Buy, return and repeat. Does this sound all too familiar to you? Well, I have been battling this annoying issue for years! I am such a perfectionist when it comes to my clothes, so more often than not, I find myself returning a lot of my purchases because they were not what I envisioned them to be. 

I’ve previously shared tips on how to keep the returns label at bay, but truth to be told, nothing beats seeing the pieces in real life. I relish the idea of being able to feel the fabrics, see how it falls on my body and the exact hue of the garment. 

Many of our favourite Singapore online labels understand these needs, so they are all trying to reach out to their customers through showrooms or by having pop up stores. Check out these 6 Singapore online fashion stores that you can try on before buying!
