For some people shopping can be a form of therapy. Others can be rather annoyed by the idea of having to displace themselves in crowded areas full of clingy floor clerks who are hunting for their next commission. Well, if you can’t make it to destination, bring the destination to you! Welcome to the world of online shopping. Online retail can seem complicated and at times even scary. That's because it is ! In our opinion one of the hardest products to shop for online is shoes. Luckily, we’re here to put all of your fashion insecurities to rest. We will walk you through our four golden rules, to find the perfect pair of shoes.
Picking the appropriate color
Is your favorite online shoe store webpage open? Great, now take one last look at your outfit. Figure out what color shoes you need to match your outfit. If you are still conflicted, common go to’s are usually the darker neutrals: black and brown. Either or won’t disappoint !
Choosing the right size
This may seem very basic at first glance. I mean, how can you get your own shoe size wrong? Keep in mind that every shoe brand and style is made differently, in terms of width and length. The material used to make the shoe will also have an effect on its shape and size. Hence, checking the size guide is always a very good idea… Actually, it's a must!
Reading the reviews
While online shopping, most people have a tendency of skipping the reviews. We’ve all done it at least once or twice… Yes, even you! (I see you rolling your eyes). The point is, DON’T! Reviews are there for a reason. People that have purchased the product in the past might actually be able to give you an insight on its size, its fit and all of its other features.
Choosing the right brand can prove to be a pretty hefty task. You know how we’re constantly being told to step outside of our comfort zone. This is definitely not the time to do that. Some brands fit you better than others. The key is to know your brands. What NOT to do: venture out into the wild and purchase a brand you have never worn before. In the online world, it is better to be safe than sorry.
