vintage, you don’t have to look like anyone else. But, buyer beware, you also don’t want to look old-fashioned.

Vintage style clothing consists of pieces that are inspired by authentic fashions of yesteryear. Making a fashion statement requires a style sense and a knowledge of fashion history.
