2. Play Dress up
While you are checking out the size options, be sure to try on the pieces you like. Trying on an item before you buy it is an absolutely essential step that will save time and money later. Once you have the proper size and fit in-hand, pick up a second pair. Purchasing multiples of the same whenever possible allows you to always have a backup. You never know if a store might sell out an item or when items are restocked. Our need of longer sizes mean that playing dress up is absolutely necessary.
