Things You Need To Keep In Mind When Buying Shirts

Shirts are important. Not only do they cover the top part of your body but they also play a crucial role in establishing your personal sense of fashion.  Wearing them is an easy way of showing off your style without making it seem obvious. Shirts are also considered as wardrobe essentials for the fact that you can wear them everywhere. Whether it’s a t-shirt, pullover, or even a sleeveless shirt, it should be your fashion best friend regardless of your age or gender.

However, shirts can also fail you if you chose the wrong size or fabric to wear. Unfortunately, a lot of people underestimate the power of a well-fitting shirt.  Whether it’s your cluelessness or carelessness, these things can hinder you from getting the most of the shirts you’re wearing. Luckily, we compiled a quick guide that can help you the next time you buy a fresh set of shirts. And since we’re already on that matter, here they are.

  • Know your Body Type And Measurements

  • Bodies come in different shapes and sizes. And though there are shirts that are available in fit-everyone size, knowing your measurement and body type can help you a lot. Wearing shirts that are too large or too small will only make you look foolish and not stylish at all.  Having a lot or little to no space when wearing a shirt can either erase or unflatteringly show certain assets that you should be showing off in the right away. That’s why before you even decide on which shirt you should buy, you should first make sure you have the right size to get the perfect one.

 

  • Fabric’s Type & Quality

  • Another thing you should keep in mind is the fabric details of the shirt you’re going to buy. You should equip yourself with enough knowledge on which fabric types are comfortable and which ones can make your shirt look expensive. It is recommended to stay away from shirts made of 100% polyester because they’re shiny, gets flimsy over time and they tend to stick to the skin. Choose cotton or a combination of other fabric types for a better shirt experience and quality.

 

  • Your Purpose

  • Yes, believe it or not, your reason for buying a shirt should also play a factor when you’re about to purchase one. Are you looking for something you’re comfortable with or something that you can use for a long time? Keep in mind when and where are you going to shirt before you buy it. Just remember, it's always comforting over style. Buy the shirt you feel good in.

 

  • Mind The Style/ Design

  • Last but certainly not the least, is the design. Though it’s comfort over style, you should still buy a shirt that appeals to you a lot. Shirts can be a reflection of your personal sense of fashion, so make sure it looks good on you.
