Online shopping can be a nightmare for many of us, even if we rely on some of the most trusted brand websites. There can always be variations in sizes based on the material, and manufacturer, so it’s never easy to rely on online store sizes and get the perfect fit.
There are some things, like lingerie, the right pair of jeans, and boots, that you should never buy online due to how big of a difference a slight size variation can make. For instance, every girl knows the pain of an ill-fitting bra, a pair of boots that are too snug, and jeans that fit wrong in all the right places.
Luckily, you can still benefit from the luxury of same-day shipping and 30-day return policies that online shopping offers. Here are 10 hassle-free fashion items you can order online to level up your closet without worrying too much about sizes. Do be wary though, some of these items will require you to take measurements.
1. The Perfect Handbag
Sometimes, all you need is a sleek tote bag to bring together every to-work outfit. At other times, a cute carry-on to keep your phone and a few essentials are all you need. Whichever is more of your style, you can choose from a wide selection of bags from stores, like ALDO and H&M, for fast fashion and classic items.
It’s easy to check the dimensions of the bag you’re considering buying online, so you won’t go through a hassle when it finally arrives.
2. Spring Dresses
Although it’s crucial that you stick to buying evening wear in-store where you can try it on, casual items, like spring dresses, are easy to buy online. Nonetheless, you should stick to dresses with simple designs and have fewer straps to fit into.
3. Sweater Dresses
Sweater dresses are the embodiment of comfy casual apparel that’s okay to (sometimes) wear to work. With so many designs to choose from, you’ll have a blast scrolling through different items and choosing what colors and styles would suit you best.
Moreover, since sweater dresses are usually worn in bigger sizes, you don’t have to worry about getting the ‘perfect fit’.
4. Jumpsuits and Playsuits
Too tired to put together a whole outfit on a Monday? Your best bet is to wear a jumpsuit; they’re easy to wear, look amazing, and come in so many designs you can even wear some styles to work. Pick pastel and bold colors for a formal jumpsuit, and stick to wild prints and florals on a casual day.
Want appropriate evening wear, but hate how dresses are restrictive? A sleek jumpsuit with a classy blazer and handbag will make you look like a million bucks. Jumpsuits come in fixed sizes; so, check the brand’s size chart and measure yourself for a good fit. Don’t know where to start? Try ASOS or ZARA.
5. Basic T-Shirts
Remember when we told you how basic t-shirts are an essential for every closet? Well, you’re in luck, because you can usually order a great basic tee without too much of a hassle.
Some basic tees look awesome with a suit, while a simple scoop v-neck is sexy without being risqué. You can order these closet staples online, and the best places to start include Uniqlo and Urban Outfitters.
6. A Classy Watch
Every adult should have that one classy watch for special occasions. If you don’t, then lucky for you, you can get one online. A sleek watch with metallic elements and elegant embellishments can do a lot to bring an outfit together and make it look brand new.
As long as you know your preference, know what to look for, and have a certain taste for watches, it’ll be quite easy to get one online.
7. Silk Scarves
In search of an Avant-Garde accessory to put together a stunning outfit? Well then, a silk scarf will do great! These are one-size so there’s no hassle while ordering one online. Of course, you should check a product’s measurements before ordering it so you know what you’ll be receiving. The best place for scarves? Macy’s and Nordstrom are good options.
In addition, cozy wraps to carry along with you are a good fashion staple that you can purchase online without having to worry too much about a sizing issue.
Stockings and tights are great when you’re wearing short skirts, a cute pair of shorts, or even a dress. Luckily, you can even buy them online. A basic style item, stockings don’t go out of style, so they’re great to order online and wear along with short clothes for extra coverage.
10. Sophisticated Jewelry
Ah, chokers, earrings, and statement necklaces galore! These accessories never go out of style and there aren’t many restrictions as to sizes, so you don’t have to worry about going through the trouble of making returns.
