Girls love clothes. Well, most girls, that is. If your mother, sister, wife, best friend or girlfriend loves self-expression in the form of fashion, then gifting her with a new dress or a top and skirt ensemble is a great idea. However, unless you’re a girl, buying women’s clothing can prove to be a daunting task. To ensure that your loved one will love your gift, make sure to read the following hints:
Learn Her Fashion Style
No matter how expensive or trendy the items you choose may be, your gift’s recipient may not get to wear it if she doesn’t like it in the first place. To put your money into good use as much as to please the person you’re gifting, choose your gift item wisely. Be more observant of her fashion sense. What does she like? Does she like flair and sass, or is it simple and elegant? What about comfort? Does she like oversized shirts and yoga pants? Or does she prefer skinny jeans and tank tops? Does she prefer jeans or skirts, or perhaps a little bit of both? Does she have a conservative or a more buoyant personality? Taking these things into account will make it so that the dress you spend time and money on won’t be left hanging and unused in the closet.
Choose Prints, Colors, Fabrics and Designs She Usually Wears
Think about what she likes wearing. Does she like plain and simple, or does she prefer floral or paisley prints? Consider her hair colour and skin complexion as well. Choose colours that will look great on her. Also, consider her size and shape. If the lady in question is on the curvier side, black and other dark colours have a slimming effect. You’ll be surprised at how many tastefully designed printed dresses and tops have been created to tone down an otherwise much too voluptuous figure. If she has a slender figure, there are also many flattering dress styles that play up her modest curves. Whatever her body type and size, the point is to do the necessary research to give her only the best. Considering her age will also help you pick the appropriate style.
Again, being observant is a trait that is truly indispensable when gift shopping. More than having analysed your loved one’s fashion sense, body type, skin and hair colour, etc., find out what she needs. Perhaps her favourite dress is getting old, or a favourite cardigan got spoiled or stained during an excursion. Your keen attention to detail will give your choice of gift a more personal touch, making the recipient appreciate it more. After all, a gift’s sentimental value is magnanimously more important than a bigger price tag.
Get the Size Right
There’s nothing more embarrassing than finding out that the women’s clothing you chose to gift your loved one does not fit. Unfortunately, the recipient often feels double the embarrassment. Gift a woman with a dress that is too small, and she might take it that you’re implying for her to lose weight. Gift a woman a dress that is too big, and she might conclude that you see her that way. To avoid this predicament, find out the correct size by asking around in your most subtle way. Her closest friends and family members are a great means to getting the right information.
